Winter Freebie Printables

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted since the new year.  I’ve just been crazy busy getting ready for a big event in my life and I’ve had so much to make sure was ready for my family and my group.  But I’m back for tonight and I’m not just going to share one, but several!!

First up is Winter Kids 3-Part Cards.  These are sort of like a puzzle where you match the number word, the number of snowflakes, and the numeral.  These cards can be found here.  In this folder, you can find Snowflake Shapes.  They’re a set of 2-part cards to match the shape and shape word.  There’s also a storage envelope included.

I also have 2 sets of mirror cards.  The kids will hold a mirror up along the dotted line to finish the image.  This teaches symmetry.  They are Signs of Winter and Winter Fun.  I also have a checkers game that I call Snowball and it’s played just like regular checkers is, but it has a fun winter theme.

There’s Snow Fun Magnified which can be found here.  They will use a magnifying glass to identify the miniature images, then place the full size image of that miniature in the box.  6 Coins Winter Fun can be found in this folder.  This is a set of puzzle cards where the kids add the amount of 6 coins, and then match it to the puzzle card with that amount. 

That’s it for now, but that’s a lot of fun and games for the kids on these cold winter days.  That is, unless you’re warm for this time of year!!  I hope that you and the kids enjoy them.  I’m not sure when I’ll be back with more printable freebies.  I expect I’ll be away for a week, but if all goes well, maybe sooner.

Reason for the Season Sizing

Today is my sixth day of Nativity A Day and I have another new creation for you.  This new printable is a sizing activity.  There are a set of 5 nativity scenes.  Each scene is sorted onto mats for small, medium, and large.  All the scenes can be sorted, or just one at a time.

Children’s Nativity Jigsaw Puzzles

From now today until 23 December, I’ll be offering a FREE printable on either this blog or my family life blog.  They will all be nativity themed, unless I come up with some brilliant idea that I just HAVE to do and share that day.  I’ll be creating them for a variety of ages/grades, so I’m hoping to have all the kids covered for nativity activities this CHRISTmas season.  So please, be sure to check back everyday for a new FREE nativity printable and if it’s not here, go to Commotion from the Ocean of Life  to find your FREEBIE for that day.  Remember, my plan is one a day,but sometimes life interferes with the best of intentions and you may not find them released at the same time each day!!

My first offering is a set of nativity jigsaw puzzles.  They range from 4 to 6 to 8 to 12 pieces.  They all feature children’s nativity pieces or they’re nativities that feature children in them.  There are 6 jigsaw puzzles in this set in total.

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!!

Winnie the Pooh

In my group, we recently did an author study of A. A. Milne, which meant doing all things Pooh!!  I felt really creative with Winnie the Pooh and I made several items to go along with this theme.  And if you love Pooh, you of course, have to love all his friends too!!

Included in this Winnie the Pooh & Friends folder are “Pooh & Friends Letter Tile Mats”.  Kids can spell out each of the characters names.  There’s also some “Winnie the Pooh & Friends Cards” and a storage box.  These can be used for concentration, Go Fish, or even Old Maid as there’s an extra card to be the “Old Maid”.  You’ll also find a variety of Winnie the Pooh shape jigsaw puzzles.  These are great for any age and so fun with all of the favorite characters!!

I also made a board game or file folder game (ffg) called “Hundred Acre Wood”.  This one features Pooh & Friends in scenes on the game board with hunny pot spaces to add your own skill.  Can also just be played on family game night!!  This is a compete game with a die, player tokens, and blank cards with optional card backs.

You’ll find some “Winnie the Pooh & Friends Copy-a-Picture”.  What a fun way to work on art skills!!  After the picture is copied, it can be colored for added fun.  There’s some “Winnie the Pooh & Friends Complete the Pattern”.  These strips are in AB, ABC, AAB, ABB, AABC, ABBC, and ABCC patterns.  Finally, I’ve made “Pooh’s Hunny Pot Shape 2-Part Cards”.  Pooh is looking in his cabinet for his shape hunny pots and the shape word in the cabinet has to be matched to the shape hunny pot!!

Here’s a collage sample of some of the materials in this folder….

A 4th of July Gift

Today, I have an “Exclusive Reader Gift” for the 4th of  July!!

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….

If you’re interested in this “Exclusive Reader Gift”, please just…..

As an added bonus, this folder also contains 5 files that I created last year.  They’re all a fireworks theme and perfect to go along with this Gift to my loyal readers….and my new ones too!!

I’m working on another project to share as part of this Reader Gift.  I don’t know when it’ll be completed.  I think it’ll be worth the wait though!!  So, please check back to this post for an update to let you know when it’s available!!

If you’re celebrating the 4th of July….or going use these games 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 buttons below (as well as in the side bar under “vote or rate The Schoolhouse”).

 

 





UPDATE:  I was able to finish my other Reader Gift.  I’m happy with how it turned out and I hope that you can use and enjoy it as much as I did making it.  My last item is Patriotic Word Writing Strips.  I made them with a tracing font, but they could also be used for a word wall as well.

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….

Superman

Superman first appeared was June 1938.  His first appearance was in Action Comics #1.  If you’re intrested in learning more about Superman, check out Wikipedia and Superman Homepage.  

In celebration of his “birthday”, I’ve created a couple printables.  These could easily be used in the classroom, homeschool, or gifts and games for a party theme.  There’s a set of jigsaw puzzles that vary in the number of pieces and some really great images were used to create these.  There’s also a set of cards with a storage box.  These cards can be used for memory/concentration, “Go Fish”, “Old Maid”, or other games!!

Let’s Have a Luau

Summer is the perfect time to have a luau!!  I’ve created several printables that can be used in the classroom or at a party. 

This set includes several puzzles with various number of pieces.  The main object of the puzzles is a tiki.  There’s also an old Hawaii map postcard and other luau related items.  There’s also a full set of cards that can be used for memory/concentration with a storage box.

Here’s a collage of just some of the luau/tiki items available ….
