Here is a Bunny
Here is a bunny with ears so funny hold up index and middle fingers for ears
And here is his hole in the ground make a circle with the other hand
At the first sound he hears, he pricks up his ears extend two fingers
And hops in the hole in the ground fingers jump into the hole

Little Bunny
There was a little bunny
Who lived in the wood make finger ears
He wiggled his ears wiggle fingers
Like a good bunny should
He hopped by a squirrel hop fingers
He hopped by a tree
He hopped by a duck
And he hopped by me!
He winked at the squirrel point to eye
He winked at the tree
He winked at the duck
But he made faces at me! wiggle nose

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 not 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. If not, I will provide the title and author of the book that was my inspiration.
