It's a Flannaversiary!




Today is my 1 year anniversary of participating in Flannel Friday! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite posts from the year.
Flannel Friday Stats and Superlatives
# of my Flannel Friday posts so far:  49? (I missed some weeks, others I posted twice because I am a crazy person. Also I am not good at math.)
Most popular Flannel Friday post by # of hits:  Moose in Love
Most pinned Flannel Friday post: Little Worm Hide and Seek
Coolest opportunity from Flannel Friday: Speaking at Spring Institute
My most used Flannel Fridays: Moose in Love, Little Mouse
My personal favorites: Little Worm and the upcoming Little Moon (look for that on March 30) Mostly because I wrote them both and while they're hardly earth-shattering, I'm proud of myself for stretching my skills.
Most paper: This is Big, Big, Big

Best Flannels for Newbie Librarians
I know that a lot of veteran children's librarians have been doing storytime since before I could read, but I think the following flannels are great for library students, beginning librarians/storytellers, or anyone who just wants something simple but effective (always the way to go, if you ask me): 
It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw
Moose in Love by Diane Briggs
Little Mouse, Little Mouse by Unknown
Little Worm Hide and Seek by Anne Clark
Alice the Camel by Traditional
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin
I Have a Little Pocket by Unknown
 

Thanks to everyone who reads my ramblings for an amazing year!

Anne, Your timing is perfect! Now I have a to-do list for my new flannel board - perfect! Oooh, and I already have pockets for 'I have a little pocket'(built-in)!

Hooray for Flannel Fridays! Congratulations on your 1st Flannel-versary!

Happy anniversary!! Mine is next week! (I think?)
