Flannel Board Activities for Circle Time Success

Hang around me for just a short time and you’ll see that I love activities that involve a flannel board.

I personally love to tell stories using my flannel board. As soon as the kids see me bring it out they get so excited! Check out my retelling of a Russian Folktale, “The Enormous Turnip”.

I also love Pinterest for more Flannel Board ideas. My all time favorite source is “Flannel Board Fridays” on Pinterest.

They are mainly librarians with a TON of amazing flannel board ideas that will last you well into your 20th year of teaching and beyond. Click here to visit their boards.

That’s where I found this cute rocket ship song below. I for sure plan to use it the next time we do an outer space theme.


Five Little Rockets

Five little rockets ready to zoom,

This one says, “There’s not enough room.”

It starts its engine;

Ready to fly,

Looks at the others and waves good-bye.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1, blast off!

Four little rockets…[continue counting down to one rocket]

One little rocket ready to zoom,

This one says, “Everyone’s gone!”

It starts its engine;

Ready to fly,

Looks at us and waves good-bye.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1, blast off!

A Seattle-based music education business specializing in early childhood music and movement classes founded by Jocelyn Manzanarez in September of 2003. Jocelyn held her first class in the basement of the Tahoma School District bus barn in Maple Valley, Washington with just six babies. Along with their mamas, Jocelyn cultivated the babies’ innate musical abilities and interests through play, song, movement and love. She knew her quest to touch as many young children as possible had begun. This first class will also be known as Musically Minded’s first Budding Beethovens.
