I'm making an activity ahead of time for one of our Family Storytimes with the theme GET IN SHAPE! using the books; My Heart Is Like A Zoo, Perfect Square and Robot, Zombie, Frankenstein!
I made flannel/felt pieces for the main characters from the book Robot, Zombie, Frankenstein! by Annette Simon from the Bot Builder patterns (pages 10 & 11) in the Fun Kit provided by the book's publisher.
All the pieces, with the exception of the green robot's necklace, are separate. I plan to get the children to bring pieces up to the front to 'build' the robots while we discuss shapes and colours.
I'm liking the trailer, and hope our mixed-aged group will enjoy the story and craft activity.
Oh, didn't I say? The book hasn't arrived yet, so this will be my first time of making a flannel storytime extension activity WITHOUT having first read the book. It could all go pear-shaped, so wish me luck!
Update: Since publication of this post this flannel activity has been mentioned on author's website on both her news and Robot, Zombie, Frankenstein activity pages - Thank you Annette Simon!
