Below you will find links to FREE resources for special holidays and/or historical events that happened in the month of May.

May 4th-Star Wars Day is May the Fourth, because of a famous quote from the hugely popular science fiction series blockbuster is “May the Force (Fourth) be with you”

 You can have a Star Wars themed day (or week)…..with Coloring pages, you can make a Lightsaber,  and lots of Crafts, Recipes, & Activities.
 This Star Wars themed Preschool Pack from Homeschool Creations is great for your little one to join in the fun. (P-K)
 It’s always fun to learn to read with these Star Wars themed Sight Word Activities from Learning 4 Kids (P-K, Y)
Some More Great ways to Celebrate Star Wars Day:
    • Watch any of the great Star Wars movies

    • Better still, have a Star Wars marathon, and watch two or three (or 4) of them.

    • Get out your laser sword and practice for the next invasion from the Evil Empire.

    • Send a Star Wars day Ecard- of course they have them!

    • Have a Star Wars costume party.

    • Learn some Star Wars Trivia, there’s no shortage.
