Wow…”Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.” Yes, I am a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fan. I think I would love the movie regardless, but growing up in Chicago and knowing many of the places in the movie, it is definitely a must-see, in my opinion. I know, being a teacher I should not advocate having a day off of school but, it is true, life does move pretty fast and you should stop and take a look around and enjoy it.
Free Worksheet! Snowy Day Writing Prompt
Does it snow where you live? Is snows where I live! My children love the snow. There may only be one snowflake on the ground and the kids want to run outside and build a snowman! They also want to go sledding, make snow-angels, or just play on the play set that is covered in snow. Today’s free worksheets are writing prompts that are great for kindergarten or first grade. The writing prompts ask the students why they love the snow and what the best thing about the snow is. I love the snow because it makes my children happy… after they have fun in it for a little bit, I am okay if it leaves! It is nice to have a change of seasons, though. If you don’t live in a climate with snow, maybe this could be a good lesson in imagination!
Before your little ones do their worksheets, perhaps they would like to watch Mrs. Karle reading her sight word book called “Play, Play, Play”. It is about having fun in the snow! This may give your little ones some ideas on what they want to write in their writing prompt! The sight words used in this book are: dog, cat, bear, little, can, one, two, three, run, play, so children can read this sight word book by themselves after day 25 of our learn to read free program.

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.
