Jonah and the Whale

I’m so excited to share this craft that I made.  I just know that my kids are going to l-o-v-e it!!

My lesson is on obeying God and I just love relating Jonah to this lesson.  For this craft, the kids will color it and cut it out.  For my class, I’m going to cut the whale apart on the dotted line so there’s no mistakes!!  Then there’s a choice of which Jonah to put in the belly of the whale (big fish).  It can either be standing or kneeling/praying Jonah.  Also, I included a Bible verse about obeying that my class glued on the top of the whale (big fish), but this is optional or you can add your own.  One other thing that I did was to put dotted circles around the verse and Jonah for younger kids to cut out and older ones can directly cut him out.

Here’s a couple photos of the finish project (uncolored but assembled)….

What’s Inside the Church?

This week, my lesson was on church.  I not only cover behavior, but things that we see in church.  I like the kids to be familiar with their environment and have some understanding of what they see and why it’s in church.  I only did one of these activities with my kids because I had a couple other good materials to use.

The first activity is a cut and paste.  This is the one that I did with my class.  There is a sheet with lots of items found in church and the same number that aren’t found in church.  The kids find 6 items that are in church and glue them to the church windows.  With all the options, my kids had several different versions because they all remember different things in church.  I think it made it really fun!!

The next activity is a worksheet for matching items to the church.  There’s several items all around the church and the kids draw a line from the items found in a church to the church and nothing is done with the other items….or you could have them cross them out.

Here’s a thumbnail view of both activities…..

Holy Trinity

My lesson with my class today is the Holy Trinity.  Sometimes this is easy to teach…..and others it’s a real challenge.

For my lesson today, I’ve made 2 printables for my kids to do.  They’re both sort of crafty and I think that they’ll have fun with them.  First up is a cut and paste activity to glue the trinity triangle onto a shamrock (I printed this on green paper).  Then, they’ll place the 3 symbols for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the proper locations on the triangle.  We’ll discuss how all 3 persons are really the 1 God and how the shamrock teaches us how to learn and remember the 3 persons of the trinity.

Next, we’ll do a heart shamrock craft.  They’ll cut the hearts out and trace the names of the 3 persons of the trinity and color the shamrock.  After that, they glue the 3 hearts on the shamrock to complete it.  It’s a simple project, but I think that it’ll really help them learn the placement the 3 persons.

Here’s a thumbnail view of both projects…..

Days of Creation

I’m just a couple of days away from my first religion class this year.  I’m pretty excited. This will be the smallest class that I’ve had since starting though.  Right now, my count is at 7 kids.  That’s a small class for me!!

Our first lesson is going to be Creation.  This is the best place to start with my little ones because the first class can be pretty hectic.  There’s usually one student that gets enrolled the day of the first class.  It’s also the time that we go over rules, folders, and all those goodies.

I’ve made something new to use this year in class for our lesson.  It’s a story wheel for the days of Creation.  It’s actually 2 wheels with the first being the day of creation and the second one being an image of that day.  The whole thing can be colored and assembled fairly easy by little ones….and big kids should enjoy it too!!  The little ones will definitely need help cutting out the viewing boxes, but depending on their skill level, they might be able to cut out the rest.

Here’s what the story wheel looks like….

Epiphany

I struggled with a lesson tonight.  I have the rest of the year planned, but tonight was a blank for me.  Since the feast day of Epiphany is 6 January, I decided to go with that for tonight’s lesson.  It worked out well and I want to share some of the activities that we did with you all.

We started with a coloring page that I made for them.  It tells them what Epiphany is and the date.  Then they had a picture to color from dailycoloringpages.com and I added that to the sheet.  You can download the Epiphany sheet here.  The kids said they “loved” the picture, so I’m glad I picked that one.  I was torn between 3 of them and narrowed it to 2 and decided on this one because it just seemed like my kids in class.

Next, we did our craft.  I wanted something pretty basic since this is the first week after Christmas Break.  I didn’t know what kind of mood they’d be in or how much effort they’d put into it.  For the craft, I chose the wiseman silhouette from DLTK  and it couldn’t have worked out any better.  I chose to apply it to a light blue background so that they’d really stand out.  They did!!  Here is the one that I did…..

