prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those
young at heart  “April–A To Z” by Linda Martin Andersen

April—A To Z

(Can you find A To Z here?)

April Fool’s Day: 1

National Farm Animals Day: 10

National Teach Your Children To Save Day: 29

Zipper Day: 29

International Jazz Day: 30

Writing Prompts:

  1. What prank or April Fool’s joke has someone played on you? What have you played on others?
  2. Are you a good sport when someone plays a joke or trick on you?  How do you handle it?
  3. What farm animal do you wish you could raise in your backyard?  Why would you choose that particular one?
  4. Have you ever visited a petting zoo?  Tell about it.
  5. Are you good at saving money?  What plan works for you?
  6. Julie Bowe writes a friendship series of children’s books that mention a backpack with many zippers. Can you discover which title it is?  Name other stories that mention zippers.
  7. Would you rather wear zippers or buttons and why?
  8. Name different uses of the word “jazz.”  Choose one and write about it.

What will you celebrate in April? 

I have decided to try the Blogging From A to Z–April (2016) Challenge.

    Dear Linda,
    Sounds like fun! You get to take Sundays off! Cool.
    Enjoy yourself!

  2. Have fun with your A-Z game. Sometimes at night when I can’t sleep, I pray for people going through the alphabet. 🙂

    See you tomorrow fellow A to Zer!

  4. Good luck with the challenge. I wish I had the time to do it but perhaps next year.

  5. Linda, you provided great ideas again! I’m very good at saving money. I call my budget a spending plan. Near the end of the month…no money…no shopping. 😄 Glad you’re back. Praying for you guys. ❤️
