I know, I’m pretty lacking in my posts again. There just always so much going on and I don’t see it getting any better with the holidays coming. I do plan to do my best though.
I wanted to let you all know that the new “subscriber freebie” is uploaded and ready for you. It’s a set of coloring pages and it’s in perfect timing for Thanksgiving! This will probably be the last freebie until after the New Year.
I also want to sayTHANK YOUto each and every one of you who follow along. As I said, I know that I’m not regular in my posting and that makes it hard to follow, but you stay with The Treasured Schoolhouse and I appreciate it.
Enjoy your new “subscriber freebie” and please remember that I don’t send out the password. It’s included with the newsletter each time one goes out.
We just finished up our creation unit. I start them out with the days of creation and the next week, we go into how God made man and then rested. The following week, we do an “I am special” to go with God made me.
This year I’m used something that was new for me. I related it to Psalm 139:14, which states I am wonderfully made. This was so much fun and I loved having a verse that went along with the lesson. Here’s what we did….
We started by making our hand prints. I don’t know if they had more fun putting paint all over the hand or sprinkling glitter all over the hand print!
After they dried, we colored the frames around them and sent them home to share with their parents.
Next, we did a little writing practice by doing a tracing page. I read the Psalm to them as they traced the words.
Again, I read the entire Psalm to them, then I read it sentence by sentence and they filled in the missing words.
With that hard part done, we moved onto the easiest part and that was the coloring page.
I have to say that the kids really enjoyed all the activities. I’m so glad that I went this direction this year and I might just do it from now on! If you’re interest in this activity pack, please check it outhereor “add to cart” here….
It’s the that time of year. The time when kids want to dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating. Yet, many of us want our kids to remember their faith during this time of the year. Well, it can be possible for both to happen!!
Below are several links to free (and a couple paid) ideas and printables to do for Halloween or even use during a Fall Fest, Harvest Party, or any activity!!

Last week, my class and my daughter’s class worked on a lesson for creation. She did a cut and paste worksheet that I made. Here are some pictures of her kids working on the page and enjoying it!
Cut and Paste….
It is read like God gave me ears to listen to his creation and God gave me a heart to love his creation. So this page covers the 5 senses as used in creation and makes learning about it fun!
