Grandparents Day Activities

Did you know that September 10th is Grandparents’ Day?  Grandparents are special people and I would love to help you spoil rotten all the Grandparents out there!  Today I bring you some fun Grandparents Day Activities and ideas.  Of course, sometimes not all children have a grandma/grandpa.  If this is the case, why not find a “Grand-friend”.  Each year at our school, Grandparents are invited to school for a special day of activities.  If the children do not have a grandparent who is able to come, the children can bring a grand-friend.  If nothing else, Grandparents usually don’t mind “adopting an extra student for the day…Grandparents are good like that.

Okay, let’s first start out with a book.  Here are a few of our favorites.  All of these books make me smile …(my children LOVE them all).

Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

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 ReadingMrs. 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.



    Grandparents day questionaire please.

    1. Hi there, It looks like you are trying to get our free download. To get your freebie you enter your email into the light blue box on the page. I WILL DO THAT FOR YOU NOW. Then…. check your spam folder…sometimes things go there. The freebie has a subject of “Here is your free download!” …Inside that email there is a link. That link, if you click on it, the download will either popup in a new tab or download into your download folder. Sometimes that link does not come hyperlinked. If that happens you have to copy/paste the link into a new browser tab and it will then open for you. If you have trouble with this, though, send me an email ([email protected]) and I will help you!

    1. Hi there,
      I think you were looking for some free resources on my site but were having some trouble. I updated my site and the free downloads disappeared. I fixed things now and I just entered your email so you should get the download.
      1) Check Spam – sometimes things go there.
      2) Subject is “Here is your free download” – there is a link inside. Sometimes that link is not hyperlinked…you may have to…
      3) copy/paste the hyperlink for the download. It should open or download into your download folder
      4) If you have trouble, write me at [email protected] (forward me the freebie email because I don’t know which freebie you wanted).

      Thanks! Have fun!
