Tick Tock, Here's a Clock!

It's time for a story about time. This storytime is a chance to teach children the word 'analog'! I made a large clock face with numbers hotglued to diecut circles that are removable. The clock hands can also be moved as we talk about the time that we do different activities in our day.  Here's my rhyme 
Counting Numbers on the Clock. There's always time for Fun with Friends at Storytime!!

Little Mouse has a New House!

Little Mouse is in the market for a new house.  I recently remade my Little Mouse set and I'm super happy with the little houses! I used a Google image and deconstructed it for my houses. My little mouse is Pellon painted with acrylic paint and a black fabric dot eye. He's flatter and less likely to make a bump under the house and give away his hiding place. This classic hiding game is always a hit and so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!

10 Sleepy Owls

I've made a new set of owls for our Halloween Hoot storytime! Here's a link for the doc.  10 Sleepy Owls. They turned out cuter than I expected. That's always a happy thing! Owls are so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Dragon Fun!

We are going to have so much Fun with Friends at Storytime with these Five Baby Dragons.  I saw these by Jessica @ Storytime in the Stacks and wanted a set of my own. Her rhyme is adorable! Any chance to blow bubbles or kisses is fine by me. I jazzed my set up by adding glitter glue and a tail on my dragons. We have several fun dragon books to use as well as my 10 dragons from a previous post  HERE.  Right now I have NO plans to make a Mama dragon but...I might in the future! LOL!  I'm sure these cuties will make return appearances in storytime. Be sure to check out the Flannel Friday Pinterest boards for more fairytale/dragon/medieval/royal inspiration!

Astronauts in Space!

I love my new set of colorful astronauts! I used an adaptation of the song, One Elephant Went out to Play. Here's a link for the rhyme I used; Five Astronauts Went Up in Space.  I copied Amanda's astronaut on Mr. Keith's blogpost HereI love how they turned out!! They were tedious and halfway through I was tempted to stop at 5 but I'm so glad I did the ten. With a small group the kiddos can help put the astronauts on or take them off the board. They love that!  It's hard to tell in the pic but they have shiny glitter glue 'knobs' on their front panel. The red astronaut has a glitter felt face shield since I didn't have an alternate color to use for that.  These astronauts made storytime out-of-this-world Fun with Friends!

Space Friends!

We're winding down our Summer Reading space adventure but I wanted to share this Rhyme/Story flannelboard set.  I used some pieces I already had and added the rocket and made up a new story/rhyme that used them all! 
Here's the link for Space Friends.  

My rocket was inspired by Mr. Keith at felt-tastic Flannelboard Fun Time!! I had already posted about Astronaut Amy Here!  We have had so much Fun with Friends at Storytime this summer!

Ready for Writing!

Time for a new-for-me theme for storytime! I made a set of Five Little Pencils. Here's a link for the rhyme that I made up to go along with my pencils - Five Little Pencils.  I used a Google image as my pattern and added some fabric paint and glitter glue and googly eyes. The 'paper' is white felt with blue acrylic paint lines. I used masking tape to keep my lines straight and as narrow as possible. This set makes me smile!  We're having so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!
