It's National Pencil Day!! (FREEBIE)

What am I doing at 1am in the morning?  Creating pencils flags for National Pencil Day...of course!  Okay, I will be totally honest...I didn't know it was pencil day either!  However, I got a FUN surprise in the mail today from Dixon Ticonderoga...the people who make pencils and so much more!  I am going to save that for another post:)

In honor of National Pencil Day, I created some encouraging pencil flags for your kiddos!  When I was teaching, I tried to write a few notes each week to a couple of kids in the class as a way to encourage them.  I wish I would have thought of creating some pencil flags:)

A Few Fun Pencil Facts:
1.  A single pencil can write 45,000 words or draw a line that is 35 miles long!
2.  A pencil can write in water.
3.  Manufactures painted the first pencils in yellow because the color was associated with royalty and honor.

I hope you enjoy these:)  Click on the picture to get your freebie!


Directions:  Cut out each flag, fold over the end of a pencil and glue together.

Time Out Tuesday: Self Control

Join Tamara and I in our last study and challenge to Transform Your Teaching and Parenting!  We have been blessed.  We have been challenged.  We have been changed.


These last 7 weeks have been an amazing journey through the Fruit of the Spirit!  We have opened up our hearts and shared our thoughts on how the Fruits of the Spirit CAN change us and make into the BEST teacher and/or the BEST parent that we have been designed to be!

Self-control...that little word can make all the difference!  For this very last radio show, Tamara eloquently discusses how self-control ties into all of the all of the attributes of the Fruit of the Spirit.  You don't want to miss this episode on self-control and how MUCH we need this in our teaching and parenting!

Click {HERE} to listen to self-control or use the widget on the right side bar.

If you missed any of the other radio shows, just use the click on the episode you need and join us in our 7 Week Challenge to Transform Your Teaching and Parenting!

We found this adorable poster from Mrs. Mabe at Fabulous Firsties.  Be sure to hop on over to her blog to get your free download on the Fruit of the Spirit and to read her post!
Thanks for listening! We hope that you have been encouraged and transformed these last 7 weeks!

Toddler Tasks Week 6

We are having such fun with our toddler tasks and Sophia really enjoys doing "school".   Here are some of the activities that we did this week...
(Sophia 2 1/2 years old)

Letter Identification and Letter Formation:
We started by dot painting letters.  I just drew an outline of some letters and let her "decorate" them.  She was really proud of her work and wanted Daddy to see what she did for "school."

 Fine Motor Skills:
We really enjoyed our Easter Fun Preschool printable pack from Our Little Monkeys.
We did a little cutting....

Color Identification and Object Discrimination (finding the difference):
Color sorting and finding the difference...

Letter Identification with different fonts:
 Letter sorting...

Fine Motor Skills and Color Identification:
We played several games this week, but The Sneaky Squirrel was one of her favorites!  I like the squirrel "tongs" that come with the game because they really help to build up those fine motor skills as she pinches them together to grab a colored acorn.

ABC Order:
We did a little ABC Dot-to-Dot and she colored the picture.  

Sorting, Color Identification and fine Motor Skills:
She loves to play with her counting bears, but she insists on doing them in her highchair, which she doesn't use anymore.  Whatever:)  

We used a pair of tongs to pick up the bears, which is also good for building up those hand muscles needed for writing.

Patterns:
Worked on patterns a little...

Painting:
Since we released 1,500 ladybugs this week, we decided to paint a ladybug on the art easel.  I drew a ladybug with upper and lower case letters.  The uppercase letters were supposed to be red, but I had to change it to yellow since we ran out of red paint. Flexibility:)

Color Mixing/ Experimenting:
Sophia learned that yellow and blue make green!  Such a fun way to learn your colors and how they change and work together.
 She added a few more colors and this was the final master piece!
 Finger Print Painting:
I LOVE these finger ink paints and so do the girls.   I picked these up at Lakeshore along with a cute book that helps you create fingerprint animals and scenes.

This is a VERY bad drawing of a tree (by me) and cutely decorated by Sophia:)

Color Matching and Color Discrimination:
I used markers to draw color coded circles on a paper.  Sophia used her paint set to match the colors, which also included light and dark.


Drawing:
I taped a piece of paper to the floor and let her draw a picture.  In case you can't tell, this is a picture of our family and Daddy's name:)


That wraps up this week of Toddler Tasks!  This post goes to show you that you can do so many activities without spending a lot of money or printing off a ton of pages....although I like printing pages:)
