It’s time for me to move on and see what else I can do for The Schoolhouse.  I’m hoping that it’ll be bigger and better things.  I hope to see you at the new location of The Schoolhouse!!

TheSchoolhouse - Weve Moved

See you there!!

School Bus Colors

The Schoolhouse Moved - Files

 

I was on a roll posting again, then a busy summer happened!! I’m hoping to be back, at least enough to post a little more frequent. My goal is once a week, if not twice. We’ll see how that goes!! HAHA We go back to HOMESCHOOL in a week and half. Can’t believe it’s that time already!!

Today, I have a couple sets of label cards.  They’re perfect for back to school with a cute school bus.  The first set is a blank set where the color of the bus is labeled with the appropriate color word.  The second set is already labeled with the color word and is for matching the label to the color word.

Here’s a sample of each type of card….

Blogoversary #2

Today marks this blog being 2 years old. I can’t believe it’s been that long already!!  I remember people thinking that I was crazy for starting another blog, but I really felt that all my printables needed to be separate from my daily life blog.  I stand by that as I mark today’s blogoversary!!

Pet Vet

The Schoolhouse Moved - Files

 

In my group, one of our summer themes is prop boxes.  Dramatic play is so important in the development of children.  My daughter loved all things “grown up” and would play all sorts of these dramatic play things.

One of her favorites was playing vet, which she still intends to be!!  I made to exam sheets or record sheets for her.  One was made in 2009 and one in 2010.  Yes, she was still playing “grown up” just a couple years ago.  She had a cash register (real one), so she loved to do anything and everything with it.  She loved to ring up her customers!!

Anyway, these are 2 of the sheets that I made for her and I want to share them with you to use for your little ones.  Each one has a choice of type of animal, reason for visit, and pet’s name.  After that they differ and can be used for different functions.  I hope that your kids get as much enjoyment as my daughter did!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of the sheets….

Alpine Animals

The Schoolhouse Moved - Files

 

My group is working it’s way through each habitat/biome and the animals that live there.  This has been really informative and fun.  This is the second set of cards in the set that I’m making for each habitat/biome.  The first set was for rainforest animals.

This set is for alpine animals.  I found some new ones that I didn’t know belonged.  It’s been educational for me making these as it is for the kids to use them!!  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….

Mrs. Wishy Washy

The Schoolhouse Moved - FilesYes, I’m finally back!!  I know I haven’t posted in forever, but it’s just been plain busy.  I needed to take a break from blogging and focus on other things, but I’ve had so much going on, that getting caught up or relaxing wasn’t even part of it.  I’m here now though!!

Mrs WW cover

I had a member of my group ask me to make some printable for Mrs. Wishy Washy and I was happy to do that for her.  She’s a great lady and I consider her an online friend.  There’s one more thing that she’d like me to make, but not sure if or when I’ll get to it.  If I do, it’ll be a set of jigsaw puzzles for little hands.

But, for now, I have these to share with you all!!  There’s a set of alphabet flashcards and alphabet match 2-part card where upper case is matched to lower case.  I also made a set of kindergarten Dolch sight word flashcards.

You’ll also find a pull and retell the story printable.  It’s one of my favorites!!  There’s also a set of characters that can be used for stick puppets or felt story pieces.  Finally, there’s a set of word wall cards with all the characters and items from the story.

If you’re interested in any of these printables, please just click on the Mrs. Wishy Washy book cover above to be taken to the download folder.

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….

As I stated earlier though, our religious education year is over with, so I won’t be posting any more.  The series is complete!!  I’m looking forward to taking the time this summer though and make as many new and original printables as I can.  I hope that you’ll come back often to pick them up!!

Rainforest Animals

 

 

The Schoolhouse Moved - FilesWe just had a month long theme in my group for habitats.  Additionally, monthly we having animals by biome.  This week we focused on rainforest animals.  I decided to make some rainforest animal cards.

These cards have many uses.  They are Montessori inspired and I used images of real animals.  The cards could be used for flashcards.  Or, they could be 3-part cards where you print out 2 sets and cut one of them apart and match them up to the full card.  They could also be used for memory match or a number of other ways.

All the cards are the same format.  Here’s a thumbnail view of one of the cards….

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.

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