Symbols of the U.S. from A-Z Posters

This is a project that I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but just finally got working on it.

This is a set of 5×7 posters 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.

There are 4 sets of posters.  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 the posters….

If you’re interested in the posters, just….

I plan on having a set of flashcards similar to these in the next couple of days.  That way, in a smaller size, there will be more uses for them and they could also be used for games.

If you use any of my printables, have any requests, or just want to let me know how you used them, please leave a comment and let me know. I’d also appreciate it if you’d click the button below to vote for my blog. (You can vote ONCE a day!!) I also have a “contact” button in the right column.  I love feedback and I truly create by the input that I receive….thanks!!

Mr. Potato Head

Today, I have lots of printables for home or the classroom featuring Mr. Potato Head.  There’s even a few Mrs. thrown in with it!!

First up, there’s a set of 5×7 posters.  These include money, upper/lower case letters, numeral/number word, and colors. 

There’s one set of flashcards for days of the week and months of the year.  Mr. Potato Head’s face is used for a set of “label the color” cards.  Mr. Potato Head as Superman and Mrs. Potato Head as Wonder Woman are a set of shape matching cards with a storage box.  These are matching the shape to the shape word.  Finally for the cards, there’s a set of alphabet clothespin cards to match the lower case letter to the upper case letter that Mr. Potato Head is holding.

You’ll also find a set of banners featuring Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.  These could be used for a themed party or to decorate your classroom!!  To go along with that, there’s a large set of bingo cards featuring Mr. Potato Head (and a few Mrs. Potato Head) dressed in fun ways.

Lastly, there’s a set of memory cards that I previously shared in another post.  These feature Mr. Potato Head wearing the gear of each of the NFL football teams.  However, there are 2 teams missing as he wasn’t available that way or there’s no images available.

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!!
