Next, you’ll need to be sure that your kids are truly engaging with, comprehending, and thinking critically about their texts, since, well, that’s what strong readers do.

Same Old Eggs, New Twist Easter has come and gone and after a wonderful celebration with family and friends, I am left storing my baby chicks and tucking away my Easter books until next year. But what about those stupid plastic eggs? As far as I know, you can’t recycle them with your empty milk jugs and diaper boxes. Well, you turn to one of my favorite blogs with the brightest ideas for all things parenting and fun. Well, here is my favorite idea which led to one wildly successful morning activity with Jax. Materials: plastic eggs alphabet stickers, upper and lower case Directions: Take 26 plastic eggs and break them apart. Break them up, scatter them on the ground, and have your preschooler match them up! Instant educational fun! Things To Consider: How old is your preschooler?

Word Warm-ups Educational Games and Resources | Fuel the Brain The Inspired Apple: Let's Get Poppin' with Adjectives {First Grade Adjective Activity} First of all, y'all are crackin' me right up with all the pencil commentary. I'm just glad I'm not alone! Thanks for commiserating ;) Secondly, let's discuss teaching my kididdles adjectives. I decided we needed something a little more substantial than the totally un-fun and completely un-engaging pencil-and-paper activities in my reading series (which is Treasures, btw). Don't get me wrong, I really like some things about our reading series, but worksheets alone aren't going to teach my pumpkins about descriptive words. They really need concrete experiences to learn - especially at six- and seven-years-old. Insert the old standby - popcorn. {And, btw, it was oh-so-cool to use an air-popper to pop it! After encouraging them to truly experience the popcorn - it's smell, texture, appearance, and taste - we met to discuss the many adjectives that could describe this yummy afternoon treat. Afterwards, of course, we like totally had to do a fun little art project. TGtomorrowIF!!!!!
