I am a HUGE fan of flannel board activities as an additive literacy activity for preschool-aged bambinos. And? I make my own, saving myself a bundle! Last night I created a set of 6 flannel board activities that include critical thinking prompts (riddles) and cute pictures to accompany! The set includes: Transportation, What Shape Am I?, Who's Hatching, On the Playground, Mystery Colors, and 5 Little Monkeys (fingerplay). I made them all in about an hour! I used the patterns found here.