If you’re interested in doing this craft with your kids or class, please just click the image above and it will open to the craft page at DLTK.  Notice we did ours different than the sites instructions.  I made copies of the camel/wiseman and then we cut them out.  After that, we glued it onto the blue paper.  This is much easier for my age group.

We also did a maze, and I don’t remember where I got that from.  They didn’t like it as much as the other activities!!  Finally, I wasn’t sure how much time we’d have, so I printed off a letter writing sheet from First-School.  It’s a good thing that I did have the extra because only half my class showed up today.  With a smaller class, you go through activities much quicker.  You can find the Ww-wise men writing sheet here.

The last thing that I have for you we didn’t do in class tonight.  Back in 2008, I made a file folder game that’s perfect for Epiphany.  This is a fun game more than a lesson, but it still gets the point across.  You could also add your own cards to make the game part of a lesson or for review.  The game is called Follow the Star and can be found here.  There’s also a game from 2007 called The First Christmas that would be good for review of Christmas and Epiphany.  For this one, players must answer questions about the holiday if they land on a “gift” space, which is the gifts of the 3 Wisemen.  You can find this game here.  

That about covers it!!  I hope that you find something here that you can use with your kids or class for Epiphany.  Mine really seemed to enjoy this lesson and took a lot away from it.

Missing My Next “Nativity A Day”

I’m sorry to say that my Nativity A Day will NOT post today.  It was an incredibly busy day.  I had to get the kids in my class another Christmas present and fill their gift bags.  I was also working on a set of Christmas Flashcards for a request in my group.  She wanted flashcards with Christmas items and their words.  It was important that I worked on those and I not only worked on them, but I completed them as well!!  And of course, just general duties of being homeschool mom and domestic engineer.

I will do my best to post double tomorrow, but no promises.  I just might have to accept that I couldn’t do 24 days of nativity printables.  Even so, I’m not defeated because I’ve done alright so far and there’s still much more to come!!  When I do post tomorrow, it’ll be over at The Schoolhouse, so be sure to check it out.

Thanks for your understanding.  I have a little more to finish up tonight, then off to bed for me.  I can’t make it a late one tonight as that class Christmas party wore me out!!  HAHA

Outtie…..

I’m Hosting a Give-Away

As many of you know, I split my blogs between family life and the Christian & educational printables that I create.  I was blessed in finding a store that I wanted to purchase some scrap kits from, so I contacted the owner to see if I could use her kits in the manner that I use them to give away my Christian and educational printables.  She told me that it wasn’t allowed, since she gets her elements from so many different locations.  Some of them allow it, but some don’t.  She suggested instead that she provide a kit to me to create a couple printables to give away on my blog.  She said she’d also provide the “grand prize” of a $10 gift certificate!!

You can read about my angel that’s sponsoring my first every give-away by reading my post, My First Give-Away.  Also, if you’re interested in participating in my give-away, you can do so while you read all about it and get your FREE printables as well!!  Hope to see you at The Schoolhouse!!

Johnny Appleseed

As many of you may know, Saturday is John Chapman’s birthday.  You may better know him as Johnny Appleseed.  Some think that’s he’s merely fiction, but he was indeed a real man.  Today, I have printables to share that are all about Johnny Appleseed!!

Up first is a strip puzzle that teaches and re-enforces number order from 1-10.  Next up is a set of jigsaw puzzles that are 4, 8, and 12 pieces and feature great art of Johnny.  You’ll also find a tic-tac-toe game that has a variety of game pieces to go with it.  Then there’s a memory game to test the kids thinking and memory skills.  You’ll need to print out 2 pages of each page for this one!!  I don’t want to forget the Johnny Appleseed shadow match game.  This one is great for visual recognition.

More along the educational line than the skill areas, there’s “Johnny Appleseed Beginning Letter Match”.  This one, the kids will match the apple tree object to the letter that it begins with.  Johnny of course is carrying these “seedy” letters!!  You can find these 2-part cards here.

Finally, I made did some copywork for Johnny Appleseed.  I’m pretty proud of the way that it turned out.  The first book is all cursive.  The second book is for a variety of ages/grades.  It contains cursive, ZB, and DN.  The cursive copywork book is just simply, “Johnny Appleseed Copywork“.  The second copywork book is based on the poem In Praise of Johnny Appleseed by Vachel Lindsay and is In Praise of Johnny Appleseed Copywork“.

