I know this sounds ridiculous, but I felt like I was opening presents as I clicked on each link for this week's roundup. It was like they were all gifts given to me, and I was thrilled and delighted to open each one.Of course they aren't just for me, but they certainly are gifts--to all of us and all those we share them with. Enjoy!
See! It was like Lisa at Libraryland knew that I too LOVE Mo Willems. She flannelized Mo's The Pigeon Loves Things That Go and gives us tips for adding a literacy element to post-storytime play.
Farm livin' is the life for Sharon at Rain Makes Applesauce. Check out her adaptation of Cock-a-Doodle Quack Quack by Ivor Baddiel. (Yep. Sharon must know I'm a HUGE Green Acres fan.)
Erin at Falling Flannelboards show us that the wordless book Where's Walrus? makes a great hiding flannel (Is that an official Flannel Friday phrase-"hiding flannel"? I think it deserves an official entry.) While I don't have any special affinity for Walruses, I do love wordless books.
Andrea at rovingfiddlehead added a button to her Little Mouse pieces to give us the Spanish language Debajo de un Botón.
Whooooooo loves owls? Yep, I do. Bridget has five little ones on What is Bridget Reading?
Lucy In the Children's Room reminds us how to make a little board book work for storytime....flannelize it! She helps Skippyjon Jones flex his muscles with Shape Up.
Katie at Story Time Secrets made a beautiful silver moon she will be using throughout the summer for Dream Big-Read. She adapted Mr. Sun to bring us Mrs. Moon and shares several more moon songs and rhymes.
Courtney over at Courtney Loves Bobo wrote an original rhyme to go with Miss Meredith's 10 Little Fireflies velcro story board.
It's all good over at Read It Again! Sarah show us how to add special effects to our storytime with Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. The buttons actually pop off. You've got to see it!!
You'll find some festive felt ribbon rings at Mel's Desk. Melissa has step-by-step instructions on how to make your own along with lots of ideas on how to use them for your Fourth of July storytime.
Erin created a simply fabulous shape crown for her Princesses and Dragons storytime. See the entire storytime at Librerin.
This is not your everyday Little Mouse story. Jane at Piper Loves the Library shares the story of Daddy Mouse who is in search of his Father's Day cupcake. Sure, there's a green house and an orange house, but there is also a pirate house. How cool is that?
Kay at Storytime ABC's shares one of her favorite color stories The Crayon Box that Talked. See how she uses her magnet board and double-sided to tape to layer the illustrations as she tells the story.
Miss Tara has gone bananas! She has flannelboard pieces to go with the book Beautiful Bananas. See her entire banana storytime at Storytime with Miss Tara.
My contribution is of the non-flannel variety. We use the Melilssa and Doug cutting food for this one, but you could easily make flannel pieces. The kids love sharing my veggies!
One for Me and One for You by Shawn Wolf
I have a bright orange carrot,
I wish that I had two.
But if I cut this carefully,
There’s some for me.....and some for you!
