Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
Here is this week’s Flannel Friday!
Carol has a “Taming the Monsters” storytime packed with monster fingerplays, flannels, and books. I thought I knew all the monster songs, but learned a new one in her blog called “5 Little Monsters Sleeping in My Bed!”
Andrea at Librarian vs. Storytime has a cute tube story about the “5 Little Mice.” The tune is sung to “5 Little Ducks.” Her “trick” ending will delight children and grownups, as well as add a variety to the classic song.
Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime has a couple of germ flannels to help talk about hand washing and general hygiene. Maybe it can even be adapted for our adult patrons?! Haha.
Katie at Felt Board Magic is sharing an apple and worm felt game to teach children about size, prepositional phrases, and to expand their vocabulary. So easy to steal!
Nikki at Hey There Library has a fall version of Little Mouse with multi-colored leaves! Perfect for in-house storytimes, as well as perfectly portable for outreach.
Kelly from Ms. Kelly at the Library has a new-to-me version of the 5 Little Pumpkins that ends with a jack-o-lantern surprise!
I’m sharing my flannel/puppet story of Ouch! this week. If you need a story to go with a cute hedgehog puppet, look no further!
