Freebie Friday ~ Madeline Resources

Madeline Resources

As a child, I loved the Madeline series. Here you can find a few free printable resources for your Madeline theme.

In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines,
lived twelve little girls in two straight lines
They left the house, at half past nine…
The smallest one was Madeline.

So begins Ludwig Bemelmans’s beloved children’s story, Madeline. First published in 1939, Madeline and all five of its sequels have become classics, spawning toys, games, dolls, and even a motion picture. The original Madeline was named a Caldecott Honor Book, and the first of its sequels, Madeline’s Rescue received a Caldecott Medal. What is it about this character that has endeared her to readers for more than 60 years? The answer is—attitude.

Madeline has been described as charmingly impetuous, irrepressible, mischievous, and precocious. She may have been the smallest of the 12 little girls in two straight lines, but she certainly was the feistiest. Wearing their flat sailor hats and identical coats, Madeline’s unnamed classmates all look alike except for their hair. But Madeline stands out, not because of the way she looks, but because unlike the other girls, she is utterly fearless. When she boldly tells the tiger in the zoo, “Pooh-pooh,” you wonder if what she is really saying is, “I’m not afraid of you or anything else in this world!”

No doubt about it. Madeline is a gutsy little girl, and that’s what makes her such a unique role model in a time when storybook princesses defined femininity for girls. Madeline gave young girls a reason to explore who they were as individuals, even if that meant being a tad disobedient. She gave girls the courage to speak their mind and showed them that there was nothing unfeminine about being smart and strong.

The kids both had fun decorating the cupcakes. I turned around for a minute and when I looked back I noticed that my daughter had spooned more toppings onto the plate then the cupcake. Now we have a bag of mixed toppings. 🙂

Unicorn Minus One Coverall Game from Recipe for Teaching
Unicorn Resources
For this game, I had my students roll the dot cube. They used the unicorn counters to count out that many unicorns on their unicorn ten frame. Since this is a minus one game, they then took away one unicorn from the ten frame. Some of my students were able to determine one less without counting the leftover unicorn counters and some counted the leftover unicorns. I like to hold my students accountable for their math work by having them say the subtraction equation to the partner they are working with. For example, in the picture below, they rolled a 6 and took away 1. They would tell their friend, “6-1=5.” After students determined what “minus one” was, they covered that number on their game board with a unicorn eraser. Students continued this process on each partner’s turn. The goal of the game is to cover all of the numbers on the game board. After students have learned this game and are familiar with it, this game would make a great addition to a math station.
