Flannels, Songs and Story Extensions

Book That Work Well As Flannels
The Mitten by Jim Aylesworth

If You’re Cold & You Know It
(Tune: “If You’re Happy & You Know It”)
If you’re cold and you know it, just say “Brr…”
If you’re cold and you know it, get a blanket…
If you’re cold and you know it, get some mittens…
If you’re cold and you know it, eat some soup…

Oh Me, Oh My
At breakfast time, oh me, oh my
Milk spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my
Have to wash my blanket
And lay it out to dry

At lunch time, oh me, oh my
Peanut butter spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my
Have to wash my blanket
And lay it out to dry

At snack time, oh me, oh my
Mustard spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my
Have to wash my blanket
And lay it out to dry

At dinner time, oh me, oh my
Spaghetti spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my
Have to wash my blanket
And lay it out to dry

At bed time, oh me, oh my
Cocoa spilled on my blanket – oh me, oh my
Have to wash my blanket
And lay it out to dry.

Mitten in the Snow
(Tune: "Farmer in the Dell")
The mitten in the snow, the mitten in the snow
Help us please, so we don't freeze
The mitten in the snow

A (animal) squeezes in,
A (animal) squeezes in,
Help us please, so we don't freeze
The mitten in the snow Keep adding more animals

The mittens in the snow, the mitten in the snow
With a rip and a snap, it split in half,
The mitten in the snow

Ten in the Bed
There were ten in the bed, and the little one said,
Roll over, roll over!
So, they all rolled over, and one fell out!
(countdown)

Books That Translate Well into Flannel/Prop Stories
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep by Iza Trapani
Is There Room on the Feather Bed? by Libba Gray
Joseph Had A Little Overcoat by Simms Taback makes a wonderful fold and tell
*“Three Little Kittens Lost Their Mittens” works well as a flannel story.
