Flannel Friday Round-Up 3/2

I’m going to call this Flannel Friday a wrap! We had a great week full of amazing submissions and I can’t wait to get started making htem. If I missed you or something is incorrect, please let me know here and I will correct it as soon as possible! Thanks!

And now…onto the flannels!

Alison at Miss Alison Is Blogging! gave us a non-flannel amazing Dr. Seuss idea with “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket!” Wockets are always very happy, no matter what pocket they are in! This is a great story prop!

Cate is still working on a post that she calls Happy B-Day Dr. Seuss. I can’t wait to see it!

Danielle at a Bad Case of Books created her own version of “Dog’s Colorful Day” in flannel; this is a flannelboard that every storytime librarian should have in her or his arsenal!

Jane at Piper Loves the Library made a wonderful adaptation of “In My Nest” — the board book/puppet comes to life in her very colorful and cheerful flannelboard!

Kari Ann from My Storytime Life made an absolutely gorgeous version of “A Winter Story.” Her flannel boards are just so beautiful, with some amazing detail work!

Katie at Recipe for Reading celebrated Leap Year with a fabulous Kangaroo story: “Boing Boing.” This would also work for a storytime all about pockets!

Linda from Notes at the Story Room brings us a flannelboard perfect for springtime, “A Fair Wind.” Living in the Windy City, I’m sure I will be using this one at weather storytime!

Lisa at Libraryland showed us her St. Patrick’s Day version of “There Was An Old Lady” — this one swallowed a clover! If you’re planning a holiday storytime, make sure to jump on this one!

Lucy from In the Children’s Room gives us a new storytime flannel classic: “Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?” It’s sung to the tune of the same name and will surely please fans of “Little Mouse.”

Mary at Miss Mary Liberry has an inspired-by Flannel Friday post: “Pretty Ladybug!” No matter what she may say, she is a puffy paint master in my book!

Meghan from Busy Crafting Mommy has an awesome follow-up (that I did not know about!!!) to “Dog’s Colorful Day” with “Dog’s Noisy Day.” You can bet I will tracking it the minute I get to work tomorrow!

Sarah at Read, Sarah, Read created a flannel version of one of my favorite storytime books — “The Mitten!” I love how she created a mitten that can BURST open with all of the animals!

Susan at Fussy Hen at the Library gave us her whole outline for a shoes themed storytime, complete with a flannelboard of “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe!” I love the detail work on the hen; some great puffy paint lining there!

Tracey from 1234 More Storytimes posted this great flannel: “One Day in the Jungle.” I know my storytime kids would definitely get behind the sneeze humor!

And I did my version of Six Little Valentines! (I know…it’s a little late for Valentine’s Day.)

    Hi Katie
    I’ve posted a flannel of One Two Buckle My Shoe at http://fussyhen.blogspot.com (I don’t know why that won’t copy as a link – sorry) I used your Old Shoes New Shoes rhyme in my storytime. It went over great. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    Hi Katie, there is no link to Alison’s (unless I am just missing it somehow?) Looking forward to seeing the rest of the roundup. Hope the weather isn’t too bad in Chicagoland!

      All fixed! It got lost in some improperly closed code.

      Weather’s great, IMO. I love the rain. 😀

    Love your envelopes, Katie! It is definitely not too late, just think of it as though you are very ahead! I can’t wait to make these and now I have plenty of time to do it before Valentine’s Day next year!
