Sports Flannels for SRC 2016

By Awnali Mills

WARNING: SPORTS METAPHORS AHEAD

If you’re like me, you’ve got an SRC theme of sports up to bat, and are looking for some flannels to sign on for a sports themed storytime.  And, if you’re like me, you’ve found that sports flannels are pretty light on the ground.  Even Flannel Friday’s Sports Pinterest board was a disappointment. So, naturally it was time to drop back and punt.

I recruited Fun with Friends’ football version of Little Mouse, Little Mouse, changing the glitter stickers she used to shapes to add another learning element.

Where's the Football?

I also pulled out a Sports Ball Guessing Game out of retirement that I had made for a previous storytime.

Then I went to the mat and started mentally going through tried and true flannels that are good playing lots of positions.  After striking out several times, I finally hit upon the perfect adaptation.  I changed One Elephant went Out to Play to:

One Player Went Out to Play

One player went out to play
On a soccer field one day
He had such enormous fun
He called for another one to come
“HEY, PLAYER!”
Two players, etc
Six players went out to play
On a soccer field one day
The ball went BOUNCE and the goalie went WHOA!
And all the players said THAT’S A GOAL!

One Player Went Out To Play

 

I got the images from My Cute Graphics.
