Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Autumn Poetry Printables for Kids

I just love autumn!
The leaves are changing colors, the weather is getting cooler (finally!) and I am inspired to cook lots of yummy, things! (I've already made a Pumpkin Roll, and some Soft Ginger Spice Cookies, among other things.)

A few days ago, as I was helping my daughter with one of her homeschool lessons, I got the idea to put together a little poetry  lesson/activity for the kids.
Given the fact that it was a math lesson... place values, more specifically, that I was helping her with, I have no idea how the thought of poetry got into my brain!

At any rate, it did, and here we are.
I put together a few poetry printables with an Autumn theme.

I loved doing Cinquain poems when I was a kid. One of the things I like about them as an adult, is that they are a good way to reinforce or introduce parts of speech.

The basic format for a Cinquain Poem is:
Adjective, Adjective
-ing Verb, -ing Verb, -ing Verb
Noun (Synonym of original noun)

Here is the worksheet we did:

I made this one, and a couple others as printables, to share with you!
Another favorite of mine, is the Word Poems. You know the ones I am talking about... where you use the letters in the word as the first letter of each line.

The other poetry worksheet I am including is a 5W Poem worksheet. You simply use the 5W questions as a format to your poem- Who, Where, What, When, & Why.

I am also including a little Halloween treat for you!
