Let’s Talk Money

Yes, we really need to have this talk….for a couple of reasons!!  HAHA

First, I made a new product for President’s Day.  It’s called Making Money with Washington and Lincoln and it’s a ffg (file folder game) using money values that those 2 presidents are on.  That means 1 cent, 25 cents, $1, and $5.  It’s a complete game and is perfect for a math center or group play.

If you’d like this game, you can find it for $2 at….

The Schoolhouse @ Teachers Notebook or TeachersPayTeachers

Next, I’ve been doing some evaluating on the products that I have for sale.  I’ve gone through TPT and TN and lowered the price on several of my products.  I hope that this will help you find more reasonable priced printables to use at home or in your class.

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!!

The Long Cold Winter

I’m back after a very long “break”!!  We had an absolutely crazy and hectic holiday season.  Then after the first of the year, we all got sick.  We had a very bad bronchitis that had the whole family down for the count.  We still have a cough, but we’re much better.

In my “down time”, I updated a ton of my files that I’ve created.  I had more than I remember and still have plenty to do.  I’ve really enjoyed finding all these things that I’ve made and can’t wait to share them here!!  Since today is Groundhog Day and he saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter, I decided I’d share my winter materials.  On top of that, here in OK, we had about 3″ of ice and that’s under 6″ of snow.  Crazy!!

Winter Badge

Here’s a list of the printables that you’ll find in the winter file….

  • 6 Coins Winter Fun Puzzle Cards – Match the amount of the 6 coins with the amount on the matching puzzle piece.
  • Winter Fun and Signs of Winter Mirror Cards – These work on symmetry skills.
  • Snowball! – This is my winter version of checkers.
  • Winter Fun CVC Puzzle Cards – Match the CVC word to the image of that word.
  • 3 Sets of Snowman Clothespin Cards – The cards work on matching shape to shape word, counting and matching the number of snowflakes to the numeral, and matching the color to the color word.
  • Winter Kids 3-Part Cards – Match the numeral, number word, and the amount of snowflakes.
  • Snowflake Shapes 2-Part Cards – Match the snowflake shape to the shape word.
  • Snow Fun Magnified – Use a magnifying glass to match the miniature image to the full size.
  • Winter Bingo – This is a bingo game for numbers 1-10.

If you’re interested in any of these printables, just click the image above.  You’ll be taken to the folder that contains all these files.  You can download all of them or just the ones that you want.

The clipart and graphics are from various sources.  Some of the artists are Denyse @ Scrappin’ Doodles, Katie Dupree, Graphics Factory, and Annette @ Kuntry Graphics.  Other images from internet sources and believed to be public domain and they are used for educational purposes without profit.

Would You Be Willing To Pay??

I recently found some clipart that I like and really want to use it in some of the printables that I create.  The problem is, it’s not allowed to be at all for freebies.  I’d like to know if you’d be willing to pay a small fee (say 50¢) per printable created using these graphics.  It’d be my typical materials that I create and I wouldn’t size anything down or try to make extra.  Payments would be made via PayPal and you’d receive the item by e-mail within 24 hours.  I just need to charge something to so that I’m not violating the TOU of the artist and her clipart.

Thanks for voting!!



Christmas Printables

I’m working on some new Christmas materials to share with you all, but it’s taking so much time and I’ve just been so busy.  I’m sure that you can relate, as I’d be willing to be that you all have a lot going on too.  In the meantime, you can see the previous Christmas freebie printables that I’ve shared.

Santa with list and bag

If you’re looking for nativity ideas, please look here.  There’s 2 pages worth of things that I’ve shared in the past.  If you’re just looking for general Christmas, you can see those here.  There’s a few nativity that showed up on this list as well.

Also, last year when I did my “Nativity A Day”, I shared them on my personal blog.  You can find nativity printables here.  There’s more than a page of them.  For basic Christmas prinables, there’s several for you to look at.  You’ll find Christmas printables here andsome 12 Days of Christmas here.  If you read through this, you’ll find several Christmas materials.

I hope this keeps your kids and family busy having fun and learning for now.  There’ll be some new Christmas printables coming soon.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you find something that you can use.

If you use any of these freebies, please leave a comment and let me know or share pictures of your kids in action with them.  I’d also appreciate it if you took the time to click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

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

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

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.

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

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….
