Flannel Friday - Ahhh Chooo!

This is my first week participating in Flannel Friday. I've only been flanneling (is that a word?) or sharing flannel board stories/activities during story time for a few months. The flannel sets have been well received so far and I'm hoping to continue sharing at least one during each story time.

The flannel board set I'm sharing today came to being because I was looking for something silly for next week's story times. It is the last week before Summer Reading starts for us and I wanted something low key and fun. I spotted  5 Pretty Flowers in Finger Tales by Joan Hilyer Phelps and thought it was a perfect fit.

In the meadow grew.
"Hmm," I said.
"I bet they smell pretty too!"
I bent down to sniff,
But they tickled my nose!
Ah-choo! Oh no! (with playful exaggeration)
Away 1 flower blows

Continue with 4, 3, 2, 1...

I'm hoping the children think this is as fun as I do! I'm also planning on bringing a box of tissues, just in case our pretend sneezing turns into the real thing!

Finger Tales also includes a pattern for a sneezing elephant that I might include the next time I share 5 Pretty Flowers. It is awfully cute, but I ran out of gray felt.

This week's Flannel Friday Roundup is being hosted by Sarah at Read It Again!


  1. Welcome to Flannel Friday! This is a cute rhyme. I have found that loud sneezes (and throwing flannel pieces) are always a hit in story time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very sweet. I love that you are bringing tissues. That is so cute!
