Flannel Friday: Dear Zoo

9 Sep

Most of us are familiar with Rod Campbell’s book Dear Zoo. It’s a storytime classic! Kizclub has great printable storytime pages that can be easily turned into a flannelboard story. I printed, cut out, and mounted each piece on construction paper. I covered each with contact paper, and then attached the animal to it’s box with book tape so it could be opened. A velcro button on the back of each attaches it to the flannelboard.

I especially like that Kizclub includes the key words of the story. I put these below each of the boxes, after opening, and after reading the word and running my finger under it from left to right. Helps the kids make print connections!
