Happy Birthday, Bert!!

Today, is Bert’s birthday.  Bert is best known as the best friend of Ernie on Sesame Street.  He likes to collect paper clips and bottle caps.   Bert has a pigeon called Bernice.  He has a twin brother, Bart, who’s a salesman. 

To celebrate Bert’s birthday, I’m offering a couple of printables featuring our serious friend from 123 Sesame Street.  First is “Bert Label the Color Cards”.  These cards feature Bert’s face in many colors and each one is to be labeled with the corresponding color word.  There’s also “Bb for Bert” sorting mats.  Items are sorted by objects that start with “Bb” or don’t start with “Bb”.  There’s a worksheet that accompanies this game for when the sorting is complete!!

Here’s a collage sample of some of Bert’s pages….

Don’t Forget Your Manners

I recently had Forgetful Jones from Sesame Street as a “theme” in my group to celebrate his birthday.  Since he forgot everything, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to create a game to teach and re-enforce manners.  This is a complete game with game board, cover, directions, tab label, and question cards.  There’s also a couple blank cards to add your own situation, question, or skill to enforce this topic.

Here’s a sample of some of the pages from this game….

Let’s Have a Luau

Summer is the perfect time to have a luau!!  I’ve created several printables that can be used in the classroom or at a party. 

This set includes several puzzles with various number of pieces.  The main object of the puzzles is a tiki.  There’s also an old Hawaii map postcard and other luau related items.  There’s also a full set of cards that can be used for memory/concentration with a storage box.

Here’s a collage of just some of the luau/tiki items available ….

As an added bonus, I created some puzzles with an aloha Mickey and some tiki Disney characters.  You can find those here.
