Are you taking a holiday break or playing catch up?  We are trying to catch up and I am trying to keep reminding myself that we aren’t on anybody else’s schedule. With Kaylee’s health issues at the beginning of our school year and everyone in the house catching the plague earlier in the month, I feel like we’ve been trying to catch up all year long.  But we’re giving ourselves grace and going at our own pace….

I Can Doodle, Can You?

We love doodling in this house.  I doodle when I’m making phone calls, I doodle when the girls are doing school work, the girls doodle when I read to them.  We have gotten dedicated doodle books before to guide our doodling and we love those books.

So when we got the chance to try out I Can Doodle Rhymes from Timberdoodle, I knew it would be right up our alley!

I was right! The girls totally loved this.  Avery is older than the target age for this book but she still enjoyed it.  She is at that point in reading where her confidence is growing and she is just THRILLED whenever she can read something herself.  She was able to read all of these rhymes and that made it so much more fun for her.  Bonus for mom was that she could do it 100% independently!

Kaylee has just gotten a good grasp on rhyming so she was having fun using these rhymes as a starting point and then thinking of anything else to go along with that particular word set.  The format was perfect for her age/ability too!  As everyone knows by now, we follow a Brave Writer Lifestyle so the copywork aspect fit right into our realm.

This doodle book is included in Timberdoodle’s Kindergarten Curriculum Kit and I think that is the perfect place for it.  My girls are on either end of that (Pre-K and 1st) and this was a big WIN for both of them.  I am a big believer that learning should be fun and that the more fun you have, the more you will be learning.  That kinder age is such a special time when kids have voracious appetites for learning and it is so important to foster that and continue to make it fun.  I Can Doodle Rhymes does just that!

In her own words, Avery’s review is: “Great! I really like drawing and writing and I got to do both.”

In her own words, Kaylee says “That one is funny! And fun!”
