Do you ever feel frustrated during reading aloud time? For me, once I have finally gotten everyone together to listen to our wonderful history or literature book…the squirming starts!
There are so many wonderful options for those times, like Lego’s or Play-Doh. But sometimes I want something that directly connects with the topics we are studying. I love to be able to pull out these activities books. My girls pick a picture that we are studying, and start coloring.
The activity books were originally written to go along with the Tapestry Primer curriculum, but since they are chronological, they go well with the full Tapestry program, or any chronological history program. The pages include a number of different activities, including map work, mazes, matching, simple writing, and famous people.
