Uses of flannel boards

Teachers often use flannel boards to enhance storytelling. They may use pictures of the characters and other important parts of the story to illustrate it as they read. Flannel boards are also used for "acting out" songs and poems. They can be used to demonstrate science and math concepts to young children, like the life cycle of a frog or butterfly or addition. They are also commonly used in Sunday school to tell Bible stories. Flannel boards can also be used in students' centers so that the students can manipulate the pieces, providing hands-on learning.
