Today I have an Awesome Earth Day Printable Coloring Book for you! If I were celebrating earth day, here is what I would do. I would read the book Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg. You know when you or a child goes to draw or make something and you make a mistake, you often say “oops” and throw out or recycle the piece of paper? Well, I am guessing you have a few little ones that do this, or a classroom of students that do this. Help them to see that the “oops” can be something beautiful! You can transform your mistake into something awesome. Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg. is a great book to teach children this concept. I would read Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg. and then dump out all the “trash” in the recycling bin and create something beautiful.
There is a video below from the author of the book, showing him create some fun art from the “trash”.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
