One of my goals this year is to make flannel pieces for all the songs I sing on a regular basis. I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile, mainly to act as a visual cue to both the kids and the ESL caregivers who may not know the songs yet. So this week I’m sharing how to make flannel pieces for one of my all-time favourite storytime songs: Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!
Firstly, if you don’t know about Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, we’ve recorded a couple versions.
The original from three years ago! Perfect for mixed-age groups as you can jump with older kids while little ones are lifted into the air by caregivers.
Extra verses! You can go to the sun and the stars too. Watch until the end for an adorable baby adaptation.
Ahoy, mateys! Try this version out when doing a pirate or ocean themed storytime.
This sign language version has ASL you can teach to your storytimers before singing.
Now to the pieces! All of these pieces are basic shapes with a few embellishments. A huge shout-out to my co-worker Karen for helping me make these!
