Flannel Friday: Jamberry

We used this flannel song in our Bears and Berries storytime. This storytime activity uses repetition, number sequencing, and would work well in a storytime on summer, food, or berries. It is based on the book Jamberry by Bruce Degen.

These flannel pieces were easy to make.  All we did was draft a canoe shape and five different coloured berries.  Feel free to use berries from other flannel stories you have laying around. It was quite nice to have the berries as a visual cue on the flannel board that we could refer to throughout the storytime.

Here’s a video showing how we used the felt pieces as a flannel song.

Here’s how we sang it:

Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
1 berry, 2 berries, pick me a strawberry
Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
3 berries, 4 berries, pick me a blueberry
Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
5 berries, 6 berries, pick me a red cherry
Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
7 berries, 8 berries, pick me a blackberry
Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
9, berries, 10 berries, pick me a raspberry.
Under the bridge and over the dam, looking for berries, berries for jam.
