Flannel Friday Roundup for 7/10/15: Shark Week

This week we are keeping up the yearly Flannel Friday tradition of celebrating Shark Week!

In case you aren't familiar with it, Flannel Friday is a weekly series where librarian bloggers share descriptions of flannel boards and other storytime props. This week we have some great ideas that I am very excited to share with you.

Shark themed ideas

The always wonderful Melissa of Mel's Desk provides us with an amazing new shark themed rhyme and props. Definitely saving this one for future storytimes!

At Bonnie's new blog The Buckeye Librarian, she writes about a shark puppet made to go along with the "Five Little Fish" rhyme. Welcome to Flannel Friday Bonnie!

I took a different take on "Five Little Fish" doing it as a flannel board.

Other storytime greatness

Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime shares some great snake themed activities that teach colors and help develop fine motor skills.

Over at Libraryland, Lisa has made a prop board featuring one of my favorite book characters, Pete the Cat. Terrific idea for accommodating large storytime crowds!

Storytime Katie has us covered for not one but two future holidays with her heart matching and red, white and blue flannel activities.

At Piper Loves the Library Jane shares a visit to the North Regional Library in Raleigh for storytime and more.

  1. Sorry, no shark...but I do have snakes!! Thanks for hosting,

  2. Sadly, no shark (although I did think about adding a fin to Pete).

  3. What perfect timing! I just started a blog and my coworker just did an ocean themed storytime and made the greatest shark puppet:

  4. Hi Kelly, I have a last-minute entry! It will be posted by 7am MST on Friday

  5. My non-shark flannelboard is actually hearts (I'm choosing to believe I'm early for 2016 rather than late on posting in 2015...), but it works since I heart sharks!

    And BONUS FLANNEL: I posted one last week even though there wasn't a Flannel Friday since it is my goal to post a flannelboard every week until I'm caught up:

    Thanks for hosting!

  6. Another non-shark here, although there is a photo of a Super Hero Crab! Here's what we've got. Thanks for hosting ~ jane
