"...super positive way to start each day with the children". - Julie M., Mother

What Day is Today? and What Month Is It? use phonics, alliteration, and strategic word placement to promote fluent reading and instill confidence in young readers. Children enjoy the repetition and finding phonetic objects that correspond with the text on each page. This is so fun kids don’t even realize they are learning.

Sandy Parker Books is happy to present a notepad for a multitude of purposes.

A notepad
intended to provide extension activities for Sandy’s Books is great fun. Some ideas are:

  • Create your own calendar.
  • Create charts i.e. ask a child how many Monday’s have we gone to the library and have them color in that many blocks on the Monday grid (or any activity you choose)
  • Use it as a "count down" chart for something the child is looking forward to.
  • Use it as a chore chart that kids can keep as a reminder!
  • Of course adults and children can use the notepad for a fun place to write!

Imagine the possibilities!
