Chloe and the No Good, Very Sad, Deplorable Pandemic

Coloring-book-Chloe-and-the-no-good-very-sad-deplorable-pandemic
 

Chloe and the No Good, Very Sad, Deplorable Pandemic is a coloring book with a short story. As the months of the year pass, the pandemic gets old. For a while, school is at home, then there is hybrid school, then back to regular school, off and on again. It is a difficult time for an eight-year-old girl who happens to be Miss Owl. This paperback coloring book is available on Amazon. Miss Owl has been coloring with her gel pens which could take some time, but the colors and bright and neat. Colored pencils or crayons would also work. The artists for this book are Oxana Cerra of Teacher’s Clipart, and her son, Gabriel. They kindly drew images I requested as custom art. Teacher’s Clipart has previously illustrated my other books.

I ran the text through the Lexile.com analyzer and it is “unofficially” 410L through 600L. I think that is about right.

By July, we had to cancel our trip to Paris to see our cousins and also we could not take the cruise with them.

 
By November, schools were closed again.
 

What would November bring? Would the school be hybrid or regular classes? Well, it was all distance learning.

Pre-K Flower PDF Coloring, Matching, Writing

Pre-K flower PDF. We have been working with flowers and plants this spring. It is refreshing to think about plants during the dormant-looking landscape at the end of the snowy Minnesota winter.

Here is the orchid in its new home. It is gorgeous and orchids add this elegant touch to any space! The person who received this plant was pleased with its beauty and realism. She is from a tropical location (Reunion Island) and is very familiar with orchids. It is difficult to maintain an orchid plant in cold Minnesota. She said the only way she could enjoy one year-round was if it was artificial. She also wanted one that really represented an orchid. White is her favorite color. She was amazed at the detail of the plant. We were all impressed. The packaging kept the petals from being squished and had clever little poles inside to provide appropriate space for the plant. It was all well done.

Of course, we have been working with flowers already, so it was time for some activity pages and a color page.

We began by laminating and preparing the materials on trays with crayons, dry-erase markers, glue, or clothespins to complete the activity. Here one tray is being carried to the table for work. Picking out your own work is better than being told what to do first.

Then the work began. Writing was first, as “ee” was added to theme words.

Then petals were counted and clipped with glitter clothespins from the dollar store. Such fun!

Coloring by letter allowed the crocus and daffodil flowers to look so nice.

The cut-and-paste patterning page was fun as glue sticks are irresistible! This page could also be colored.

The number maze page was laminated so it could be redone using dry-erase markers. Dry-erase markers wipe off so laminated pages may be reused. math-maze-laminated

We hope you like flowers as we do!
