Flannel Friday - All Around the Swamp

Hello everyone! As some of you know, I started working in a new library near Denver, CO. It's been a big change, but I am LOVING it so far. Especially since it brings me closer to our Flannel Friday founder, Melissa from Mel's Desk, and Mary from Miss Mary Liberry!

I can't quite call this my own submission. Like all great artists, I steal borrow from those around me. In this case, everything is entirely Melissa's, I just repurposed it. I needed ideas for a dinosaur storytime, and low and behold, she had already done most of the legwork! There was even a flannel already created that I stole borrowed for this. That's right, it's literally her actual flannel that she made for her storytimes. Sharing an office wall with her is awesome.

All Around the Swamp
Sung to: "The Wheels on the Bus"
Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap
Flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap,
Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap
All around the swamp.
Triceratop’s horns went poke, poke, poke…
Apatosaurus’ mouth went munch, munch, munch…

My additions:
Tyrannosaurus goes roar, roar, roar
Stegosaurus goes stomp, stomp, stomp

--Melissa from Mel's Desk

Here's the link to the dinosaur template and you can find the link to Melissa's dinosaur storytime in the credit above.

Emily from Literary Hoots is hosting the roundup today. Don't forget to check her blog later to see all of the submissions from this week.
