Flannel Friday! ¿Eres tu mi mamá?
Friday flannelers, I must apologize. It's been way too long since I added anything new, and I am very sorry! Hopefully, today's contribution will be one that Spanish/bilingual programmers and English programmers alike will be able to use and enjoy. It is a flannel version of the P.D. Eastman classic, Are You My Mother? which is also available in Spanish as ¿Eres tu mi mamá? The story is simple enough - a little birdie hatches from his egg, but his mother is no where to be found. He looks everywhere for her and asks a variety of creatures and objects if they are his mamá - the cat (el gato), the hen (la gallina), the dog (el perro), the cow (la vaca), a car (un coche), a boat (un barco), a plane (un avión) and a BIG thing (una cosa GRANDE) which I have made as a bulldozer for this verion (una maquina excavadora).
I have a couple of extras to go with this post. First, as always, you will see the PDF version at the bottom of the post. Because I am not particularly skilled artistically, but I LOVE making and using flannelboards, it is always helpful for me to have some sort of pattern to scale that I can work with. Hopefully these PDFs are useful for others of you in the same situation. Secondly, I found an awesome YouTube version of this story in Spanish that a super creative mom made for her child. It's definitely worth a listen - this mom has some storytime skills!
Finally, because I feel so terribly about being out of the Flannel Friday loop for so long, look for some extras that will be coming your way this week. Happy flanneling to all!
