S is for Seuss! {Mommy School Unit}

It's time for a new Mommy School Packet!

And it's a good one!

Download is available at the end of the post.

I have always loved Dr. Seuss books!  I have collected so many through the years. I have always known that I wanted to do a Dr. Seuss-themed Mommy School unit. I'm planning to spend the next 2-3 weeks teaching all about Dr. Seuss books!  And with The Lorax movie coming out, I think a mommy/son date to the movies will be in order!

This packet came along with a dilemma.  Each time I create a new packet, I obtain specific permission to use the graphics or clip art.  There are many companies such as DJ Inkers and My Grafico that have very generous terms of use when it comes to using their graphics for educational use.  I have spoken with the owners of these companies to obtain specific permission.  However, finding Dr. Seuss-specific clip art that I could share with you was a bit tricky.  Instead, I opted to offer a wealth of ideas centered on Dr. Seuss books with some helpful templates and patterns that I created myself.   I hope you understand!

But not to worry!  There are still 72 pages of fabulous ideas, all centered on some of my favorite Dr. Seuss Books!

Here are some of the concepts covered:

Letter of the Week: S

Number of the Week:  3

Shape of the Week: Diamond

Theme of the Week:  Dr. Seuss

Song of the Week:  Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Here are just a few sneak peeks:

Goldfish graphing to go along with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

Green eggs and ham ABC's to go along with Green Eggs and Ham.

Alphabet stamping activity to go along with Dr. Seuss's ABC.

And of course there are many more surprises in there!

W is for Winter {Mommy School}

The first Mommy School packet of 2012 is here!

Download is available at the end of this post.

 

After the holidays, I needed something to look forward to.  A new project.  And so did Little Man!  So I decided to take advantage of the frosty weather to create a winter Mommy School packet!  I was able to complete this packet thanks to my husband!  Sweet Mr. Oopsey Daisy gave me two full days (and I mean full days!) to bust this packet out.

This unit was especially fun for me to put together because I created my own "Magical Mitten Day" with my first graders each January.  I had many happy memories sorting through my teaching files and creating a packet ready for preschoolers!  If you live somewhere where there is absolutely no snow (hello, Arizona!), then no worries.  There are tons of ideas for playing with pretend snow!  This might be a great time to teach about the four seasons.

Here are some of the concepts covered:

Letter of the Week: W

Number of the Week  2

Color of the Week: White

Theme of the Week: Winter

Song of the Week:  Once There Was a Snowman

And of course there are pages and pages of ideas that I can’t wait to do with Little Man including games, literacy activities, math, science, flannel board stories, arts/crafts, and snacks/recipes!

Here are a few sneak peeks:

This snowman sequencing will be a fun way to put events in order.

Count the number of mittens in every box!

ABC Snowman chant.  This packet is bursting with poems, songs, and games!

ABC Mittens for identifying letters

Which one is different? activity.

"The Snowey Pokey" sung to the tune of "The Hokey Pokey."  Clever!

"W "writing practice and coloring pages.

Winter Snow Walk scavenger hunt.

Roll a Snowman game!

A is for Apples Wrap Up

We finished up our A is for Apples Mommy School unit just in time for Halloween.  Even though we did this same unit last year, we added so much more this year.  I am such a Mom... I am so amazed at all the new things Little Man can do.  I love how Little Man loves to learn.  Every day when he wakes up from his nap, he will march down the stairs and announce, "Let's do Mommy School!" And that, my friends, makes all the work worthwhile!

 

Here are just a few of our favorite crafts and projects:

We also bobbed for apples

Did a bit of fingerpainting - for the very first time!

Another first!  Little Man ate his first caramel apple.

We created our own sidewalk chalkboard apple tree

We learned a lot about Johnny Appleseed

And did a little more eating!  This time, we munched on apple Oreo pops!

We cut out our own apples out of apple pie-scented playdough!

Painted our own paper plate apple pie using red paint, cinnamon, and nutmeg!

Made apple "muffins"

(I made the real deal while Little Man made his own version!)

Cooked up our own crockpot applesauce

You can download your own A is for Apples Mommy School packet here.

Now hopefully a new unit will magically create itself very soon! :)

Have a happy weekend!

A is for Apples {Massive Packet!}

It's Mommy School time! 

Hip hip hooray!! 

Download available at the end of this post.

I am thrilled to be finished with this massive Mommy School unit!  And now I can't wait to get started with all kinds of Apple fun here at home!  Right now is the perfect time to study apples.  Just this week, we are canning our own fresh applesauce!

You may remember that A is for Apples was one of my very first Mommy School units.  However, I didn't create all of my ideas in packet format.  Because it is one of my all-time favorite units, I wanted to re-visit it again this year!  My format for Mommy School has kind of evolved, so I wanted to organize it a little better this year.

 

Here is a little peek at what's inside:

Letter of the Week:  A

Number of the Week:  1

(I am only working on numbers 1-10 right now, so we are starting back over at 1 with this packet!)

Color of the Week:  Red

Song of the Week:  Apples and Bananas

Theme of the Week:  Apples

 

And of course there are many more fun ideas that I can't wait to do with Little Man including games, literacy activities, math, science, flannel board stories, arts/crafts, and recipes!

And here are a couple of sneak previews...

There are TONS of yummy apple recipes!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!  I used this Apple Pickin' Kit to create these templates.

I is for Insects Wrap Up

We've gone a little buggy lately! 

We have had SO much fun with our I is for Insects Mommy School unit!  We have actually spent an entire month having all sorts of fun with bugs, bugs, bugs!  Before we started this unit, Little Man was pretty squeamish when it came to insects.  Now he's at least a little more friendly with these creepy crawlies!

Using a little spray adhesive and felt (plus some very necessary antennae!), we had fun dressing up as some of our favorite bugs...

Here are just a few of our favorite crafts and projects...

We also did a lot of eating [Read more...]

I is for Insects {Mommy School}

Something about back-to-school time renews my own excitement for Mommy School!  After a lazy summer, I have decided to really fire up my engines and get our Mommy School going!

Here's the latest and greatest printable Mommy School packet...

This packet is MASSIVE.  We're talking a whopping 80 pages!

I have been sleeping and breathing BUGS for the last week.  It's kind of funny because Little Man has always been a little squeemish when it comes to creepy crawlies.  But I'm determined that by the end of this unit, he'll like at least a few bugs!

Are you curious what's inside??

Letter of the Week:  I

Number of the Week:  10

Color of the Week:  Black

Song of the Week:  I'm Bringing Home My Baby Bumblebee

Theme of the Week:  Insects

 

I am not giving away all my secrets with this packet, but here are just a few teasers (All downloads are available at the end of the post):

These are ALWAYS one of our favorites... bug action cards!  We'll be practicing our best "buggy" moves!

"Count the stripes on the bees" activity.

A little ladybug math... match the numeral with the correct number of ladybug dots.

"I is for..." coloring pages/letter tracing.

And there is much MUCH more!

The arts and crafts section of this packet is enormous.  And I found some extraordinary songs and fingerplays!

I realize that summer is a busy, hectic time.  To be honest, I haven't kept up my Mommy School routine.  We are having way too much fun living it up this summer!  But I have been wanting to do some Mommy School for the Fourth of July to teach Little Man about our great nation.  Yes, it's a bit late... but I consider the entire month of July to be a patriotic time!  So hopefully some of you are in the same boat and can still use this packet!  (If not, pack it away for next year!)
