Update: Here is the pdf so you can make this flannelboard: Clothesline Clues To The Jobs People Do
This week’s #FF is based on one of my favorite picture books from 2012:
I made this magnet board last fall for our teacher workshop, and forgot to post it for flannel friday. Anyway, I love this book for a million reasons, but here’s a few: 1) it’s beautiful, 2) brilliant concept + perfect execution; 3) it’s silly; 4) it captures how kids think of grownups doing their jobs in a whimsical way. Anyway, it’s pretty simple.
I’ve only used it a couple of times, but the kids loved it. I hung yarn, and used some handy dandy magnetized mini clothespins to hold up the clothes. Then I read the story, and we discussed what the clothes on the line said about the people who hung them. The group was too big to let the kids take turns dressing the dolls peacefully during the story.
Instead I I left the pieces up during playtime. They had a ball putting on the Ms Cate’s Storytime Show, and the moms and I had a ball being the audience.
Oh shoot! I have a pdf of these images. I had to (sort of) draw these images based on an assortment of dress up dolls I found on the internet. I thought I had it saved on dropbox, but that was a figment of my imagination. I will update this post when I #sundaylibrarian.
