Favorite Things: December

Here’s just….

FavoriteThings-Dec15

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love nativities!! I have them in sizes from small to large. I don’t have any giant ones though!! Some of my small ones are just the holy family. Some of my big ones have several shepherds, the wise men, and the drummer boy. I love all of them. This is my favorite one….

Fave Nativity byTheSchoolhouse

One reason that I love this one is that it’s like a children’s play. Another reason is the quality of the pieces. Can you believe that the stable isn’t actually part of the set?? HAHA It’s a piece that I got someplace else and thought they worked together perfectly. What really sets this nativity though is what it sits on. It’s actually a tree skirt, but not just any tree skirt. My mom made it. She didn’t just make it, but she won 1st PLACE in a contest with it. I’m so proud of her and I’m honored that she entrusted such a beautiful made-with-love project to me. It’s the perfect addition to this nativity!!

Update and an Easter Sale!

I know that I haven’t blogged in forever. I truly do apologize for that!!  When life gets busy, I tend to give up blogging to allow for making time for other things.  I honestly will make an effort to blog more and keep you all updated on what’s going on.  

I have a few things planned for the month of April, so be sure to keep an eye out here and follow my stores.  I just sent a note out to followers on TPT, so if you follow me there, you’ll see just a couple of upcoming events at The Schoolhouse.  The first thing is….

EasterSale1 FINAL

All of my Christian materials will be on sale for 15% off the entire Easter weekend.  The sale will run from 3 April to 6 April, so you’ll have plenty of time to stock up on those religious printables that you’ve had your eyes on!!  Also, as I always do with sales, I’ll be adding at least 1 new product during the sale.  Since this sale is on Christian items, that’s probably what I’ll be adding this weekend.

You can find this sale at….

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.

Colors of Halloween

I have something just for YOU today!!  I was trying to keep busy while waiting for my daughter to call this afternoon and this idea sort of hit me.  Besides, I’m in the Halloween “spirit”!!

This is a mini coloring book for colors.  On each page, there’s one thing that you’d find on Halloween and the main color that it is.  It has the frequent words of can, I, and see.  There’s also each color including gray, tan, and pink.  

Here’s a thumbnail view of a couple pages of the mini-book….

Happy New Year!!

Blessed-New-YearI can’t believe that it’s already 2013.  Time sure is flying!!  I don’t like that it’s going by so fast, but I’m ready to see what’s ahead.

I want to thank each of my readers and those that follow along with The Schoolhouse.  I wish each of you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!!


Merry CHRISTmas!!

Merry-Christmas-Nativity

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

~Luke 2:4-7

Merry CHRISTmas to all!!




Bible ABC’s

This week, there won’t be a new page of the Bible Alphabet.  My class will be having their Christmas party tonight, so I won’t be doing an ABC page for class warm-up.  We’re also on Christmas Break for 2 weeks, so there won’t be a new page posted during that time.  Please check back after the first of the year when I’ll resume with new pages!!

 

 



Hanukkah Fun Pack

I know I haven’t been around much, but I hope that this was worth the wait!!  This is a “fun pack” for Hanukkah and it’s filled with activities for class, home, a party, or anyplace to keep little ones and adults busy.

This pack includes a word search, crossword puzzle, and a maze.  There’s also games like “Menorah”, which is checkers and “Dreidel”, which is tic-tac-toe.  There’s also the game of “Gelt”, which is a version of bingo!!  Finally, there’s several pages of lyrics to popular Hanukkah songs.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the pages included in this fun pack (click to enlarge)….
