Christmas Ornaments Coloring

Christmas Ornaments Coloring Pages

We have a brand new set of Christmas Ornaments Coloring printables for you! These are great for adults who like to color as well as children. 

The idea behind “Just Color!” is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

If you want to make a mini coloring book, you can scale down PDF files. You could even make some really cute decorations if you scale these down, have your children color them, laminate them and hang them up around your house {or on a tree, or as garland}!

Here’s a peek at the different ornaments in this free printable set! Pick the ones you like and enjoy some coloring time {with or without your kids}!

Christmas Tree Letter and Sound Match Printables

Christmas Tree Alphabet Match

I may not have a young child to use these Christmas Alphabet Match printables with, but I still love creating early childhood resources for YOU! I used an idea like this when I taught Kindergarten many years ago and have always wanted to create a printable version.

There are a few ways to use these printables, you can choose based on the abilities of your child. They can be laminated for repeated use year after year!  Do the hard prep work once, and then pull them out at Christmas time for many years!

Ideas for Using…

Christmas ABC Match2

  • Cut out Christmas trees and leave the tree whole.  Use them in a pocket chart or simply on the floor to work on ABC order.
  • Cut out the Christmas trees and cut the top upper case letter off.  Use the bottom half and the top half for matching ~ this is good for kids who are working on matching upper and lowercase letters.
  • Cut out the Christmas trees and cut the bottom picture off, leaving the upper and lower case letters hooked together.  Use for matching the letters to the object featuring the beginning sound {most common sound}.
  • Cut out the Christmas trees and cut into 3 sections. Use for a BIG matching activity to work on everything all at once!

I hope many of your young children have fun with these free Christmas Tree ABC Matching printables!

Learning About Wild Animals

Learn About Animals with Free Resources from IFAW

{disclaimer ~ this post is sponsored by We Are Teachers in partnership with IFAW – all materials shared are FREE!}

Teaching kids about animals is something I truly enjoy.  I personally LOVE animals and was a bit of an animal obsessed teenager many years ago.  I had a personal fascination with chimpanzees and dreamed of studying them in the wild. Teaching my own children about animals is fun and natural, as it is for many of you. Many of our interest based unit studies are about animals!

I am excited to share new animal preservation lesson plans, printables and teaching resources, available for free at We Are Teachers.

Animal Studies from IFAW

Keep Wild Animals Wild is available at three levels of instruction, I am most excited to share the resources available to children ages 5 to 7 {grades K-2}. Through lesson plans, a student magazine, and an awesome video students are introduced to the concepts of what makes an animal wild and how people can observe and appreciate wildlife responsibly.

The image below is the K-2 Student Magazine, which you can download for free here {just look for this image and click!}.



Take a peek at the awesome educational video made for the younger students…

I hope to dig deeper into these resources soon, especially with Ladybug, my animal lover.  I wanted to share with you now, so you can pin or save this resource to use when you are ready to dig deeper into this topic!

There are many more animal resources for students K-8 which you can access here!
