Draw, Write, Now Book 3 Printables

Draw, Write, Now Book 3 Printables 

I am continuing to plow through creating the Draw, Write, Now printables and recently got book 3 completed and have plans to complete the rest of the books, hopefully this summer!

Book 3 has some fun themes; Native Americans, North America, and Pilgrims. If you aren’t familiar with Draw, Write, Now, you can see the post I wrote last year when we gave a set away and learn more about them!

You may remember me sharing Book 1 last year, and the printables to go along.  These printables are exactly the same, two different options.  One for tracing, one for copying.  Both have the same drawing space.

Cats Unit Study ~ 1st Grade

My son, Krash, requested his summer learning to be focused on one of his favorites ~ CATS!  He collects little stuffed cats and has them with him almost all of the time!

Krash and his cats

Krash just completed 1st grade and since I know what I want him working on this summer, I created this unit study with my goals for him in mind.  I hope some of your cat loving kids might be able to use these printables also! 

{disclaimer: there are affiliate links in this post}Why Do Cats Meow

I created daily work for him based on the book, Why Do Cats Meow? which is at a good reading level for him to read aloud to me.  He will read the portion and we will work on the printable together each day. There are 17 different sections and printables to go along.

You can see some of the printables that go along with this book below.  Krash is learning cursive formation, which is why the tracing titles are on each page.  I added a print set at the end of the file for those of you who want to use these but have kids not working on cursive yet.  The little activities after the fill in the blanks and tracing are just quick ways to get in some skills.

I have the printables in a small 1/2” notebook for us to work through with the book.Cat Unit Study -5132


He is interested in different breeds of cats too, so I made him a set of 3-part cards to learn with. I got lots of my information from the Cats DK Pocket book.

I have these in our mini pocket chart on display, the kids love looking at them and especially giggling at the Cornish Rex and the Sphinx!Cat Unit Study -5128


Finally, I thought it would be fun to introduce him to classification by discussing the classification of a domestic cat.

We have lots of cat books also, some are pictured below and in the widget…Cat Unit Study -5130


We will also be using a few resources I found while searching online! I love this cat study from Sandra’s Savvy Teaching Tips. The Cats Lapbook from Homeschool Share is great!  I will also be pulling out our Cats Preschool Pack in case Ladybug wants to join Krash!

Lalaloopsy Printables

Lalaloopsy Printables

I have been asked a LOT if I would make Lalaloopsy printables and I have never done it because Ladybug showed no interest.  Recently that all changed.  I don’t even know where she saw them recently or what is different, but she thinks they are adorable now.  Not obsessed, which is a good thing, there’s way too many to buy…although I was pretty Strawberry Shortcake obsessed as a kid!  She asked if we could have a Lalaloopsy week and I knew it was time to create the printables for her and for many of you who wanted these!

There are bound to be typos, just let me know in the comments so I can fix things. These names are crazy, I had to go to Lalaloopsy school just to create the pack!

Enjoy!

I wrote about my views on using themes with young kids, and there are certainly a LOT of early childhood themes to choose from! When you begin planning, Pinterest and Google can be a bit overwhelming! I am creating this series to help you with your planning. I have gathered all FREE theme based printable packs {mainly early childhood focused, tots-1st grade} that I am aware of and sorted them by letter so you can browse through and get ideas all in one place! I did NOT include holiday based packs, simply because there are so many and they are pretty easy to find when holidays roll around.

I have included free printable theme packs from bloggers around the web including; Homeschool Creations, 2 Teaching Mommies, Spell Outloud, 3 Dinosaurs, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Me & Marie Learning, Ooopsey Daisy, All Our Days, Creative Learning Fun, Royal Baloo, 123 Homeschool 4 Me, Lawteedah, Our Little Monkeys, Creative Preschool Resources, Our Country Road, Homeschool Share, Gift of Curiosity, This Reading Mama, and Over the Big Moon. {if any of you ladies notice an error/edit please let me know!}

If the pack was created by another blogger, I listed their {blog name} in the brackets. If there aren’t any brackets, I made it!
