This week’s edition of Flannel Friday is based on the book, I Dream of an Elephant By Ami Rubinger. It’s a simple story about colors and rhyming. I absolutely love the illustrations in it, they are so cute. The story is fine by itself but I thought it would be fun to have elephants to put on the flannel board while reading the story that way the kids can see all the colors at once. Enjoy!
I was inspired by Storytiming’s Blog post about Marty Kelley’s book Fall is Not Easy. I finally decided to make my own version since I will be doing my fall storytime next week. I did mine a little different. I wanted to use a separate tree for each time he “changed” so that when the story is over the kids can see all the different things he (yes, I decided the tree is a “he”) changed into. This one was really fun to make, so I hope you enjoy it!
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday but I don’t usually like to do a Halloween themed storytime, only because I never know what families celebrate it or not. Instead, I usually do a monster themed storytime which still goes with Halloween without saying it. Here is my Monster Storytime handout!
Here is the craft. It’s a really easy one because it’s mostly made from die cut pieces. Anything to make things easier!
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. So, in the spirit of it here is my flannel Friday, Five Little Pumpkins!
Five Little Pumpkins!
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate, the first one said, “Oh my it’s getting late”.
The second one said, “There are bats in the air!”
The third one said, “But we don’t care!”
The fourth one said, “Lets run, lets run!”
The fifth one said, “Isn’t this fun?”
Then…wooooo went the wind, and out went the lights, and five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
