Flannel Friday – Splash!

I’m ready for summer and bathing suits and water and sun. So this week I want to share a fun story called Splash! by Ann Jonas about a litle girl who has a pond in her backyard and all the animals that come and go (some not by choice!) into the pond.  It’s a fun counting story as well.  With my younger kids I just had them make louder and quiter “Splash!” sounds depending on the size of the animal that goes (or falls) into the pond.  With the older crowd you can have them also answer the repeating question on each page, “How many are in my pond?”  For the really astute listeners, you can also ask them to watch for which animal goes into the pond and stays there (besides the fish) all the rest of the animals come and go during the course of the book.  It’s a very busy pond 🙂  You can also ask them which animal, that is shown in the book, never goes into the pond.

You can find the rest of the Flannel Friday roundup  at Notes from the Story Room.
