Here is a new flannel board set for the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk, by Charles G. Shaw. This book, about a cloud that makes different shapes, will go well with a Weather theme.
To make these, I printed them on card stock paper, laminated and cut out, and added a Velcro tab to the back (the sticky side of the Velcro) to use on a flannel board. You could also put magnets on the back to use on a magnetic board or a cookie sheet.
These cards could be used to retell the story, sequence the story, or match to beginning letter sounds. You could also use them for a rhyming activity by placing a few of the cards on the board: use 2 cards or as many as 6 cards, depending on the level of your group. Call out a word and ask them to find the card that rhymes. For example, call out “jig” for the child to find pig. Use silly words as needed. Examples:
- rabbit: babbit, habit
- bird: word, heard
- tree: bee, three
- ice cream: mice dream
- flower: tower, bower
- pig: wig, jig
- cake: snake, lake
- sheep: jeep, keep
- owl: fowl, howl
- mitten: smitten, kitten
- squirrel: whirl, swirl
- angel: rangel, zangel
