Welcome to Read It Again!
Thanks to everyone who contributed to Flannel Friday this week! Thank you also to everyone who gave a song or rhyme suggestion. For those of you who missed the original post I asked for favorite songs and rhymes for story time. (Unfortunately that post was deleted when I started editing. The plan was to keep the link for everyone who used it in their post, now I know to use a separate document if I want to get a jump on things!)
I always like to see what the favorites of others are because I am continually looking for new song ideas. I use 3 songs on our library ipod every week (and that does not include our 'Hello' song) and I try not to repeat songs too often. If you are looking for some new ideas as well, check out some of these suggestions from our Flannel Friday contributors:
All the fish by Sue Schnitzer - this one is one of my favorites
Criss, cross, line, line - compliments of Library Quine, lyrics can be found on her resource page here.
Driving in my car by Ralph Covert - compliments of Amy
Five in the bed - complements of Miss Courtney who also does it as Three in the bed
Lightning flashed - compliments of Maureen
Two little blackbirds - compliments of Maria
Wiggle your lah dee da by Ralph Covert - compliments of Lisa
And now, the reason you are really here, the Flannel-riffic Round-Up for June 15, 2012:

Cate from Storytiming made her very own flannel Spider puppet/ring to use with the Itsy Bitsy spider.

Erin from Falling Flannelboards shares her versatile adaptation of A Tree for Me!

I believe that concludes our Flannel fun for the week. If that is too sad for you, you may continue browsing past Flannel round-ups at the Flannel Friday website. Or, you can click the Flannel Friday button to the right and pop over to Pinterest for a visual feast of Flannel...and craft foam!
