K4 Curriculum: Write The Letter

A nice reader had this fun idea for my K4 curriculum additions! It’s called “Write The Letter”. It is similar to the Beginning Sounds Worksheets I posted, but this time your student has to write the letter that each picture starts with. Click here to download the Write The Letter worksheets. You can have your student write the uppercase letters or lowercase letters depending on what your child needs to work on most. I alternated the pictures so the letter’s weren’t in ABC order just to make it a little more difficult. These activities are part of my K4 level expansion to my Letter of the Week Curriculum, click on the images below to see more activities. The K4 curriculum isn’t quite finished yet, so until I get it packaged all nice and purdy you can download from my posts! … [Read more...]

Teeny Tot School: An update

I know I haven’t posted much on the Teeny Tot lately, so I thought I’d take a day to post on her whereabouts as of late. Fear not, for those of you missing her, she’s energetic as ever, and even more so if that’s possible! She’s really been having fun with our new Hot Dots Jr. Getting Ready for School kit. She absolutely loves the Ace Pen because he lights up and makes noises when she clicks the dots. I have these wooden lacing shapes from Holgate Toys. They’re perfect for the Teeny Tot because they’re very sturdy and easy to push the laces through. One of her favorite times of the day is reading time. Every day my 2nd grader reads her level reader to the Teeny Tot and my preschooler. They switch sitting on her lap after each page, it’s quite cute to watch. She absolutely LOVEs our Learning Resources lacing buttons! This activity will usually occupy her for at least 5-10 minutes. Lakeshore Counting Keys: Here’s another fun activity for the Teeny Tot. She doesn’t make any patterns … [Read more...]

Downloading from 4-Shared

Hi everyone, I wanted to take a quick moment to talk about downloading my Printable Materials. I’ve had several questions and some issues from you all saying that you can’t get the files downloaded and that’s no good! First, I want to mention that you do NOT have to sign up for a paid account with 4share in order to receive my printables! Of course they’ll advertise for that and try to get you to sign up, but don’t be fooled in to that! Download instructions: When you click on one of my download links it will bring you to the www.4shared.com  site. Then you click the BIG BLUE button that says “Download Now”. You have to wait for the little countdown clock to get to zero and where the clock is it will turn into another link that says “Download file now”. Once the countdown clock is finished, the area that says “Your download link will appear after wait” will turn into a link that says “Download File Now”. Click on that link. You should get a gray pop-up window that asks if … [Read more...]

Salut and welcome to our Expedition Earth week on Canada! We had a great time learning about this unique country and the kids loved that they are our neighbor! Of course we started off stamping our passports and finding Canada on the map (yes, that’s the Teeny Tot, she insists on doing everything the big kids do): Here are some of the activities we did this week along with things I managed to capture on film! Say “Hello” in French: salut (silent t) , “Thank You” : merci Locate Canada and capital Ottawa on the wall map Sang a Canadian song Completed mapping and flag worksheets Read Children Just Like Me Book on Canada and found where they live on the map Learn about the Inuit Community Watched some cool videos from Nunavut Canada!

Trip Clip Review & Giveaway

I recently had the privilege of reviewing a super fun idea from The Trip Clip! These cute little clipboards are so fun and handy! We keep ours in the car and the kids can play educational games every time we get in to go! Their activities include Crosswords, Coloring Pages, Hangman, Sudoku for kids, Travel Bing (this was my families favorite) and many more! There’s even a kid based shopping list so they can have something to do at the grocery store. Each clipboard comes with a fun 4-color pen that includes blue, red, green, and black ink. What’s the Cost: $19.95 and once you purchase the clipboard you’ll get full access to their downloads so you can print anything your kids like. One thing that surprised me was the size of the clipboard. It is only 6x9 so it was smaller than I’d originally thought, but since we’ve been keeping them in the car I think they’re actually the perfect size. It is made of sturdy plastic material and includes a velcro dot on the board and pen so it stays … [Read more...]

TEACH Magazine: Newsletter Review

Hello Ladies! (And gentlemen, are there any men out there reading? I never know…) Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the Encouraging Moments newsletter. Now, first off I want to say that I try to be careful how many things I subscribe to. Since starting this blog, my email can be so out of control it makes me want to climb in a hole and pretend my powers out! So needless to say, I don’t need a lot of email cluttering up my inbox. I try to keep my emails cleaned out so I can see all the wonderful nuggets of wisdom, suggestions, and encouragement that I get from you all! Have I told you that I love you lately? I do! So what’d I think when I was asked to review a newsletter from Encouraging Moments? Sorry, but I really thought to myself, ugh…another email coming in…no time…can barely handle current email load…please...help…me. But as always I’m pleasantly surprised by this awesome ministry! Is it a ministry? If not, it should be! Last time I reviewed the True Treasures Book from … [Read more...]
