Freebie Friday ~ Summer Activities

It’s Summer in Sunny South Africa and for the next 6 weeks, or so, the kidlets will be home looking for summer activities to keep them busy. We recently bought our first home *yay*, and now we have tons of space for the kidlets to run around and play. But I know that they will have moments of boredom. I don’t believe in entertaining my children all the time. I’m a HUGE proponent of them keeping themselves entertained and figuring out what they can do without constantly being glued to a screen. Here are a few fun printables to print out for your little ones when things get a little hairy.

If you are creative you can come up with a ton of different ways to have fun.

I also created a quick and easy In House Scavenger Hunt that you can download, print off, and get to the fun! This is good for kids of all ages. If you have an older kid, just hand them a pen and let them go. If you have a younger kid, you can use the secondary printable to just look for any objects around the house that have a specific color and then write them in.

This fun and interactive activity will have your students begging to play again and again as they try to beat their best time by reading fluently and more quickly each time.

The poem has been divided into 28 cards in an “I have, Who Has” fashion. Students will have to listen carefully as they only get the 3 or 4 words in the poem ahead of their lines. I have also listed several alternate ways to enjoy the included cards.

I used this activity for over ten years in my classroom, and my students loved it every year. I am offering it as a free resource as my Holiday gift to you! Happy Holidays!

Five Little Reindeer – Christmas Emergent Reader for Students from Learn a Latte on Teachers Pay Teachers
Freebie Friday - Christmas Activities
Check out this FREE emergent reader. My students love the poem, “Five Little Pumpkins,” so I created this Christmas version, Five Little Reindeer. With my prekinders and kindergarten students, we read this book together for shared reading several times, using the larger color copy available in my Five Little Reindeer – Christmas Math & Literacy Fun set. We point out the sight words we know, talk about how the text matches the pictures and how we can use the pictures to help us figure out unfamiliar words, practice reading fluently, act out the story with students pretending to be the reindeer, and do lots of fun reindeer activities. We also use the book for guided reading in small groups. After reading the book several times together, the students color the black and white copies and practice reading their books together and independently. By this point, they are very familiar with the text and love reading it all by themselves! 🙂

Please check out my Christmas sets, Five Little Reinder – Christmas Math & Literacy Fun. This set includes a larger color copy of the Five Little Reindeer book with high quality graphics and LOTS of great reindeer math and literacy activities including color words, number words, sight words, counting sets, writing numbers, a reindeer glyph and much more! I also have a new Christmas set, Christmas Literacy Centers & Activities, that provides student practice with syllables, rhyming, beginning sounds, and short vowels.

I was challenged by Travel Start to share my favourite childhood memories and what better memory to share than my favourite childhood adventures on my grandparents farm.
Paper Jet Challengehttps://www.travelstart.co.za/lp/cheap-flights-to-zanzibar
Growing up in the 1980’s and 90’s we were fortunate enough to have grandparents that lived in Rural South Africa and farmed sheep. I remember my brothers and I having, almost, full reign of the farm. I remember finding old bricks at the wind pump and deciding that we were going to build a house. We spent hours and hours building this little, dilapidated house with only 4 short “walls” only about 3 bricks high. We spent the whole weekend playing in our little house den. Our imaginations ran wild with all our little adventures.

Paper Jet Challenge

Dad readying the horses for someone to ride and my Aunty Sharon ready to ride.

Having the freedom to explore the farm and watch our grandfather work with the sheep was definitely an advantage I didn’t realise my peers and other children weren’t exposed to. Something my children don’t have exposure to today. I remember feeding lambs that had been abandoned by their mothers with my grandfather. Its a memory I treasure to this day and have shared with my children on numerous occasions (probably to the point of annoyance).

Paper Jet Challenge

Feeding the lambs with Grampa

The kidlets have had different experiences that we never had as children. My mother used to co-manage a game farm in the Upington area and we spent many holidays there. They have many fond memories of going on game drives, walking up to giraffe and watching them from a short distance.

One thing I would love to add to our family holiday memories is a trip to Zanzibar. What a beautiful place! There is so much to sea and what better way to make new memories than on beautiful beaches and museums.
Paper Jet Challenge

Zanzibar: a romantic island paradise of aromatic spices, tropical beaches, and exotic African rhythms

Zanzibar is a unique paradise. Beyond the dreamy turquoise and raw coconut coastlines and delectable cinnamon-vanilla aromatics, it is a place of dazzling colour, spellbinding culture, and bewitching soul. Zanzibar is an archipelago off the coast of Tanzania and is home to an estimated population of 1.5 million. Attractions include Stone Town, Mnemba Atoll, and Kendwa Beach.
Paper Jet Challenge
Get ready to lose yourself in the sultry rhythm and shabby decadence of this tropical African paradise with cheap flights to Zanzibar. Zanzibar is home to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ), which is 10-minute drive from the centre of town. The airport serves Kenya Airways, Mango Airlines and Precision Air. Popular domestic flights to Zanzibar depart from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Flight duration from Johannesburg to Zanzibar is approximately 3 hours, 35 minutes.

How Elf on a Shelf almost ruined Christmas

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.

Elf on a Shelf
Last year our Elf on a Shelf, Tinsel arrived. There was much fun and excitement before Christmas and the children loved it. This year Pixie told me she was scared of Tinsel and didn’t want him to come visit us because she doesn’t like that he watches her and flies around the house when no one is looking.

It really freaked her out.

Papa and I then decided to tell her the truth and to show her that Tinsel was just a toy that I had hidden away in my closet. She was petrified when I took him out of the box and wouldn’t even touch him. It was heart breaking. We then had to break the news to Koko and Fifi, who weren’t impressed with me for lying to them about it. While Koko was fine, Fifi took it badly and wanted to know why we had lied to them. Explaining to them that it was just to make the countdown to Christmas a little more exciting, she seemed to settle down… eventually.

And then we got asked the questions, IS SANTA REAL? Is the Tooth Fairy real? What about the Easter Bunny?

I refused to lie to them, and told them that Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny were just fun things adults did for children for these occasions. Daddy is Santa (that’s why he hands out gifts on Christmas morning, Momma and Daddy are the Tooth Fairy and Momma is the Easter Bunny. We had 3 very sad children in our home that day. They had to grow up very fast.

We have decided that since they know Tinsel isn’t real, that they got to choose what Tinsel did every night. Each child, including Noo, gpt a turn to have him do something special, naughty, etc. The kids had loads of fun leading up to Christmas getting Tinsel to do their bidding and it made Pixie so much happier knowing that he is just a toy and not some magical Peeping Tom that is stalking her.

We forget that our children are sensitive creatures and that, while some think its fun, others might be freaked out about it. While I think its great that we like to add a little magic to Christmas for our children, we need to be honest when they ask the questions, or it may come back to bite us. Parenting can be hard sometimes, but lying to our children when they ask pointed questions about things like this is something I learned a lot about on this particular day.

You can follow the adventures of Tinsel the Elf on my Instagram account.

True Christian Christmas

happy birthday jesus

Christian Christmas

True Christian Christmas
Christmas isn’t showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It’s honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.

It’s serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It’s making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.

It’s taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds.

Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.

So let’s remember Christmas is
About our Savior’s birth;
That’s the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.

By Joanna Fuchs

Wishing you and your family a very merry and blessed Christmas

God Bless
