Today I am going to be sharing my Catching Fireflies Adapted Books! I have a slight obsession with adapted books, but I love how you can  work on so many skills so easily and it is something the students can do independently and keeps them engaged!


Here is the same vs. different adapted book. My kiddos have a lot of trouble understanding this concept. 




Firefly Sizes...this compares big and small. 


This book is a little different and I kind of came up with the idea as I was assembling. Only the bottom flips and instead of using velcro (I am little velcroed out right now) I used magnets and attached magnets to the back of the fireflies and put the book on a cookie sheet. 


Ethan enjoyed counting out the fireflies and sorting the fireflies by color. 







There are two other books in the packet not pictured. 


Also, start filling up your cart!



And...(last thing I promise!) Check out the Pirate giveaway for my birthday!

I am linking up with Kacey for Five for Friday!
1. This past weekend my baby sister got married! It was a beautiful day and I hope that her move out to KS goes well. In a matter of four days she has gotten married, moved back to KS, moved into a new apartment, and started a new job! Yikes!
2. I reupholstered our storage ottoman and I love it! My husband hates color and I love it and I am slowly adding more of it around the house.
There is a great tutorial about how to do it here. 
3. We have been enjoying the hot weather (90s and humid) here in MI. Ethan loves his best buddy Aaron. 
4. I am going to by linking up with Mrs. D's Corner for the Building Blocks of B2S. Check it out on Tuesday!

5. Today is my birthday and I am having a giveaway! My new Pirate Math Activities and 5 Little Pirates Poem! The giveaway runs through Sunday so make sure to check back!

Educators share ideas, resources and teaching tips

This is a simple activity, but great for developing the pincer grasp. I found a great chart showing the fine motor development of children here. 

Most of my students in my class are at the 2-3 years old or below. So this simple activity is great for developing strength in their fingers and the pincer grasp. 


1. Roll the play-doh. 


2. Using their "go" fingers pinch the play-doh using their pincer grasp. 



This simple activity will help your students get ready for correct pencil grasp and for holding scissors and cutting!
