flannel friday round-up for 12/9/2011...

12/12/11 -
WHEW! This is harder than it looks! :)
I think I FINALLY have all the awesome contributions from last week here on the round-up.
Thanks to everyone for their patience - I appreciate it!!

It's Flannel Friday, y'all! I am so happy to be hosting this week... I've only been blogging for about three months and Flannel Friday was my inspiration to get started. Thank you all so much for sharing your ideas and experiences in addition to your awesome flannel artwork - this newbie YS librarian remains forever in your debt!

Without further ado, here's this week's fantastic round-up (in no particular order - because I'm random like that) ;D :

Andrea at Roving Fiddle Head takes inspiration from Storytiming to create her own version of Ouch! - hedgehogs = super cute, people.

Megan at Busy Crafting Mommy shares her Animals in Winter storytime plan with an awesome flannelization of Time to Sleep. Her bear hibernation craft alone is worth the click. ;)

Melissa at Mel's Desk gets her carpentering skills on with "Five Little Nails". It's a storytime engineering masterpiece, if you ask me.

Allison at Miss Allison is Blogging! takes expandable wallets to a new level with There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow.

Linda at Notes from the Story Room shares the story of "Crow's Great Gift". If you've had a bad opinion of a crow since you first watched Dumbo, you may have a change of heart after reading this one.

Katie at Story Time Secrets throws the door wide open to welcome all sorts of family visitors in her original tune, "Who Is Knocking At My Door?" - perfect for the season of family gatherings!

Mollie from What Happens In Storytime...  replaces monkeys with snowmen for some (medical emergency) fun in "Four Little Snowmen". I always wondered why that mom didn't encourage the monkeys/snowmen to do something else... :D

Natasha from Natasha the Artsy Librarian brings snowman building indoors with "Let's Build a Snowman" ... and she has a BOATLOAD of awesome stories picked out for a snowy storytime!

Cate from Storytiming gets her kids bibliobopping with a Jellybean Countdown! What's a bibliobop? Only the funniest sounding library program I've heard of in a long time!

Katie from Recipe for Reading has cooked up her own penguin tale (that I believe I will be using this coming storytime!!) in "A New Color for Mr. Penguin". If you've been dying to try out a box story, this may be the one for you!

Mary from Miss Mary Liberry brings a classic to flannel - The Mitten by Jan Brett. She even tells us how to get all Brett's animals illustrations in one fell swoop. ;)

And finally, I - Liz/Mrs. D, here at Putting Smiles on Faces - am sharing my flannel version of a NickJr. online/animated story, Rumble, Grumble, Gurgle, Roar! by Jonny Belt.

Next week's host is Linda at Notes from the Story Room

Don't forget!
