Fun new books for kids!

February 28, 2012 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: worksheets

I have been working many long hours to finish my latest 2 books. The first book is called “This Kid’s Life – France.”


This Kid’s Life is a booklet that focuses on how a child lives daily life in a different country, compared to how people live in North America. This particular book tracks the life of a boy named Louis who lives in the country of France.

Included:
1. A pre-test to see what your students know about France
2. A letter from Louis that describes his life in France
3. Facts about France and discussion questions
4. Word Search Puzzle
5. Secret Code Puzzle
6. Poisson d’Avril (Fish of April) Lesson and Activity
7. Make Your Own Paper Beret
8. Design Your Own Pastry
9. Postcard Writing Activity
10. If I had Wednesdays off from school…Writing Activity
11. Basic French Phrases
12. Crossword Puzzle for Basic French Phrases

You can order this ebook from here.

Also, I have a great new math book that your kids will surely enjoy. It’s called Math Puzzles – Volume 1.

Are your students bored of doing the same old math problems? Try this book, filled with 6 different types of math puzzles.

Math Stories – Math Stories combine reading and mathematics in a fun and silly way! Until you solve the math problems, you’ll never know how the story goes. (division and multiplication)

Draw the Fraction – Use your imagination and draw a picture representation of the fractions you encounter at home, at school or outside.

Picture Math – Draw a picture using equal parts of your imagination and math. (division)

Math Grid Puzzles – Draw different items onto a grid depending on the answers to the math problems. (division and multiplication)

Math Number Search – Solve some addition and subtraction problems, then search for them in a grid full of numbers.

All graphics are originals and designed by myself.

You can buy this book here.

Valentine’s Day is almost here!

February 09, 2012 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: worksheets

I created several Valentine’s Day lessons that you can check out at my store on Teachers Pay Teachers. One that I am especially proud of is Valentine’s Day Around the World:

There are 28 pages filled with activities for your students. My children enjoyed learning about how other countries in the world celebrated Valentine’s Day. They really loved the page on Korea since Korea has a ‘love-type’ day on the 14th of every month. They thought that was really neat.

With this booklet your class will visit six countries: Japan, China, Germany, Italy, Denmark and, as I stated before, my children’s favorite: Korea. Your students can keep track of their travels with their own passports, with flags that they can paste inside for each country that they “visit”. After each country has been studied, students can complete an activity sheet for that country. The unit concludes with a Valentine’s Day card glyph and a bar graph to chart the class’s results.

You can even do what we did for our Valentine’s Day card glyphs. Instead of them giving them to a parent or loved one, we sent them to a Ronald McDonald’s House with the hope that the families there will get a little smile from receiving the cards. If you don’t have a Ronald McDonald’s House near you, you can send your cards to a children’s hospital or you can leave me a comment and I can give you the address of a Ronald McDonald’s House that is accepting Valentine’s Day Cards in North Carolina, where we are sending our cards.

If you’d like to purchase this product you can do so at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
