Flannel Friday: Pirates!

I bring you, not one, but TWO amazing pirate-themed flannelboards today!

The first was is an “Inspired By Flannel Friday” post, with credit to Library Quine at Loons and Quines for the amazing idea and link to the template on Making Learning Fun.

This flannelboard is done to the tune of “Mary Wore a Red Dress.” I didn’t make enough eye patches for the kids to each have one, but I had them shout out their favorite colors and that’s how I switched it up.

The second flannelboard comes from Mega Storytime.

I used regular Microsoft clip-art for this one, and just laminated it. The kids had a lot of fun with the rhyme:

5 Pirates on a Treasure Chest
Five pirates on a treasure chest, one jumped off and four are left.
Four pirates on a treasure chest, one slid off and three are left.
Three pirates on a treasure chest, one tumbled down and two are left.
Two pirates on a treasure chest, one blew away and one is left.
One pirate on a treasure chest, hhe climbed down and now there are none.
No pirates on a treasure chest! Yo ho ho and now it’s all MINE!

I used both of these in pirate storytime, which I will put the plan for up in a few weeks!

    AWESOME! Actually they are beyond awesome! <3

    Our pirate programs are always our most requested because pirates are HUGE in FL so I am always looking for new ideas. I already had LQ's flannel bookmarked for making this summer and now I will add your 5 pirates one, too. It is fun ~ especially the "Yo ho ho and now it is mine" line. Classic pirate stuff! ;o) LOL

    Great job on your flannels. Thanks for sharing!
