I recieved a Flannel Friday submission via email from Josh, a librarian at Berkeley Public Library in Berkeley CA, so I am posting my first ever guest Flannel Friday post. I am happy to do this for anyone who has an idea to share but not a blog of their own (although I encourage you to start a blog if you are interested). You can also contact the host of an upcoming roundup to see if he or she would post your idea as a guest contribution. Here's what Josh has to say:
Here is a flannel board I recently made. The art and rhyme come from the book It's Raining said John Twaining: Danish Nursery Rhymes by N.M. Bodecker. Here are the words:
The patterns are based directly on the illustrations and are a bit too detailed, but it is great for vocabulary, as words like "lyre" aren't used every day.
Thanks for sharing, Josh! I love the idea of using nursery rhymes from other cultures that American kids are unlikely to be familiar with.
Welcome to Flannel Friday, Josh! I agree that it is fun to share different types of Nursery Rhymes with our storytime friends. Thanks for sharing this one. I had not heard it before. :o)ReplyDelete
