I also included 11 links to related, enriching websites!

AND, I also included a -*B-*O-*N-*U-*S*- 19-pages of my "Reading Wheels" that I used to teach my sons to read.



The way these "Arts and Crafts Task Cards" came about is an interesting story!

A few weeks ago I was going through some old files and I found a plastic sack full of 5 x 7 notecards.

My mind raced! Were these the treasured activity cards I had created 28 years ago when when I had the incredible blessing of being able to stay at home with my three young sons for seven years in the middle of my 26-year teaching career?

I had been looking for these cards for years!! I took a deep breath and opened the sack...

Inside were 106 notecards with all the hand-written tasks I had researched, written with love and care, and then done with my own three boys!!! (See a photo in the “PREVIEW.”)

That's why these are really "Task Cards Written From the Heart!"

The activities in these task cards helped my boys learn so many life lessons, and the tasks strengthened our family values and relationships so much. Whether a teacher or a parent, I hope they can do the same for you and the children you have the privilege to impact!

Be sure to see the Preview for snapshots of many of these items!


Thank you from my heart, Mrs. S.
