[Edited to add: I cannot upload these puzzles, as I do not have the right to distribute Microsoft Office clipart. They are fairly easy to make; give it a try! My apologies for not being able to help more!]
A few weeks back, I started doing outreach storytime to some local daycares. These are the daycares that walk over to the library during the nice weather seasons (April though October), and I really wanted to continue doing storytimes for them even during our off-weather-season.
Since I’m doing the storytimes in different rooms (three different rooms), have only crayons or glue as supplies available, am doing different age groups instead of an all-ages storytime, and I don’t have my flannelboard easel or shelf or seats or a thousand other things — I decided to do an alphabet series only for my outreach kids. (That way I can be more flexible and change things up easier than sticking to a more rigid theme!)
Like I did with my colors series, I wanted to repeat a flannelboard activity from week to week. I settled on making letter puzzles with the kids.
These are really easy flannelboards to put together, as they are just laminated and sticky-back felt is put on the back. Also, I love that they reinforce the different things we might have talked about in storytime as well as the shape of the letter.
I probably won’t be posting any more of these (at least for Flannel Friday!), but I will perhaps post a compilation when I have all the letters done.
