Flannel Friday Guest Post Palooza: Boots by Laurie Berkner

In celebration of Flannel Friday's 4th birthday, bloggers are hosting a Guest Post Palooza! What this means is that current bloggers are pairing up with those who would like to contribute to Flannel Friday and share their great flannel ideas.

Today my blog is hosting a post about this cute flannel from Leah King, a librarian at the Bowman Regional Public Library in North Dakota. Greetings from Ohio, Leah! 



Thank you to Kim for posting my first Flannel Friday contribution on her blog!!!

I love action songs and getting the children up off the benches during story time!  Laurie Berkner gets me bopping in no time flat.  When I did a Rain Story Time, I decided to flannelize her song Boots.  We get to spell and stomp and dance.  Does it get any better than that?! 



B-O-O-T-S boots!
B-O-O-T-S red boots!
In my red boots, in my red boots
I stomp around in my red boots.
In my boots (stomp, stomp)
In my boots (stomp, stomp)
I stomp around in my boots.




B-O-O-T-S boots!
B-O-O-T-S frog boots!
In my frog boots, in my frog boots
I jump up and down in my frog boots.
In my boots (ribbit, ribbit )
In my boots (ribbit, ribbit)
I jump up and down in my boots.






B-O-O-T-S boots!
B-O-O-T-S dancing boots!
In my dancing boots, in my dancing boots
I dance around in my dancing boots.
In my boots (bah, bah, bah)
In my boots (doo, doo, doo)
I dance around in my boots.




B-O-O-T-S boots!
B-O-O-T-S rain boots!
In my rain boots, in my rain boots
I splash around in my rain boots.
In my boots (splish, splash)
In my boots (splish, splash)
I splash around in my boots.



You could also change up this song according to your story time.  My kids would like “oinking” in “pig boots” as well as acting out in many other types of boots.

You can see Laurie Berkner singing her fabulous song Boots in the following YouTube link:

  3. I MUST do this! I am a huge Laurie Berkner fan. I have been wanting to learn Boots on the ukulele, but this flannel may be even better.
