Bible Verse Printables Letter S

S is for Servant Printables

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter S are available to download for free! S is for SERVANT! This set is based on Matthew 23:11, “The greatest among you will be your servant.” 

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

Coloring ~ She hasn’t wanted to color lately but she asked if we could color the picture together so of course we did! I love coloring time because it gives such a great opportunity for discussion. 

RLRS Letter S -8185


Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying 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. I cut this verse into strips for her instead of individual words since it was so long.

RLRS Letter S -8268


The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear her singing along in the video. The tune is “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”


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.

Inspire Me! Story Starter Photo Cards ~ Summer Fun Theme

Summer Fun Story Starters Printables

Sometimes young writers have a hard time putting their thoughts on paper.  When I used to teach Kindergarten, writing was actually my favorite subject to teach, but many children struggled with it.  In my homeschool, my boys have struggled the most with being free writers.  My daughter is much more willing to write and I am trying to find unique ways to encourage and inspire her to just have fun with writing. I have been brainstorming for awhile; trying to come up with a consistent, fun, and engaging way to have her writing for fun on a regular basis. 

I love photographs and using them in teaching.  Many of our printables feature real photographs in place of cute clipart. The idea of using a simple photo to inspire thought for free writing is where my brainstorm ended up. I decided to create a series of printable story starter cards featuring photographs based around a theme. Inspire Me! is the name I landed on.

Story Starters -8043

Each set features a simple photograph on the front, with word ideas on the back.  The word ideas were added as a way to give young writers confidence with a few key words spelled correctly right there for them to refer to. Often children feel lost and dislike not being able to spell.  For my boys especially, this would cause them to freeze.  The word ideas are to help that type of child, the one who loses all ideas, mostly due to their fear of not writing correctly.

For our first set, I chose a summer theme since it is HOT where we are!

See a video walk through here showing you our cards and the extra printables we use alongside of them.

Below you can see some action shots of my daughter using these.  She chooses a card from the set, chooses her writing paper {I allow her to choose if she feels like drawing that day or not}, grabs her Try-It Sheet, and starts writing.  Right now she is only writing one sentence but this will increase as we move along.

Flower Calendar Connections

Flower Identification Calendar Connections

My daughter has been very interested in flowers lately so I created a Flower Identification Calendar Connections set! This set is very basic and just focuses in naming the flowers, thus no back page with information.  She was interested in learning names and seeing pretty flowers which is why I made it simple.

She has enjoyed seeing which flower is next each day, simple summer learning for us!

Flower CC -8123

I hide that little bucket of cards and give her the new one each day as a surprise and she puts in in our calendar.

Flower CC -8114

The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.  I print my numbers on cardstock and laminate them before cutting them apart.


We also still create smaller sets to go along with the small pocket charts found in the Target $1 section. Be sure to visit this post for a tutorial of how to sew your $1 pocket chart into a calendar!

There is also a sheet included to be used in a Calendar Notebook if you are using those too!Calendar Connections  SMALL Flowers


See some great flower books to go along here! I especially love Lola Plants a Garden which was new to us this year!
