Fall Play Dough Mats

Fall Play Dough Mats

As I was creating these new fall themed play dough mats, my 7 year old daughter peeked over my shoulder and begged me to print one out for her!  She chose the turkey and got to work creating an absolutely adorable turkey!

She has loved play dough for years and still enjoys our Busy Hands Play Dough Box regularly. We like to make our own play dough and I am planning to make a new fall batch this week, but she had some store-bought Play-Doh so she used that!

At first she was upset that we didn’t have the ‘proper matching’ turkey colors. Once she was done she loved her colorful creation and so did I!

Playing with play dough and using printables to inspire creative play is a great addition to an early childhood learning environment. Playing with play dough is great for developing fine motor skills and is an awesome sensory experience. The printable mats bring an added element of play and expose letter and print identification also!

This set includes 5 different pages, perfect to use throughout the fall!

Songs for Saplings ~ Questions with Answers Volume 1 NEW Printables

Songs for Saplings Questions with Answers 1 Bible Verse Tracers and Fill in the Blank Printables

 

A few years ago I created some printables to go along with one of my favorite CDs, Songs for Saplings Questions with Answers, Volume 1. You’ll find a poster for each song and some quiz cards about the Biblical truth taught in the song in that set.

In our new set of printables, you will find two new items to use with these songs.

One is a fill-in-the-blank with missing words from the lyrics.

The other is a verse card sharing the Bible verse{s} the song is based on. She uses the cursive set and traces missing words for a small cursive practice. I also have her read the verse to me in cursive to practice reading cursive. I included a manuscript set also in case you prefer those.

My daughter is in 2nd grade and is using these for part of her Bible curriculum this year. She is learning one song per week.

I put the CD on an old iPod and taught her how to find it and play the right song. Once I helped her for the first week, she learned to manage this on her own. 

Here’s what she does each week…

Monday ~ She uses the song lyric poster and just listens to the song.

Tuesday ~ She listens to the song again, and then traces the missing words on the Bible verse card.

Wednesday ~ She listens to the song and uses the quiz card to check her understanding of the truth being presented in the song.

Thursday ~ She listens to the song and fills in the missing words on the printable.

Friday ~ She shows me all of her work and sings the song for me. She mostly has it memorized by then, but I allow her to read along if she needs to. We discuss the truth and review the previous weeks also. Below she was singing her song to me, she had memorized this one and wanted me to hold the lyrics so she wouldn’t peek.

I added this to her curriculum on a whim and am SO glad I did. She loves these songs and is learning so much. I am hoping to find time to make printables for the Questions and Answers 2 so we can keep going when she finishes these!

Here’s a video clip from Instagram showing her signing along as she was tracing the verse.
