Freebie Friday! Daddy, Daddy, Who Do You See? {Printable Book}

Friday, February 24th, 2012 by by

This month, my daughter’s preschool is doing a Family theme. She goes to a Montessori school, and this is their alternative to celebrating Valentines Day. I personally think this is awesome, since my husband and I refer to Valentines Day as Hallmark Day. Ha. For children, it is a fun holiday where you get candy, small gifts, and have a party (I do love any excuse to have a party), but as adults I just think the holiday is silly! I think we should be telling the ones we love that we love them EVERY DAY!

Anyway, I like the whole family and the ones we love theme, so I decided to make a printable book to go along with the theme of family. Yet again, I used Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? as a template.

Daddy, Daddy, Who Do You See is a free printable book that targets family member vocabulary. In addition, it targets the concept of WHO and can be used to practice asking and answering “who” questions. Specifically, this book targets the following vocabulary:

Who, Look(ing), You, See, Daddy, Mommy, Grandpa, Grandma, Brother, Sister, Baby Brother, Baby Sister, Aunt and Uncle and Cousins.

Freebie Friday: Snowflake Gross Motor Learning

Friday, January 27th, 2012 by by

So this past week, I saw two similar activities that I really LOVED. The first one is from Roots of Simplicity. She created a great gross motor reading activity by writing words on snowflakes and taping them to the ground (check out her post for details). Then, Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum linked up a very similar activity using dinosaur footprints.

Why do I love these activities? For one, they get kids UP AND MOVING while learning. Not only is this great for winter, when we tend to spend more times indoors, but children really benefit from learning activities that are multisensory. These activities can be adapted and tailored to target ALL kinds of objectives! Think about it… You can target letters, numbers, words, shapes, prepositions, basic concepts, irregular verbs, answering or asking WH questions…the possibilities are endless.

I decided to make my own set of snowflakes with letters and numbers on them, since my daughter is working on letter and number ID.

Printable Home Organization Routines: Giveway

Monday, July 19th, 2010 by by

I’m working on some projects throughout my house to make it easier on J– and to help me settle into more of a routine. I’m not a huge routine person, but they do help ensure things get done and J seems to relax more under them.

This is a print design to hang on your fridge (or bulletin board or whatever) that is simply a reminder of what needs to be done and the structure of the day. The one pictured here is two sided- one side is more feminine for my routine and the other side is more masculine for J’s routine. The winner of the giveway wins a fully customizable two sided routine in the design shown. This comes printed on quality cardstock. I like to slip mine into a sheet protector up on the fridge.
