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 Clker.com 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!
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 :
Song with Flannel:
What is my job? x2
Can you guess? x2
Who Am I? x2
I help people get well
I deliver letters
I put out fires
I keep your pets well
I help you fix things
I keep you safe
Song with Maracas
This is the way we pound our nails, pound our nails, pound our nails.
This is the way we pound our nails, all day long!

Stack the Bricks
Paint the Walls

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.
