Are you ready for this week's Flannel Friday Round-Up?
Drum roll, please!
To start us off this week, Kathryn is getting the jump on Christmas with her sweet, little Gingerbread Men on her blog, Fun with Friends at Storytime. She has several fun, interactive songs and fingerplays to go along with her yummy felt cookies. I love her special glittery sugar cookies at the end of her post. I can't wait to use Kathryn's awesome ideas!
It is really funny how often Flannel Friday-ers seem to think alike from week to week ~ this week, I also have some yummy Gingerbread Friends to share at my blog, Storytime ABC'S. Mine were created to be used for songs and rhymes during storytime AND for a little learning fun at our new Stay and Play time following our Toddlertime each Tuesday. I also made Gingerbread Playdough for our storytime friends to play with ~ recipe included!
|These yummy friends can be used for|
Color Recognition/Matching and Counting activities.
Though it hasn't quite snowed yet where Shaia at Thrive After Three lives, she is still wearing all of the cute, colorful clothes she made for a rebus-reading of The Jacket I Wear in the Snow. I know her storytime friends must have loved being able too help "read" the story!
|A rebus flannel set ~ what a clever idea!|
Anne at So Tomorrow was inspired to create a flannel set based on one of her favorite books published in 2013, Windblown by Edouard Manceau. She was inspired by a past Flannel Friday post which she shares a link to in her post. I always enjoy seeing different versions of the same book, song, or rhyme.
Here is another example of Flannel Friday-ers thinking alike ~ Sharon is also sharing one of her favorite books from 2013! She shared her favorite in an "unconventional Flannel Friday post" on her blog, Rain Makes Applesauce. I love unconventional posts, don't you?!??! The book that Sharon has fallen in love with is Moo by David LaRochelle. Have you seen it yet? I actually have it in my TBR pile at work and now I can't wait to read it on Monday ~ thanks to Sharon!!!
|Moo - zoooom!|
Jane at Piper Loves the Library has "a biggie with a little bit flannel". You definitely do NOT want to miss it! It is a super fancy party to celebrate National Picture Book Month! I'm so sad that I wasn't able to dress-up and attend but I'm sooo sooo happy that Jane is sharing her "red carpet" fun with us through words and pictures.
|You are a Rockstar Librarian, Jane!|
Sue at Let the Wild Rumpus Start is sharing her "quick and easy" felts for the book, There Was a Bold Lady Who Wanted a Star! She says "quick and easy", I say "WOW!" She hand drew her pieces with puffy paint! Plus she made them reversible!!! I am impressed!
|All the items that the Bold Lady collected along the way.|
Katie at ¡Es divertido hablar dos idiomas! has gone above and beyond with her Cats/Gatos-themed bilingual storytime plan. She shares bilingual books, songs, and an adorable flannel based on the book, Cookie's Week/La Semana de Cookie. All the work is done for us! She has provided a ready-made storytime that anyone could present in both English and Spanish.
|Uh-oh! Cookie better be careful!|
And, in honor of the holiday, I thought it would be nice to add a special feature to this particular Round-Up ~
~ Posts from the Past ~
Kathryn brings us a "blast from the past" with a flannel that she feels like could be tweaked into a Christmas gift rhyme. It is A Gift for Mommy! Too cute!
Anne is sharing a past post in honor of all the snow they've been getting in Michigan already.
And as one last example of Flannel Friday-ers thinking alike, I have chosen my "Not Quite a Flannel Friday ~ Melting Snowman" post from this past January to share. We aren't having any snow here in Florida (surprise, surprise!) but I have been receiving lots of snow pictures from my son and his fiance in Michigan. ;o)
Thanks for stopping by this week!
Hope you enjoyed the
Flannel Friday Round-Up
as much as I enjoyed hosting it!
Next week's Holiday Round-Up will be hosted by Mollie at What Happens in Storytime.
