My Friend Nate

I have a friend.

Nate is a neat person.
He is not messy.
He is also nice to be near.

Nate is nice to everyone.
We all think he is nifty.
He makes people laugh.
He is a nut!

One day, he put a clothespin on his nose.
His voice sounded nasally.
It did not sound normal.
It had a high squeak.
It was very funny!
Everyone laughed, even Nate!

One day, I had a nasty day.
I did not feel well.
I had a stuffed-up nose.
I needed rest.
Nate carried my books.
He gave me a napkin to wipe my nose.
He told me nutty jokes.
He cheered me up.

Nate is nifty and nutty.
But most of all, Nate is a natural friend.
How nice to know Nate.

Letter N Song

That nine neighbors gave to her
For words that start with N
The people say amen!
Words like Nanny N loves her new necklace
N N N N N N N

Oh, he loves the letter N
and likes to count with me.

Please place Disk 2 for Jubilee English 1 into your computer.  Click on Video 7 to watch a movie titled "Miss Nelson is Back."  

When the kids in Room 207 find out that their teacher, Miss Nelson, will be away for a few days, they prepare to act up - despite the likely appearance of Miss Viola Swamp, the meanest substitute in the whole world. Luckily, the unexciting Mr. Blandsworth, their principal, takes over instead. Soon the bored-to-tears kids send up a Miss Nelson look-alike to relieve him of his duties. Then it's fun and games until the real Viola Swamp shows up. What would Miss Nelson say if she knew?

 

Let's make a book about the letter Nn.  Print and color the pages below:

Materials:

  • printer
  • paper (you can use a slightly heavier paper for a longer lasting book)
  • stapler
  • something to color with (if using B&W template)

Directions:

  • Print template of choice.  The B&W version is fun for young children to color in or for older children to color as gifts for younger ones.  I like printing a color cover and B&W pages.
      
  • Color the template pieces if you are doing the B&W version.
_____________________________________________________________

Numbered Pages:

  • If you imagine a 'real' book for a second, you know that each page has printing on the front and the back.  We're going to fold the pages to make it like a real book.
      
    • Ignore the cover for now.
        
    • Fold each page along the center dotted line so the images are on the OUTSIDE and the blank sides of the paper are on the inside (imagine you're making a greeting card).  
        
    • You can use a glue stick, if you like, to glue the pages together (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE COVER!)
          
  • Stack the pages, so the odd numbers are on top and the folded edges are lined up.  Trim with scissors or paper cutter if needed.
      

Cover Page:

  • Fold the cover page along the dotted line, again with the images on the outside.
      
  • OPTIONAL:  You can laminate the cover page or print it on cardstock if you want it to be more like a real book's cover.
      

Assemble the Book:

  • Open the cover page (like a folder) and slip the pages inside so that when you open the cover you'll see page 1 -- the unfolded edges of the pages will go against the folded part of the cover.  
      
  • Close the cover page and tap the book so everything lines up.
  • Put three or four staples along the edge to hold the book together.
      
  • Trim again, if needed.
      
  • Flip through the book once, carefully folding the pages to make the book easier for the children to read.
      

Printing the Templates:

  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen. 
       
  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers). 
  • There'll be less trimming to do if you also turn off the headers and footers.
