Flannel Friday! Baby Kangaroo, Where Are You?

This week’s Flannel Friday is inspired by the baby mouse/baby duck flannelboard that we all (or at least I do) love so much.  I did an Australian Animals storytime theme this week, and I wanted a flannelboard to go with it.  I originally thought about flannelizing the board book:  Who Are You, Baby Kangaroo? by Stella Blackstone, but I decided that there were way too many pieces for that.  So I made the mama kangaroo and the joey and just used them for this flannelboard.

I had baby kangaroo hide behind different colored shapes so that I can use this for a colors or a shapes storytime as well, but I think I’m going to go ahead and make some Australian scenery and other baby Australian animals (baby koala, baby platypus, baby wombat!) to use with this flannelboard in the future.

As for how the flannelboard works:  I hide baby kangaroo behind a shape and have the children pick a shape and say, “Baby kangaroo, where are you?  Are you behind the ______?”

Anne at So Tomorrow is hosting the round up this week.  And don’t forget to check out the Flannel Friday Pinterest or the Facebook Group!
