…storytime, books, and ideas

Today’s Flannel Friday is inspired by… someone on Flannel Friday. I found this on someone’s Flannel Friday blog post, and I just cannot find it again! If it was you, or you know who it was, comment with the link and I’ll update.

I am doing vehicles for my storytime today, as I have a couple of boys who are obsessed. Any time there is a truck, or crane, or tractor, or just about anything with wheels in a book, they point it out. We have to sing the Wheels on the Bus every week. So this week, storytime will rock their worlds.

I wanted a simple vehicle Flannel story that could be used in other storytimes. This one works for vehicles and colours. These figures were fun to make, and did not take a lot of time. They have some personality, too, I think. Hard to pick my favourite, but it might be the VW bus!

Here are the books I plan to use:
The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort
Cars Galore by Peter Stein
The Construction Crew by Lynn Meltzer
Truck Stuck by Sallie Wolf
That’s How! by Christoph Niemann
I Stink! by Kate & Jim McMullan

I didn’t find a rhyme on the original post, and you can make up your own, as I did. Here’s mine:

Red Jeep, red jeep, what do you see?
I see a Blue Van Looking at me.
Blue van, blue van, what do you see?
I see a… Green Bus, Pink Limo, Yellow Cab, Purple Car
Purple Car, Purple Car, what do you see?
I see a DRIVER looking at me!
Driver, Driver, what do you see? I see a traffic jam looking at me!!

This week’s round-up is hosted by Story Time Secrets.

  1. I love the felt vehicles! As you said, they have real personality. I have an extremely busy, physical Kidergarten class and have been wanting to use felts more. With this group I would definitely need to adapt it to be all about trucks. If I get it organized, I’ll let you know how it goes…

  2. Oh my gosh! I cracked up when I read the last line of your rhyme! Very cute!

    I use Brown Bear as my inspiration a lot. I will have to steal this one from you ~ just for the last line if nothing else! LOL!

    Your vehicles sure DO have personality! Very well done. 🙂

  3. Love when storytime rocks a kid’s world! 😀 Those are some sweet rides you came up with – hope that storytime is a huge success… thanks for sharing!

  4. Great felt story!! My ratio of boys to girls coming to storytime is increasing. I know they would love this!!
