Worksheet Wednesday: Apple Pickin’

Applepickinworksheet

I’m really in the mood for Fall — too bad it still feels an awful lot like summer here in Phoenix. I was reading about a town just a few hours away that has an apple picking festival this weekend. Doesn’t that sound fun? Too bad we’ve already got plans.

At least the thought of apple festivals provided ample inspiration for today’s Worksheet Wednesday…

Worksheet Wednesday: Graph Paper

Free Printable Graph Paper #graphpaper #printables

Since this post is about our new graph paper I suppose you’re expecting me to write a story inspired by Liam or Harrison’s newfound love of architectural design–and although my boys love this paper, I really created it with me in mind.

When my Dad is not busy being a SuperPapa, he fills his extra hours being an Architect. Growing up, I watched my Dad take notes, create building sketches and write letters on really cool graph paper notepads nicely branded with his logo. (I should have known I was destined for advertising and design then!) Shortly after Bettijo and I started Paging Supermom I designed my own Paging Supermom branded graph paper to be just like him. (I wonder if I can get his Architecture firm to use my version instead?)

But really, graph paper is so versatile. Your kids can probably come up with a million uses for it–to get them started, here are some ideas:

Worksheet Wednesday: Imagination Workout

Imaginationworkout

With holidays and such we’ve missed a couple Worksheet Wednesdays, but we’re back today with an extra special worksheet designed by my own clever super daughter Attalie.

She loves color, art and pretty much anything creative. One of her favorite activities is what we like to call “Imagination Workouts.” Attalie tells me she got the idea in art class at school. The first I saw of them was a worksheet she created totally from scratch. It featured a hand-drawn grid that was not at all straight but very cute! (If I was really Supermom I would have remembered to take a picture of it — it was SO precious, but I fear it ended up in the trash.)

Well Attalie really wanted me to share this idea on the blog. So we decided I would use the computer to create a nice straight grid, and then she would hand draw in the lines and shapes in each of the boxes.

Worksheet Wednesday: Letter Matching

Harrison loves making capital H’s. In fact, if he finds a writing utensil, watch out! He will cover paper (or table surfaces) with his signature letter. So, the other day we were doodling together and I drew lowercase h’s. He was NOT impressed. Then it occurred to me, there are some letters he tends to gravitate towards the uppercase version. Do your little ones do this? I’m pretty sure he knows the difference, but I thought this simple worksheet would give us the chance to review upper and lowercase letters. (And if nothing else, the backside will end up with some great capital H’s.)
