There is an optional second page with the prompt of “Draw a picture of yourself reading.” Encourage your students to complete as many boxes as they can and return it after winter break so they can share everything they were up to. If they need an incentive, go for it; and, if you’re looking for personalization, message me! Your librarian, Katelyn Martens-Rodriguez Per usual, this resource is also available on TeachersPayTeachers and please let me know how it went over!

At-Home Activities for Families with Preschoolers

Now that I’ve got two sets of activities ready to go, I’m ready to tell you about them! I’ve been working with a preschool teacher to come up with fun, age-appropriate activities to accompany her weekly newsletters. She wanted something that was only one page so it could be copied onto the back of her one-page newsletter. The first set includes 14 activities and the second includes 12 activities. This means that downloading both will give you a total of 26 activities to send home with your students (if you’re in a school), patrons (if you’re in a library), or children if you’ll be using these at home yourself. The activities provide a platform to count, talk, write, draw, color, name, give, and story-tell together. My organizational advice… print them all and keep them in a binder (inside those clear sheet protectors). Stick a post-it onto the front of the protector to write the date it was used.
