May 2016 has come and gone! For my family and me, it means a huge change in our lives as the end of the month saw all of our earthly belongings being packed up by movers and put on a ship with destination Germany. We won’t see our stuff (including my PC!) again until the first week of July! Until then, we’re essentially “homeless” but fortunate to be able to stay with friends for 3 weeks and then to go on a two-week vacation to Florida to finish our time in the US with a bang.
Let’s take a look at all of the posts that I wrote last month, including a special feature of the three most popular new posts and my personal favorite!

Top 3 Most Popular New Posts of May 2016
My very first Mother’s Day post was the most popular new post of May 2016. E loved this cute emergent reader and insisted on reading it to me on Mother’s Day <3 The clip art is really cute, too!
You can never have too many letter mazes 😉 This is the second one I made for the letter M after this M is for Monkey version.
These cute puzzles are a great way to practice pre-primer sight words! The printable also includes two blank puzzles that you can use for other words you’d like to work on.
My Favorite New Post of May 2016
I’ve shared lots of letter mazes over the past year and a half. They’re super fun for anyone working on letter recognition. However, they don’t offer a challenge once a child has his or her letters down pat. E is at that stage, so I came up with the idea of extending the basic maze idea and adding a handwriting component: F is for Flag Handwriting Mazes!
There are two versions: trace the letter and fill in the blanks, and they both come in uppercase, lower case, and mixed case versions. E thought it was super fun to practice her handwriting in this way, and I have versions for more letters on the way.
