Oh happy day! All About Learning has released a new freebie for subscribers: Flat Ziggy Club!
My kiddos just love Ziggy, which is a character used in All About Reading Pre-Reading.
With All About Reading’s new Flat Ziggy Club, your kiddos can spend time with Ziggy every day – all for FREE!
From the site:
For the months of July and August, Flat Ziggy will join you and your children on a fun adventure. Here are some of the activities your child will be able to enjoy with Flat Ziggy:
- Keep an activity checklist. Take Ziggy along on all your summer adventures and check off the fun activities your children and Flat Ziggy share together.
- Keep a reading log. Keep a record of the books your child reads with Flat Ziggy.
- Take LOTS of pictures! Going on a picnic? Bring Flat Ziggy along and take a picture to share with us! Reading a good book? Read it to Flat Ziggy and take a picture ofthat, too! Going to Grandma’s lake house? Don’t forget to pack Flat Ziggy! We’d love to see your pictures of Flat Ziggy sunning himself on the beach.
- Win prizes! Throughout the summer, we’ll be giving out LOTS of prizes! And the best part? You don’t have to be a good reader or a good photographer to win a prize. Everyone who participates is eligible to win one of our great prizes. But here’s a little hint…the more pictures you send, the more chances you’ll have to win
ABC Snacks – Summer Snacks Cookbook
Also available from All About Reading is the super fun ABC Snacks – Summer Snacks Cookbook!
Summer is here and this free summer snacks cookbook is just in time!
The ABC Snacks Summer Cookbook features 10 easy snack recipes, in addition to fun activities and teaching tips. And of course, each of the activities support pre-reading skills.
From the site:
“All the snacks in this recipe collection have a refreshing summer theme. Think about the fun you’ll have turning an orange, a handful of strawberries, and a few blackberries into a sunny smiley face. And imagine creating a sailboat from a slice of bread and a piece of cheese!”
ABC Snacks is a follow-up to the original ABC Snacks published by All About Reading several months ago.
Download both recipe cookbooks and have a fun time with your pre-readers this summer!
