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….

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….

Mrs. Wishy Washy

Yes, I’m finally back!!  I know I haven’t posted in forever, but it’s just been plain busy.  I needed to take a break from blogging and focus on other things, but I’ve had so much going on, that getting caught up or relaxing wasn’t even part of it.  I’m here now though!!

mrs-ww-cover-DISCONTINUED

I had a member of my group ask me to make some printable for Mrs. Wishy Washy and I was happy to do that for her.  She’s a great lady and I consider her an online friend.  There’s one more thing that she’d like me to make, but not sure if or when I’ll get to it.  If I do, it’ll be a set of jigsaw puzzles for little hands.

But, for now, I have these to share with you all!!  There’s a set of alphabet flashcards and alphabet match 2-part card where upper case is matched to lower case.  I also made a set of kindergarten Dolch sight word flashcards.

You’ll also find a pull and retell the story printable.  It’s one of my favorites!!  There’s also a set of characters that can be used for stick puppets or felt story pieces.  Finally, there’s a set of word wall cards with all the characters and items from the story.

If you’re interested in any of these printables, please just click on the Mrs. Wishy Washy book cover above to be taken to the download folder.

Seuss CVC Word Families

I know that tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and that most people/teachers had that for their theme this week.  I’ve just been so busy that I couldn’t make things as fast as I wanted to.  Besides, it’s never too late for for some Seuss!!

This is a mat set for making CVC word families.  There’s a mat and then cards with word families and letters to make CVC words.  There’s also a worksheet to record the word family and the words created.

Looking for Dr. Seuss??

Are you looking for printables to use in your classroom, at home, or in your daycare to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss??  Maybe you just want some fun activities to keep the kids busy on the weekend or after school.  No matter the reason, I have what you need!!

I have lots of free printables to share with you.  In some of the links that I’m about to post, you might find some duplicates, but many won’t be.  Just take your time and browse around!!

On my blog, Commotion from the Ocean of Life, you’ll find a bunch of stuff for “Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss“.  Once upon a time, that’s where I used to share all my printables that I created!!

Next, some of you might remember the “Seuss-icle Followers Contest” that I held right here on this blog.  This contest lasted a week and I offered freebies each day.  Here you can find each of those posts and see just what I offered each day.

With luck and time, I’ll be creating some new materials this week.  Things have just been crazy busy and I’m barely keeping my head above the water right now!!  Keep your eyes open though and hopefully you’ll see something new featuring Dr. Seuss coming your way!!

The Jetsons

JetsonsNot long ago in my group, we had a character theme of The Jetsons.  I didn’t get a chance to make much, but I was able to complete a couple projects.

There are four jigsaw puzzles.  Each puzzle has 9 pieces, so they’re good for several ages/grades.  There’s also a set of four basic puzzles.  These work on their fine motor skills assembling these 4-piece puzzles.

All clipart from internet sources and believed to be public domain.

Fishing Penguins Count Their Catch

I have a new freebie for you today and it was created for a request from one of my group members.  She wanted a counting activity with penguins, so here it is!!

These are a set of counting mats from 0-20.  They feature adorable fishing penguins.  To make it fun and rewarding, use Goldfish Crackers to count out the number of fish that each penguin caught.  If you don’t want to do that, I included some printable Goldfish Crackers or you could use another manipulative such as fish erasers.  Each mat has the numeral and number word.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the mats in this set….

Snowy Ten Frame Match

It’s a new week and a new freebie!!  Is it me or is time going by really fast??  We’re already coming up on mid-month and we just started this new year!!

Today, I have a ten frame activity for you.  The snowflakes in the ten frame are counted and matched to the snowman numeral and number word.  I like to include both the numeral and number word because I really think it helps with association.  I did these with the numbers 1-20 so you can use as many or as few of the cards as needed.

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