Flannel Friday: Ten Flashing Fireflies

Today’s “Inspired by Flannel Friday” post was inspired by two of the Flannel Friday crew: Amy at Catch the Possibilities and Alison of Miss Alison Is Blogging!

I did use the book by Philemon Sturges as rhyme, so I will not be printing it here. I did modify it a bit to be a bit more repetitive since my kids love repeating the rhyme lines with me.

I used this flannel at my “Animals at Night” storytime, which will be posted this Monday!

    So glittery and sparkly! I’ll bet the little ones loved them. ❤

    I would like to know how you modified the book for more repetition. If you prefer not to share on your blog, would you mind emailing me at storytimeabcs@gmail.com

    I would really appreciate it!
    Have a nice weekend!

    I see it’s been a while since someone asked – but could you please also send me your modifications to the Sturges book – if not too much trouble? Thank you

      Hi Connie,

      The flannelboard is based off the book by Philemon Sturges. I don’t have a copy of the text because I use the book!
