I changed up a normal flannel from Little Cat, Little Cat to Little Fox, Little Fox.  I saw this


flannel on a few different blogs and made it my own by using images from and added Little Fox instead of Little Cat.  The kids took turns guessing where Miss Madelyn hid and others kids who hid Little Fox.  We would say, ‘Little Fox, Little Fox, are you under the Construction Hat?’








Community Worker Song to the Tune of The Farmer in the Dell

The Firemen are brave x2

Heigh ho what do you know, 

The Firemen are brave!

Other Verses: 

Barbers cut our hair

Doctors keep us well

Dentists check our teeth

Bakers bake our bread

Policemen stop traffic









Here is where you can get this awesome printable for this flannel :

I help people get well

I deliver letters

I keep you safe





Song with Maracas

Construction Worker 

IMG_3225This is the way we pound our nails, pound our nails, pound our nails.  

This is the way we pound our nails, all day long!

Book and Flannel


The People in Our Town to the tune of Wheels on the Bus

The people in our town work different jobs, different jobs, different jobs.  The people in our town work different jobs, because that’s what makes a community.

Other Verses:

Librarian says read a book

Firefighter says stop drop and roll

Mailman brings the mail

Doctor makes you well

Dentist says open up





Next week is all about Mo Willems 🙂
