The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit
I love this sweet Beatrix Potter tale for the youngest listeners. It is short and simple, perfect for copywork! There are three versions for three levels of writers. The first is a beginning version, with the words over each line, like a handwriting book. The second has the words all at the top of the lines, for more advanced writers. The last version can be used by print or cursive writers who can do copywork from a separate text. The word are on a separate slip of paper so only the child's writing appears in the story. Some of the pictures are black and white for coloring.
Long letter 'o' and 'oo' Game
Word Family Games
This is a game I made with pockets and word cards. I colored the vowels blue for emphasis, but the could also be printed in black and white. I have pockets for three sounds- 'oo' as in 'zoo', 'oo' as in 'hook' and 'o' as in 'toe'.
Word Family Games
These word family games are organized by vowel. The children read each word and then find a matching picture card. You can laminate them for durability. Enjoy! :)
Beatrix Potter Copywork
I have two versions of "The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit." I made an older one for showing off writing skills, and a younger one similar to a handwriting book. Enjoy!
I made these for my kids to supplement their math. We have used them for several years. They really helped them learn about dates and time, along with extra facts practice everyday. The grade levels are really subjective and they were designed to fill specific needs each child had at that point. I worked with the kids on each page, and they really aren't made to be completely independent.
Basic Instructions: Pick a number. Give the child the date, the daily number, a time, and a temperature. I wrote it all on our dry erase board. I didn't always use the time and temperature as it was similar day after day.
Basic Instructions: Pick a number. Give the child the date, and the daily number. I sometimes wrote out the larger additions and subtractions so they could see them stacked up. Write out the number so they can spell it as well.
1st/ 2nd Grade
Basic Instructions: Pick a number. Give the child the date, the daily number, a time, and a temperature. We practiced counting by numbers we had already learned using rhythms or tunes. The line to the left of the Daily Number box is for writing the number out. For the daily problem I gave them an addition fact (I.E. 4+5) and they wrote out the whole fact family. (4+5, 5+4, 9-4, 9-5) The number line was used to show one of the four facts. They filled in the calendar, just writing the month and finding the correct box for that day's date and writing it. They didn't fill in the whole calendar each day.
2nd/ 3rd Grade
Basic Instructions: Give the child the date, the daily number, a time, and a temperature. The timeline can be filled in by the child using variations (hundreds, tens, etc.) or by the teacher leaving blanks for the child to fill in or numbers to find. The daily problem is the same as the addition/subtraction version. It is used for one fact family (I.E. 3x4, 4x3, 12/3, 12/4). The rounding is done with the daily number which should be large by now (in the hundreds or thousands). They round the number to the nearest ten and hundred, and then add the two. The month lines were used to learn the order of the months. They filled in three at a time until they memorized the year. The word balloon is there because my daughter asked for something to draw a picture in. ;) The clocks were done to find elapsed time. Sometimes I filled in both clocks, sometimes one clock and the "later" line. I wrote digital time or filled in the hands. Lots of variations.
