Welcome friends to another fun Monday!

This week we are starting our Letter E activities with Elmer the Elephant. We have a free letter E sight words printable, letter E elephant craft with printable (also free of course), and an art project inspired by Elmer the Elephant that will get your kiddo having fun creating freely (read here why I like process art). Elmer is an adorable elephant who teaches readers that what is unique about us, makes us special. If you haven’t read it, I totally recommend it. The book is not necessary to join in the fun today so stick around and keep reading. Also at the end of this post is the Click and Chat Social Media Link Up so bloggers can grow their social media followers. 🙂  Alright, now you know the plan so let’s get started 🙂
