A Flannel Friday post inspired by possibly the best hugger in the world, Brooke at Reading With Red!
(No, seriously, I think Brooke has the hugger title locked in.)
The shape game!
I started using this flannel immediately after starting my position and taking on baby time. I scoured websites looking for ideas and I have to report: there’s something magical about the shape game. I would hide another flannel piece behind one of the shapes and talk to the babies and caregivers.
One by one, I would “eliminate” one shape as I talked about it. All of these guesses would end with some variation of “No, it’s not under there. Let’s try another shape!”
“Can we find a shape that makes a noise? What about the heart? What kind of sound does it make?”
“Which shape has three points?”
“Miss Katie is wearing a dress that matches a shape. What color is it?”
I always keep the object hidden until the very last shape. Then our theme for the day is revealed!
The shapes are are large as I could get them on a 9×12 piece of felt. The star is the tiniest, so I hide things under it very rarely.
