Free Learning Printable: The Letter “R”

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing free learning printables for the letter “R”. I can assure you that I’m just not randomly choosing a letter each week for my toddler to focus on and learn. There is a method to my madness. I hope that you will enjoy this printable with your little learner. Can I give you my suggestion? Make it fun! There is much more that can be done with this printable besides just cutting out the letter “R” and allowing your child to paste it.20190829_114949~2.jpg

You can have your child say the name of each picture first. Have them say or repeat the letters in each word. Have them count the number of letter “R”‘s that they have in front of them and have them to name other words that either begin with the letter “R” or has “R” in them. If you do decide to do this make sure that you have a piece of paper or whiteboard so that you can write down what they say and allow them to visually see it in front of them. Visual learning is very beneficial for young learners. You can download it to print here. 20190830_155504_0000.png

One thing that was extremely funny to me when Mariyah and I did this activity was what she called the radio. I realize that most children today have no clue of what radios actually looks like. We typically don’t have them in our homes as much as we did when I was growing up, well at least not this boombox. She called it a radio thing pod. I figure she knew it was a radio because of the speakers. They resemble the small radio that we use for audio read-along books at home. Please enjoy this free printable and feel free to share it with other parents, Pin it on Pinterest, and most importantly have fun!



“If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” Number Recognition and Counting Activity

One of my daughter’s favorite books for me to read to her is “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”. I was really happy to see the animated series on Amazon Prime because it brings the book to life. The illustrations are so beautiful and I find myself singing the song when we begin reading the book. As always I have to find a way to mix in a little learning time during our days and it’s always great when there is a matching storybook to any lesson that you intend to teach to a preschooler.

_If You Give A Mouse A Cookie_ A Number Recognition and Counting Activity

Number recognition and counting is something that we try to include in everyday activities in our lives.  On the 4th of July, we went to watch the fireworks at our city’s amphitheater and even there I noticed my husband and my daughter counting the numbers on the chairs.If You Give a Mouse A Cookie She thought it was fun, but I’m sure she would have told me, “not now momma!” I hope that you and your little learner will enjoy this activity that I created just for our favorite story “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” It’s free to print. Be sure to share it with your child’s PreK teacher and your mom friends.

Did you know that a parent is their child’s first Teacher in life?  As a former Teacher and PreK advocate, I believe that learning begins in our home. I know that not all parents are sure about where they should actually begin with home learning activities for their little ones. I’ve decided to add a new edition to the Mommy 365 blog. A “Home Learning” category will feature activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers. These weekly posts will likely remain free at no cost to you and will sometimes include printables. If you decide to use them you are likely to only need inexpensive school supplies such as glue, crayons, markers, scissors, and construction paper. Today, I’m sharing a learning activity that will help your toddler or preschooler begin to identify circles and squares. My daughter and I have been working on circles and squares for a few days. We used these color felt shapes
