My Cats Nick and Nora ~ Kindergarten Literature Unit with Printables

My Cats Nick and Nora Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printables



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

My Cats Nick and Nora is a favorite book of Ladybug’s.  She LOVES cats, which is the main reason she loves this book. If you have a child who loves cats, this unit might be a fun one for you.


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 My Cats Nick and Nora

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose graphing favorite pets, graphing balloon colors, and identifying coins.

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!

Pizza Coloring Printables

The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

I just added a new Pizza Coloring set! This set is a result of my daughter asking me where the pizza coloring pages were when we were working on our “Hi! Pizza Man” Kindergarten literature unit

A Reading Log Printable for My Bookworm

Free Printable Reading Log



My son Krash has become a little bookworm. It developed out of nowhere, as he has NOT been much of a reader until now. He enjoys being read to, but wasn’t like Ladybug who always has books near her and will sit and read for hours.

In the past 5 months or so, something has clicked and unlocked this side of him.  When he read his first chapter book for fun, and enjoyed it, the fire was lit inside of him!  The first chapter book her read was a book I was sent many years ago as a sample copy from Scholastic, Looniverse. It sat on my shelf for years since it was not at a level for any of my kids but then suddenly I remembered it and pulled it out for him.  It was perfect for him…just enough pictures and words, a funny story line and characters he loved. We went on to buy the other 3 books in the series and he read them all quickly, the last one arrived one morning and he had it finished that night!

Chapter Books for 2nd Grade Boys

I soon realized I couldn’t afford to buy his books so we hit the library together.  He chose the A-Z Mystery series and picked out 4 he liked.  He has read 2 of those 4 and loves them.  Thankfully we have many more in the series for him and our library has them all!

Chapter Books for 2nd Grade Boys

 

I realized too late that we should have had a reading log for him all this time, but honestly his reading enthusiasm caught me so off guard, I wasn’t prepared!  I decided to change that and whipped up a quick reading log printable for him including what we wanted on it.  The title, number of pages, date started and completed,and a place for him to rate the book 1-10.
