If You’re a Monster and You Know It

If youre a monster and you know it

I’m getting ready for my month of monster mayhem. Instead of making flannel pieces to go with Ed Emberley’s story / song, I found pre-made “Furry Friends” from Trend Enterprises here. I just taped them to craft sticks and they’re ready to use! You can download the free song to go with Emberley’s story here. I matched up each monster with a color. (Of course you can make your own felt monsters like Falling Flannelboards or Notes from the Story Room.) You can pass one out to each child before you begin the story. When it’s their turn they can stand up and act their monster out:

Snort and growl = pink

Pink snort and growl

Smack claws = yellow

Yellow smack claws

Stomp your paws = blue

Blue stomp paws

Twitch your tail = red

Red twitch tail

Wiggle your warts = green

Green wiggle warts

Give a roar = orange

Orange roar

Now you’re ready to turn into a monster! For more ideas check out Fun with Friends at Storytime, she’s hosting Flannel Friday this week.
