As the weather gets warmer and summer vacation draws nearer, it becomes more and more difficult for all of us to concentrate on our regular school activities. Last week, instead of turning to the next page in Lauren's grammar workbook or pulling out another black-and-white math worksheet, I decided we could play games.
All of the gorgeous games pictured above are part of this month's Lovie Packs from Little Learning Lovies. For math, Lauren used two games dealing with place value and a timeline activity to practice telling time on an analog clock. For language arts skills, she practiced sorting verbs (helping versus action verbs) and combined word cards to form complete sentences.
Lauren absolutely loved playing the games. Some of the activities in the packs were a bit on the easy side and some are saved for when she's a bit older (multiplication practice). Each day last week, she begged me to do more of the games, and I heard far less complaining about schoolwork than I have heard on other days lately.
From a teacher standpoint, I am thrilled with the products from Little Learning Lovies. They were educational, easy to print, and beautiful. Our school days needed a little bit more color and a whole lot more fun. These games were just what we needed.
Our Lovie Pack also included activities for creating mathematical patterns, counting coins, learning the life cycle of a butterfly, practicing handwriting, and more. All of the materials are absolutely gorgeous, and the attention to detail was fabulous.
The Lovie Packs are available in two different levels -- a Tiny Lovies pack for preschoolers through first graders and a Little Lovies pack for first through third graders. Each individual pack costs $14 (delivered as an electronic download for immediate printing) or as a combination package of both levels for $25. Each one has approximately 8 games or activities to print and also bonus coordinating printables such as calendar numbers and reward charts.
These products have brought much joy to Lauren's school days recently, and I look forward to using many more of the activities from Little Learning Lovies. They offer several products individually, and I've already printed a new file folder game and some addition practice cards to add to our schoolwork later this week. Some of their games are available for less than $2, so it's definitely worth checking them out.
