Tall Tales Freebie - Listening Center QR Codes

Last night I was up late because I couldn't sleep, so I thought I'd do something productive. No, I did not work on the months and months of digital picture files...instead I created this QR listening code center on tall tales (I did think about needing to mop my floors for a nanosecond. That makes up for it right??)

Anyway, I'm so excited by my facebook response so far (and it isn't all my best friends either) that I decided to add this tall tales page to dropbox so you can download it for FREE only here on my blog.
I do have it listed in my stores for a price. But, You can click HERE for your free Tall Tales QR code Listening Center. Oh, and don't forget to swing by my new facebook page and "like" it to get updates and news about freebies and sales.

Story Books included are:

*Paul Bunyan by Steven Kellogg (read by yours truly on my YouTube page).

*Pecos Bill by Steven Kellogg (once again read by me).

*Johnny Appleseed by Steven Kellogg (me again)  :)

*Video Disney clip of John Henry (This is a short video by Disney- I think it is 8 mins long).

These books I FINALLY read and uploaded to YouTube. I used to have links to other people's stories, but then they'd delete them and then the code didn't work. So I made my own which will always be there. 

Who knew 4 codes would take me weeks. Acquire the needed books, buy a tripod for my camera, many takes to video me reading...and the worst. HOURS to upload to YouTube. Sometimes technology is a big pain in the tushy! But I'm so pleased they are done for you to enjoy...without all the work. :)

Summer Fun with Numbers & Letters

One way to reinforce letter and number skills is to use shaving cream. My kindergartener is still having trouble with number reversals and my preschooler needed practice writing his name and letters. We headed outside (to the shade and picnic table) and had some fun and secret learning time.

Note: I suggest having them in their swimsuits so you can hose them off when you are done.
