A-Z Christian Flashcards

A couple days ago, I shared some A-Z flashcards.  They turned out well and people seemed to like them the way that they were.  With that, I decided to create a Christian set as well.

I made a Christian set of A-Z Flashcards with scenes and characters from the Bible clipart.  Each card contains the upper and lower case letter.  There are actually 2 sets of flashcards.  One is just the letter and Christian object, while the other also has words or a phrase that about the clipart for the particular letter.

If you use these flashcards, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!! I like to know who’s using my creations and if they enjoy them. I can only keep creating by the feedback that I receive.

A – Z Flashcards

Just one quick thing to share tonight!!  I made some a-z flashcards for a request in my group.  These are made with real images for better recognition.  I made the large so that they’re easy to handle and could easily be used for a “circle time” activity.

There are 2 sets of these flashcards.  You can find the first one here.  They are just plain flashcards.  The second set is identical, but they have the words of the objects located nearby.

If you use these flashcards, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!!  I like to know who’s using my creations and if they enjoy them.  I can only keep creating by the feedback that I receive.

Celebrate Freedom

I have some patriotic items to share with my readers.  Just in time for Independence Day!!  First up is a large set of flashcards.  These are Celebrate freedom Say & Write PrePrimer Dolch Sight Words.  They are PrePrimer and I used a writing font to help the little ones learn how to write the words.

Next up is a bookmark and sleeve to keep it in.  If you put it on cardstock and laminate, it’ll last a long time!!

More to come, so watch for UPDATES to this post!!

EDIT 1:  I didn’t like the way the background on the cards converted, so I redid them and I think they look much better!!  You can see the new background for yourself.  Yes, there’s at least one more to come, but I haven’t completed it yet, so keep watching!!

Place Value

**EDIT & UPDATE**  Please see the bottom of this post for a change to one of the downloads.

One math concept that’s often hard to understand is place value.  Kiddo doesn’t have much issue with this, but I still wanted something that she could use to review what she’s learned.  Next year, she’ll be doing place value to the millionths.  That’s quite a ways on the right side of the decimal point!!  I created 2 games today to help children learn about place value and it works on their skills the entire time they play the game.

The first file folder game is Place the Value and works on place value from the ones to the billions place.  There are 2 sets of question cards.  One set has the answers on the cards and the other set doesn’t.  The set without is for those that want an individual to work on place value and don’t have anyone to read the question card.  There is an answer key provided to self-check the answers.  The set with answers is for more than one player games.  An opponent will read the question and know if the player answered correctly.  This game is complete with a die and player tokens.

The second file folder game is The Value of a Decimal with place values from the ones place, down to the billionths.  That is 9 spaces to the right of the decimal!!  This game has 2 sets of question cards as well for those that might only need it for an individual.  As with the game above, it has the answer key, player tokens and a die.

With both of these file folder games, it doesn’t have to be played up to the highest or lowest place value.  You can just play it with the place values that are currently being worked on and save all your place tokens and questions for a time when they’re needed.

As with all my games, please be sure to get all the pages.  I can’t say it enough, I don’t understand why someone would want to get 4 of 6 pages.  You’re just not getting the complete game and also not able to play the game the way that it’s meant to be played.

For my little “bonus” tonight for my readers, I have a set of Animal ABC’s cards with Storage Box.  This is a set of cards that uses pictures of real animals and has an upper and lower case card.  The first letter of each animal name is also highlighted so that the kids can recognize the relation between the 2.  It also has a storage box for the cards.  Some uses for these cards could be to use them as flashcards, concentration (memory), or a number of other game suggestions on the cards!!

I hope that you all can use these shares tonight and that the kids really have fun playing while they learn!!  If you like the file folder games and other materials that you see here or if you use them, PLEASE leave a comment and let me know!!  I have no other way to know if my materials get used or not!!

**EDIT & UPDATE**  It was suggested by DMarie in a comment that I used a different animal for the letters c, g, and s.  The animals that I used didn’t really work with pronunciation of those letters.  I have changed those 3 cards and also included a blank card in case there’s an animal that you’d rather use.  The cards were cheetah, giraffe, and sheep.  They are now camel, gull, and squirrel.  You can download these replacements if you’d like.

Mixing it Up

I’m going to start with a file folder game/mat that I made today.  I don’t know why, but I’m really proud of this one.  This ffg/mat is for CVC words, that is constanant-vowel-constanant.  It’s called “Baited Words” has 2 game board/mats for 2 different versions of the game.  There’s also a separate set of directions for each version.  For one version, the player matches bobbers (CVC objects) to the CVC word.  In the other version, the player gets a bobber (CVC object) and spells the word out using letter hooks.  It’s fun, cute and kid friendly using a fishing kid’s theme.

Lean Green surprised me with flowers tonight.  Yes, flowers!!  I couldn’t believe it.  He said he just had to stop for a minute on the way home and pick them up for me.  This is highly unusual because I’m not much of a flower person at all.  He made sure to get just the right pretty spring bunch though….complete with a pink carnation!!  I’ll post pictures of it tomorrow.

On the subject of The Man, someone finally came to check out the damage to his car from that fender bender he had a couple weeks back.  He has 2 options.  He can either take it someplace to have it fixed, or he can find a bumper on his own and pocket the left over money.  We’ll know exactly what we’re looking at as soon as the appraisal comes in and there’s no telling how long that’ll take.

Mr. Turtle is doing great.  That critter LOVES strawberries!!  He gobbled up some boiled egg (with shell) tonight.  So far all the research I’ve done has paid off.  He eats everything they said he would.  We haven’t tried meat yet.  I’m sure that’ll come this weekend.  Oh, and as much as he loves strawberries….he HATES celery!!  HAHA  We’ve let him run around the house once, but that drove the dogs nuts, so we took him outside this evening.  He didn’t seem to like the grass much at all.  We moved him to the walkway, then he took off.  When it was his idea to be in the grass, he was good with it.  And let me tell you, that turtle can move!!  HAHA

I’m going to end with another item to share.  This one is “Memorial Day Say & Write 3rd Grade Dolch Sight Words”.  Print them out, laminate and let them write the words on the flashcards in cursive.  Otherwise, just simply use them as flashcards to help learn the 3rd grade Dolch Sight Words.  If I must say so myself, these sure are pretty!!

I’m going to try to create something each day this weekend for Memorial Day.  I don’t know if that’s possible, but I’m sure going to put some effort into it!!  On that note, I’m outtie!!
