Spring Break

It’s time for….

spring-break-logoat our little homeschool, religious education, and here at The Schoolhouse!!

Since there’s no class this week, I don’t have a new page for the Bible ABC’s to post and I’m just going to take a break to enjoy some quality family time.  I’ll return next week and hopefully have some great new ideas that I can turn into printables to share!!


Ash Wednesday

Ash-WedToday is Ash Wednesday and we celebrate as a class by attending mass.  Therefore, there won’t be a page for the Bible ABC’s today.  Please check back next week for the next letter in our Bible alphabet!!

Have a blessed Ash Wednesday and may you accomplish all your goals this Lent season!!

New Year….New Printables

2013

Well, now that 2013 is here and the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over, I’ll be getting back to creating some new printables!!  I had big plans for Christmas freebies for all of you, but I just couldn’t complete anything other than my 2 Elf on the Shelf items.  Family is so important to me and we really did have a great holiday season.  I know that I didn’t have much for you all and that my blog took a little hit without things being posted, but it was worth it to me in so many ways!! 

This weekend, I have several things going on, so it’ll be next week when I start creating and posting free materials again.  Also, next week I go back to teaching my religion class as Christmas Break will be over.  That means that I’ll be back to posting my weekly Bible Alphabet page.

Thanks for sticking by me and The Schoolhouse little blog!!


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!!




Layers and Animals of the Rainforest

We had a “challenge” in my group for the rainforest theme.  I created this file folder game (ffg) for my members.  Players will label the 4 layers of the rainforest.  They will also sort animals into the 4 layers where they spend most of their time.  I wasn’t able to create a worksheet to accompany the game, but an answer key for the ffg is provided.

Here’s a thumbnail view of parts of the game….

Symbols of the U.S. from A-Z Flashcards

Here’s the second part of the project that I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but just finally got working on it.  The first part was a set of 5×7 posters and this is a set of flashcards.

This is a set of flashcards that feature symbols of the United States. There is one for each letter of the alphabet. I did have to get creative with “X”, so please no negative feedback. You can choose not to use it or replace it with something of your choice.  These have a few different images than the posters do to add some variety to them!!

There are 4 sets of flashcards. Included is one set each for Zaner-Bloser manuscript and cursive. You’ll also find one set each for D’Nealian manuscript and cursive. They can be identified by ZB or DN in the file name. If it’s cursive, it’ll also include that in the file name.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the flashcards….

I hope that you’ve enjoyed the posters and flashcards featuring the great symbols of the United States.  This is one my favorite projects and I regret that it took so long for me to do, but I’m thrilled that they’re now done.  If you missed the 5×7 posters, you can find them here.

Mr. Potato Head NFL Memory

I was filling a request for a group member to create Mr. Potato Head items when I came across these great NFL themed Mr. Potato Head‘s!!  I just loved them and knew I had to do something with them.

I ended up making a set of memory cards with the Mr. Potato Head for each team in the NFL on the cards.  I ran into an issue of not being able to find an image for 2 of the teams.  They are the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  However, the 30 other teams are represented!!  I also created a storage box to keep the cards in.

Mr. Potato Head © Hasbro,  PPW Toys and licensed by the NFL.  Images and backgrounds from internet sources and believed to be public domain, unless otherwise noted.  Please note that I lay no claim to ownership of Mr. Potato Head, the NFL, or anything pertaining to them.  These printables are for educational purposes only!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the cards and the storage box….

To get the memory cards and storage box, please just….

Just a note that if you happen to find an image of either or both of these teams, I’d be more than happy to create cards for them.  Just use the contact form in the right column to let me know that you have the images or where I can find them and I’ll get the cards made right up!!
