Spring Break

It’s time for….

spring-break-logoat our little homeschool, religious education, and here at The Schoolhouse!!

Since there’s no class this week, I don’t have a new page for the Bible ABC’s to post and I’m just going to take a break to enjoy some quality family time.  I’ll return next week and hopefully have some great new ideas that I can turn into printables to share!!

Ash Wednesday

Ash-WedToday is Ash Wednesday and we celebrate as a class by attending mass.  Therefore, there won’t be a page for the Bible ABC’s today.  Please check back next week for the next letter in our Bible alphabet!!

Have a blessed Ash Wednesday and may you accomplish all your goals this Lent season!!

New Year….New Printables


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!!

Happy New Year!!

Blessed-New-YearI can’t believe that it’s already 2013.  Time sure is flying!!  I don’t like that it’s going by so fast, but I’m ready to see what’s ahead.

I want to thank each of my readers and those that follow along with The Schoolhouse.  I wish each of you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!!

Merry CHRISTmas!!


Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

~Luke 2:4-7

Merry CHRISTmas to all!!

Layers and Animals of the Rainforest

We had a “challenge” in my group for the rainforest theme.  I created this file folder game (ffg) for my members.  Players will label the 4 layers of the rainforest.  They will also sort animals into the 4 layers where they spend most of their time.  I wasn’t able to create a worksheet to accompany the game, but an answer key for the ffg is provided.

Here’s a thumbnail view of parts of the game….

If you’re interested in this game, just….

If you use this game, have any requests, or just want to let me know how you used them, please leave a comment and let me know. I’d also appreciate it if you’d click the button below to vote for my blog. (You can vote ONCE a day!!) I also have a “contact” button in the right column. I love feedback and I truly create by the input that I receive….thanks!!
