Calling all teachers

Hi friends. For those of you who are teachers, please read the review I've posted below done by www.teachersfirst.com. I am certainly grateful for this!! It makes all of the hard work worthwhile. I do hope lots of teachers use the www.littlelillypolkadot.com site in their classrooms!!

This site offers several resources for early readers including alphabet learning tools, number matches, and a story book. In Learning Tools, students roll over letters of the alphabet to hear the letter names (turn up the speakers). The games portion has a very simple number puzzle to put numbers 1-4 into place. The activities section has printable coloring pages. Be sure to check out the book, a story about Lilly Polka Dot and her fear of going to the doctor. The book provides audio or the sound can be turned off for someone else to read. tag(s): alphabet (41), numbers (105), phonics (32)

In the Classroom

Share the book on your interactive whiteboard or projector during a health unit for students to learn that going to the doctor isn't scary. Create links to the alphabet and number activities on classroom computers for students to practice. Write (and decorate) your own Lilly Polka Dot stories. Provide this link on your class website for students (and parents) to easily access at home.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash
 
 
Have a wonderful day everyone!
Love, Wendy

Wendy, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and introducing yourself!!! We, who create literacy projects -- books & songs in my case -- need to stand together on behalf of children.

I know when I garnered my national INDIE Award of Excellence earlier this summer I was thrilled for the recognition. Congrats on the positive reviews!!
