Connecticut Library Association Conference on May 7 & 8 with my colleague, Kari Ann, I took a look at some of my older flannel board stories and decided to try a Do-over! A Make-Over!
As Oprah would say...let's take a look again at the BEFORE photos:
(But we need a little set-up)
Here is the 25 yr old Little White Duck and her friends at the Lily Pad.
They used to be "regulars" in story time...but now they are in the back of the bin, hardly ever making an appearance. Lacking confidence? I don't know - maybe after doing this song for 15 years or so, I just changed things up. I think they look pretty cute!
I drew these on paper, colored them with pencils and markers, and laminated them
...a long time ago!
And now, are you ready? The big reveal!
Let's hear it for the flannelized version
I must say, flannel does make a difference! The pieces are brighter and more importantly, they have depth and texture...they are warmer. I am thinking they are even more fun!
Please let me know what you think!
thanks ~ piper & jane
P.S. (Piper Script) No flannel board pieces were injured in this make-over!
