We've been having fun with all things pirates this week! We read through a stack of Pirate Picture Books. Then we worked on some counting practice with X Marks the Spot Counting Puzzles. Next up was some Pirate Counting I Spy Cards. We grabbed the neighbor and some pirate costumes for fun and then practiced our counting skills.

We are all about pirates this week and have a fun X Marks the Spot - Pirate Themed Number Puzzle FREEBIE for you today. After reading some of our favorite pirate books, it was time to practice writing and counting numbers up to 20. Of course, we had to do this with a pirate theme to make it even more fun. Pirates, treasure, ships, palm trees, parrots and more all made these puzzles more engaging.

We are all about themed weeks and this week the focus is pirates! I wanted to find some good Pirate Picture Books that were not too violent or scary. We headed to the library to grab a huge stack of books. Here are 10 of our favorite pirate picture books. Do you have a favorite to add to the list?

When I was first contacted to write a review for The Mass Box, I was SO excited. Just days before that I had learned about Hello Bible, which provides a monthly box with a Bible story and craft for kids. I loved the concept (monthly subscription) and then I heard about The Mass Box which is the same idea only the crafts and readings go along with the liturgical year so they are the readings the kids would be hearing at church. A Catholic subscription box that helps my kids to understand what they are hearing in Mass through a cute and quick craft, ummm yes please! Sign us up. My girls love crafts and I am always looking for ways to teach them about the faith that are at their level yet meaningful.

With the weather getting warmer, my mind instantly turns to ways to take learning outdoors. I thought of this fun way to use rocks to practice sight words and it would make the perfect activity to play outside. The great part about it is that really you could use it inside or outside all year round. It is an easy activity to make and relatively inexpensive (practically free if you can collect your own rocks). Sight word rocks would be a great literacy or word work center but keep reading because I've got several other ways that you can use these letter rocks.
