Flannel Friday ~ In My Nest

Loving Flannel Friday! In My Nest by Sara Gillingham Making this flannel board was great fun! It is a warm, gentle, loving story of a baby bird and her family! I tell the story from the board book In My Nest by Sara Gillingham and slowly layer the pieces on. I give the children the smaller green leaves - hence, do not ever expect it to look like this in story time!!! Many thanks again to my colleague Kari Ann. You can find her amazing work at mystorytimelife.blogspot.com She introduced me to…

Flannel Friday: Where Can They Be?

HAPPY FLANNEL FRIDAY! Are you ready to wiggle and squirm this week? Last Friday, we bounced like bunnies. This week, we are going to wiggle and squirm like worms! I am not sure if I have ever done a storytime featuring worms ~ ewwww! smooshy, gooshy, slimey, slippery worms! ~ before. But it was FUN! Planning last night's Family Storytime and Game Night was actually more fun than I imagined. And did you know worms have their own personalilites? Well... at least mine do! *wink* As some of my…

Fun with Friends at Storytime: Chickens -- yellow cotton balls or pom-poms w/beaks & eyes would be a great craft for Chicks Run Wild!

Which Came First? The Chicken or the Egg?

Having just done an Easter Egg program, I've got eggs on the brain! Maybe my brains are 'scrambled?' cue the laugh track... Anyway, I thought I'd share these two cute little chicken flannels that I've had a loonnggg time! I can't remember where I got the rhymes or the idea for the nest and mother hen's movable wing. I've used Nancy Tafuri's book, Five Little Chicks and Hurry! Hurry! by Eve Bunting when I do a chicken and/or egg theme. I also like A Big Fat Hen by Keith Baker. Another good…

Storytime with Miss Tara and Friends: Pre-K Kites

Pre-K 4-4-13 Spring!!

Oh the vivid memories of melting snow, April showers, flowers growing, the warmth.... Not so much the same in AZ, but it's fun to talk about seasons in other parts of the country too! Kids: 36 Siblings: 6 Adults: 27 Memory Box: Rabbit from Hurray for Spring! Books: I often find myself torn between 3 books, but never get to the third because of time. My 3 choices for today were: Hurray for Spring! by Patricia Hubbell. I love the large, bold illustrations and delightful text in this book about…

Flannel Friday-Show and Tell

This has been one of those weeks where I haven't had time to sit down and come up with something original. On the other hand, I have been doing a lot of flanneling, based on other people's past posts. This week, I am going to do a show and tell. Plus, I think that it highlights why Flannel Friday is awesome when planning programs. I don't know how you do your planning, but our location runs 9 story times a week in 6-week sessions. Out of those 9 story times, we need 4 different plans…

Flannel Friday: A Home for Birdie

This week's flannel board idea came from Storytiming! I was doing a bird theme, and when I went a-googling, I stumbled across her very adorable "A House for Birdie" flannel board, based off the book, A House for Birdie by Stuart J. Murphy. I loved the idea and knew immediately I wanted to recreate my own version. It's a simple enough story. Our friend Birdie (pictured below) is looking for a new house. What he wants though, is a not-too-big, not-too-small, juuuuust-right house, all his own…

Finger Puppets Or How I Do "Five Little Monkeys"

Lately I've been trying to come up with program ideas that tie in with the summer reading theme of Dream Big - Read! I plan to do an evening pajama story time. If I do stories about bedtime then I'll be doing "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed." This will give me a chance to use my new "old favorite," the Monkey Mitt. When I use the mitt the little monkeys get do a lot of bouncing up and down. Early in my career as a children's librarian I came across the Monkey Mitt and its assorted…

Flannel Friday Guest Post: PIE!

Trails & Tales is proud to host Kathryn Roach, Wendell Library, Wendell NC; part of the Wake County Library system of Wake County NC with her Thanksgiving Pie Flannel Friday. For Thanksgiving I like to present a program about food, mainly pie! I like to read, The Apple Pie that Papa Baked by Lauren Thompson, and All For Pie, Pie For All by David Martin. I use several flannel board rhymes too. I’m not sure where I found this rhyme originally. It was a very long time ago. I take a piece off…
