Everybody sit down

Teen Anime Club - Silhouettes Game

Howdy
Drawing inspiration from an online Anime Silhouette Quiz; I created a paper version you can print.  This nine page printable features 15 silhouettes of popular anime and manga characters, an answer key with character names and their corresponding series and a page of quiz sheets.  To test your teens knowledge at your next Anime Club just print the first eight sheets.  Cut the sheets in half and post the 15 images around the space you use for club meetings.  Stash the answer key somewhere handy.  Next determine how many copies of the quiz you need and print those pages.  Provide your teens with pencils and a time limit to make their guesses.  If you want to up the fun you can offer a prize to the teen or team of teens with the most correct answers. You can also be tricky and arrange images in a random order.  You wouldnt think that would be an issue for some reason it bamboozled my participants.  This activity took my teens about ten minutes and most got about half correct.  No one got all the answers correct.  You can find a downloadable PDF file or a Publisher file.  If you think your teens will have enough of a challenge with the silhouettes provided you can just print the file and use it as is, or you can download the publisher file and add images that could be more popular with your group.

Flannel Friday Roundup for 6/23/17

Howdy

Goat Yoga may not catch on but the Goat Props from Wendy at Flannel Board Fun are just classic. 
This felt board is Totes My Goats!

Do you need a felt board and rhyme for a tiger or zoo theme? Look no further than Amy at One Little Librarian and her flannel friday: tigers in the jungle creation.  For your viewing pleasure, not one or two but five tiger kittehs. 




Let's have some birthday fun with Kate at Felt Board Magic who brings us  Four Birthday Presents Felt Board Set and Today I have a Birthday Felt Board Set.



Here are two felt boards from my blog, One for the Books.  You can find my Lego Counting board and my Trash Trucks board at Preschool Storytime - Lego/Construction.


Join us in two weeks for the July 7 Round Up at Felt Board Fun.

Can’t wait for a great idea? Check out the Flannel Friday Blog, Facebook, and Pinterest pages!
