Beach Time!

I'm so tired of winter!! This will be my virtual beach vacation, LOL! Here's a link for some great beach books @ No Time for Flashcards.  There are some good posts on the Flannel Friday Pinterest boards too! I have a counting-to-10 seashell rhyme to add to your beach theme. I used an Ellison diecut for the shells and then added the glitter glue/fabric paint outlines. (By the way, the word green is supposed to rhyme with 10.) 

Picking up Seashells
by Kathryn Roach
I went to the beach with my bucket in my hand.
As I walked along I looked down at the sand.
I saw some pretty seashells; yellow, orange and green,
I counted as I picked them up

I also have a link for a riddle game that I made up. It's called What I Saw at the Beach Riddle Game.  I used Google images that I cut out and mounted on blue construction paper and then laminated. I sized the images to be about 4 or 5 inches and put a dot of velcro on the back of the laminated images so they'd go on the flannelboard. This leads to a LOT of discussion! Playing and Talking are 2 of our ECRR components. Well, at least this beach trip didn't involve sandy laundry or pesky sharks! The beach is a lot of Fun with Friends at StorytimeThe rest of the Flannel Friday roundup is @ Storytime KatieHave questions about Flannel Friday?
