Pot of colorful, shape, and sight word coins.

On March 17th we celebrate Leprechaun Day. In which every year the night before my daughters make their own leprechaun boxes that they leave out for leprechauns to stop by and have a place to sleep for the night. As a thank you for their hotel accommodations the leprechauns leave a surprise in the boxes that my daughters excitedly open on March 17th.

To go along with their surprises my daughters and I made pots out of paper towel rolls to be filled of gold. As a fun learning treat I made colorful coins, coins with shapes on them, and blank gold coins to write sight words on. As a fun way to cover several of the basic skills we’re working on. I laminated the coins for durability and left the sight word ones blank that way I could erase and write different words to practice.

Butterfly theme coloring pages for early readers.

I often make coloring pages with simple sentences for early readers to color with my children over the weekends as a way to get my oldest (age 6) to read in a fun relaxed way. I keep the coloring pages simple to allow my daughters space to draw in their own images if they choose to do so. Adding in a chance for their creativity to shine through. On the coloring pages I bold sight words as a way to remind my daughter those words are best to memorize rather than use sounding out techniques on. She often gets confused and since she is still learning the basics of reading I use the bold font as an extra cue.

Both my daughters enjoy looking at butterflies outside therefore I decided to make butterfly theme coloring pages.
