Today, Miss Meg’s Storytime is hosting a post from Laura Chipman!
I absolutely love Purple Little Bird by Greg Foley and thought that it would make a great flannelboard. I drew the characters freehand, cut them out of felt, and added details with puffy fabric paint.
While I have done the whole book as a flannelboard story, I have also used just the parts I wanted. This one was part of a “Whose House Is It?” storytime. I read Purple Little Bird by Greg Foley, Flora’s Surprise by Debi Gliori, Too Tall Houses by Gianna Marino, and Duck at the Door by Jackie Urbanovic.
For the flannelboard I put up the felt pieces for the cave, the mountain, the desert, the pond, and the tree.
“I bet the camel lives in the tree.” I got a resounding, “No!”
“I know. The goat lives in the pond!”
“Maybe the possum lives in the cave.” The kids really loved it. I mixed them up a few times before they helped me put the animals in the right places.
“There we go. Everybody is back in their favorite home. Thank you for helping me!”
Thank you to Miss Meg for allowing me to do a guest post on her blog. I enjoyed being a part of
