B-I-N-G-O!

Here's an oldie but a goodie for today's #FlannelFriday! It's the traditional song, "BINGO!"


The letters are on the front and I flip them over to indicate where to clap. This is for my benefit as well because I am extremely absent-minded.

You most likely know this one, but just in case, here are the words:

There was a farmer who had a dog,

And Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o.

And on the subsequent verses, you begin to substitute a clap instead of saying the letter, like this:
There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
(clap)-I-N-G-O
(clap)-I-N-G-O
(clap)-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o.

There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.Link
(clap)-(clap)-N-G-O
(clap)-(clap)-N-G-O
(clap)-(clap)-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o.

Patterns are from The Flannel Board Storytelling Book by Judy Sierra (not sure which edition it's in, possibly both?)

That's a really good idea about the letters. My kids and I almost always forget how many claps we're on when we do this song!

Always a crowd pleaser! I am jealous of how good your background came out. Did you sew it together?

Mollie, I bought this portable felt board from Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/42192277
