Surprise! It's a Flannel Friday!

Let's see what surprises this Friday had in store for us!


Jessica from Storytime in the Stacks shared her version of the Mitten Matching Game. I love the song that goes along with this!

Building Mr. Snowman is also from Jessica. This is an adorable way to get audience participation and work on sequencing.

It's the Year of the Rooster, and April from Storytime Ukulele has a catchy farm song featuring our fine feathered friend: I Love My Rooster. She added chords and an adaptation for dinosaurs, too.

Though Mr. Keith points out that you should never shake a baby, you may want to wibble and wobble and jiggle and joggle one through Jelly in the Bowl.

Flannel Friday 12/02/16: It's Not That Cold Outside

IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING!

Okay, maybe not right this very minute, but now that I'm in Colorado, I expect it to happen all the time. This is ski country, right?!

For this week's extra special Winter Extravaganza Flannel Friday, I made a flannel that can accompany a song I'll be using in a program in February.


It's Not That Cold Outside
(to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)
I don't want to wear my coat, wear my coat, wear my coat
I don't want to wear my coat
It's not that cold outside.

Repeat with scarf, boots, mittens, and hat
Aaaa CHOOOOOoooo!

It can also be used for:

 Boots, Jacket, Scarf, and Hat
Sung to: “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.
In wintertime we dress like that.
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun is hosting the roundup today. Don't forget to check her blog later to see all of the submissions from this week.

Flannel Friday Roundup: November 4, 2016

It's roundup day! Let's take a look at the fabulous Friday felt fabrications for Friday.

WHAT'S THAT?! YOU'LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP! I'm having difficulty hearing you over these NOISY ROBOTS made by Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Whew, it's a little quieter now. We can hear these Five Christmas Cookies made by Kate at Felt Board Magic chanting their rhyme. Don't eat too many, or you'll get a tummy ache. She's even included a pattern so you can bake more this holiday season.

After all those cookies, I need to brush my teeth. Never fear, because these Five Little Teeth also made by Kate at Felt Board Magic are here!

If you're worried about the Christmas rush, we have an adorable fall felt board for you. Mr. Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime has made these cute leaves for Autumn Leaves Are Falling Down. And, as if you need more convincing, there's coffee involved.

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun shows us just what might be hiding in those leaves: Little Snail. This Inspired By Flannel Friday idea actually uses real leaves!

Our last post is from the amazing Miss Mary Liberry (I say this not just because we work together, although it might be super awkward if I didn't). She's made a felt version of Brian Won's Hooray For Hat with super cute animals.

Flannel Friday Roundup 09/16/2016

Flannel Friday has come around once again! Was it just me, or was this week crazy? Let's blame it on the harvest moon, shall we?

Emily from Literary Hoots is getting royally silly with her "There's a Castle in the Middle of the Moat". Try this the next time you do a fairy tales or kingdoms storytime.

Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime shared his version of Dog's Colorful Day. The pieces are so detailed! They bring a whole new life to this favorite story and Keith even added motions for more fun.

Shawn from Read, Rhyme & Sing celebrates International Dot Day with a new twist on the old classic Little Mouse: Robot, Robot!  

Speaking of Dot Day, Lisa M. from Libraryland turned Eric Litwin's new book, The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants into a fun flannel board. I love that she didn't use felt, but foam and puffy paint, instead. Flannels can be made out of so many materials!

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun has a two-fer for us today! Her Pot of Songs is a fun way to add a little bit of flexibility to storytimes, especially when you have a wiggly crowd! She's also getting in the holiday spirit with these fun Christmas finger puppets.

Jane from Piper Loves the Library shares what is probably the cutest program I have seen in a long time (at least since the stuffed animal sleepover craze). It's called Talk to the Animals and I guarantee it will make you squee with delight.

Fall is almost upon us, and Kate from Felt Board Magic has two apple-tastic posts to share this week. A-P-P-L-E is a popular piggyback of B-I-N-G-O, but Kate has added her own flavor to it with an extra "crunchiness." Ten Red Apples is a cute song that also introduces addition and subtraction. Yummy!

And lastly we have Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime with a fun balloon song, Counting Balloons, that will be perfect to use on the windy fall days that are coming soon.
