It's National Poetry Month and I've been making poems and nursery rhymes into felts sets. This week, I used Jack Prelutsky's poem "I Planted a Whistle" from his collection I've Lost My Hippopotamus. I'm looking forward to using this set during my "Dig Into Reading" summer reading program.
The first two lines of the poem read, "I planted a whistle and grew a flute." The poem continues on in that manner. There are 22 pieces in the set and they are as follows: whistle, flute, shoelace, boot, button, blouse, whisker, mouse, tire, truck, feather, duck, ribbon, hat, claw, cat, collar, coat, anchor, boat, sheet, and ghost.
All the patterns came from Microsoft Office Clipart except for the claw and sheet which I free handed. The details are puff paint.
Andrea has the roundup this week. Want to know more about Flannel Friday? Find us on the FF blog, on Facebook, and on Pinterest.
