Flannel Friday Round-Up for February 22, 2013

Are you ready for this week's Flannel Friday Round-Up?

I know I am!

I am excited to be hosting the Flannel Friday Round-Up this week. I missed last week's Round-Up so I am hoping to have something to share this week. :o) 

Let's get this Round-Up started!

This week I am collecting everyone's contributions into a Blog Hop. (You can check out a couple of past ones here and here.) 

I have been hosting Blog Hops on my blog for quite awhile because I have found them to be a fun, simple way to organize storytime ideas in an easy to access format.

I also find Blog Hops to be much quicker to use. And since participants link a photo from their own site, you can easily see if an idea is what you are looking for. 

It is very Pinterest-y

Two ways to participate:

*** If you prefer the usual way of participating, just leave your link in the comment section below. I will add you to the Blog Hop as soon as possible.

***If you prefer to link yourself, then click on the "click here to enter" link below. It will open a window where you will be asked to follow these steps:

1. Add your blog post's url. Please remember to link to your specific post ~ don't post the url to your blog's main page. 

2. Give your post a title. You may use only 30 characters so choose wisely. 

3. You can skip this step. It asks for your name and email but it is not necessary. If you do choose to enter your name and/or email, it will not show in the link-up.

4. This is the fun part! Add a photo from your blog post. First, decide if you want to crop your own picture or use autocrop. Next, click on "From the Web" button. This will open up a window that will display pictures from your blog. Click on the one you want to use.

Viola! You are done! 

And it is time to click through all the other posts. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a comment below, post a comment on 
the Flannel Friday Facebook page, email me at or 
catch me on Twitter ~ I am @StorytimeFun.

Remember: if you want me to do the linking up for you, just leave your post's link in the comments below ~ exactly as you would in past Round-Ups. I will add you to the list. 

For anyone who is new to Flannel Friday and curious about this awesome group of guys and gals, you can check out the Flannel Friday website here

Have fun!

      I have several blog hops on different themes if you want to link up any of your past posts that fit the themes. You can find them by clicking on the "My ABC'S Blog Hops" button at the top of the page.

  4. K,
    I added Chicken Little- knocked senseless!! I am pretty sure you are a fan of this story - don't you act it out with your creative colleagues?
    Thanks for hosting. I adore your enthusiasm. ~ jane

    1. Yes! Jane, I ADORE that book and actually had Rebecca Emberley ask for pictures from our live action program that we did last summer for our Summer Reading Program.

      The kids LOVED the story! We had large characters and a HUGE Fox head that we revealed right before we walked into his mouth. The illustrations are so awesome that they just beg to be reproduced exactly, :o)

      There was an audible gasp from the audience when we revealed the Fox with his HUGE mouth wide open. LOL! Soooooo FUN!

      I can't wait to read your post. Thanks for sharing this week!

      Have a lovely weekend!
