Flannel Friday Roundup for August 31, 2012

This week’s Flannel Friday Roundup is full of great ideas!

Sarah of Read Sarah Read brings us “Sssss…Snakes!" I love the five slithery, spotted snakes with wiggly snake eyes.

Katie of Storytime Katie brings us “Five Little Monsters.” Even though these adorable monsters are simply made, Katie’s attention to detail gives each one a distinct personality. (One reminds me of Gumby – yes, I’m that old.)

Sarah of Read Rabbit Read shows us her twist on “Five Little Cookies.” She has stick puppet critters exchange their nickels for cookies. I love how she combines puppets and the flannel board.

Lena of Sixcranberries gives us five “Stylish Worms.” They are not just stylish but sparkly!

Welcome back to Flannel Friday posting to Anne of So Tomorrow who is a new mom and one of the great group of librarians who started Flannel Friday. She gives us her interpretation of Rob Reid’s “Old MacDonald ABCs.” She makes it versatile by going both high tech (PowerPoint) and old school (book).

Lucy of In the Children’s Room celebrates Little Mouse’s birthday with “Happy Birthday to You.” Mouse’s friend, snake, hides behind colorful cakes while a special gift is found behind the smallest present.

Lisa of Libraryland shows us how she created a most unusual prop – a “Story Time Cape.” I can see it being worn by storytelling wizards or superheros.

Monica of Ram Sam Storytime presents “Let’s Go to the Fair.” She has a rhyme about the best part of any state fair – food on a stick.

Library Quine of Loons and Quines @ Librarytime gives us a traditional Scots nursery rhyme, “Katie Bairdie Had a Coo.” She thoughtfully provides a translation. That’s one cute coo.

Mary of Miss Mary Liberrry gives us “D-U-S-T-Y (the horse)” instead of BINGO. It sounds like fun with all that neighing going on.

Nicole of Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime is also celebrating birthdays with “Five Birthday Candles.” The children will have fun blowing those candles out. Her cake is fantastic. Be sure to note the puffy paint sprinkles.

Shawn of Read Rhyme and Sing has a rhyme that uses books as props – “How Many Books Are on Your Shelf?” Having children guess the book titles adds to the fun.

Kay Leigh of Storytime ABC’s has a song sung to the tune of “I’m Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee” with “A Baby What?!??!!!” An adorable critter hatches from a “round giant egg.”

Thanks everyone for such creative ideas!
