Valentine’s Day Printables and More

Valentine's Day Printables and Ideas


One of the very first things I created was a Love Tot Pack.  We have used these printables for years and still do!  Lots of fun with hearts! Another oldie for us ~ our Love Printables focused on 1 Corinthians 13.  We have used these since Krash was tiny and still enjoy pulling them out each year!

AT Word Family Q-Tip Painting

Rhyming Words Q-tip Painting Printable ~ cat, hat, rat, bat

We are working on word families here in our homeschool Kindergarten and will be sharing lots of fun word family printables with you! An entire new You Can Read Word Families set is in development, more details coming very soon!

We started with the _at word family and are focusing on basic CVC words {consonant-vowel-consonant}. Each new set will only focus on 4 words from each word family.

Since we love Q-Tip Painting printables around here, I made a set for our _at words to work on the _at rhyming words.

Ladybug still struggles with her pencil grip.  We use the pom pom pencil grip correction method when she is writing, and these Q-Tips give extra help for her small hand muscles.  I even cut the Q-Tips in half to force her to use her fine motor muscles.

She loved these printables and enjoyed painting the pictures with the Q-tips also.

Calendar Notebook Covers

We shared two different printable 2015 calendars for kids recently and these covers would be great for those, or for any Calendar Notebook you have created!

Since we had a rough and busy last semester, I didn’t even do any calendar with Ladybug, which saddens me since it is so fun and meaningful in Kindergarten.  All of that is changing next week.  She has a new Calendar Notebook, with printables from our tracing calendar and our basic calendar notebook.  I will share her new set up very soon!
