Ballerina Preschool Pack


I have had this pack on the agenda for quite awhile now and finally did it!  Honestly I was waiting to see if I could find a boy ballet dancer to include, but none of the artists I use for clipart had one or any plans of designing one.  So, for girls it is.  The precious clipart featured in the pack is from my favorite…Stockberry Studio.

Here’s a glimpse of what is included {all free} in this Ballerina Preschool Pack

Read and Write the Room Printables


I wrote a post about using Read & Write the Room cards a few weeks ago.  I have since created a separate webpage to host these cards to make them easier to find!

Each set contains 5-10 word cards, most featuring photographs.  I also include recording sheets with tracing lines and blank lines.  Most of the recording sheets will have black line images to help save ink and also allow for coloring.

I print the main cards on cardstock, laminate and cut out.  I print the recording sheets on paper using fast draft to save ink.  You could also use the Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center to reuse the recording sheets!

This is what the website looks like where you can download the free pdf files for each set…


I hope many homeschools and even classrooms enjoy using these!!

Montessori Printables


I announce tons of website additions over on my Facebook but sometimes forget to make the announcements over here on the blog!  I have added a few sections to my website which I will share with you in more detail this week!

Montessori Printables is a section I plan to grow as time goes on featuring free Montessori Printables.

So far I have 2 different types of printables, Match-Up/Memory…


and Nomenclature {3-part cards}…image

You can see the links showing the files I have available currently and I plan to add to them as time goes on!

Not sure what these are or how to use them?  Don’t worry-I added in a sheet at the beginning of each file with instructions and ideas!!

A common question I get is about where I get my photos/clipart.  I have memberships to several sites and pay for many of them myself.  I also include photos I have taken myself {example: the orange butterfly in the bugs set is a photo of mine}.

I am continually working on my blog and website to make navigation easier for you.  I did add the link to this page on the right side of the website, links over there are in ABC order, you can see Montessori Printables highlighted in yellow…image

Ocean Life ~ August ~ Calendar Connections Cards

I have been brainstorming with my good friend Shannon since the idea of Calendar Connections came to me.  We have decided to move forward as a team.  She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}.  She has 4 kiddos ages 1, 6, 12, and 14.  She wrote the facts for this set and I created the final file, it was a total team effort!  In order to help support their missionary family, all ocean life books linked in the file and in the Amazon widgets are linked to her account.  If you make a purchase through those links you will be supporting their family!!!

We chose an Ocean theme for August.  The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids.  It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme.


OCean Life Calendar Connections


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar {which is currently out of stock on Oriental Trading}, item # IN-62/2017…


but you could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up.  You could also use a standard pocket chart.  They seem like they would fit in this calendar on Amazon but I am not certain. 

Ocean Calendar Card Facts

I printed my numbers on cardstock and laminated them before cutting them apart.


You can download these for FREE here!

Did anyone else use the July Calendar Cards?  We did and they were a HUGE success {still are as we are finishing up}!  We played tons of review games and used little fruit snacks {and M&Ms one day…they were THRILLED} that I tossed them when they could answer my quiz questions.  I am absolutely amazed with the knowledge Krash has soaked up.
