Flannel Friday: Superheroes!

Up, up, and away! Superheroes!

I bought this clipart on Etsy from revidevi, which is one of my favorite clip art stores. I made sure to get clipart that had both female and male superheroes, and I really liked how preschool-like the kids were.

I used this in Superheroes storytime with the song “Ten Little Heroes” modified from a childhood song that I’m sure you all know and recognize:

One little, two little, three little heroes
Four little, five little, six little heroes
Seven little, eight little, nine little heroes
Ten heroes ready to fly!
(count down)

or you could use it with this fingerplay that I got from Jbrary:

Five superheroes ready to fly,
Here comes a villain. Stop that guy!
This superhero can save the day.
Off he/she flies – up, up, and away!

Either rhyme/song you chose, it will be sure to be an excellent time!

    Is there a reason there are no superheros of color in this clipart set?

      You would have to ask the artist about that.

      As for my part, I purchased this clip art back in 2013 and there wasn’t a huge variety at that time on Etsy. That has changed, as this recent search shows: https://www.etsy.com/search?q=superhero%20clip%20art . I would also suggest looking at Hafuboti’s recent post. In response to the CSLP art this summer, she and her fiance created diverse clip art free for use: http://hafuboti.com/2015/02/03/my-heroes/ .

      When I hand-make flannels, I do my best to include diversity. I can see that I need to more carefully evaluate my clip art in the future.

      Thank you for your comment.

    Ellison has a great collections of dies for superheroes that we now have in our collection that would work nicely for these rhymes.
