Happy Flannel Friday!
It is time for a little
|No, not the game!|
Flannel Monster Mania
To start us off we have a very friendly monster who adores polka dots!
|His name is "Baby Moe". My Storytime Friends loved him!|
I don't see any polka dots.
Well, that's where our Storytime Friends come in on this one.
They each have a small felt circle of different colors.
They bring them up and add them
to our friendly little guy as he asks for each color.
Here is the rhyme to share with your Storytime Friends:
|Isn't he sweet with his red polka dots?|
|With all his colorful spots added, |
he is now ready for the Monster Mash Party!
The idea for a cute polka dotted monster and the words to the activity were originally found here on a past Flannel Friday post. And I have seen the words shared on another site (which I can't find at the moment) where they were presented as a piggyback version of "I'm a Little Teapot".
I decided to make my own monster and to just tweaked the song a little ~
as I am known to do!
I just changed a couple of things ~ including the last verse ~ and I recited it as a rhyme rather than singing it.
We also had some familiar monster come to visit us at our Storytime.
|Elmo, Telly Monster, and Cookie Monster!|
First we did a count-up rhyme and added each monster friend to the board one by one. Then we did a monster-version of "Five Little Monkeys" with just our three friendly monsters (count-down song). This fun song lead into our second book of the evening which is fast becoming one of my favorite monster books. It is:
Little Green Monster
by Ed Emberley
|A felt version of this awesome book is coming soon!|
We ended our monster-ific evening with a grrrrr-licious snack and a chance to make our own friendly monsters to take home and play with:
|Monster puppet craft and songs to be posted soon!|
Thanks for stopping by again this week. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Flannel Friday fun by visiting our host this week, Lisa, at Libraryland.
