It's time to share all the great ideas contributed for this week's Flannel Friday!
Anne from sotomorrow shared how she uses puppets with the song "I Had a Little Rooster". This would work perfectly in a farm or animal themed storytime. I especially love the way she props the puppets on bookends so she can feature more than one puppet at a time.
Over at Fun With Friends at Storytime Kathryn has some wonderful songs and rhymes related to teddy bears. Her teddy bear train flannelboard combines two perrenial kid favorites: bears and trains.
Maggie from Playing the Hits shared her Ready for Spring Flowers. I like the variety of textures and colors she incorporates. A terrific addition to upcoming spring storytimes!
Storytime Katie provided us with two great ideas this week. The first is her counting windows. These will definitely come in handy for any and all counting rhymes! Katie also posted about a version of "Where is Thumbkin" that features trucks. "Where is Truck" is bound to be a hit with vehicle loving toddlers and preschoolers.
At Storytime Sparks, Sandy explains how she uses Valentine themed window clings to tell a Five Little Bears rhyme. Using window clings is such a wonderful idea and I can't wait to try it myself!
Mollie has some very cute bathing penguins at What Happens in Storytime. Definitely keeping this one in mind for future polar animals storytimes.
Speaking of penguins, I contributed my "Four Little Penguins Riding on a Sled".
Well that's all for this week! Next week's roundup is hosted by Katie from Storytime Secrets. Check there for updates. For great ideas in the meantime you can always check out Flannel Friday on Pinterest and Facebook, or follow #flannelstorytime on Twitter.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Valentine's Day!
