Flannel Board Stories

Flannel board stories are some of my favorite things to do during storytime. Since my storytimes tend to be smaller groups I love having children come up and help me manipulate the pieces. It gives them the opportunity to no only listen to a story but interact with it in a tactile way. Given the curious nature of little hands I have altered my approach in creating my flannels. I almost never glue anything now, but rather sew them for added strength.

Below are the flannel boards that I have created. When possible I will include a PDF of the words. It not, I will provide the title and author of the book that was my inspiration.
