A Christmas Present

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….

I hope that you can use it in your classroom, homeschool, or for religious education. If you do, please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!!

 

 

Hear My Prayer

This past week in class, we worked on learning about prayer. It’s always such an interesting topic for my kids.

So often, they think that they can only pray kneeling.  They also think that you have to be silent when you pray.  They love finding out that they can stand up against a tree in the park and thank God for his amazing creation!!

To help them learn more about prayer, I created this prompt for them to draw their prayer….

HearMyPrayer byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

I also have a big set of these prompts available in my stores.  There’s a total of 16 pages and it’s a great deal at $3.  It’s great for a variety of ages/grades as there’s prompts to write, draw, or do both!!  You can find this full set at…..

All the Saints in Heaven

I meant to get this posted last night, but time just slipped right away.  There’s still plenty of time to use it though on Hallow’s Eve or on All Saints Day!!

AllSaintsHeavenWithJesus papercraft byElaineG SAMPLE

I have to say that this paper craft was a huge hit with my kids!!  They simply colored the 2 clouds, then they each picked out 4 saints to color.  The clouds are slightly overlapped and glued together and then the saints glued to the large cloud.  After that, we decorated them with cotton puffs and glitter!!

There’s a sample on my Instagram if you click here.  You’ll notice that the sample, we glued to a piece of construction paper.  If you don’t glue on construction paper, print the clouds on cardstock and the saints on regular paper.

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….
