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….

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…..

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….

Product Updates

Hello again!!

I know, my posts are few and far between. I try so hard, but blogging is just something that I’m not good at keeping up with. I’ll continue to try and I will get better as I get some balance.

I want to tell you about some new products in my stores.  Some educational materials….

AntsOnPicnicNumberMats byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

Simple counting mats for 0-20 using an ant toy or the ones included.

SeasaonlWritingPrompts byElaineG 1SAMPLE

These seasonal prompts are available in 2 styles for each of the 4 seasons for a variety of ages/grades. They will write and draw on each page!

 

Christian products….

TheFamilyTreeOfJacob chart&worksheet byTheSchoolhouse 1SAMPLE

There is a color and b&w version of this chart and the characters to add to the chart for the family tree of Jacob. It also includes a worksheet and answer keys.

 

And finally, my growing font collection….

OKieFontCollection1 SAMPLE-3

This is a set of 12 fonts, but it is a “growing” collection. That means that as I create new fonts, they’ll be added to the collection. Grab it now though because as fonts are added, the price will increase!

The Good Shepherd

Last week, we worked on The Good Shepherd in my religion class.  I enjoy teaching this one to the kids to help them understand how loved we are.  We are protected by his love and his son, Jesus, died for us.

GoodShepherdSheepMatch worksheet&coloringpage byElaineG SAMPLE

I made 2 things for my class to use.  The first is a worksheet.  It’s to match Jesus and his sheep to a sheep on the page.  A line is drawn to match the 2 and then colored to match each other.  The next item is a coloring page.  It’s Jesus among the sheep with the verse from John 10:11 (NAS).

A Note to My Followers

The Year in Review and What’s Coming in 2015!!

HappyNewYear2015

 

Hello to all!!

This is my first ever not to you, my followers.  I want to say thank you for following my store/shop.  I especially want to let you know I appreciate anyone who has made a purchase in 2014 or helped spread the word about The Schoolhouse!!

I’ve learned so much in my first 6 months as a seller.  I’d love to grow and expand The Schoolhouse.  Part of that growing is making sure that I have products that you need and can use.  Please feel free to contact me by using the ” Contact ‘The Schoolhouse’ ” button in the right hand column on this page.  I do accept requests and will make adjustments to products if at all possible.  I can’t always guarantee this, as it depends on what is needed.  I’ll do my best though!!

What’s coming in 2015….

  • All new products over $3.00 will be 25% off for the first 48 hours.
  • One freebie a month will be posted either in my store or on my blog.
  • At least one new Christian product will be added to the store each month.
  • Expanding into selling clipart drawn by my husband and possibly fonts with easy to use TOU.

I hope that you’re looking forward to the New Year as much as I am.  I want you to know that I appreciate all of you and I look forward to expanding The Schoolhouse with you!!

Baptism of Jesus

We’ve been having class for a couple of weeks now, but this is the first real craft that I’ve made for the kids.  I have to say that they loved it!!

BaptismOfJesus craft byElaine1 SAMPLE

This is a simple paper craft.  Once completed, the kids can put Jesus in the Jordan River with John the Baptist, dip him in the water, and baptize him.  This project does need adult supervision to cut the slit in the river.  There are complete directions and supply list included, along with the patterns.

If you’re interested in the paper craft, just click to….

You can find a picture of our finished project on Instagram here, here, and here.  Notice that we didn’t glue it on construction paper, which I really wanted to do.  I do recommend that you do it that way, as is given in the directions.

Clipart © Charlotte’s Clips, Dancing Crayon Designs, Graphics from the Pond, and Picture Paradise.  They are all sold on TPT and used with permission.

If you use my freebies, please leave me a comment.  I love to read your comments and input….and know how you use them.  I truly create by the feedback that I get!!
