FREE James and the Giant Peach Study Guide

James and the Giant Peach Unit Study - Grades 1-5 - Cornish Heritage VenturesSmall

It is no secret that we enjoy reading books by Roald Dahl in this house. However finding study guides that are suitable for our children can be hard so when I wanted them to study James and the Giant Peach earlier this year I decided to tackle the job of creating a study guide myself. It turned into a mammoth task but one that all enjoyed once finished. I am now sharing it with you in the hopes that you too can make good use of it.

As you will see, once you have downloaded the file, there is more than a study of James and the Giant Peach included. We also studied each of the characters, even taking a “trip” to New Zealand for the glowworm!

It is suitable for grades 1-5 but could easily be adapted for older children.

Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning :)

I look forward to hearing what you think.

Great for PreK, these latest Math worksheets from Mama’s Learning Center are colorful and great practice for those new “counters” in the house.

Most of us are in full swing of summer activities but I am sure many of you, like me, are already thinking of next year. In fact, although we are taking time off here and there we are continuing to school through this period. When I received notification of the “Pay What You Want” sale over at CurrClick I simply had to go take a look! It is an AMAZING deal! There are many, many publishers partaking in this offer which ends July 9th, 2014 so you have a few days to browse and stock up!

I LOVE a great deal but try to restrain myself to what I know we are going to use! LOL! Our bank balance would really suffer otherwise! This is also a great opportunity to try out a new publisher and see if you like the products they produce. We certainly have our favorites but I have already found a new one that we are going to try.

Happy shopping and planning,

Liz
