Flannel Friday April 11th 2014

I am delighted to once again be hosting all of the delightful ideas, tips, and tricks for this week's Flannel Friday. There's some great stuff this week (as usual!). Clip-art, flannel--the materials don't matter so much as how you use it!  And here we go:

Props, Games, and Other

Linda from Notes from the Story Room presents something new and exciting--an original "Origami and Tell" story, Sally Square that combines shapes, storytelling, and origami!

Over at Itsybitsymom, Anne shares a very simply stoplight prop and a fun Stoplight Song game that will work perfectly with those itsy bitsy storytimers.

Flannelboard Stories, Rhymes, and Songs

Ms. Kelly at the Library shares her lovely summer (think green!) butterflies for Five Little Butterflies 

Get out your glitter glue and fancy felt, Kathryn's update to her story, A Gift for Mommy will satisfy all your glittery needs.

It's always nice to see Melissa, the brains behind Flannel Friday, return to us! This week, she shares some cutie cute (and quick!) Rainbow Ducklings

Jenna from Stories with Ms. Jenna demonstrates the valuable technique of reusing flannel pieces you've already made to tell new stories in her version of The Old Woman and Her Pig

Book Adaptations

Miss Tara takes on a project I've always wanted to do, but have been too daunted to take on! She does a simply gorgeous job adapting Caps For Sale to felt!

Miss Kristen from Library Village does a lovely job using clip art to adapt a too-small-for storytime book, Owen's Marshmallow Chick.

Another adaptation of a too-small-for-storytime book, this time a board book, comes from Lisa at Libraryland: Orange Triangle Fox--a great choice for a shape or color storytime.

Lisa at Thrive Over Three demonstrates how out-of-print books can have new life through flannel board adaptations in her reworking of the superhero(!) story, Captain Pajamas

Inspired by Flannel Friday

Let's all fall down the "inspired by Flannel Friday" rabbit-hole with Katie at Storytime Katie, with her happy, sunny (SUN!) Five Little Starfish

Another delightful version of the classic, "Monkey Face." This time from Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime shares her sassy version.
