Teachable Moment Felt Board Stories Review and Giveaway

I recently ran across an awesome Etsy shop and website where Taren Saunders makes these beautiful felt board stories - Teachable Moment! The teacher in me (I used to be an elementary and preschool teacher) jumped for joy and could hardly contain my excitement as I browsed through tons and tons of beautiful stories she has made come to life in felt!!

Taren has been making flannel board stories for over 10 years! She also has worked as an Early Childhood Educator and used many of the flannel board stories she makes with her own classroom. I would have loved to have used them in my classroom too!

As I was browsing around her sites, I immediately thought of my son! He is a major book lover, and I am planning on homeschooling him for at least the first few years of school, so these flannel stories are just perfect for helping these stories come alive!

I received the "Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom" story and a felt board from Taren, and I love them!! The felt board is rollable and ties up like a scroll, so everything can be easily and neatly stored. I also love that we can take it on trips in the car or airplane, and you can easily just roll it out and start telling the story with the characters that are kept in a little baggy. My son just loves this new way to hear a story and loves helping act it out with the little letters and coconut tree. It is just another way to get kids excited about books and reading!

Like I said before, there are so many stories to choose from - you can start with nursery rhymes and then get some finger plays or even some really cute math sets. The next one that I am excited about is the "Hey Diddle, Diddle" one pictured below. How fun is that??

The other great thing about these felt board stories is that they are so reasonably priced. For instance, the "Hey Diddle, Diddle" shown above is only $7.00. These would make great presents for grandkids, children, nieces/nephews, teachers, moms and dads, and the list goes on.

Now, get excited about this!! We are giving away a felt board and 2 stories of your choice in a giveaway right here!! Yay!!
