Flannel Friday Round-Up for September 30, 2011

Hi. I’m hosting this week’s Flannel Friday Round-up — all Flannel Boards, All the Time.  It’s a special 6-month anniversary edition of Flannel Friday Round-up filled with lots and lots of social networking opportunities.

Flannel Friday has become my favorite blog-related activity. I find myself thinking more about flannel boards and how I use them in story time these last 24 or so weeks.  It’s really helped me professionally.  Thank you all for sharing your talents!

Now on to the Social Media stuff:

1.  Pinterest, Custom Searching, and Blog Bling:  Melissa From Mel’s Desk created this beautiful button for you to proudly display on your blog. (Once you have the code embedded on your blog, the button will link to the Flannel Friday Pinterest pages.)

Isn't it pretty? This image will lead you to Mel's page to get the code...

Since it’s been six months of Flannel Friday, you may have a hard time keeping all these great flannel ideas straight. The Pinterest board is a great, but Miss Melissa has a Custom Google search: Searching the Sources which is hugely helpful!  (I used it yesterday!)

2.  Participating.  If you want to learn more about Flannel Friday and how to participate, Anne is the keeper of dates and what-to-dos.

3.  Facebook.  Now Flannel Friday is on Facebook!  Find it here!  By the way, there are a lot of Flannel Friday groups on Facebook.  This group isn’t so much about plaid shirts …

This week’s Non-Flannel Contributions:

Sometimes story time materials aren’t made with flannel.  Props and puppets are a great tool to use in story time.
