Christmas Printables and Ideas

December 1 will be here before we know it!  The time to get organized for your Christmas homeschool fun is now!  Below you will find direct links to all of our Christmas printables and ideas.

Christmas Printables and Ideas


 

One thing I started years ago that has saved much sanity is our Christmas Activity Notebooks. I select printables for each child and load them up prior to December so we are less stressed and have some fun activities!  As the kids get older, I have less for them, a majority is for the younger ages.

Christmas Activity Notebooks

 

Our site has loads of free Christmas printables to load activity notebooks with!  Our Q-Tip Painting printables are some of our most popular.  We have a Christmas Fun set and a Nativity set.

Do your kids like to color?  We have several Christmas coloring printables, you can download them all for free here.

We also have Christmas ABC Mazes, Christmas book story prop printables, a Nativity Printable Pack, 12 Days of Christmas PrintablesChristmas Tot Book, and various other free Christmas printables.

One of our favorite things to do during the month of December is our Christmas Sensory Bin.  We have a surprise a day and play lots of fun games with our bin!

Before I go any further, let me share this post. More is not better.  Make your December learning choices wisely and don’t do too much.  Your smile will be what they remember.  Stress is not good. Especially stress over the fun activities you planned.

Mommy's Attitude matters more than the Activities

 

Another way I stay less stressed is by organizing our Advent activities in advance.  I use a paper bag method and it works well for us.  Read more about it here.

Organize Advent Activities in Advance

 

Here’s a look at what we did last year, which has links to all of the resources we used.

Advent 2013

 

There are many options for daily Advent fun.  We have Jesse Tree printables, Christmas ABCs, and have enjoyed using Truth in the Tinsel also!

Grapevine’s The Birth of Jesus was a perfect fit for us last year, and we enjoyed a few simple Christmas crafts together.

We have tons of Christmas books, these are our absolute favorite Christmas books.

Bible Verse Printables Letter H

RLRS Letter H Psalm 33 Bible Verse Printables


Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter H are available to download for free!  H is for HEARTS! This set is based on Psalm 33:21, “In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.” 

We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds. I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter N right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter G. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me.

 

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

She enjoys the coloring page.

RLRS Letter H -1628

 

Color ~ Trace ~ Write the letter Hh, using Wiki Stix for the middle set of letters.

RLRS Letter H -1619

 

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

RLRS Letter H -1754

 

Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

RLRS Letter H -1864

 

And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter G in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is If You’re Happy and You Know It.

 

The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.

Draw, Write Now Book 8 Printables

I am finally done with all 8 sets of Draw, Write, Now printables!

Draw, Write, Now Book 8 Printables

Book 8 features Animals of the World, Part 2 ~ Savannas, Grasslands, Mountains & Deserts. If you aren’t familiar with Draw, Write, Now, you can see the post I wrote when we gave a set away and learn more about them!

You may remember me sharing Book 1, and the printables to go along.  These printables are exactly the same, two different options.  One for tracing, one for copying.  Both have the same drawing space.

Goose ~ Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

Our next Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack is ready!  I continue to develop literature unit studies behind the scenes and am excited to share our next free printable unit with you.

A few have asked if I am going in the order the books are listed here on the blog, and the answer is NO.  I am going in random order and that list is not set in stone.  On the website here, at the bottom, I will share the next 2 books I am working on so you’ll have a bit of notice in case you need it.

Goose Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

Goose is a favorite book of Ladybug’s, featuring a goose who grows up away from her momma!  The goose feels different from her other animal friends and goes out on her own and learns she can fly!

In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

Lesson Plan

 

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose patterns, shapes, number words, and counting/writing numbers to 30.

Number Word 3 Part Cards ShapesPatterns Numbers 1-30

  

Lots of literacy activities; Letter G sound, sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and rhyming words.

Letter G is for Story SequencingComprehension Rhyming WordsWriting

  

For our Science focus, children will sort birds/mammals, and sequence the life cycle of a goose.

Sorting Birds and Mammals Goose Life Cycle

  

The first character connection is focused on each of use being special in our own way just as goose was.  The second is about persevering through difficult tasks.

Bible verses are available in a few different formats, choose the one you like best.
