Flannel Friday Round-Up 10/30

Apologies that this round-up took so long! I was in a *very* minor car accident, but spent a great deal of my weekend/week with insurance, the body shop, and switching from my loaner car back to my (repaired) car.

On to the round-up!!

Storytime Ukulele has given us a lovely and simple flannelboard of cars with a template included! Additionally, there are also ukulele chords for Woody Guthrie’s Take Me For a Ride! I love the different patterned cars here.

Jaime at Miss Jaime’s Library Journeys has a fabulous take on an ice cream cone rhyme that she found at Kathryn’s blog. Jaime used this at a Candy and Desserts storytime instead of a Halloween one and I think that’s a splendid idea.

Katie at ¡Es divertido hablar dos idiomas! is hosting a guest post from Kate Cruz, a library assistant at Washoe County Library System. Kate has a great bilingual activity where her character Duke dresses up as a cowboy as Kate teaches Spanish vocabulary. I think that Kate did an amazing job explaining how to do this flannelboard and if you didn’t scroll down to see Duke dressed up as a barber, you’re missing out on life.

And speaking of Kathryn…Kathryn left us a link to my dear friend Sarah’s FIRST Flannel Friday!! (I am so proud of you, Sarah!) Sarah at GreenBeanTeenQueen made a flannelboard adaptation of Buddy and the Bunnies by Bob Shea and it’s wonderful. Sarah is highlighting one of her state’s picture book award nominees which I’m also a big fan of!

Nikki at Hey There Library solved an outreach problem nightmare: keeping your felts with you. Who hasn’t lost a piece on their way to/from the car while doing outreach? (Just today I lost a piece coming back from outreach storytime!) Nikki has made a most ingenious pocket for the back of the flannelboard. I will be making that immediately.

And I had Five Noisy Robots this week.

Thanks friends for contributing! Thanks friend for your patience!

      Hey Katie, I got it wrong, Sarah left her link for Buddy and bunnies on the roundup/placeholder for last week. So I’m posting it here for her.
      I thought it was Barbara…does that make sense?
