Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime: Going to the Moon? This summer perhaps...

Going to the Moon? This summer perhaps...

This song, "If You're Going to the Moon, Wear Your Boots" is pretty great to use before singing Zoom, Zoom, Zoom or Laurie Berkner's Rocketship Run. First, put the stars and planets up. Then the astronaut goes up, sans spacesuit, floating in space. I cover his tummy and ask the kids which other body parts need to be covered. We start singing... (To the tune of Happy and You Know It, rhyme adapted from OG storytime resource, Mel's desk) If you’re going to the moon, wear your boots If you’re…

This silly song has immediate toddler appeal. Throw a puppet up on your head while singing, and you'll be golden. Pig on Her Head is by Laurie Berkner, from her 1998 album Buzz, Buzz. She plays this song with E/B7/A (as she's kindly shared on her site), and I've transposed into our standard easy-ukulele chords.…

There's a little white duck, sitting in the water A little white duck, doing what he oughter...  Super cute flannel version of this classic song!

Little White Duck

I've always loved the Little White Duck song. I especially like this version of the book, but I only have a small board book copy which is hard to use with a large group, and which I believe is missing some of the pages from the larger copy. Sometimes I'll use my classroom's old, worn out, too-small felt set of Little White Duck, along with Ivan Ulz's version of the song. But that set is so old, worn out, and too-small that I had to DO something about it!! So, I did this: Here's a video of…

Read, Rhyme and Sing: Flannel Friday: Seis Perritos

Flannel Friday: Seis Perritos

I added a puppy to my set of growing puppies so I would have seis perritos for a Hispanic Heritage storytime. You have probably seen Alma Flor Ada’s adorable book Diez Perritos. There are many versions of this traditional nursery rhyme - some where the puppies meet terrible fates. I love the version from Songs for Wiggleworms by Old Town School of Folk Music. Even though I planned to play the recording in Spanish, I asked a friend to translate just to make sure none of my puppies ate a…
