The Selfish Crocodile ~ Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

The Selfish Crocodile Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables


Our next Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack is ready!  I have been busy developing behind the scenes and am excited to share our next unit with you.

A few have asked if I am going in the order the books are listed here on the blog, and the answer is NO.  I am going in random order and that list is not set in stone.  On the website here, at the bottom, I will share the next 2 books I am working on so you’ll have a bit of notice in case you need it.

The Selfish Crocodile is a favorite book of Ladybug’s.  This is a longer book with a great storyline about treating others nicely.  In the beginning the crocodile is selfish and grouchy but then a little mouse helps him and in the end he is friendly with the other animals.  I love this one as much as she does!


In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

Lesson Plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose ordinal numbers, ordering by size, basic fractions, and greater/less than.

Ordinal NumbersOrdering by SizeBasic FractionsGreater or Less

Lots of literacy activities; Letter C sound,  sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and color word work.

For our Science focus, children will create a river scene, featuring photos of real animals! There’s also a set of 3 part animal cards to explore photos of different animals in the story.

Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter A

RLRS Letter A Philippians 2 5 Bible Verse Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter A are available to download for free!  This set is based on Philippians 2:5, “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”  A is for ATTITUDE!  This sure is a lesson I need right along with the children I teach!  Having a Christ-like attitude is a daily struggle for me personally.

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it. 

I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter E right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter A. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me. Good thing she really likes it!

Here’s a peek at our home work {most of these printables are in the bundle version}.

Here she was coloring the coloring page, she LOVES to color.  She wanted to copy the poster graphic so you can see it sitting beside her.

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole.

Here’s an Instagram video I shared of her when she was working on this activity, singing as she worked!

She also enjoyed her verse bracelet at home.  She got one when we did it in Children’s Church awhile back too.  She and the other kids LOVE the bracelets! Yes, sometimes she wears it up on her big muscle.

Here’s a shot of how we did the letter page at church, I have all of the kids sign it on the day they are there! I just love all of their little signatures.

We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram.  Here is the start of our home banner!

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter A in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Are You Sleeping?

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

Raising Lil Rock Stars Through the Bible A-Z ~ Introduction

Raising Lil' Rock Stars Through the Bible A to Z

I am beyond excited to share my latest “baby” with you.  Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Through the Bible A-Z has been in development for about 2 years now as I waited for God to guide the timing. It has been tons of work behind the scenes, and much prayer and planning has gone into this. Since I wrote the stories, I have even had my husband on board for Biblical editing help too!  My dear friend Shannon also assisted me.

I would like to introduce you to a brand new Bible based early childhood program, Raising Lil’ Rock Stars A-ZYup, similar name, because I believe strongly in the Rock Star vision and I cling to it when developing Biblical resources for kids.

Years ago I created RRSP and RRSK and have always wanted to develop a new program with new graphics, new verses, new stories {written by me}, a group version {to be used in Sunday School, Children’s Church, Co-Op} and also the ability to be used at home.

I will be releasing the FREE home based units over time, as I share them on my blog, but wanted to get the entire bundle finished so those of you who want it don’t have to wait! The first free unit comes out tomorrow!

I have images and descriptions on the info pages, you can scroll through and see what is included.  You can see everything included in the Home Bundle here.  See the Group Bundle here.  Here’s a peek…

Frozen Printables ~ Q-Tip Painting

Frozen Printables Q-Tip Painting_thumb[3]

We were late to jump on the Frozen train since my daughter didn’t like it when she first saw it in the theater.  Then we got the DVD and it all changed. I was going to make an entire Frozen printables pack but decided to just make additions to the packs I have already seen out there. First I made some Q-Tip Printables. There may be more Frozen printables coming, but no guarantees! If there’s a specific printable you have seen me make that you’d love with a Frozen theme, leave me a comment!


WHY use Q-Tip Painting Printables?

The big answer is fine motor skills! If you notice how we focus on not only the tiny dots, but also using small items in painting or adding to the dots. All of this works on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

The letter identification is a secondary bonus!

See ideas for using these here!
