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!!


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!!




ARG!! It’s a Pirate’s Treasure, Matey!!

I’m just so overwhelmed with lesson plans that I haven’t created nearly as much as I wanted to.  However, I took a break long enough today to have a little fun with these adorable pirates.

This is a set of 3-part cards.  The numeral on the pirate’s map is matched to that number of jewels and the number word on the treasure chest.  ARRGGGG!!  There’s a bounty to be had by all mateys!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the pirate’s treasure….

This is a set of 2-part cards featuring -oo- words.  They come from various word families using the -oo- and some are long or short vowel sounds.  The image of the -oo- word is matched to the -oo- word.  See how fast and well they can be matched before the Oobleck gets you!!

Letter of the Week: Ll

The current Letter of the Week is Ll.  There’s a set of magnet sheets featuring llama and leaf.  I think they’re pretty cute too!!  Also, there’s new writing practice sheets with ladle and list.  Those are available in both fonts….ZB and DN.

Here’s a thumbnail collage of what I newly added to Letter of the Week…..

The letter Ll folder also includes the items that I previously made for Letter of the Week.  You’ll find the My Letter Ll Book in both fonts.  There’s also writing practice sheets and (Play-Doh) mats.  Which, also come in both fonts.  Finally, there’s a set of Ll letter tile mats which have been updated to include a word list so the kids can self-check.

Spooktacular Jigsaw Puzzle

This is made from the same Halloween scene that I talked about yesterday. This one is a jigsaw puzzle though.  Since it’s not extremely scary, I made it with few enough pieces that smaller kids could play too.  The spooktacular puzzle has 9 pieces!!

Spooktacular Strip Puzzle

I was playing around and put this scene together.  Then I found a background that fit the scene perfectly.  I tried to think about what exactly I could do with it.  I decided to stick with the basics and just make a strip puzzle.  This puzzle is counting by 5’s and is not only a spooky scene, but has spooky numbers too!!

Back to School Calendar Set

Today, the Schoolhouse went back to homeschool.  To celebrate “back to school”, I want to share some (back to) school theme items that I created last year.  The rest will come later this week, but first off, I have a large calendar set.  

All graphics used © Scrappin’ Doodles with permission.

This calendar set not only features numbers 1-31 for the dates, but also includes numbers 32-100 for those who count the first 100 days of school.  Additionally, there are “no school”, “birthday”, and “holiday” for date slots.  The calendar years are from 2010-2015 so they can be used in the future as well.  Also included in this set are strips for “yesterday was”, “today is”, and “tomorrow will be”.  They days fit perfectly on these strips or can be used alone.

Here’s a collage sample of some of the pieces in the calendar set….

If you’re interested in this back to school calendar set, please just…..

If you’re going to use this calendar set for your homeschool, classroom, or other location for back to school (or anytime during the school year), please leave a comment and let me know how you and the kids like it. I’d also appreciate it if you’d click the button below (as well as in the side bar under “vote or rate The Schoolhouse”).

Travel Fun & Games

I know that summer is quickly coming to an end, but you can’t tell it by the temperatures here!!  There’s also lots of people out there taking their family vacations or visiting family and friends.  To keep the kids busy in the car, I’ve created a couple simple printable activities.

Last year, I made a Travel Bingo game where the objects can be marked off as you find them on the trip.  There’s also calling cards, that someone could use to call off objects or they could be cut apart and the players draw objects….until BINGO is yelled!!

There’s a set of Travel Word Games where words are made from travel phrases.  There’s 4 different ones!!  I also made 2 versions of tic-tac-toe with a travel theme.  Finally, there’s a set of maps to choose from to color the states (or countries) that you visit or travel through on your summer journeys.

I have 2 more games in the works, but I don’t know if I’ll get them done or not.  Well, I will, it’s just a matter of when!!  Just so many things going on right now and I’m trying to keep up with it all.  Please check back to THIS post to see if there’s an update for me finishing up creating them.  If it’s not posted by Sunday, then I got overwhelmed and I’m not sure when they’ll be complete!!

Here’s a collage sample of some of the items for travel fun & games….
