I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!

TheChristmasStory ColoringBook PREVIEW byElaineG

This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!

If you’re interested in these coloring pages, please just….

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.

Here’s a thumbnail view of one of the pages with cards….

Farm Theme

We recently had a Challenge:  Farm in my group.  I created several printables for my members for that event and I also want to share those printables with you, my readers.  These are all for a variety of ages/grades, but mostly younger kids.

First is a set of alphabet flashcards with a barnyard theme.  I have to say that the image is much larger than the font and I did this to be able to get the scene in.  I don’t think it sways from the use of the flashcards though.  Next is a “pin the pocket on the farmer” game.  This is great for a fun class activity or a farm theme kid’s party!!  There’s also a set of basic puzzles featuring farm animals.  The puzzles range from 2 to 4 pieces.

A request was made to make a chicken and egg matching activity, so I did number matching for 0-25.  The egg has the number word and the chicken has the numeral on it and they’re matched to each other.  There’s also a “counting the farm” activity.  The number of items in the farm scene can be tallied, graphed, or used in a ten-frame.  The final printable is a farm animal match-up.  It includes a barn mat where the real animal image is matched to a cartoon image of the animal.  They can also be labeled or matched with the animal name.

Here’s a thumbnaial sample of each printable….
