Flannel Friday: X-Rays!

After a personal vacation, and then work CRAZINESS with other staff members taking their time off as well, things have been pretty quiet on the blog. (Sorry about that!) But I’m back, starting today, and for a long time to come!

Today, I give you a super simple flannelboard for use during your doctor storytimes or Letter X storytimes: X-Rays!

This was a simple matching game. I laid out the x-rays and the kids told me what words matched the x-rays. They also pointed to their bodies as we matched up words with x-rays. I enjoyed this flannel because it was simple and effective and it also was incredibly interesting to talk to the kids about pictures of their bones.

    Cool idea! One I printed a chest x-ray onto a transparency and projected onto a big screen. Then I laid objects on top of the x-ray, like paper clips, keys, a toy car, etc, and the kids had to guess what the patient ate. This was for older kids, but you could use simpler shapes with the younger ones.
