New Year’s Resolutions

I’m excited to join in this link up….

New Year's Resolutions Banner

I don’t typically make resolutions.  I just don’t do it and for the most part, I don’t follow through.  I’m pretty good at setting goals though and working toward them.  So, when I saw this linky, I was looking forward to joining up because I know these are a few of the things that I know I need to work on.  My favorite saying and what keeps me striving for more and knowing that making mistakes is alright (and I hope that those around me “get it”)….

Work in Progress 10

With that said, here’s my “resolutions” for 2016….

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!!

Update and an Easter Sale!

I know that I haven’t blogged in forever. I truly do apologize for that!!  When life gets busy, I tend to give up blogging to allow for making time for other things.  I honestly will make an effort to blog more and keep you all updated on what’s going on.  

I have a few things planned for the month of April, so be sure to keep an eye out here and follow my stores.  I just sent a note out to followers on TPT, so if you follow me there, you’ll see just a couple of upcoming events at The Schoolhouse.  The first thing is….

EasterSale1 FINAL

All of my Christian materials will be on sale for 15% off the entire Easter weekend.  The sale will run from 3 April to 6 April, so you’ll have plenty of time to stock up on those religious printables that you’ve had your eyes on!!  Also, as I always do with sales, I’ll be adding at least 1 new product during the sale.  Since this sale is on Christian items, that’s probably what I’ll be adding this weekend.

You can find this sale at….

Let’s Talk Money

Yes, we really need to have this talk….for a couple of reasons!!  HAHA

First, I made a new product for President’s Day.  It’s called Making Money with Washington and Lincoln and it’s a ffg (file folder game) using money values that those 2 presidents are on.  That means 1 cent, 25 cents, $1, and $5.  It’s a complete game and is perfect for a math center or group play.

If you’d like this game, you can find it for $2 at….

The Schoolhouse @ Teachers Notebook or TeachersPayTeachers

Next, I’ve been doing some evaluating on the products that I have for sale.  I’ve gone through TPT and TN and lowered the price on several of my products.  I hope that this will help you find more reasonable priced printables to use at home or in your class.

Colors of Halloween

I have something just for YOU today!!  I was trying to keep busy while waiting for my daughter to call this afternoon and this idea sort of hit me.  Besides, I’m in the Halloween “spirit”!!

This is a mini coloring book for colors.  On each page, there’s one thing that you’d find on Halloween and the main color that it is.  It has the frequent words of can, I, and see.  There’s also each color including gray, tan, and pink.  

Here’s a thumbnail view of a couple pages of the mini-book….

New Year….New Printables

2013

Well, now that 2013 is here and the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over, I’ll be getting back to creating some new printables!!  I had big plans for Christmas freebies for all of you, but I just couldn’t complete anything other than my 2 Elf on the Shelf items.  Family is so important to me and we really did have a great holiday season.  I know that I didn’t have much for you all and that my blog took a little hit without things being posted, but it was worth it to me in so many ways!! 

This weekend, I have several things going on, so it’ll be next week when I start creating and posting free materials again.  Also, next week I go back to teaching my religion class as Christmas Break will be over.  That means that I’ll be back to posting my weekly Bible Alphabet page.

Thanks for sticking by me and The Schoolhouse little blog!!
