Welcome to this week’s placeholder for the September 15th Flannel Friday Round Up! We’ve got quite the collection of fabulous creations this week, starting with…
Heather’s absolutely adorable crew of gnomes and equally amazing songs at Lady Librarian’s Literacy, Lifestyle and Lookbook Blog! Never once have I thought of doing a gnome theme, but now I’m thinking I must at least incorporate them into a garden storytime. Thanks Heather!
Just in time for my upcoming farm and math themes in October, Erin at Falling Flannelboards is sharing a Color Farm flannel. I love this idea for practicing print and shape awareness! Welcome back to Flannel Friday Erin! Thanks for sharing such a fun idea!
Speaking of upcoming themes, Wendy at Flannel Board Fun has got a great Halloween-themed Frankenstein face to share. What a flexible set- you could build Frankie’s face together with a small group, have fun with putting the parts in the wrong places if you have a large group, or let the kiddos explore at a flannelboard center. Thanks Wendy!
Keith at Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime is publicly proclaiming his love for Jane Cabrera this week (which I’m sure we all share!) and sharing I’m a Little Teapot! I never knew there was a second verse before to this well-loved nursery rhyme, did you? Head on over to Keith’s blog to find out what it is!
Bridget over at What is Bridget Reading has a gem of a flannel to share with us this week (lame pun intended)! I’m always looking for more pirate ideas. This guessing game looks like a super fun way to practice number recognition while helping duck find her lost treasure!
Speaking of games Laura at One for the Books is sharing 16 pairs of matching mittens! She used this flannel in a fun storytime all about getting dressed. I can’t wait to try out the Ravioli song!
We’ve also got some bookish flannels this week! Anna over at Future Librarian Superhero is sharing A Good Day for a Hat by T. Nat Fuller and showing off her freehand skills. (Seriously, Anna?! That’s amazing!) Speaking of amazing, have you checked out Anna’s project over at Everyday Diversity? What a great resource for finding inclusive storytime titles!
Lastly, I’ve got a bookish flannel to share as well. Do Lions Live on Lily Pads? by Melanie Walsh makes a great flannel for the toddler crowd! Kids just love to tell grown-ups no, don’t they?
Thanks everyone for contributing this week! Be on the lookout for more fun flannels next week with Lisa at Libraryland. Have a great weekend!

I’ve got a set of five gnomes and a troll that I did for a gnome themed storytime a while back! https://lady-librarian-life.blogspot.com/2017/09/flannelboard-gnomes.html

Thank you Heather! I’m so impressed by your whole gnome storytime theme, I never would have thought there could be so many books and songs you could use!
Thank you! It was a little challenging to come up with them all, but gnomes are basically my favorite thing so I had to try and make it work! I actually started planning this storytime back in January and then waited to do it when I found out that another gnome picture book (Go Big or Go Gnome) would be coming out in March. Then I held off even longer to give myself time to make a dress out of gnome fabric!
I am doing a fun guessing game version of Color Farm! Yay! https://fallingflannelboards.wordpress.com/2017/09/12/flannel-friday-color-farm/
Thank you for sharing Erin! I’ve seen Color Zoo but not Color Farm before. And welcome back! 🙂
Its 66 in my office so it seems like the perfect time for mitten matching http://lauraperenic.blogspot.com/2015/10/preschool-storytime-clothes-and-getting.html
It’s always a good time for mitten matching! 🙂 I’m thinking of doing this next week with my cats and dogs theme, thanks Laura!
I’ve got one this week over at Future Librarian Superhero!
I love this book but never thought about what a great flannel it makes! Thanks for the inspiration Anna!
Hi Jessica–thank you for hosting this week! I have another Halloween one: http://flannelboardfun.blogspot.com/2017/09/frankies-face.html
Wendy, I’m loving this whole building different Halloween things roll you’re on. 🙂 Super fun, thank you!
Hi! I have an extended “I’m a Little Teapot” this week. And a profession of my love of Jane Cabrera.
Thank you Keith! Jane Cabrera definitely makes my library heart beat faster. 🙂 I never knew there was a second verse to I’m a Little Teapot, I love it!
I have treasure chests! http://whatisbridgetreading.blogspot.com/2017/09/flannel-friday-treasure-chests.html
Thank you Bridget! I love it!
