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.

SpringTimeFFG byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

I also did a version of this called “Winter Time”. It’s a simple game to tell time to 5 minutes. Has extra time cards and movement/action cards.

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….

MyAngelClothespinCountingCards0-10 byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

Clip cards for matching the numerals 0-10 to the number word.

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!

 

If you’re interested in any of these, you can visit either of my stores and select the view as “most recent”.  Visit “The Schoolhouse” at TPT if you click here and at TN if you click here.

Ash Wednesday Fun and Learning

Last night’s lesson was all about Ash Wednesday and how it’s the first day of Lent.  Advent and Lent are always interesting concepts to teach the kids when it’s all about “waiting” and “preparing”.  At their age, they’re just ready for Santa and the Easter Bunny.  They soak up the information like sponges!!

AshWednesday-Ashes byElaineG 1SAMPLE

After our discussion about Lent, we focused on Ash Wednesday and did this activity page.  Since we attend mass as part of class on Ash Wednesday, it’s important the kids know all about the ashes so they know what to expect.  After that, we practiced for mass….several times!!  Our final activity was a little craft that I made for the kids.  They colored the pictures to look like themselves and then we took black paint and put a cross on the foreheads with their thumb.

If you’re interested in this, just click to….

To see the a few of the final projects, just click here to see them on Instagram.  You don’t have to have an account and it’s worth it because they’re just adorable for being 3-5 years old!!

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).
