Flannel Friday: Build a Robot

This flannel friday game(?) is a mish-mash of a few different posts. Take a little bit of K's Rainbow Stew and a bit of Library Quine's Get in Shape Robots, mix it in with my professed love of drawing complex pictures by breaking them down into individual shapes and you've got Build a Robot.

We start by looking at lots and lots of shapes, talking about color, size and of course, shape.

After we get them all up on the board, we put them in our pot and stir it, stir it, stir it a lot.
(I don't actually have a pot. Just a cardboard box that I covered in butcher paper. But my kids have great imaginations.) 

We reach in and pull out... A ROBOT!
Then we talk about where all the shapes went.

I have two robot "sets" right now, but one is usually all anyone has the attention span to finish.

The Flannel Friday Round-Up is being hosted by Kay at Storytime ABC this week. For even more flannel-y goodness, check out the Flannel Friday website.
