Letter Mazes A-Z ~ Subscriber Freebie

I have a new Subscriber Freebie for all of you who subscribe to the blog {details are below if you are unclear of what it means to subscribe or how to subscribe}.  I have been working on the individual Letter Mazes for quite some time now and am thrilled to say that they are all finished!

 Letter Mazes Bundle

I even made some edits thanks to a few tips from a few of you who are using them.  I will continue to offer the individual files for FREE here, but will be selling the bundle of all letters A-Z in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop soon.  BUT, you can get it for FREE through May 31, 2012 if you are a blog subscriber!

Not sure what to do with these?  Here are a few ideas for you in this post about the letter mazes!IMG_6655

The Letter Mazes A-Z Bundle will only be offered for free with a special link at the bottom of the daily 1+1+1=1 email or RSS feed every day through May 31, 2012.  It won’t be anywhere else right now!  Eventually the set will be for sale, so get it for free now while you can!

If you don’t subscribe yet, just click here for email and then be sure to confirm your email address once you get the initial email from Feedburner {be sure to check your spam folders if you can’t find the email}.  If you’d rather read in an RSS reader like Google Reader, just click here!  If you have any questions, just leave me a comment!  I am grateful for all of you who follow here regularly and hope this freebie blesses you!

Alphabet Printables & More

Alphabet Ideas

As my site grows, I realize it becomes more difficult to navigate.  I promise I do my best to keep it organized, but it is so hard!  In addition to my theme posts, I am putting together 5 basic posts: ABC Printables {this one}, 123 Printables, Colors Printables, Shape Printables, and Bible Printables.  My goal is to link everything I can think of that is on my site under those categories.  I may even miss something of my own, let me know if I do!

Let’s Trace Numbers ~ Newsletter Subscriber Freebie

Let’s Trace Numbers was created after several readers asked me to make a set to match my Letter Tracing Bundle.

Let's Trace Numbers Freebie

This set includes worksheet tracers for numbers 1-10 and flashcard tracers for 1-20, all using the green dot, red star method I used on the letter tracing set.

This set is available to my Newsletter Subscribers for FREE.

If you are already subscribed to my newsletter, you should have an email that has the subject “Subscriber Freebies from 1+1+1=1″  in case you need to search your email folders.

Not subscribed to the newsletter yet {which is not the same as the blog feed RSS email, read more here}, you can subscribe here.  Be sure to confirm your email subscription or the newsletters won’t come!

Encouraging Reluctant Readers

Encouragine Reluctant Readers

Both of my boys are reluctant readers

PacMan loved to be read to, but when he was learning to read he didn’t like reading by himself as much as I wished he would.  He still does not choose reading during his free time.  Thankfully he reads and comprehends well, I just wish he loved it.

Krash, who is now learning to read, is just too busy!  He is a mover and I think he would read more if he could do cartwheels while reading.  He enjoys books and reading way more than PacMan, I just need him to sit down and hold still long enough to read!

I want him reading aloud more, especially during this crucial stage of reading development. To encourage him to do so, I created a few motivational charts and a special book basket for him.image

Right now we are using the “Can You Read 10 Books?” chart, but I made a 5, 10, and 20 version.  He earns a tiny prize when he completes his 10 books {last time it was BatMan stickers}.  I am requiring him to read to me so I can listen myself and work with him.  IMG_5815

I selected books for the basket based on where he is at right now, some are a bit easier and some more challenging, I let him choose.  Included are Bob Books, Sight Word Readers, Brand New Readers, and our Open Court book set that was donated to us from a school.

It’s especially fun when Stella joins us!IMG_5821
