We had a great time on the cruise, but I am glad to be home. I have terrible jet lag; been waking up everyday at 4AM.
But I was alert enough yesterday to put together this clip of Barbary Apes of Gibraltar jumping on my husband. It’s very funny. You can see it at my blog:

Oh… just one funny story. My favorite city was Barcelona, where we ate tapas and took a tour of the Gaudi architecture. But when I told my girlfriend about the tapas bar, she thought I said we went to a “topless bar.” We got a good laugh out of that one!
See ya on the Net,

#3. Rebus Stories

Rebus Stories Printable (** for premium members only)
A rebus uses pictures or symbols to represent words or parts of words. Some are brainteasers,
such as the rebus puzzles at Fun-with-Words.com. But today’s sites feature rebus stories for emergent readers, where the pictures are either substituted for certain words, or simply added along with the words.
ABCTeach brings us a dozen, printable rebus stories in black and white, reserving the color
versions for paying members. Each three or four-page PDF includes not just the story, but also a
simple worksheet with an activity such as a word search , fill-in-the-blank, or mix-and-match
puzzle. More preschool activities can found by exploring the Subjects topic in the breadcrumb
navigation menu near the top of the page.
Education World: Features from Highlights for Children
The twelve printable rebus stories at Education World are compliments of Highlights for
Children, taken directly from the pages of the iconic print magazine. The illustrations and the
story lines are delightful, making this a “must-see” stop on today’s rebus stories tour. FYI, there
are no missing words in these stories. The little illustrations simply sit next to the words they
represent. Other printables from the magazine include Hidden Pictures Â® Puzzles and Crafts.
Do you remember Highlights for Children from your childhood? I do. The Hidden Pictures Â®
were my favorite feature.
Enchanted Learning: Rebus Rhymes
For a really big collection of rebus stories, no one beats Enchanted Learning and their rebus
nursery rhymes: there are more than a hundred rhymes here. From “Ants Go Marching” to
“Yankee Doodle,” the nursery rhymes are grouped by topic and also listed alphabetically. These
pages are not in PDF, so printing will include all the extraneous stuff from the web page. And,
like those at Education World, there are no missing words in the rhymes. The pictures simply
illustrate the rhyme.
