Christmas for Subscribers

It’s been awhile, but I have a new FREEbie for subscribers!  This one is just on time for the holidays.  It could be used in the classroom in a math center or at home.  

Christmas Roll & Cover - Subscriber FREEbie

This FREEbie is a roll & cover that uses 1 to 3 dice.  For some, the number rolled will be covered, but for others the player will have to add or subtract.  This also makes a fun game of BUMP!

In order to get this FREEbie, you have to subscribe to my blog.  You get a newsletter each time that I have a new blog post and I do a special e-mail from time to time.  I will never spam you, as I don’t like that in my inbox either!  The password for the Subscriber ONLY page is in every newsletter.  If you’d like to subscribe, simply go to the “Home” page or sign-up in the sidebar on the right side.

A Thanksgiving Subscriber FREEbie

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 say THANK YOU to 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.

God Made Me….

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!

Coloring….

Cut and Paste….

All done!

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!

If you’re interested in this cut and paste worksheet, that also include the answer key, you can get it by signing up for my newsletter.  It’s an exclusive for subscribers and you’ll receive the password to enter the “For Subscribers” page with your first newsletter.

5 Finger Prayer for Subscribers

I know that it’s been awhile, but I have a “Subscriber ONLY” printable that I just uploaded and I’m excited about it. If you don’t already subscribe to the newsletter, you can do so in the right hand column. I don’t like spam either, so you’ll only receive a newsletter when there’s a new blog post.  Each newsletter has the current password to the “For Subscribers” page.   You also have the option to get the additional newsletter when I post new items in the Shop.

This printable is Pope Francis’ 5 Finger Prayer Poster and Worksheet Pack.  It includes 1 poster in color and the on the reverse side, you can print the meaning of the prayer fingers in English or Spanish.  In addition to that, there’s a page that can be used as a poster or print multiple on a page to attach to desk as a reminder.  

Finally, there are 3 worksheets.  These worksheets include cut and paste, label, and matching.  They’ll work for a variety of ages/grades to teach, review, or anything to suit your needs for Pope Francis’ 5 Finger Prayer.

I hope that all subscribers like this freebie, but more so that the kids enjoy it!!

Creation

Last night was the first night back to class. I was excited to meet my new kiddos and get back to religious education.

I always start with creation because well, that’s where we  started.  So much time is spent on rules, what’s expected, homework, prayers, and so on, that the lesson needs to be fairly simple.  I break creation down over a couple of lessons and classes.  Yesterday, I read the story of creation to them from the Bible.  I stop after each day to review what was created that day.

Then, we did a cut & paste worksheet that I made for class.  It’s a mat that has each day and what was created on it.  So they start off by coloring what was created each day.

creation-1
Lots of colors and no scribbling allowed!!

Next, we cut out all the different days.

creation-2
Good scissors skills!!

Then, we glued them onto the mat and placed them in their boxes.

creation-3
We love our glue sponges!!

creation-4
Glue them into their proper days!!

Here’s the final project!!

creation-5
All done!!

creation-6
So happy with our first project!!

The kids had a blast!!  I have a freebie for you, so that your kids can have a blast as well.  If you click on the image below, you can download the simple color version of this project.  I hope that the kids enjoy!!

My Lenten Promise Activity

I know that I haven’t had anything special for you all lately.  Now that I’m starting my blog on my own domain, I think it’s time to get back on track!!  I have something for all of you, my loyal readers and followers.

MyLentenPromise byElaineG1
This is a freebie for Lent.  I know we’re now into Holy Week, so there’s not much time left to use this.  However, it’s a great activity for the religious classroom or at home with the family.  This is a set of journal pages or a writing activity.  They come in 2 types of lines for a variety of ages/grades.  

You can write your promises on the lines for each aspect of Lent….prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  It can be done daily, weekly, or just once during the Lent season.

Hear My Prayer

This past week in class, we worked on learning about prayer. It’s always such an interesting topic for my kids.

So often, they think that they can only pray kneeling.  They also think that you have to be silent when you pray.  They love finding out that they can stand up against a tree in the park and thank God for his amazing creation!!

To help them learn more about prayer, I created this prompt for them to draw their prayer….

HearMyPrayer byTheSchoolhouse SAMPLE1

I also have a big set of these prompts available in my stores.  There’s a total of 16 pages and it’s a great deal at $3.  It’s great for a variety of ages/grades as there’s prompts to write, draw, or do both!!  You can find this full set at…..

I Am Special Activity

Last year, I did a really fun activity with my kids. They loved it then and they really loved it again this year. So, I just had to share!!

IAmSpecial ActivityPage byElaineG@TheSchoolhouse SAMPLE

In the big open space, they draw a picture of themselves. They need to see what makes them special like the color of their hair, skin, eyes, and so on. Of course, they’re little ones, so they’re far from perfect, but they sure are fun!!

There’s also an area to put stickers down with their name on them or glue letters down. There’s also a blank line for them to write their names. On the side, there’s a cute poem about being unique. Finally, on the side, they can also put their fingerprint under the magnifying glass. Why??  Because each of us has a fingerprint that is unique to only us!!  To do this part, we just used an ink pad.

If you’re interested in this activity page, just click to….

Here are some photos my kids in action with this page this year.  You’ll notice that I forgot my stickers at home, so we made due and used letter beads!!

Creation Story Wheel

I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’ve been uploading several resources to my store. I’ve also just been participating in life!! It’s been awhile since I’ve offered any freebies, but now’s my chance.

We’re back to religious education as of last week. It was hectic, so I really didn’t have anything to share. This week however, we’re learning about creation. This is the project that I’m working on with my little ones….

TheDaysOfCreation StoryWheel byElaine@TheSchoolhouse 1SAMPLE

This story wheel is actually 2 wheels under one cover “wheel”. The first is to select the day of creation and the second is to identify what was created on that day. This project is perfect for learning or reviewing the days of creation.
