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.

Curious George

I’m sorry for my long absence of not sharing any freebies.  I just haven’t been making much.  It saddens me to say that my FREE printables are showing up all over GigaTribe again.  No matter how many times I ask that people remove them, they just flat out refuse.  I have no inspiration to continue creating materials if they’re going to constantly be abused and no respect shown toward me.  For pity sakes, I offer them for FREE!!  All they have to do is join my group or visit my blog to get them and NOT put them on Giga.  It’s pretty simple really!!

Anyway, I’m back today with some materials for Curious George.  He was recently a theme in my group and I wanted to share with you what I made for them.  Not to worry though, I have plans for some reader exclusives!!

There is a set of 5×7 alphabet posters that were requested by one of my members.  There’s also a set of alphabet flashcards that have the upper and lower case letter on them.  They can definitely be used as more than just flashcards!!

You’ll also find a set of puzzles that feature horizontal and vertical lines, as well as triangles and squares.  Finally, there’s a magnification game that has the covers of Curious George’s 8×8 size books.  This one is a fun challenge, since some of the covers show very little difference between them!!

Clifford – The Big Red Dog

What kid doesn’t love Clifford the Big Red Dog??  I don’t think many!!  Today, I have a wide variety of Clifford materials for you.  I hope that you’ll find something that you can use and that the kids will enjoy!!

First up, there is a set of alphabet flashcards posters with the upper and lower case letter on each card and a set of flashcards posters that has the days and months on them.  There’s also a set of flashcards posters for 0-25 with the numeral and number word, as well as a set of US money posters with the front and back of each coin and the coin name.  The last set of flashcards posters is for colors and it features the color word with that color bone in Clifford’s mouth!!  All posters are 5 x 7 and could be used for large cards as well.

I created a set of 2-part cards for money using 4 coins for amounts less than $1 and a set for matching the colors of Clifford’s paw to the color word that Clifford and his friends are looking for.  There’s also a set of shape cards that can be used several ways.  They can be used to play concentration, “Go Fish”, “Old Maid”, or a variety of other things!!

Next is as set of clothespin cards for counting Clifford’s dog dishes or bones and a set for matching the lower case letter to Clifford’s upper case letter.  The final item is a set of word wall cards for Clifford and his friends.

Froggie Flashcards

Yes, I finally have some printables to share with you all!!  It’s been a long stretch, hasn’t it??  I do apologize, but I just had no fresh ideas and things got super crazy busy.  Most of it was good times and it just left little time for me to focus on much else.

A nice lady in my PPoT group asked me to make her a set of flashcards for Pre-Primer Dolch Sight Words and for numerals.  She had this little frog in mind, but I had to see if I could find him.  I did and got on my way to creating!!

In addition to doing the 2 sets of flashcards that she asked for, I also did a set of number words.  These are just exclusively for all of you, my readers and followers, for sticking by me when my offerings were slim to none!!

The numeral and number word flashcards are both 0-25.  There are 40 Pre-Primer Dolch flashcards.  Also, if anyone needs a different grade level or more numbers….or any other type of flashcards, please just let me know!!  Use the “contact The Schoolhouse” in the right hand column and just let me know what you need.
