Flannel Friday 5/22/2015

IMG_2007[1]Although not a flannel board activity, I absolutely love folder games and rhymes.  They are so great when you have all the pieces in one spot (including the rhyme) which is perfect because you don’t have to memorize the rhyme when you have something like this.  This is a farm themed folder activity.  I found a piece of clip art of a barn (specifically one with a barn door) and printed it a large as I could on a piece of paper and glued it to a folder.  After it had dried, I cut the barn door on three sides so it could be folded down to reveal the animals in the barn.  On the other side of the folder, I glued the words to the rhyme.

Open up the barn door, the spring goes “Boink.”
TIMG_2009[1]here’s a pig in the barn, saying, “Oink, oink, oink.”
Open up the barn door before the clock strikes two.
There’s a cow in the barn, saying, “Moo, moo, moo.”
Open up the barn door, it’s a sunny day.
There’s a horse in the barn, saying, “Neigh, neigh, neigh.”
Open up the barn door, singing, “Tra-la-la.”
There’s a sheep in the barn, saying, “Baa, baa, baa.”
Open up the barn door, while the sky is blue.
There’s a rooster in the barn, saying, “Cock-a-doodle-do!”
Open up the barn door and don’t get off the track.
There’s a duck in the barn, saying, “Quack, quack, quack.”

These folder rhymes are great for early literacy – IMG_2010[1]this one is perfect for practicing animal sounds, rhyming, and if children get to interact with it themselves, they can practice fine motor skills when opening the barn door.
