She can see lots of dads doing many different things but she can't find hers. I spy Mum The little boy searches for his mother and he spies all kinds of mums.

I want my hat back The bear's hat is gone and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals, one by one, whether they have seen it.

Are you sure Little Monster? Scary stories can be very scary! Yes, I'm sure.
Well, okay then. Here goes I want two birthdays The Little Princess wants to have two birthdays, just like the Queen, which means twice as many presents every year. When she realises how much fun two birthdays are, she decides she wants three, then four. The more birthdays she has, the less special they are.
But, the King has a solution up his sleeve. I went walking A repetitious, rhyming text in which the author is followed by a variety of animals all of a different colour.

If I was a banana A boy's eye-view of the everyday brings alive all the wonder and oddity of the world inside our own heads. If I were you When a father and his daughter imagine what it would be like to be one another, a crazy adventure begins. If sharks disappeared A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be big, like a whale, tiny, like a shrimp, and even scary, like a shark.
Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land. What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely? If you're happy and you know it Song title in book format with lovely illustrations and the animals as participants.

I am making some alphabet letters for my 2-year-old grandson. Can you give me an estimate of how many of each letter I need to make for him and how many of each number? He signs with his parents and is becoming more verbal every day.
Thank you for all the work you have accomplished to help parents learn to work with their children appropriately. My son taught himself to read at age 4 and my daughter taught herself to read at age 3. I had been reading to them from 6 months in age. Great pleasure for me and for them! Again, thank you for making so much information available. If you are eager to print and bind material for his parents to use, I would start with the alphabet books. They are a great fit for 2 year olds, and they are something he can use again and again.
Here are the links to my two sets:. This is wonderful. This year will be my fist time teaching first grade. I Know this will be very helpful for my students. My husband and I will be visiting the family for Christmas.

Sorry for posting twice! Hello Anna, I just wanted to say that I love your printable resources!
I just finished teaching summer school to a group of Kindergartners. I used a bunch of your resources: ABC Letter Tracing cards- the kids loved the pictures, the mini ABC flipbook was very helpful for reinforcing letter sounds during small group work, a rhyming worksheet that I used as an assessment at the end to see their growth with rhyming words that we reviewed with your rhyming path games. We also used the beginning letter path games, the cute fruits and vegetables books and the 3D sorting mats with pictures of real objects.
Your resources made it easy to plan productive activities that the students enjoyed using. Thank you for creating these resources and for sharing them as free resources. Your site will be a first stop for me when I need a new idea for teaching primary grade students.

Anna, Your website is an excellent source of knowledge and wisdom for both my kids. Dipa x. Good website, i like the content. Hi Anna, I recently bought almost every item that is offered in your shop. Anna, Thank you so very much for clarifying that. Hi Kelsey! Instead, students and teachers could share the name of the book that they're reading at the moment, and offer a sentence about it. It's a great way to share recommendations. Drop Everything And Read DEAR is used in classrooms across the country, and allows children to forget their normal tasks and drift away with a good book.
Webster explains: "The whole school has a set time in the school day where children read to themselves or an adult and they can choose from a wide variety of books. Ludgate says it is important that DEAR does not become a task: "Having 10 minutes of reading at the beginning of every lesson doesn't always work because it can become too ingrained.
Encouraging children to read for pleasure is about more than getting them to pick up a book; it's equally important for children to appreciate a good story. The older years in particular haven't been read to at home for so long that they absolutely love it. Comics, ebooks, short stories, online articles and magazines shouldn't be ignored.
For example, we had a whole term based on the Gruffalo in September. Now in the summer term children often recite it word for word and talk about other Julia Donaldson books they've read since. Here are some of the best ideas, initiatives and projects that teachers have developed to motivate children and help them develop a love for reading: Reading challenges Reading competitions come in many shapes and sizes, with the aim of spicing up literature and giving children an incentive to open a book.
Teacher involvement "Showing students that teachers of all subjects read books, not just the English teachers, is really important," says Ludgate. Join the Guardian Teacher Network for lesson resources, comment and job opportunities , direct to your inbox.
