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….

Filling Requests

I had a couple of ladies contact me about updating some files of mine that they wanted to use of mine.  They had some special requests and I was thrilled to do it!!  I have to give them a huge “thank you” as well because they were so patient.  Since they were older printables, it took me awhile to locate the original documents….and then life just sort of happens too.  Not to mention the big blog move!!

Special Request clip

Anyways, here they are…..

First, I was asked to add the numbers 101-120 to my Patriotic Calendar Set.  It already went to 100, but because of changes in the curriculum, she now teaches to 120, so she needed the extra numbers.  To get to the original calendar set blog post, just click here.  If you’re interested in the added numbers, you can click here to download them.  

She also needed the Patriotic Counting Chart updated to 120.  The original went to 100 and if you’re interested in that, you can click here to get to the original blog post.  For the new chart to 120, just click here to download it.  

Next, I had a Clifford Calendar Set.  I was asked to make the days of the week the same size as the months.  If you’re interested in the original Clifford:  The Big Red Dog calendar set blog post, just click here to download.  If you’re interested in the larger days of the week, click here to get them.

**PLEASE NOTE: Clifford the Big Red Dog and Friends books, TV show, and characters are by Norman Bridwell, PBS, and Scholastic © Scholastic Inc. – I in no way lay claim to ownership of the character, images, books, or anything else pertaining to Clifford.**

That about covers it!!  I hope that this is what you ladies needed and that they just might benefit other readers as well.  If anyone else has any special requests, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Just be prepared to be as wonderful and patient as these ladies were as my family and life always comes first!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy the updates.  If you use my printables, please leave a comment or use the “contact” button in the right hand column.  I’d also appreciate it if you’d take a second to click the button below to vote for my blog.  I appreciate it and I continue to create by the feedback that I receive!!

Ten Commandments Lacing

Quite some time ago, I made a lacing card for the Ten Commandments.  It’s so hard to find them with the Catholic version, so I just used what I had.  Was rather a bummer because I couldn’t use them for my kiddos in class.  Then, not too long ago, I rediscovered this lacing card and shared them in my Christian Y!Group and I was asked to create a Catholic version.  I didn’t find anything suitable, so I had my fantastic hubby draw me the tablets and then I added the words.

Here’s a thumbnail view of of the lacing cards….

Patriotic Calendar and Desk Sets

It’s almost time to go “back to school”, so this week, I’ll be creating and sharing things to use in the classroom (or at home) as we all head back in that direction.  Most will be calendar sets in a variety of color themes, but if time permits, I’ll also be making some other materials.

I call this first set patriotic because I used a red, white, and blue background.  It’s a great background with all the patriotic colors in a fun swirl.

The calendar set includes dates 1-31 with extras like “no school”, “birthday”, and a couple of others.  There’s also a set of numerals for 32-100 for those that use your calendars as a 100’s chart.  There’s also all 12 months of the year, as well as years from 2012 to 2017, so you can use this set for years to come!!  Finally, there’s a set of days to use on their own or use with the yesterday was, today is, and tomorrow will be cards.

In the desk set is a set of cubbie tags and desk plates.  Both include a blank for you to use as needed.  There’s also a 1-100 counting chart.  I also made a set of “home tags” which list several methods that the children go home.  These can be attached to the desk, used as a neck tag, or attached to the backpack.  Had my daughters teacher used these in 1st grade, I wouldn’t have had to be panicked when my daughter didn’t get off the bus!!  Finally, there’s some incentive sheets.  These are larger in size and can be used for behavior, reading, returning homework, or a number of other things.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what the calendar set looks like….

FIXED: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This folder has been fixed and anyone wishing to download these files can now do so!! Sorry for the error, but 4Shared has a couple new features that I’m still getting used to. I had no problem accessing them now and you all should be able to as well.

Thanks so much Mary for letting me know there was an issue!! I surely don’t know unless someone brings it to my attention, so it’s appreciated.

MERRY, or Christmas Bingo!!

Unfortunately, there is no Nativity A Day again today.  It’s just been too busy of a weekend and I didn’t feel that I could properly do what I needed to do for a nativity printable.  Nativity A Day will definitely return tomorrow (over at Commotion from the Ocean of Life) and barring any unforeseen issues, will post everyday until the 23rd as planned.  Thanks for sticking with me and all the holiday craziness!!

I don’t post empty handed though!!  I have a game called MERRY, which is just a fun Christmas word for bingo.  There’s a big variety of cards, so you can have from 1-12 play.  That means that you can use if for all those fun holiday parties and family events this week!!  The clipart is some really cute Christmas curls and I just think they’re so fun and interesting.  I’ve had them a year and finally decided what to do with them!!  I did include calling cards that can be left as is, or cut apart to draw which object will be called next.
