Tis the season.... for Halloween, Pumpkins, and pretty Autumnal leaves:
Old McRainbow's Pumpkin Farm at Fun with Friends at Storytime is a fun twist on a few classic ideas.
Anne brings you an idea for a Jack 'o Lantern play set for children to play with during their library visits.
Bonus! Anne also has Halloween Hilda, a fun prop story similar to The Very Hungry Caterpillar or There Was and Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat.
Ms. Jenna flannelized the picture book The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams. Ms. Jenna's got some mad puffy paint skills! :)
Bonus! Ms. Jenna also brings a flannel version of an Iranian folktale, The Singing Pumpkin. Cutest ogre ever award?
Linda created a fun Haunted Houses prop using ideas from several other Flannel Friday posts that she found on the Flannel Friday pinterest boards. (Shameless plug!) :D
Christine has several ideas for using fall colored leaves on the felt board. She has some good tips for reinforcing the concept of size with the leaves, for those of you looking to incorporate math literacy into your storytimes.
Another inspired by Flannel Friday post, here's Tara's version of Polka Dotty Monster.
Head over to Story Time with the Library Lady for some fun flannel ideas for a pumpkin play set and a Haunted House peek-a-boo board.
With our animal friends:
Tweak, Tweak by Eve Bunting gets a cute flannelized version courtesy of Thrive After Three.
Katie F. shares a cute idea for talking about animal homes, Do You Know Where I Live? Katie has shared about her recent refocus, but I'm thankful she's still going to be posting new ideas, because they are great!
An open ended set of "If You Give a ________ a ________" is a sure discussion starter! Bridget has the details.
Do you need to celebrate a mouse birthday soon? Miss Kristie has a cute puppet/flannel combo to share.
Nikarella's back after a 6 month absence (we miss you!) with a flannelized version of Sylvie by Jennifer Sattler
Posts that defy categorization:
Miss Meg has Lots of (cute) Cars!
Andrea has an update on her Flannels for Botswana project. I was happy to spend some evenings thrifting for books and creating flannels to send with the kits. And I was able to upcycle some boxes I'd been saving. So really, it was a win all around. :D
