Mrs. Wishy Washy

The Schoolhouse Moved - FilesYes, I’m finally back!!  I know I haven’t posted in forever, but it’s just been plain busy.  I needed to take a break from blogging and focus on other things, but I’ve had so much going on, that getting caught up or relaxing wasn’t even part of it.  I’m here now though!!

Mrs WW cover

I had a member of my group ask me to make some printable for Mrs. Wishy Washy and I was happy to do that for her.  She’s a great lady and I consider her an online friend.  There’s one more thing that she’d like me to make, but not sure if or when I’ll get to it.  If I do, it’ll be a set of jigsaw puzzles for little hands.

But, for now, I have these to share with you all!!  There’s a set of alphabet flashcards and alphabet match 2-part card where upper case is matched to lower case.  I also made a set of kindergarten Dolch sight word flashcards.

You’ll also find a pull and retell the story printable.  It’s one of my favorites!!  There’s also a set of characters that can be used for stick puppets or felt story pieces.  Finally, there’s a set of word wall cards with all the characters and items from the story.

If you’re interested in any of these printables, please just click on the Mrs. Wishy Washy book cover above to be taken to the download folder.

Looking for Dr. Seuss??

The Schoolhouse Moved - Files

 

Are you looking for printables to use in your classroom, at home, or in your daycare to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss??  Maybe you just want some fun activities to keep the kids busy on the weekend or after school.  No matter the reason, I have what you need!!

I have lots of free printables to share with you.  In some of the links that I’m about to post, you might find some duplicates, but many won’t be.  Just take your time and browse around!!

On my blog, Commotion from the Ocean of Life, you’ll find a bunch of stuff for “Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss“.  Once upon a time, that’s where I used to share all my printables that I created!!

Next, some of you might remember the “Seuss-icle Followers Contest” that I held right here on this blog.  This contest lasted a week and I offered freebies each day.  Here you can find each of those posts and see just what I offered each day.

With luck and time, I’ll be creating some new materials this week.  Things have just been crazy busy and I’m barely keeping my head above the water right now!!  Keep your eyes open though and hopefully you’ll see something new featuring Dr. Seuss coming your way!!

The Jetsons

JetsonsNot long ago in my group, we had a character theme of The Jetsons.  I didn’t get a chance to make much, but I was able to complete a couple projects.

There are four jigsaw puzzles.  Each puzzle has 9 pieces, so they’re good for several ages/grades.  There’s also a set of four basic puzzles.  These work on their fine motor skills assembling these 4-piece puzzles.

Would You Be Willing To Pay??

I recently found some clipart that I like and really want to use it in some of the printables that I create.  The problem is, it’s not allowed to be at all for freebies.  I’d like to know if you’d be willing to pay a small fee (say 50¢) per printable created using these graphics.  It’d be my typical materials that I create and I wouldn’t size anything down or try to make extra.  Payments would be made via PayPal and you’d receive the item by e-mail within 24 hours.  I just need to charge something to so that I’m not violating the TOU of the artist and her clipart.

Thanks for voting!!



Christmas Printables

I’m working on some new Christmas materials to share with you all, but it’s taking so much time and I’ve just been so busy.  I’m sure that you can relate, as I’d be willing to be that you all have a lot going on too.  In the meantime, you can see the previous Christmas freebie printables that I’ve shared.

Santa with list and bag

If you’re looking for nativity ideas, please look here.  There’s 2 pages worth of things that I’ve shared in the past.  If you’re just looking for general Christmas, you can see those here.  There’s a few nativity that showed up on this list as well.

Also, last year when I did my “Nativity A Day”, I shared them on my personal blog.  You can find nativity printables here.  There’s more than a page of them.  For basic Christmas prinables, there’s several for you to look at.  You’ll find Christmas printables here andsome 12 Days of Christmas here.  If you read through this, you’ll find several Christmas materials.

I hope this keeps your kids and family busy having fun and learning for now.  There’ll be some new Christmas printables coming soon.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you find something that you can use.

If you use any of these freebies, please leave a comment and let me know or share pictures of your kids in action with them.  I’d also appreciate it if you took the time to click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

Patriotic Calendar and Desk Sets

It’s almost time to go “back to school”, so this week, I’ll be creating and sharing things to use in the classroom (or at home) as we all head back in that direction.  Most will be calendar sets in a variety of color themes, but if time permits, I’ll also be making some other materials.

I call this first set patriotic because I used a red, white, and blue background.  It’s a great background with all the patriotic colors in a fun swirl.

The calendar set includes dates 1-31 with extras like “no school”, “birthday”, and a couple of others.  There’s also a set of numerals for 32-100 for those that use your calendars as a 100’s chart.  There’s also all 12 months of the year, as well as years from 2012 to 2017, so you can use this set for years to come!!  Finally, there’s a set of days to use on their own or use with the yesterday was, today is, and tomorrow will be cards.

In the desk set is a set of cubbie tags and desk plates.  Both include a blank for you to use as needed.  There’s also a 1-100 counting chart.  I also made a set of “home tags” which list several methods that the children go home.  These can be attached to the desk, used as a neck tag, or attached to the backpack.  Had my daughters teacher used these in 1st grade, I wouldn’t have had to be panicked when my daughter didn’t get off the bus!!  Finally, there’s some incentive sheets.  These are larger in size and can be used for behavior, reading, returning homework, or a number of other things.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what the calendar set looks like….

FIXED: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This folder has been fixed and anyone wishing to download these files can now do so!! Sorry for the error, but 4Shared has a couple new features that I’m still getting used to. I had no problem accessing them now and you all should be able to as well.

Thanks so much Mary for letting me know there was an issue!! I surely don’t know unless someone brings it to my attention, so it’s appreciated.

New Year …. New Direction

I want to wish all my readers, followers, and those who use my printables, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  I hope that you have a blessed 2012.

With a new year comes new directions and some changes.  This is so true for me!!  It’s also true for my blog and the things that I create.  I will still continue to create and share my educational and Christian printables, but I’m adding to my portfolio.  I’m going to start to create printables for the home, party supplies, gifts, and items like those.  I feel that it’s time for my to broaden my horizons.  I don’t think that any of you will be disappointed by what I share and I think it will bring in a wider range of viewers to my blog.

My first new offering for the new year is a set of checkbook cover art.  This is a set of 4 different ones.  The checkbook cover art are inserted inside the clear plastic covers.  I’ve had one of these covers for years and my insert if wearing out and I’ve often wanted to change it out.  I measured them for the clear cover that I have, but some might vary slightly in size even though they’re pretty standard in size.  In that instance, I’d just trim off the borders to help them fit better.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the checkbook cover art….
