Well, I did my best to find a flannelboard I’ve done that fits in with the theme “One World, Many Stories” as several other Flannel Friday participants are doing. And the only one I could think of was this adaptation of “The House That Jack Built” which is a British nursery rhyme with many possible origin stories, according to Wikipedia.
I used this in “Red” storytime almost a month ago now!
I just freehanded this one since it’s such familiar shapes. And here’s the text:
This is the crust that Sally made.
This is the sauce, so red and so sweet,
These are the olives, so black and salty,
These are the peppers, so green and crunchy,
This is the pineapple, fresh from Hawaii,
This is the salami, that makes it Italian,
This is the cheese, so gooey and chewy,
This is the tummy, so hungry and lively,
That devoured the pizza made with the cheese, so gooey and chewy,
That went on top of the salami, that makes it Italian,
That went with the pineapple, fresh from Hawaii,
That went with the peppers, so green and crunchy,
That went with the olives, so black and salty,
That went on the sauce, so spicy and sweet,
That went on the crust that Sally made.
And that was the pizza that Sally made!

I do this as the original poem does, where you add one element and repeat all the previous ones, building until you get to the last verse. The kids really liked the repetition in this one and began chanting along with me.