I hope that you find something that you can use to celebrate John Chapman’s birthday and it will inspire you to find out more about the man behind the name of Johnny Appleseed!!

If you use my printables, please leave a comment and let me know if you liked it or if the kids enjoyed the activity.  I can only create from the input that I get from those that use it most often!!  Also, If you enjoy my blog, posts, or printables that I share, please click the button below to vote for me.  Thanks!!

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.

Themes

Well, as promised, I have a couple themes to share with all of you.  I’ve created several items for a Beach/Ocean theme, Dirt Bikes, and Renaissance (which includes pirate, medieval, prince, and princess).  These were all items that were requested, so I made a few things to helps out.

Now I could just give you the link, but that wouldn’t be me!!  HAHA  Of course, I have to tell you about them and your choices.  And, I must remind you as always, be sure to download all the pages or you might end up with part of a game or won’t be able to use the materials the way they’re meant to be used.

First up is the Dirt Bike theme.  In there, you’ll find stationery, stickers and a bookmark with envelope.  The Beach / Ocean theme has several items.  They include a “Deep Sea” shape match ffg, 2 types of jigsaw puzzles, and sudoku.  There’s also a color match game that can be used as a ffg or cards.  The last theme is Renaissance, which includes pirates, medieval, prince and princess.  There’s items like tic-tac-toe boards that can be used over and over if you laminate and use dry erase marker.  There also copy & color activities and bookmarks with envelopes.  You can even find a matching worksheet and stationery for this theme.

If you have a theme that you’d like to see me creat materials for, please let me know.  Also, let me know if you’d like to see any certain type of item added to any of these themes.  As always, I enjoy your comments on what you think of my creations.  Enjoy!!

EDIT:  I forgot to note that I plan on adding to the beach/ocean theme.  I’ll probably add a bookmark & envy, as well as some stationery and other items.  If you’re interested in that theme, please check back later (a day or two) for new items to be added.

Homeschool 101: Travel the World

homeschool-101

I know I haven’t done a “Homeschool 101” post in ages.  This is mainly because I ended up being busier than I thought.  I can’t believe that we already have our first year of homeschooling under our belt.  We’re done….completed!!  I even have my curriculum for next year bought.  We’re sticking with the same thing we used this year and expanding a little bit more into other class subjects with it.  That’s a totally different topic though!!

Until you start homeschooling, you don’t realize how much your child(ren) are restricted and inside a box.  I know that it’s different all over by state and school district, but the kids just don’t get out.  They’re locked in a classroom ALL day long.  When kiddo was in public school here, they even quit eating lunch in the cafeteria.  They had so many kids in school that they couldn’t possibly rotate them all through a “decent” lunch period, so they got their lunches and ate in their classrooms.  Imagine never leaving your classroom.  P.E. was only 2 days a week for 30 minutes, while computers and “music” were usually only 1 day a week.  Recess was less than 30 minutes a day, usually being about 15 minutes.

Even though we chose to stay on a pretty formatted and structured day, one of the things that we learned was that we weren’t confined to one room or someone else’s schedule.  We took just about one field trip a month.  Field trips are almost non-existent in public school and in private school, we did about 3 a year.  There’s so much more world out there than that!!  There’s places and things to learn around every corner….literally.

One of the things that we did this year was to create a timeline for all the things that we learned.  We plan on doing this every year.  We didn’t focus on placing our pictures and words on the timeline so much during the school year, but we’re working on completing it now that we’re done with school for the summer.  I shared links in a previous post for some great printable timelines.  In that same post, I also shared a couple printable passport links.

We’re also working on our passport now that we’ve completed the year and can look back at all the places we visited on field trips, in books and other ways to have an adventure.  When you homeschool, you really can “travel the world”.  Actually, you can go beyond that!!  One way to keep track of the places you visit is by using the passport.  It’s fun to find stamps to mark your passport with for places you’ve read about or actually been during the school year.  Since my original post about the passports, I’ve found some new ones and ways to expand on it.  It’d like to share those links with you now.  Maybe next year, you can implement one of these into your school year!!  So, here goes….

