Flannel Friday 1/22/16: Valentine's Extravaganza

I am the lucky host of this year's Flannel Friday Valentine's Extravaganza!

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. As usual we got some great contributions, and I am very excited to share them with you.

Shawn at Read, Rhyme and Sing made a very cute love bug flannelboard. I love the interactive element to it!

The valentines that Wendy from Flannelboard Fun made are simply adorable! She also shared some great BINGO variations.

Valentine's aren't just for people! Bridget, from What is Bridget Reading?  reshared a flannelboard adaptation of  Jack Prelutsky's poem "I gave my dog a valentine". 

Storytime Ukulele shared the chords of some variations on Elvis's Love Me Tender that would be perfect for use in a Valentine's Day storytime.

Over at Fun With Friends at Storytime Kathryn is in the fast lane with her set of flannel race cars!

Jane from Piper Loves the Library provided us with two great posts. One is an interactive "No David" flannelboard. I really like how she showed how to incorporate ECRR literacy practices into David's story. She also shares her Valentine's themed mitten sorting game.

The heart shaped valentines I made early in my library career were my contribution to our Extravaganza.

Thank you to everyone who participated! For more information about Flannel Friday head over to the Flannel Friday Blog or Pinterest page. You can also follow #flannelstorytime on Twitter. Next week's roundup is hosted by Shawn at Read, Rhyme, Sing so stayed tuned for more fun next week.

  6. Thanks for hosting. I'm reposting because ALA Midwinter made me really think about how I do and don't demonstrate/share/mentor ECRR with colleagues, parents and children. ~ jane & piper
