Happy Father's Day

I haven't blogged in a week....oh my goodness! 

I am really enjoying sleeping in and READING during my lazy days of summer though!  I've already 4 books....not counting the books I have to read for school.  It is so much fun to just sit down and read any book I choose.  Love it!  

I just got back a little while ago from tutoring one of my students.  His mom asked me a few months ago if I would be willing to tutor him over the summer and I said....YEP!  This little boy is so sweet and so much fun I just couldn't say no.  

I think it was strange for him to see his teacher outside of school though.  We met at a local library and he worked hard the whole time....even with lots of other kiddos running around the children's section.  I didn't expect that, but I was so proud of him for trying so hard.  

On Thursday, I'm going to give him my new Night Before Father's Day Pack!  I thought it would be a sweet thing to do for his dad before Sunday. 

I finished this unit over the weekend, but I was out of town for a wedding so I kindly put aside my blogging until I came back home.  I love blogging, but I was visiting with my best friend growing up who now lives 4 states away so I HAD to spend LOTS of time with her while I could.  I know you understand.  :)

This pack is based on the book The Night Before Father's Day by Natasha Wing.  Click on the picture and it will take you to Amazon to buy it!  :)
The Night Before Father's Day
My kiddos loved the book so I decided to create some activities to go with it.  You don't have to have the book to use all of the activities, but it would be a great introduction.  Here is a look at my newest unit (It's only $2 at my TpT store):

There is a book to create and a very simple tie craftivity to make.  There are also several writing prompts and since many kiddos are not able to spend Father's Day with their dad for various reasons I created writing prompts for grandpa, uncle, step-dad and I included a blank one so they can choose someone else if they want.  

I will give this new pack away for FREE to the first two people who want it!  All you have to do is leave a comment with your email address and I'll send it to you!  I know many of you are already out of school, but it would be a great activity to do at the end of next year.  

Hopefully, I'll be back before another week passes.  But who knows?!?!  I do have another wedding to go to this weekend!  :)
