Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See by Bill Martin, Jr. felt story

I’ve been dying to translate Eric Carle’s illustrations into felt! I used Sharpies for some of the detailing, but I think I’ll try working with puffy paint next week for a better visuals. I’m also going to work on my lighting and photography skills 😉

This week’s Flannel Friday Roundup is hosted over at Loons and Quines! Also, I love browsing the Flannel Friday Pinterest account for inspiration and ideas.

  1. You’ve inpsired me. I’ve been thinking that I’d like to do an “Eric Carle Day” but I need to mix things up a bit, can’t just read books the whole time. I think if I did a flannel like this of at least one of his books, it would work well. Now, does anyone have some “Eric Carle” action songs? (HA!)

    • Erica, I do have a few “creative movement” activities and/or “action rhymes” that I do with Eric Carle books. Give me a few days ~ I’m super busy with Valentine’s Day programs right now ~ and I will pull them out and post them. One I am thinking of is “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Turn Around”.

      Oh, here is a quick tip for planning with several books in mind: Think about the characters or animals or themes from the books and then search out songs, fingerboard, etc with those in mind. For example, for Brown Bear I would do something with bears, birds, fish, frogs, ducks, colors, etc. When you think about the book characters and themes, it is easier
      to come up with stuff. 🙂 I have tons of ideas but already took up too much space here. :-/ Email me if you want to brainstorm together. StorytimeabcsATgmailDOTcom

  2. Brown Bear was the first bulletin board I made for student teaching. I know how hard it is to make these look like the original artwork. This is wonderful — a keeper!
