The Nativity Dominoes

Nativity A Day and it’s 13th posting brings us a set of nativity dominoes.  This is a large set!!  They’re a size that should be good for small hands to play with….and big ones too.  There’s also a storage box to hold the set of dominoes. 

There’s so many activities that can be done with dominoes, so I hope that these will help you find something fun for the kids to do or a nice family night Christmas game!!

Graphing and Tallying the Nativity

Today is the 11th post of Nativity A Day and it’s moving right along.  I actually made this one during some free time last night, but by the time it was done, I was too tired to actually post it!!

Today’s Nativity A Day freebie is a set of graphing worksheets.  For the first one, there are different elements from the nativity on a chart and they will need to right down the points where each element is.  I provided an answer key for this so that they can self-check if desired.

The next two activities require a the die that elements of the nativity on it.  Each time it’s rolled, they will either tally or color in the chart for which element it lands on.  There’s no answer key for the graphing or tallying because answers will vary each time.

Magnify the Nativity

Today is the 9th installment of Nativity A Day here on my blogs and I seem to be chugging right along with them.  I’m having lots of fun constantly coming up with ideas or going to my notes for ideas that I had for this nativity challenge of mine.

Today’s Nativity A Day freebie is a magnification game.  This time, I didn’t make the miniature images super tiny because I wanted it to be for a couple age/grade ranges.  Although my background is very dark, the miniature have large white boxes framing them so there’s no confusion.  My daughter was actually having fun with this one as I was making it trying to figure out which figure was which….without a magnifying glass!!  HAHA  So, I hope you and your kids like it just as much and fully enjoy it!!

Nativty UNO

Today is the 7th installment of Nativity A Day here on my blogs.  I hope that you’re enjoying it as much as I am!!

First of all, I have to confess that today’s freebie is NOT a new creation, but one that I made last year.  I completely love this game though and it’s definitely worth the re-share.  I’m busy today with making plans for my religion class, so I thought today would be the perfect day to update this game and re-share for those that have it and get it out there to those that don’t have it!!

Today’s Nativity A Day freebie is Nativity UNO!!  Our family loves UNO and ever since I made this set, we play this version often.  There’s not much to say about it except that it’s played like the UNO card game, but this one features adorable nativity figures.  It includes a storage box, all the cards needed to play, as well as directions and how to score.  I do recommend printing on card stock and laminating or using clear shelf liner (found at Wal-Mart, dollar stores, etc. in the kitchenware’s area).

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.

Who Stole Santa’s Elf?

This is a card game for getting acquainted or just having fun at home, in the classroom, or even at a party!!

The game can be played with 2 or more players.  The more players, the more sets of cards that will need to be printed.  You can also print more than one set for 2 players to make the game last longer.

Players are dealt the cards and they’re placed in a row face down in front of them.  The game is played to the chant of “Who Stole the Cookie?” and has the same basis.  If the player doesn’t have Santa’s Elf, they say “NOT ME” and play continues on, one player at a time.  If they do flip it over, they say “IT’S ME” and the game ends, unless more than one set of cards is used…..then play continues until the last Santa’s Elf has been flipped over.

This idea is not my own.  I got the inspiration from Super Silly Songs and their “Who Took the Cookie?” activity.  Please be sure to check out their printable activity and stay tuned for me to create another version similar to this one!!

C is for Cookie Monster

A few weeks ago, my group had the theme of Cookie Monster.  I started some alphabet memory cards, but never got them finished.  I ended up not sharing anything for that theme because my creative juices weren’t working.  Well tonight, that changed!!

I not only finished the alphabet matching/memory cards, but I also created 3 additional items for Cookie Monster.  He’s such a fun character to work with!!  So what did I make??  First, there’s the alphabet matching/memory cards.  They will match the upper case letter with Cookie Monster to the lower case letter on the cookie.  I have to warn you that this font was a little funky and some of the letters don’t look quite right or are harder to identify like the lower case “j”.

I also made Cookie Monster Tic-Tac-Toe and I’m really happy with the way this turned out.  The game board is a Cookie Monster background and the tokens are 2 different cookies.  Next, there’s a set of Cookie Monster Label the Color Cards.  I’ve shared similar to these before.  Cookie Monster’s adorable face is imposed on different colors and they must label each with the correct color.

Finally, I made Counting Cookies with Cookie Monster.  This is a set of 3-part cards.  They will match the number of cookies, the number word, and the numeral that Cookie Monster has.  I did these with numbers 0-20 so that you can expand what you use with the kids as they progress.  I wanted to do to 25, but I just didn’t quite make the cards big enough or the cookies would have had to be tiny.

Here’s a peek at some of the pages….

Letter of the Week: Ww

I know I haven’t been posting much for you all lately.  Things are busy around the house and I just feel like I can’t keep up right now.  I haven’t even made new printables for my groups, but I’m at least sharing things from my files.  So, having nothing new, here’s a new Letter of the Week.

The current Letter of the Week is Ww.  The new writing practice is in both fonts with the words well and wand.  The magnet sheets use the words web and watermelon.

Here’s a thumbnail collage of what I newly added to Letter of the Week…..

You’ll also find the letter Ww folder contains the printables that I previously made for Letter of the Week. You’ll find the My Letter Ww Book , as well as writing practice sheets and (Play-Doh) mats in both fonts. Finally, there’s a set of Ww letter tile mats, which currently aren’t available. I still need to update with the word list, so please check back to this post and check for an update on the status of the letter tile mats.  (I also never got the letter Cc letter tile mats updated, so I’ll work on doing both of these in next couple of days.)

To download the Letter of the Week printables, just…..

As always, I appreciate your comments and feedback on the materials that I create. In case some of you might not be aware yet, I’ve created a Facebook page and I’d be grateful if you “liked” me!! Also, I’d love it if you’d vote for my blog by clicking the button below….thanks!!
