Easter Egg Alphabet Match

PHEW!!  A little hectic today, but I still managed to get something created.  It’s a little basic, but should still prove useful to many of my readers.

This is a set of cards that feature an adorable bunny and chick with their Easter eggs.  The upper case letter is matched to it’s lower case letter.  They could also be used as flashcards, to make words, or other things.  I also created a storage box to keep them in so that no cards get lost!!

Gingerbread Man Math Mat

I’m back today with another FREEBIE offering for Christmas!!  Yes, I’m on a roll.  I don’t know what happened, but I’m glad it happened.  HAHA  I had such a dry spell and now I’m ready to go and have plenty of ideas….now I just need the time!!

Today, I have some adorable gingers to offer in the form of a math mat!!  This mat can be used for addition, subtraction, greater than, equal to, and less than.  All that has to be done is to put the proper symbol on the mat, then add the gingerbread man tokens to each cookie sheet.  Just like that, a math problem/equation is made!!

Also, there’s 2 worksheets to accompany the math mat.  They can be used with the math mat or on their own.  There’s one worksheet for addition-subtraction and the other one is for greater-less than-equal to.

Exclusive: Compound Hot Dogs

Ever so often, I plan to have an “exclusive” that I haven’t shared anyplace else!!  The main place that I share are my own Y!Groups or other ones that I’m a member of.  These “exclusives” won’t even be seen there!!

This stemmed from and idea that I had for my Y!Group, but I didn’t get it done on time.  Our theme was “hot dogs” and I knew I wanted something fun and unusual.  This is what I came up with!!  It’s a game for compound words, called Compound Hot Dogs

Each place setting card will have the image of a compound word.  The player will have to find the hot dog and hot dog bun with the 2 words that make up that compound word and place them on the plate.  This is a large set, but you only need to use as many as needed or the level of words that’s being worked on.  There’s also a worksheet to complete during or after the game….and the answer key!!

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

If you’re interested in “compound hot dogs”, please just…..

Please note that you will need BOTH parts of this, or you won’t have the complete game.  Either download is incomplete without the other!!

If you’re a hot dog lover, in need of compound word activies, or just going use this game for your homeschool, classroom, or other location, 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 to vote for my blog (as well as in the side bar under “vote or rate The Schoolhouse”).

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….

I made some Star Spangled Number Puzzles.  These are all items that one would probably see either on the 4th of July or affiliated with it.  These puzzles are for numbers 0-25.

I also made several jigsaw puzzles.  There’s some antique ones that are 8 and 12 pieces.  There’s also 2 each of some really pretty 4th of July images that I found.  Those are 24 and 48 pieces.

Here’s a sample of some of the items….

Let’s Have a Picnic!!

July is National Picnic Month.  It starts off the perfect way and the perfect time for a picnic.  And that great start is Independence Day!!  What’s better than celebrating the 4th of July with a cookout or picnic by the lake.

I’ve created a couple items to help celebrate National Picnic Month and get us ready for bbq-ing this summer and church picnics!!  First, there’s Ants on a Picnic Number Mats and we all know how pesky those ants can be!!  Ants are sorted onto the mats by the number indicated on the picnic basket.  You won’t be annoyed by these cute little ants though!!

Next, there’s 2 sets of Picnic Alphabet Writing Strips.  There’s a set for upper case….and a set for lower case.  I also made a sequencing puzzle called Sequence Teddy Bear’s Picnic.  It’s made from an adorable picture and they place the strips in order to complete the puzzle.

Finally, there’s some shadow matching cards.  These are What’s in the Picnic Basket? Shadow Match Cards.  There’s an image on the plate and it must be matched to the shadow of that image on the picnic basket.  What do you think it inside the picnic basket??

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