Flannel Friday-Brown Bat, Brown Bat

This week is Flannel Friday's Halloween Extravaganza and I knew that I wanted to participate. Unfortunately, all of my felt and flannelboards are still in boxes from the big move. As I am doing baby story times for the first time ever, I have been trying to beef up my younger flannelboards. Who better to be inspired by than Mel's Desk? Brown bat, brown bat, what do you see? I see a red leaf looking at me. Red leaf, red leaf, what do you see? I see an orange pumpkin looking at me. Orange pumpkin, orange pumpkin, what do you see? I see a black cat looking at me. Black cat, black cat, what do you see? I see a yellow moon looking at me. Yellow moon, yellow moon, what do you see? I see a gray owl looking at me. Gray owl, gray owl, what do you see? I see a white ghost looking at me. I like this rhyme for young children because it is based on Brown Bear, Brown Bear which many of them can recite by heart. It also uses simple shapes (die cuts) and bright colors. Kay at Storytime ABC's is hosting this week's Flannel Friday round-up. If you are looking for new ideas, check it out!

Flannel Friday: Monster Mania Fun!

Happy Flannel Friday! It is time for a little No, not the game! It's Flannel Monster Mania Time! To start us off we have a very friendly monster who adores polka dots! His name is "Baby Moe". My Storytime Friends loved him! But wait! I don't see any polka dots. Do you? Well, that's where our Storytime Friends come in on this one. They each have a small felt circle of different colors. They bring them up and add them to our friendly little guy as he asks for each color. Here is the rhyme to share with your Storytime Friends: I'm a Little Monster Isn't he sweet with his red polka dots? I'm a little monster friendly and bright. I won't give anyone a fright. I love polka dots but I have none. So step right up and give me red ones. I'm a little monster friendly and bright. I won't give anyone a fright. I love polka dots but I only have some. So step right up and give me orange ones. Continue until each color has been added, then sing the last verse: With all his colorful spots added, he is now ready for the Monster Mash Party! I'm a little monster friendly and bright. I won't give anyone a fright. I love polka dots and I have lots. Thank you for my colorful spots. The idea for a cute polka dotted monster and the words to the activity were originally found here on a past Flannel Friday post. And I have seen the words shared on another site (which I can't find at the moment) where they were presented as a piggyback version of "I'm a Little Teapot". I decided to make my own monster and to just tweaked the song a little ~ as I am known to do! I just changed a couple of things ~ including the last verse ~ and I recited it as a rhyme rather than singing it. We also had some familiar monster come to visit us at our Storytime. Elmo, Telly Monster, and Cookie Monster! First we did a count-up rhyme and added each monster friend to the board one by one. Then we did a monster-version of "Five Little Monkeys" with just our three friendly monsters (count-down song). This fun song lead into our second book of the evening which is fast becoming one of my favorite monster books. It is: Nighty Night, Little Green Monster by Ed Emberley A felt version of this awesome book is coming soon! We ended our monster-ific evening with a grrrrr-licious snack and a chance to make our own friendly monsters to take home and play with: Monster puppet craft and songs to be posted soon! Thanks for stopping by again this week. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Flannel Friday fun by visiting our host this week, Lisa, at Libraryland. Have a lovely weekend, everyone! And, as always, HAPPY READING TOGETHER!
