Flannel Friday: Where Does This Go?

27 May

Another super-simple conversational flannelboard. No rhymes to remember; I just have a conversation with the kids about where each vehicle belongs. They especially like it when I put things in the wrong places and can correct me.

First I put up a road, cloud (for the sky), water, and train tracks (I use a small portable flannelboard; if you have something larger, you could certainly include more modes of transportation!):

Then I bring out a boat, train, car, motorcycle, and plane. We figure out what each one is, and where they travel, and I am wrong every time.

MA - Mary Airlines, of course!

While this is a short, simple flannel, the kids enjoy it and it would work well for babies and toddlers, too (with less conversation with the babies, I imagine). It can be a vocabulary builder, too, as you talk about the different names for each vehicle: boat, ship, sailboat, etc….

The vehicle patterns came from Everyday Patterns compiled by Jean Warren and Totline (from the library’s reference collection).

    I love your conversation flannelboards — they make me think harder about how to introduce conversation in storytime. This week, after “Five Clean and Dirty Pigs,” we talked about the messiest pig and the cleanest pig — I credit you for making me start doing that!

    This type of flannel board is my favorite. I can’t wait to try this one out!
