Yes, flannel boards are “old fashion,” but children today enjoy them just as much as children did 25 years ago. To make a simple flannel board, staple the sides of a file folder and glue felt to the front. You can glue words to stories and finger plays on the back and then store the pieces inside.
*Make simple story characters from felt so children can practice retelling stories.
*Make simple objects or shapes from felt for math activities.
*Cut out children’s photos and attach Velcro to the back. Children can use the characters to create original stories.
*Use felt pieces as visuals for finger plays.
