Aah! Blown Away, Crash! An Alphabet Misadventure is ready to take flight into the world. The softcover version is officially available on Amazon (here) and the hardcover version is available for pre-order on Amazon (here) and barnesandnoble.com (here).
This was a project I had started years ago but filed away until I felt the timing was right. And that timing came when my 12-year-old daughter agreed to do all of the illustrations for it. I had a lot of fun working on this project with her!
Recently, I’ve been busy creating Fun Extras to go along with Aah! Blown Away, Crash!, and I am excited to announce they are all officially available.
The first “Fun Extra” was a shadow puppet printable, which I released last week (as seen here).
A 19-page teacher’s guide, which can be used at home or in a classroom setting is also now available.
It includes activities for English language arts (reading comprehension, vocabulary, alphabet practice, and writing practice), science (birds, shadows, clouds, and wind), math (counting, adding/subtracting, word problems, and shapes), social studies (map skills, decision making, and further discussion), and art (sculpting, drawing, painting, and crafting).
It also includes the shadow puppets printable, a printable of pictures for math practice, and a maze printable.
Practice adding and subtracting with these printables that feature a palm tree, shark fin, and cloud. Print on card stock for durability. Word problem examples are included within the teacher’s guide.
The bird in Aah! Blown Away, Crash! (named Finch) crashes on a deserted island but figures out he can zoom away. Help Finch find the deserted island again with this simple maze.
And the last “Fun Extra” that I mentioned in the teacher’s guide but didn’t actually include is an alphabet recognition printable.
These can be printed on card stock for increased durability and used in a variety of ways to practice letter recognition. One way would be to play Memory with the cards. Another way would be to hide the letters and go on an “alphabet scavenger hunt”.
All of these activities and other activities to go along with other books are available on Fun Extras.
I hope you enjoy them!
