coping skills flash cards – free download

1-stress-cards-cover

These cards are great to have around. Most people are all about “breath breath breath”. Well,when my 5 year old is in getting close to meltdown or panic breathing is the last thing she can focus on. If she tries to calm by breathing she will wind up hyperventilating. I included our five favorites and a blank. Counting to 100 and singing keep her breathing properly. We were given a set by her counselor and I wanted to make our own and share with others. FREE DOWNLOAD!

Remember when sharing please send them here or to my TPT store. Thanks!

fun with magic school bus

Payton's out spaceWe are discovering the fun of Magic School Bus. Miss Thing recently did her monthly Scholastic shopping and picked out a Science Kit, the solar system. The only thing she enjoys as much as anatomy is our solar system.

We spent a couple days reading the book The Magic School Bus Blasts Into Space, followed by some serious solar system constructing, minus Pluto which she found very upsetting…. and that will lead to yet another adventure!

Hubby hung her solar system from the ceiling, which led to SOMEONE somersaulting off the edge of the couch while playing with Saturn. Thanks to her newly discovered gymnastic skills, she made a wonderful landing and survived, so did Saturn.

Oh, by the way, the Magic School Bus series is on Netflix!

There is also a wonderful site full of great resources for Magic School Bus for you to check out, I know I am!  http://www.freehomeschooldeals.com/free-magic-school-bus-unit-study-resources-homeschoolers/

daily morning notebook

This is the beginning of a daily learning notebook.

Morning Notebook

Morning Notebook

To start with I have made a basic notebook with a calendar, tally sheet, 100 day tracker, weather graph and writing paper to compare handwriting from 1st day of school to the last. Set up in landscape mode so binding will not get in the way of left-handed children.

Will add more in the future, some free, others paid. Follow me here and on Teachers Pay Teachers to stay up-to-date.

tic tac toe… FREEBIE!

1-cover

Tic tac toe board and pieces. 2 sets of Xs and Os, one in color, the other in black and white. We laminated ours and used velcro dots to attach the pieces so they don’t slide around when playing. You could also use magnets. Free on my TPT site.

card games 5×7 jumbo-size deck

Uno-5x7-color-cover

A JUMBO-SIZED (5×7) deck of cards. I print on cardstock with no back. To create an Uno-like deck print one page each of 3, 4, 30 & 31. Print two copies of pages 5-28 and four copies of page 29. Print extra blanks and write in your own rules and/or math facts to add to customize your game.
CRAZY 8: for younger kids let them match number and color only by removing special cards, add in wild cards for some extra fun.
GO FISH: Can play by number only or number and color depending on age of child.

MATH WAR or PLACE VALUE WAR: Use numbered cards only, divide deck evenly. Decide if you want to play by ones, tens or hundreds. Each player flips their cards, highest number wins that hand and player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. ONES: each player flips one card over at a time. TENS: flip two cards over and lay them down left to right (2 and 1 would be 21). 100s: Flip three cards over and lay them down left to right .
MATCH 10: Remove all special cards and 10s. Lay out cards in a 5×4 grid. Player flips over two cards. If they add up to 10 they keep them and replace the 2 spots with cards from the top of the deck of leftover cards. If they do not make 10 they flip them back over and let the next person take their turn.
