I CAN’T PRAY?”
“If you want your children to be smart, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be even smarter, read them more fairy tales!”

Other activities that I used were our I Can Read Sight Word Practice books and High Frequency Word Scrambled Sentences.
I have to tell you when I decided to do things a little differently with these kiddos, Kathy and I designed these little practice sheets so they could see the word, write the word, find the word in a phrase or sentence and then unscramble the letters in the word. We made a few pages to try them out with the students to see what they thought and if it was something they could and would do. As it turned out they loved them! (I think they liked the cut and paste of the scrambled words J). So we asked them what the name of the books should be and they suggested I Can Read. We added the name of the book and a few super heroes and ended up with a great activity for my little guys.

|For the High Frequency Word Scrambled Sentence game, they worked together to form the sentences and then wrote the completed sentence on their dry erase boards. This really reinforced the concept of recognizing the words used in context rather than flashcard drills.|

I truly feel like these games and activities made the difference for my kids.
We also have a newly listed paid “bundled” product that contains 8 individual products.
We believe that by using these activities, there is almost no way your kids will NOT learn these words too!
One last note….when one of my little girls was told she passed, she said, “Get out of town! You sure you’re not pulling my leg??!!” Soooooo cute.
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.
First, we would like to thank Christi Fultz at www.designbychristi.blogspot.com for designing such a cute and FUN site for us!!
We are two teachers (Kathy and Susan) trying to make learning fun. We will share our individual, unique teaching experiences together on this blog. We began team teaching together many years ago and have been working together ever since in Houston, Texas.
We have been second “mothers” to each other’s children. In addition, we each have black Toy poodles, Tootsie and Toodles!
Susan was absent from school last week and it was very heart-warming when her students heard she was not going to be there, they said, “Awwww, today won’t be any fun!” This just reinforced our plan to try our best to make learning fun.
In addition to our work with children, we are blessed to be able to share our ideas with Early Childhood teachers as we present workshops both locally and nationally. One workshop is based on Susan’s newest published book, Tunes for Teachers. (See below.)
As you can see, like most teachers, we are busy! Join us in our journey (by following us) as we share with you creative, FUN ideas, activities, pictures, quote for the day, articles, discussions and more.
