I'm not sure what the original source for this is, but it seems to appear all over the place on the Internet, and none of the sites I looked at credited it to anyone. If I'm wrong and you know where credit goes, I'll gladly update.
This is one of the first flannels I made, before I was even a librarian. I did a few weeks of storytime subbing and I made this for a fall theme. It is always appreciated. I use Sharpies to add detail to my flannel stories, but I dab or tap the ink on rather than writing normally. Writing normally pulls of up the fibers in the felt.
|The first apple in the basket was a bright and shiny red.|
|The second apple in the basket said, "My, what a cozy bed."|
|The third apple in the basket said, "Now we two are a pair."|
|The fourth apple in the basket said, "Please move over there."|
|The fifth apple in the basket said, "Oh dear, oh me oh my. This basket looks like pastry--I think we're in a pie!"|
Why I like it:
- Talk about feelings
- Talk about colors
- Opens up a conversation about real apples
