wrote Lil Cherie Dresses Herself because I wanted my daughter
to be able to see her own likeness in a book. Being a homeschooling momma, of
course we don’t just read books, we turn them into adventures and units. With
the book being bilingual, it’s full of lessons. So, about a year ago, after my
daughter and I played with the book for a while I got the bright idea to
develop some worksheets and make a unit around some of the ways I had used the
book to teach my own daughter. Only thing is, I am not a certified teacher and
wasn’t 100% sure if what I had taught was correct. Also, computers are not my thing,
so the project was basically put on the back burner until one day I was having
a conversation with a lifelong friend and confidant who just so happens to be a
teacher! DUHHHHHH, Cherie! The teacher overseeing my daughter’s homeschool
It started with a casual question. “Do you know how to make worksheets?” Cherie asked me, almost hesitantly. I laughed to myself as I answered because as a teacher for over 15 years, I’ve made a lot of worksheets. To make sure we were on the same page, I emailed some old worksheets to Cherie. Her next question was more specific, “Can you make boxes on worksheets?” she asked. After some sketching of ideas and a chat, we felt we were talking about the same idea and I started on the worksheet that required boxes. I quickly emailed the rough draft to Cherie, who confirmed that those were, indeed, the type of boxes she had been picturing. One idea at a time, one page at a time, with each chat and every ongoing email, we began to create a noticeable pile of worksheets to go with Cherie’s children’s book, Lil Cherie Dresses Herself. Suddenly, we had something to share!
