I Am Special Activity

Last year, I did a really fun activity with my kids. They loved it then and they really loved it again this year. So, I just had to share!!

IAmSpecial ActivityPage byElaineG@TheSchoolhouse SAMPLE

In the big open space, they draw a picture of themselves. They need to see what makes them special like the color of their hair, skin, eyes, and so on. Of course, they’re little ones, so they’re far from perfect, but they sure are fun!!

There’s also an area to put stickers down with their name on them or glue letters down. There’s also a blank line for them to write their names. On the side, there’s a cute poem about being unique. Finally, on the side, they can also put their fingerprint under the magnifying glass. Why??  Because each of us has a fingerprint that is unique to only us!!  To do this part, we just used an ink pad.

Here are some photos my kids in action with this page this year.  You’ll notice that I forgot my stickers at home, so we made due and used letter beads!!

Creation Story Wheel

I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’ve been uploading several resources to my store. I’ve also just been participating in life!! It’s been awhile since I’ve offered any freebies, but now’s my chance.

We’re back to religious education as of last week. It was hectic, so I really didn’t have anything to share. This week however, we’re learning about creation. This is the project that I’m working on with my little ones….

TheDaysOfCreation StoryWheel byElaine@TheSchoolhouse 1SAMPLE

This story wheel is actually 2 wheels under one cover “wheel”. The first is to select the day of creation and the second is to identify what was created on that day. This project is perfect for learning or reviewing the days of creation.

I’be listed this for free at The Schoolhouse on TPT. If you’re interested in using this project for your class, just click to be taken to the….

40 Days of Lent

I know this is rather last minute, but I have a free printable for you to use at home or in your classroom for Lent.

40DaysOfLent ColorByNumber byTheSchoolhouse 1SAMPLE

I’m calling this a color-by-number, but it’s not really that.  LOL  Once space is colored in for each day of Lent.  Certain spaces are specific colors.  When completed at the end of Lent, it’ll be a picture that represents Lent/Easter.  There is a key so that you know what color each space should be colored.

If you’re interested in downloading this, please just click the cover image above!!

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.

Z is for Zacchaeus

Well here we are at the final Color & Write page of the Bible ABC’s.  I can’t believe that the religious education school year is over.  But it is….today!!  I’ve had such a great year and I had fantastic kids.  They really loved these alphabet pages and I hope that your kids have as well.

This week’s page is “Z is for Zaccaeus”. This coloring and writing page for Zaccaeus is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a Bible lesson on Jesus or Zaccaeus.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the yoke color and write page….

Y is for Yoke

Today, I normally would have posted the FINAL page to our Bible Color and Write ABC’s, but we didn’t have class last week.  The weather was just horrible and I literally lost count at how many times the tornado sirens went off.  Next week is our final religious education class for this year and it’ll also be the final post for these pages.

This week’s page is “Y is for Yoke”. This coloring and writing page for yoke is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a Bible lesson.

X is for (King) Xeres

Time is going so fast and it’s almost the end of the religious education year.  We have 3 more classes to go and 2 more letters of our Bible alphabet.  Amazing!!

This one is “X is for Xeres”.  This coloring and writing page for King Xeres is perfect for the Bible ABC’s, but could also be used with a lesson on Queen Esther or other Bible lesson.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the (King) Xeres page….

W is for Wise Men

It’s that time of the week and I’m here with my new Bible color and write ABC page!!

This one is “W is for Wise Men”. I absolutely love this page and the way hubby drew it.  He gave each one different head gear and clearly different gifts.   This page could also be used in a lesson for Christmas, Epiphany, or other religion lessons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the wise men page….

Easter Initial Letter Sort and Trace

I’m sorry I’m just posting this today. Hopefully there’s still time for you to use it….and there’s always next year!!

This is a set of cards to trace each letter of the alphabet.  As the letters are traced on one cloud, the image with the matching beginning letter is placed on the other cloud.  Please note, this is for initial letter….NOT necessarily initial sound!!  This is also religious based as each card has a cross in the center of the rainbow, so this might now be suitable for all classrooms.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the cards….

V is for Vine

Back from Spring Break and although I expected to be able to post some new printable before now, I’m here with the newest Bible ABC page!!

This one is “V is for Vine”.  This page features a very full grape vine for them to color.  Vine can also be used in a lesson for names of Jesus and other Bible review lessons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the vine page….

U is for Unleavened Bread

Another week and another color & write page for the Bible ABC’s.  I can’t believe that we don’t have many letter left this year!!

This one is “U is for Unleavened Bread”. This time, they get to color a round cake of unleavened bread and a stack of square pieces.  I hope that this page is not only good for you with the Bible alphabet, but also other lessons and reviews.

Here’s a thumbnail view of the unleavened bread sheet….
