Happy New Year!!

Blessed-New-YearI can’t believe that it’s already 2013.  Time sure is flying!!  I don’t like that it’s going by so fast, but I’m ready to see what’s ahead.

I want to thank each of my readers and those that follow along with The Schoolhouse.  I wish each of you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!!


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!!




Bible ABC’s

This week, there won’t be a new page of the Bible Alphabet.  My class will be having their Christmas party tonight, so I won’t be doing an ABC page for class warm-up.  We’re also on Christmas Break for 2 weeks, so there won’t be a new page posted during that time.  Please check back after the first of the year when I’ll resume with new pages!!

 

 



Hanukkah Fun Pack

I know I haven’t been around much, but I hope that this was worth the wait!!  This is a “fun pack” for Hanukkah and it’s filled with activities for class, home, a party, or anyplace to keep little ones and adults busy.

This pack includes a word search, crossword puzzle, and a maze.  There’s also games like “Menorah”, which is checkers and “Dreidel”, which is tic-tac-toe.  There’s also the game of “Gelt”, which is a version of bingo!!  Finally, there’s several pages of lyrics to popular Hanukkah songs.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the pages included in this fun pack (click to enlarge)….

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!!

Lucky Letters

I have another St. Patrick’s Day printable to share again today!!  This one is for the alphabet.

The game board of this ffg (file folder game) is covered in 4-leaf clovers with letters of the alphabet.  The player will place a gold coin n the shamrock with the correct missing letter.  This is for upper case letters.

President’s Day Money Game

This is a ffg (file folder game) that I made prior to the weekend and wanted to get posted, but I just ran out of time.  Hopefully, you’ll still have it on time to use in your classes, save until next year…..or just use it all year long!!

The ffg is Making Money with Washington and Lincoln.  Players roll the die and move that number of spaces around the board.  Landing on a marked space, they must draw a card and with their money, they must make that amount.  All money amounts are using the 2 coins and 2 bills that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are on.  I’ve created several cards with the money amounts, as well as providing the die, money, optional card backs, and complete game.  All you’ll need are player tokens!!

President’s Day

I thought that I’d get this one out early so that there’d be plenty of time to use it!!  Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to create anything new for Valentine’s Day which is tomorrow.  That’ll have to be my goal for next year!!

This is President’s Day Sort and it includes the ffg (file folder game) and a worksheet to complete after the game is played.  Actually, I think I geared the worksheet to an older age group than the ffg, but it’d still be a great review.  Also, some of the images, little ones might not recognize.  You can just use the parts that work for you though!!

There are 12 images to sort for each President by placing the image on either the George Washington or Abraham Lincoln mat.  As it’s played, one might notice many similarites between the 2 presidents.  There’s also a worksheet that uses the sorting mat for answers, but also relies on how much the player knows about each of the presidents.  The last one is an essay to tell about similarities or differences between Washington and Lincoln or just to tell what the player knows about them.  The worksheet also has some true/false, short answer and knowledge.  I did include an answer key for the worksheet as well!!

Images and clipart from various internet sources and believed to be public domain.

Groundhog Day

I’m finally back with some printables to share.  In honor of today being Groundhog Day, I thought I’d break out some of my older creations for this event that haven’t been shared in quite some time.

There are 2 puzzles.  The “Daily Nooz” is 9 pieces and the groundhog puzzle is 24 pieces

There is also a groundhog memory game that includes clipart and images of groundhogs and Groundhog Day.

Finally, there’s Groundhog Playground, which is a file folder game (ffg) that can be played just for fun on Groundhog Day, or even all winter long.  If you swap out the cards that are included and replaced them with some of your own, you could use the game to work or review a certain skill that the kids are working on.

All clipart and images are from internet sources and believed to be public domain.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the elements of the Groundhog Day printables….
