This is our 100th 10 Free Downloads newsletter which means we’ve highlighted 1,000 great free downloads to help make your teaching life easier every week. To celebrate, I came up with a contest with $1,000 in prizes plus a $1,000 bonus for your favorite plus another $1,000 for our favorite. I guess that makes it $3,000 total!

The contest is to redesign our ‘It’s About Time’ banner, the one you see where we used to show ads. Here it is:

Your job is to make it even better. You can keep the same copy or create your own while maintaining the same or similar idea. The only acceptable size is 300×250 and you can post up to 3. Voting will end next Saturday, April 28th at Midnight PST. Submissions and voting happen on our Facebook Fan Page starting today. Here’s how:

The 10 banners who get the most LIKES on our Fan Page win $100 each and the one who gets the most LIKES wins a $1,000 bonus. We’ll then choose our favorite to place on the site and award that creator $1,000. We’ll reach out to all winners via FB to organize prize payouts. Spread the word on your blogs and have fun!

Christmas Scrabble Word Game, Printable Christmas Games for Kids #Education #Homeschool

Christmas Scrabble Word Game

via Christmas Scrabble Word Game.

Printable Christmas Games, Christmas Scrabble Word Game

Children Learn by Play, and what better time than at Christmas when everything is madly exciting!  This game gives a whole new twist on the traditional board game of Scrabble.

 

Teaching your child phonics and phonemic awareness needn’t be dull and uninteresting. From a very early age your child will begin to recognise the shape and sound of letters, and be able to sound and associate the correct words to pictures shown. Once your child has learnt the alphabet a whole new world of fun learning experiences opens up to him or her.

 

I devised this Letter Tile game which worked wonderfully for my children when they were younger, and who, after successfully “spelling” out simple Dolch words with the letter tiles, pushed their own envelopes and sounded letters and words to pictures, thereby gaining awareness of more complex words and far advancing their initial knowledge. And the kids didn’t even know they were learning!

 

I have included 215 picture cards, all with a Christmas Theme,  blank cards with instructions on how to make your own, a storage envelope and 2 sheets of letter tiles, both upper and lower case, as well as educator notes on the importance of phonics and phonemic awareness.

 

Have fun!

 

Wishing you and yours a very safe and blessed Christmas and holiday season.

You may not care how much I know, but you don’t know how much I care.”

The information is presented language that can be geared towards older or younger students. The language and terminology as is is thus suitable for around Grades 4-5, but with discussion and explanation it is suitable for younger learners. Older learners will be able to study the information and complete the activities with a minimum of assistance. The Activities, Comprehension and Revision exercises are ranged from young learners to older learners.

To cover all elementary age groups I have also included crossword puzzles, word-searches, lesson plans, crafts and activities for the range Pre-K upwards. Particularly for the kindergarten/grades 1-2 age groups I have included squirrel thematic printables that can be used in a classroom theme or Homeschool room setting.

Teaching Guides, Lesson Plans and ideas, as well as the geography, history & location of the very many species of these beautiful creatures, many of which are endangered, have been included.

Simple & healthy snacks and recipes are sure to delight any child (and adult), while riddles, songs and finger plays, Squirrel Games complete the early learning thematic unit. A special section on learning/teaching Haiku is a fun inclusion in this unit.

This book is on the topic of ‘Ants’ with the target audience being those who are 6-13 years old. The project will cover many species of ants, (and a few other bugs), that children have heard of, or that may be particularly interesting to them. A comprehensive unit study, this book comprises lessons, activities and guides which will assist in providing a complete study of ants in their various forms.

Learning about ants is fun! With a little creativity there is no end to the learning opportunities which may be based around the theme of ants. Maybe it’s their amazing societal structure, feats of strength or ability to survive almost anywhere on the planet that have caused children (and many adults!) to be fascinated by ants.

Learners should be encouraged to record observations. Brief descriptions of the appearance and development of insects, the injury they do, and remedies for the same, will help fix in mind facts which otherwise might soon be forgotten. Drawings, whenever possible, should also be required. The learner who can record observations accurately with drawings will not soon forget them. The pages of this book may be printed and kept in a file-folder together with any notes, drawings or observations made by your child. Pages have been included within this unit study for the recording of such information. By making use of a file-folder you will be able to make use of the unit study for reference purposes and also as a gauge in assessment at a later stage.

This book has been compiled as a result of extensive research and from my own learning experiences and homeschooling journey with my beloved children. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the requirements of homeschooling in your area as each country/State has different requirements. At the end of the book you will find a selection of reports, registers and logs that you can make use of in your homeschooling schedule. I wish you and your family the very best and applaud your decision to home educate your child. After all we, as parents, we around a lot longer than the man-made public education system and who better to teach our children than their parents? May you be blessed in this decision and remember that learning is fun!!

Our gift to you: With this book you will receive a download link for a zip file containing additional mini unit study Notebooks. All files are in PDF format. You will require Winzip (or a similar programme) to unzip the files. The Gift Books are all between around 54 & 70 pages in length.
