Flannel Friday: Me and My Body

I was in a horrible pinch this past week for storytime. I had my theme — “Me” — and no flannelboard for it! I reached out to Twitter, got a TON of great suggestions (thank you) and went home, armed with a couple of flannels to make before bed. And lo and behold, I fell asleep before the end of “America’s Next Top Model.”

Which led me to create this absolute last minute flannelboard…twenty minutes before storytime:

The laminated tags have the body parts in English, Spanish, and Polish — to the best of my ability and with help from Google Translate.

Sometimes things work out for the best though! This was a HUGE success. I moved the signs around and the kids “corrected” me by pointing to their own bodies. Both groups (Thursday and Friday mornings) were so happy with this flannel, even if I think it looks rushed and messy.
