Favorite Things: February

This month’s Favorite Things is all about the grade that you teach. I teach 4 & 5 year olds, which is usually PreK – Kindergarten. They’re the ones that nobody really wanted, but I do so love them!!

Here’s my Favorite Things about my littles….

FavoriteThings Feb16 - TheSchoolhouse I really wouldn’t trade my littles for anything!! They’re quite the crew each year and they keep me on my toes. I just love it when they come back and I get to see the changes in them. I do love being their first experience with many things!!

A Christmas Present

I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!

TheChristmasStory ColoringBook PREVIEW byElaineG

This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!

If you’re interested in these coloring pages, please just….

I hope that you can use it in your classroom, homeschool, or for religious education. If you do, please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!!

Hear My Prayer

This past week in class, we worked on learning about prayer. It’s always such an interesting topic for my kids.

So often, they think that they can only pray kneeling.  They also think that you have to be silent when you pray.  They love finding out that they can stand up against a tree in the park and thank God for his amazing creation!!

To help them learn more about prayer, I created this prompt for them to draw their prayer….

I also have a big set of these prompts available in my stores.  There’s a total of 16 pages and it’s a great deal at $3.  It’s great for a variety of ages/grades as there’s prompts to write, draw, or do both!!  You can find this full set at…..

I Am Special Activity

Last year, I did a really fun activity with my kids. They loved it then and they really loved it again this year. So, I just had to share!!

IAmSpecial ActivityPage byElaineG@TheSchoolhouse SAMPLE

In the big open space, they draw a picture of themselves. They need to see what makes them special like the color of their hair, skin, eyes, and so on. Of course, they’re little ones, so they’re far from perfect, but they sure are fun!!

There’s also an area to put stickers down with their name on them or glue letters down. There’s also a blank line for them to write their names. On the side, there’s a cute poem about being unique. Finally, on the side, they can also put their fingerprint under the magnifying glass. Why??  Because each of us has a fingerprint that is unique to only us!!  To do this part, we just used an ink pad.

If you’re interested in this activity page, just click to….

Here are some photos my kids in action with this page this year.  You’ll notice that I forgot my stickers at home, so we made due and used letter beads!!

I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’ve been uploading several resources to my store. I’ve also just been participating in life!! It’s been awhile since I’ve offered any freebies, but now’s my chance.

We’re back to religious education as of last week. It was hectic, so I really didn’t have anything to share. This week however, we’re learning about creation. This is the project that I’m working on with my little ones….
