Flannel Friday- February 14!

Hello Flannel Friday friends!  So many great submissions this week… So much so that my perfect kitten can’t stop trying to swat at my laptop :)

And to keep with the theme of the last time I hosted Flannel Friday I made another word cloud…


Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime made a Circus themes file folder guessing game.  Kathryn is using this activity for 2-5 year olds so it’ll be great in either your toddler or preschool storytimes.  I’ve never tried something like this before but next time I do a circus theme it is definitely on my to-do list!

Next we have Lisa over at Libraryland with a flannelboard to Go Away, Big Green Monster. This adorably scary monster is part of an early literacy program and will find a home in the Activity Room of Lisa’s library.

Christine at Felt Board Ideas gives us two great ideas for the classic and ear-wormy* and fantastic song Five Green Speckled Frogs! *seriously it’s been stuck in my head for two days now!

A new-to-me and incredibly adorable blog this week is Mrs. Todd at A Librarian Less Ordinary!  Mrs. Todd is incorporating PLAY in her storytime with a cars and trucks road, complete with signs!

Shawn at Read, Rhyme, and Sing (another new-to-me blog!) shared a Valentine’s Day Love Bug that you will definitely have to remember for Valentine’s Day next year!

Anne from Itsy Bitsy Mom shared her Smitten Smatching (say that five times fast!) interactive flannelboard!  I love the fun designs and colors on these mittens and socks!

Katie at Storytime Secrets adapted the poem Good Morning by Muriel Sipe for her Flannel Friday submission this week. Katie gives a couple different options for your own flannelboard as well as a pdf of her images!

Over at What is Bridget Reading? We have a great What’s in an Egg flannelboard that saves you time and allows you to pull animals from sets you may already have!

This week Katie at Storytime Katie is sharing with us one of her first flannelboards!  These Five Little Ducks and their momma are so adorable (and way better than my first flannels!) Thanks Katie!

Catch the Possibilities is hosting her own guest post for Karen Hiebert (who you’ll probably recognize from the Flannel Friday FB page!) Karen has TWO great Valentine’s Day ideas that you will have to add to your list for next year!

Anne at So Tomorrow also has a Valentine’s Day idea for us!  Anne gives us 5 different colored hearts and three different ways to use them in storytime.  Awesome for helping to keep things fresh in your storytime’s!

And last but not least we have my own Flannel Friday submission for this week!  I made a flannelboard of Eric Carle’s The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse.

Thank you for all of the wonderful submissions!  If any of the links are wrong please let me know in the comments or FB so I can fix them!!
