I finally made two felt storyboards for the kids about a month ago. Hooray! It’s something I’ve been wanting to do ever since I became a mom, but then that thing called life got in the way. You know how hectic things can get sometimes, right? Anyway, now that I created these two I’m motivated to do more since the kids really seem to enjoy them.
The first storyboard I created was “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. When we recite the nursery rhyme I spell out some of the words like, “sun”, “rain”, “down”, “out”, “up”.
Both of the kids love the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom so I just had to create a storyboard to go along with it. Whenever I read the book aloud to them I add all of the letters going up the coconut tree just like in the story. This helps to reinforce letter recognition.
I also use the felt alphabet letters to spell specific sight words as shown in the picture below. So fun!
I think using felt images and letters are a great way for kids to have fun with sight words without even realizing that they are learning. Also, felt storyboards are a wonderful way to spice up your storytime.
I hope you find this activity to be helpful to you and your little ones!
