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….

The Good Shepherd

Last week, we worked on The Good Shepherd in my religion class.  I enjoy teaching this one to the kids to help them understand how loved we are.  We are protected by his love and his son, Jesus, died for us.

GoodShepherdSheepMatch worksheet&coloringpage byElaineG SAMPLE

I made 2 things for my class to use.  The first is a worksheet.  It’s to match Jesus and his sheep to a sheep on the page.  A line is drawn to match the 2 and then colored to match each other.  The next item is a coloring page.  It’s Jesus among the sheep with the verse from John 10:11 (NAS).

Clipart has Arrived at The Schoolhouse

Well, I told you that I hoped to be adding a clipart line to The Schoolhouse and that’s happened!!

ArmorOfGod PREVIEW byTheIllustrated Schoolhouse1

This first set is for the Armor of God.  They’re in PNG format, so they have transparent backgrounds.  It includes the color and black & white versions.  There’s a total of 16 pieces.  They can be layered to dress the boy and girl in the full Armor of God.  You can get them for $4.

I wish I could take credit for these great pieces, but my husband is the artist.  He drew them on paper and then we scanned them into the computer.  I colored them and formatted them.  We hope you’ll go by The Schoolhouse at TPT or TN to check them out!!

Baptism of Jesus

We’ve been having class for a couple of weeks now, but this is the first real craft that I’ve made for the kids.  I have to say that they loved it!!

BaptismOfJesus craft byElaine1 SAMPLE

This is a simple paper craft.  Once completed, the kids can put Jesus in the Jordan River with John the Baptist, dip him in the water, and baptize him.  This project does need adult supervision to cut the slit in the river.  There are complete directions and supply list included, along with the patterns.

If you’re interested in the paper craft, just click to….

You can find a picture of our finished project on Instagram here, here, and here.  Notice that we didn’t glue it on construction paper, which I really wanted to do.  I do recommend that you do it that way, as is given in the directions.

Vacation Bible School

I’ve been making VBS (Vacation Bible Schools) printables for the past several years.  I do it especially for a lady that’s in one of my Y!Groups.  I think I’ve only missed one year, and I just go too busy and ran out of time.   I believe that was last year for 2013.  I’m once again working on stuff for this year!! 

vbs-children

This is a list of all the posts that I’ve done for my VBS printables.  They’re all related to LifeWay VBS themes.  Here are all the VBS posts….

Round Up for VBS with the Saddle Ridge Ranch theme

VBS:  NYC – Big Apple Adventure with the Big Apple Adventure theme

V.B.S. – Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

V.B.S. – More Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

I’m also working on the Agency D3 theme for this year.  I’m hoping to have them uploaded and posted very soon.  I’m happy with how they’ve come so far and can’t wait to make them available to my group member….and all of you, my readers.

If you use any of these printables, please leave a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column of this blog.  I love to hear from those that use my materials and find out how they are used in class!!

Merry CHRISTmas!!

Merry-Christmas-Nativity

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!!




V.B.S. – More of Amazing Wonders Aviation

I’m back with some more AWA themed printables for VBS.  First though, I’d like to say THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments.  You’ve truly made me feel wonderful and you’ve reminded me why I spend so much time creating these for the kids.  It warms me to know that they will be used and hopefully enjoyed by the kids.

Now onto the new VBS printables!!  First up is a set of memory verse cards.  They can be used a number of ways.  One could line them up to complete the memory verse, or 2 copies could be printed and they could be used for concentration.  There’s also a number of other things that can be done with them.  The verse is from the NIV version of the Bible.

Next, I made a blank file folder game (ffg) that I called “The Race”.  This can be used for fun or to teach/review a skill.  All you need is die/spinner and player tokens.  I’ve provided the rest!!  There is a blank spot for you to fill in the directions for how you want the game played.  There’s also a set of cards that are blank for you to write in the skill or they don’t need to be used.  I also made an optional back for the cards too.

Last up is a shadow match game.  This one is more for fun or a time filler.  The airplanes and logos are matched to shadows on the map (game board).

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the parts to these Amazing Wonders Aviation printables for VBS….

V.B.S. – Amazing Wonders Aviation

Each summer, one of my group members conducts Vacation Bible School (VBS) at her church.  For a few years now, she’s asked me to create printables that they can use in the classroom because they have a limited budget and can’t purchase the whole package.  This year, their theme is Amazing Wonders Aviation through LifeWay and it looks like a great backdrop to teaching the kids God’s love.

They use the NIV version of the Bible, so any printables with the verse for this theme will come from that version of the Bible.  Also, I just want to note ahead of time that I will be adding a few more items to this and I’ll do another blog post to update what ever else I create.

For the memory verse, I made a cryptogram, fallen phrase, double puzzle, and letter tiles.  These are all puzzles geared more toward the older elementary age kids.  There’s also an AWA maze.

I created a set of banners and doorknob hangers.  You’ll find desk plates and name tags as well.  There’s also a set of basic VBS bookmarks. 

Finally, the things that I’m most excited about and proud of is a passport and tickets/boarding passes.  The kids can hand the teacher a boarding pass each day as they enter class.  Beforehand, the tickets can be filled in with the destination that the class is going during VBS.  There’s also a set of semi-completed tickets for those that don’t want to fill in all the information.  The passport can be stamped by the teacher as activities during VBS are completed or a lesson is done for the day.  I just can’t tell you how much I love these!!

**PLEASE NOTE:  When I printed the passport, it printed front and back perfectly on the 2 printers that I have.  One, prints front and back, while the other, the paper has to be flipped over and re-inserted.  I’m unable to give tech help on how your printer might print front and back, so if you have an issues, just print one-sided and then cut each page out and insert in the cover, then staple.**
