Flannel Friday: Mortimer by Robert Munsch

23 Sep

As I promised Tuesday, here’s a flannelboard version of Robert Munsch’s story Mortimer. All of the images are from microsoft clipart, and the stairs are felt.

Here’s Mortimer, ready for bed:

After Mortimer “makes his noise” (CLANG! CLANG! RATTLE-BING-BANG!), his mom, and then his dad, come up the stairs (STOMP STOMP STOMP) and tell him to GO TO SLEEP!* (I added the word bubble for extra print awareness and to cue the kids to say it with me):

After promising to quiet down, Mortimer continues to make noise, even after his sisters, and then the neighbors, come up and tell him to GO TO SLEEP!:

Finally, the police show up and also try to get Mortimer to GO TO SLEEP!:

But of course, Mortimer finally has to tell THEM to be quiet so he can GO TO SLEEP!

*When I made the flannelboard I remembered the story saying “GO TO SLEEP!”; it actually says “BE QUIET!”. I didn’t have time to make that piece. I’ll probably change it, but I think “go to sleep” works fine too. Also, Munsch’s story ends with Mortimer falling asleep, but a former colleague of mine ended it with Mortimer telling everyone to BE QUIET which I think is funnier.

Here’s the video of Robert Munsch reading the book so that you can learn the REAL story:
