Flippin’ for Colors

Here’s a new freebie for all of you, my readers.  There’s ONE catch though….

This is available only for a limited time!!  I don’t know when I’ll remove it, so grab it while you can!!

This is “Flippin’ Out for Colors” cards.  They have multiple uses, but they all work on colors.  You can cut them out and mount them inside a file folder and the player will then place the color label in the correct space.  You can use them for memory match/concentration by printing off 2 of each card and laminating them with the color words on them.  They can also be used as label cards so the child can label each card with the correct color of the sea shell.  Finally, they can also be used as flashcards by mounting the correct color word in the space or on the back so they can self-check.  The color words also come in 2 styles….black font and the color font.

Here’s a sample of the cards….

Chaparral Animals

My group was working on biomes.  This has been really informative and fun.  I started posting them before, but got sidetracked.  I’m going to be posting these again ever so often to complete all the habitats.

This set is for chaparral animals.  This habitat/biome is also known as scrub.  I found some new animals that I didn’t know belonged.  It’s been educational for me making these!  These cards are Montessori inspired and use real images.  They can be used for flashcards, 3-part cards, or many other things.

Alpine Animals

My group is working it’s way through each habitat/biome and the animals that live there.  This has been really informative and fun.  This is the second set of cards in the set that I’m making for each habitat/biome.  The first set was for rainforest animals.

This set is for alpine animals.  I found some new ones that I didn’t know belonged.  It’s been educational for me making these as it is for the kids to use them!!  These cards are Montessori inspired and use real images.  They can be used for flashcards, 3-part cards, or many other things.

Rainforest Animals

We just had a month long theme in my group for habitats.  Additionally, monthly we having animals by biome.  This week we focused on rainforest animals.  I decided to make some rainforest animal cards.

These cards have many uses.  They are Montessori inspired and I used images of real animals.  The cards could be used for flashcards.  Or, they could be 3-part cards where you print out 2 sets and cut one of them apart and match them up to the full card.  They could also be used for memory match or a number of other ways.

All the cards are the same format.  Here’s a thumbnail view of one of the cards….

Snowy Night Alphabet Match

It’s time for a freebie!!  This one features a beautiful background with cute snowman and matching snowflakes.  Seems fitting for this time of the year!!

This game is Snowy Night Alphabet Match.  For this file folder game (ffg), the snowflakes with the slower case letters are matched to the snowmen with the upper case letters.  As the child becomes more proficient with matching them, you could use a timer to see how quickly they can make their matches.

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

Shelf Elf Counting

We’re having so much fun with our Elf on the Shelf, that I just had to make another freebie for you all!!  I know I had plans to do more, but with everything going on, I just wasn’t sure I was going to get any done.

This game has several possibilities.  For this one, I left the elves blank and made numbers from 1-100 to place on the elves.  One shelf of elves can go up to 25, so if printed 2 per page, you could use it for counting to 100.  It can just be a matter of placing in numerical order or even skip counting.  There’s a variety of ways that these little shelf elves can be used for number games!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of what this game looks like….

Shelf Elf Alphabetical Order Fill-In

It’s time for a Christmas freebie printable!!  This is the first year that my family has done the Elf on the Shelf and we’re having a great time with it.  Even though my daughter is a teen, she’s playing along and looks for him every morning.  How many of you have an Elf on the Shelf at home or in the classroom??

Well, I decided to create a couple printables for this cute little character.  This is just one of what I’m hoping will be at least a couple more.  This one was a complete thought and I was able to finish it up between the hectic holiday schedule!!

For this game, the directions say that the elves have lost their space on the shelves.  In order for them to get their spot back, they must be placed in alphabetical order by filling in the blanks between the elves already sitting on the shelf.  So the elves fit on the shelves better, I’d recommend cutting them out instead of the whole boxes.  For little hands, cutting the whole box might be more convenient.

Baby Bubble Shapes

Today, I have another game from the depths of my files!! I was so happy when I found this one and the previous one because I remember when I made this one and how much I loved these adorable little tub babies!!

For this file folder game, shapes filled with tub babies and bath items are matched to shapes floating in the bubbles on the game board.  This one will take some ink because I put the background behind the objects as well as the shapes so that when the game board is filled in with all the proper shapes, it also fills in the missing spaces and fills in the bubbles.  I don’t know if that makes sense or not!!  HAHA

Babies, Bubbles, Quacks, and Shapes

Today, I have something from the depths of my files!!  This one is what could be considered a “classic” in the printables world.  I was so happy when I found it because I remember when I made this one and how much I loved these adorable little tub babies!!

For this file folder game, each baby in a tub has a shape on it.  The shape word that’s on the rubber ducky is matched up to the baby in the tub that it belongs to.  I also added the shape words of rhombus and ellipse for those that don’t use diamond or oval.

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.

Around the Pirate Ship

I have another pirate game for you, mateys!!

This one is Around the Pirate Ship and it’s a file folder game (ffg) for adding or subtracting to 10.  Players start on the space and then add or subtract to get the sum to finish the problem.  To do so, they’ll place an addition or subtraction sign in the black spot on the game board.  1 or more players can play and there’s optional treasure chest tokens to keep track of how many signs were placed correctly.

Ice Cream Cones

I thought that I’d cool things down today since it’s so hot outside!!  These are a couple of printables that I made last year and thought that it was time to share them.

First up is a set of 2-part cards for color matching.  The scoop of ice cream is matched to the color word on the card.  For all of them, I used actual ice cream flavor images  to make these.  One of them is sherbert, but I couldn’t find ice cream!!

The next item is a set of mats for matching contractions to their words.  There’s a total of 5 mats that can be used separately or together.  The ice cream scoop has the contraction, and the mat has the cones with the contraction words.

Clipart and graphics from personal source.  Some also from internet sources and believed to be public domain or samples and copyright/watermark remains in tact.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the ice cream cone printables….
