Free Printable Blank Music Staff Paper for your little composer at PagingSupermom.com

Last summer I created blank music staff paper at the request of my daughter. I took the above photo of her with her very first composition and shared it on Instagram. Although it was always my intention to share the free printable sheet music paper with you, somehow I never got around to doing it. So I dug out the file since I’m filling in for Aimée on Worksheet Wednesday today. (She’s jetting off to ALT San Francisco, and I’m staying home with baby Rockwell who is cooing up a storm lately!)

Kids really do love to create things, and if your child is taking piano lessons or otherwise musically inclined they are bound to be thrilled when you hand them a stack of blank music staff paper. Here is a video of Attalie playing her latest song, which she calls “Speed.”

Worksheet Wednesday: Counting Sets

Countingsetsworksheet

Piper’s kindergarten teacher was recently telling me that it takes young students a while to catch on to the concept of numbered sets. Grouping things into sets is a strategy that adults do almost automatically to figure things out quickly, but this approach is not so obvious to a child. So I created this worksheet to help Piper practice.

Oh, and the best part: my online shopping spree is providing lots of gifts being delivered daily–I am especially happy about this because this is the first year I will finish my shopping early. (Yes, that is an official Supermom Moment for me!)

Worksheet Wednesday: What’s the Contiguous United States?

Contiguous Map United States Printable

Coloring map of the Contiguous United States and many more free Printables from PagingSupermom.com

Since my family travelled pretty much all summer, my boys suggested we color in a map to show the states we visited this year. I quickly formatted and printed this map only to discover confusion among my youngest. He was so concerned: where were Alaska and Hawaii? Since we hadn’t visited either of those states, I (lazily) left them off the map which ended up presenting us the perfect opportunity to explain a couple terms we hear referring to similar maps: The Lower 48 and Continental United States.
