Flannel Friday: Fall Is Not Easy

The first place I remember seeing “Fall Is Not Easy” by Martin Kelley as a flannelboard was on Cate’s blog: Storytiming. As you can see, many Flannel Friday crew members have done this flannel! And for good reason!

I used this flannelboard in “Leaves” storytime and will obviously use it again. The kids SHRIEKED when I changed the leaves. I didn’t do all of the pages. (Especially “Eat at Joe’s” since it’s not super prevalent in the Chicagoland area.)

Tracey is hosting this week’s Flannel Friday round-up. You can visit her blog to link up with us! For more information about Flannel Friday and joining us, please visit the Flannel Friday website.

    Yours turned out great! I have to confess that I tried to make this one and my pieces were DREADFUL. Will have to try again next fall!

      That happens sometimes! The first did I did Mrs. Wishy-Washy, it was awful, just awful! Definitely give it another go!

    What an amazing set! I’m creating one for my library Storytime. How did you make the continents?

      I looked for a map clip art piece online and used that. Any one will do as long as it fits the size of the three.
