Welcome to my storytime journey.  Like others before me I want to share what I have done and hopefully inspire you for your own storytimes.

StoriesFlannel 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.
