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!!
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.

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!!
If you use this page, please leave a comment and let me know if your kids enjoyed it as much as mine did!!
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….
This story wheel is actually 2 wheels under one cover “wheel”. The first is to select the day of creation and the second is to identify what was created on that day. This project is perfect for learning or reviewing the days of creation.
I’be listed this for free at The Schoolhouse on TPT. If you’re interested in using this project for your class, just click to be taken to the….
I’ll post photos later of my kids making this in class. I quite often share photos on Instagram of my kids in action. If you don’t already, please click here to follow me on Instagram.
Please don’t forget to leave some feedback if you download…..thanks!!

I know, my posts are few and far between. I try so hard, but blogging is just something that I’m not good at keeping up with. I’ll continue to try and I will get better as I get some balance.
I want to tell you about some new products in my stores. Some educational materials….
Simple counting mats for 0-20 using an ant toy or the ones included.
I also did a version of this called “Winter Time”. It’s a simple game to tell time to 5 minutes. Has extra time cards and movement/action cards.
These seasonal prompts are available in 2 styles for each of the 4 seasons for a variety of ages/grades. They will write and draw on each page!
Clip cards for matching the numerals 0-10 to the number word.
There is a color and b&w version of this chart and the characters to add to the chart for the family tree of Jacob. It also includes a worksheet and answer keys.
And finally, my growing font collection….
This is a set of 12 fonts, but it is a “growing” collection. That means that as I create new fonts, they’ll be added to the collection. Grab it now though because as fonts are added, the price will increase!
If you’re interested in any of these, you can visit either of my stores and select the view as “most recent”. Visit “The Schoolhouse” at TPT if you click here and at TN if you click here.
I know this is rather last minute, but I have a free printable for you to use at home or in your classroom for Lent.
I’m calling this a color-by-number, but it’s not really that. LOL Once space is colored in for each day of Lent. Certain spaces are specific colors. When completed at the end of Lent, it’ll be a picture that represents Lent/Easter. There is a key so that you know what color each space should be colored.
If you’re interested in downloading this, please just click the cover image above!!
Last night’s lesson was all about Ash Wednesday and how it’s the first day of Lent. Advent and Lent are always interesting concepts to teach the kids when it’s all about “waiting” and “preparing”. At their age, they’re just ready for Santa and the Easter Bunny. They soak up the information like sponges!!
After our discussion about Lent, we focused on Ash Wednesday and did this activity page. Since we attend mass as part of class on Ash Wednesday, it’s important the kids know all about the ashes so they know what to expect. After that, we practiced for mass….several times!! Our final activity was a little craft that I made for the kids. They colored the pictures to look like themselves and then we took black paint and put a cross on the foreheads with their thumb.

To see the a few of the final projects, just click here to see them on Instagram. You don’t have to have an account and it’s worth it because they’re just adorable for being 3-5 years old!!
