Father's Day

Image
I know it's two days before Father's Day, but oh well.  At least it's not after father's day.  So, here's a simple coloring page, and a card.  The card fits on one page, just fold it in fourths, and you've got a card for your kids to color and give to their dads.  Enjoy!

Two Little Black Birds

Two little black birds sitting on a hill. One named Jack, one named Jill. Fly away, Jack!  Fly Away, Jill! Come back, Jack!  Come back, Jill!

I guess this is just wishful thinking....

Elephants on a Spider's Web

The Elephants on a Spider's Web
One elephant went out to play upon a spider's web one day. He had such enormous fun, that he called for another elephant to come!
Two elephants went out to play upon a spider's web one day. They had such enormous fun that they called for another elephant to come!
Three elephants went out to play upon a spider's web one day. They had such enormous fun that they called for another elephant to come!
Four elephants went out to play upon a spider's web one day. They had such enormous fun that they called for another elephant to come!
Five elephants went out to play upon a spider's web one day. But sad to say the web gave way, and that was the end of a perfect day!

P.S. If you're using these on a felt board, you can use yarn for a cooler spider's web.

Reading Charts

Image
Getting my daughter to read books with me is so not an issue.  Getting her to try reading on her own, however, is.  She just thinks it's too hard to even try.  I asked a homeschooling lady I know with brilliant kids what I can do, and she told me to try reading charts.  She said that the kids obviously just recite the book from memory, but if they're pointing to the words and saying them, it will get easier and easier for them to learn.  So, we tried it once and it was awesome.  My little girl got a trip to the aquarium and learned to read a bunch of little words.  Rewards for both of us :)  Anyway, I thought I'd share some reading charts with you.  So bust out your crayons, stickers, and books and get reading

5 Little Monkeys

Image
I always grew up with 10 little monkeys, but I've come to find out that it's really hard to fit 10 little monkeys on a bed....maybe that's why they fell off.  Oh well, if you're really broken up about it, just print it off twice :) Enjoy!
