Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. November 26, 2008
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers. We are going to celebrate at my Dad’s house .. and I’m really looking forward to it. We will be a small crowd (missing a few of my siblings) but both my kids will be there .. so I’m excited!
It’s a short road trip for us (about a hundred miles each way) and I really hope the “traffic fairies” shine their magic on us, and that we don’t get caught in a Thanksgiving traffic nightmare.
Here are some resources from our archives to help with your festivities:
See ya on the Net,

Preschool Activities Printable (** for premium members only)
The preschool years are simultaneously enchanting and exhausting. So much energy bundled into those tiny little bodies! These activity sites are sure to help when you are looking for something fun to share your kids that is both easy to whip up and engaging for all involved.
First-School Preschool Activities and Crafts
These crafts, lesson plans, themes and activities are adaptable for ages two to six, and can be used at home, in the classroom, or at day care. First stop is the basic materials list, which includes construction paper, tempura paints, tape, crayons, and the ever important cover-up such as an old t-shirt. The activities themselves are divided into printable activities and themes (such as alphabet, colors, numbers and so on.)
Noteworthy stops at Jean Warren’s Preschool Express include the toddler and preschool activity calendars with a different mini-activity nearly every day of the month. “Draw the first letter of your child’s name on paper. Have child glue over it with leaves.” “Find cities of distant relatives on a map.” “Sing your phone number to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” Other highlights are the Music & Rhyme, Skill, Discovery and Inspiration Stations.
Story Nory: Free Audio Stories for Kids
Story time is one of my favorite toddler activities, so I was thrilled to discover these wonderful audio stories, all narrated by Natasha Gostwick. Story Nory is an archive of stories old and new, with a brand new recording released every week. These can be listened to on the computer, easily transferred to an iPod, or copied to a CD for listening in the car. The stories are classified as Original, Fairytales, Classics, Educational and Junior (which are the simplest stories specifically for toddlers and ESL students.)