ABC Teach has a large and small passport cover template available.  This is a FIAR (Five In A Row) passport, but can be used by anyone.  Here is a pretend and a play passport.  Jimmie has one for flattravelers, but it’s a good one and could be used for anything.  “Introduction to the World” has a great passport and lots of other printables for social studies/the world.  There’s a beautiful one at Homeschool Treasure Trove and one of my favorites at Guest Hollow (formerly Our Los Banos).  For the readers that travel the world through books, there’s even one for the Magic Tree House series.  While we’re traveling, we can’t forget our plane tickets or even the bus and ferry.  There’s even a plane ticket generator that you can input information into, including the kid’s real name and location you’re flying to/from and choose from 33 airlines, plus it has a list of all the airport codes.  When you’ve completed 3 simple steps, you print!!  No passport is complete without it’s stamps and visas.  There’s some state seals for the U.S. and some real stamps from travels around the world.  You could also design your own for where you visit!!

So there you have it.  I hope that you all enjoy your world travels and I hope you travel often.  Save journey!!

EDIT:  I forgot something very important!!  Along with the passports, I’ve ordered a “Learn About China Kit”.  It will contain 10 items directly from China and come in an envelope with Chinese postage and writing.  The cost for this kit is $13 for the items and postage.  There is someone putting these kits together, just so the kids can learn hands-on about China.  We’re excited and can’t wait to receive ours.  I’ll do a blog entry when we receive ours and share our experience with you.  If you’d like to order a “Learn About China Kit”, click on the button below!!

Social Studies and Geography

One of my daughter’s favorite topics is geography.  Last year, she earned the title of “Miss Social Studies” from her teacher.  K’s teacher gave all the kids nicknames and that was hers.  She loves everything social studies.  Her favorite topic of everything in social studies is geography.  Last year, the teacher handed them a blank map of the U.S. and told them to label as many states as they could.  Miss K named 48 out of the 50 states.  She missed Connecticut and New Hampshire.  Because of that, she didn’t have to do a couple of the next lessons/quizzes and often had to help other students.  That thrilled her to no end!!

Now that we’re homeschooling, we plan to have fun with social studies.  She’s going to learn what she needs to and some very important stuff, but we’re also going to enjoy it.  Part of our social studies this year (and probably every year) will be to keep a timeline of every event, person and so on that we study.  I have the timeline all printed out and put in a 3-ring binder.  We used this timeline.  (I’ll list more timeline options at the end of this post.)  However, there are many others available out there that are free and printable.  Each event or person (or anything else that can be placed on a timeline) will be marked on the timeline.  We’re including a picture and the date.  It’s still early yet, so there’s really nothing to show you.  Some of the pictures will be drawn by K, others will come from the internet or photocopied from a book.  I think this will just be the neatest binder to look back on at the end of each year.  Miss K loves this idea too and she’s never done much work with a timeline before.

Another fun aspect of social studies this year will be our passports.  We’re using the passport from HS.T.T. as ours.  (I’ll list more passports at the end of this post.)  For each country or state that we study or learn about, we’re going to place a stamp or graphic on our passport to represent it.  I’m hoping at the end of the year, that we’re world travelers.  So far, we have Wisconsin and Kansas because we’ve learned about those with our read aloud book Little House on the Prairie.  They traveled through Minnesota and other states to get there, but I’m undecided if we’ll add them to the passport.  She has learned about all the states of the Midwest as part of our lessons, which included the Great Flood of 1993.

There is another great passport here.  You can find a passport and plane ticket as well at this class site.  Here’s a cute mini passport and a pattern for another one.  There’s also a Passport for Learning for lower grades.  

I think I’ve shared some timelines before, but one can never have enough choices or reminders!!  Here’s a verticle timeline and a timeline generatorThis and this can be used to make personal timelines.  Cindy Downes has a couple printable timelines as well as links to a couple others.  Finally, there is timelines for homeschool that have many great suggestions and links to other printables.

There’s others available for both of these items.  I search in Google, Yahoo or other search engine will bring up serveral choices.  Often, the hunt is part of the fun!!  I do hope that some of the items that I’ve listed will be of help to those that are looking for them.
