The Flannel Friday for Sept. 27 is here! You’ll find lots of ideas for autumn, plus some fish and a traffic light prop. Get inspired with these lovely ideas from your fellow Flannelizers!

Here are the links!

Here’s a last-minute addition: Little Cloud

But wait, there’s more! Check out these cool sheep, sung to the tune of Baby Shark.

..and next week’s host is Kay, who will be hosting the Halloween Round up!

And now, a guest post from Lois Burgess, who does storytimes in two of our branches.Apples 002

This is my first submission to Flannel Friday and I’m SO EXCITED!  A little over a year ago, I started doing a weekly and monthly preschool storytime at two local libraries.  It was shortly after, that I found this wonderful site.  I guess you could say “I’m in Love”! You guys are so generous, creative and just plain fun! 

 My contribution isn’t a flannel but a handmade prop made by my 87 year old  mum!  I stumbled across a pattern for knitted apples online and enlisted her help in knitting me a bushel of apples!  I think they are just adorable.  Here is the link to the patternI am going to use them with our “Fall Harvest” theme next week.  I found this song on Molly’s blog, “What Happens In Storytime” and made a couple of tiny tweaks:

 

    “Picking Up the Apples

(tune: Paw Paw Patch)

Picking up the apples and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

Picking up the apples and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

                             Picking up the apples and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

                             Way down yonder from the apple tree.

 

                             Picking up the red ones and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

                             Picking up the red ones and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

                             Picking up the red ones and puttin’ ’em in the basket.

                             Way down yonder from the apple tree.

 

I plan to give each child an apple before we sing the song.  When they hear the color of their apple, they will come up an put it in the bushel basket.  After singing, we can count and sort the apples by their colors.  But we just can’t eat them!  Happy fall everyone.

 Thanks Angela for hosting Flannel Friday!
