Flannel Friday: The Shape Story

Today’s flannelboard comes from Miss Kristie at The Library Village — The Shape Story!

No template for this one still I free-handed it. This worked really well in my toddler storytime! We practiced identifying shapes as I told the story and my older toddlers were able to say “house” or “tree” at the end of the flannelboard. I also used this in a preschool outreach/partnership storytime with the DuPage Children’s Museum and they LOVED it. Afterwards, I let the preschoolers build with the shapes from this story and from this flannelboard. We had a great time!

Laura is hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!

      The story is available via the link in the first paragraph. Miss Kristie links to a YouTube video that you can watch to hear the story.

        Hey Katie, Thank you, I checked her link, she too just mentions it and has a youtube link. I listened to the youtube video and wrote the story out that way.

        For the tree, did you just add: “And then one day PLOP out of the sky fell a brown rectangle and a green triangle and they landed next to the blue square.” and at the end of the story say “and they were all happy”?

        I love your site! It has helped me so much.
