Flannel Friday: Little Cat

This week I’m sharing the flannelboard I used for “Hat” storytime this week!

This is essentially “Little Mouse” just rhyming cat and hat instead. First, the kids and I talked about different kinds of hats and they helped naming them. Then, I told them I had hidden a cat underneath one hat and we had to guess which one. I chanted, “Little cat, little cat, are you under the _________ hat?”

As always, this kind of a flannelboard worked wonders and we played several times before the kids began to guess quicker where I had hidden the cat.

For the clip art, I used Microsoft Office pictures so I unfortunately do not have any files to link up. The cat is from my Old MacDonald set that I borrowed for this flannelboard.

Melissa is hosting this week’s Flannel Friday — you can find the round-up at her blog! Visit the new Flannel Friday website to learn more about Flannel Friday!

    This is such a cute idea. Great for rhyming. I haven’t tried the Little Mouse game yet but now I am thinking that I’ll have to make Little Mouse and Little Cat sets. Lol!

    Good idea to re-purpose your cat from your Old McDonald set. :o)
