Flannel Friday – A-Hunting We Will Go Down Under

I’m so excited to have this be my first Flannel Friday post!
Whenever I find myself in need of a great new storytime idea, I find myself turning to Flannel Friday, so it’s wonderful to finally be able to take part in this wonderfully creative, welcoming community.

Today I have an Australian spin on the traditional song “A-Hunting We Will Go”.  I’ve had this one for a while, so I don’t remember where I found the rhyme, but all the images were found via a Google Image search.

A-hunting we will go,
A-hunting we will go,
The king brown snake will eat some cake
and then we’ll let him go!

At the end of the rhyme it’s fun to have the kids see if they can remember the names to all the different animals.  To make it even more interactive you can also have the kids act out what the animals are doing.

Lisa of Libraryland is hosting the Flannel Friday round-up this week.  Check out all the other wonderful ideas there!
