To be a lifegiving parent you need the life of Christ within you. Many parenting books focus on technique or methods of discipline. By contrast, Clay and Sally Clarkson’s new book focuses on the kind of parent you need to be to pass on the life of God to our children — hence the title — The Lifegiving Parent.
I made these Complete-a-Dot Printable Activities for my daughter a while ago and am only now getting them up on my blog. My little girl loved matching the stickers to the right colors.
These Complete-a-Dot printable activity pages are meant to be used with three-quarter inch office labels. I bought some at the dollar store, or you could buy them on Amazon. You could also use Do a Dot markers.
Here’s a Free April Nature Calendar. I hope you enjoy these ideas to interact with nature.
We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground, but we know spring is just around the corner.
We’ve been making maple syrup. I owe a huge thanks
I wasn’t sure I was going to make a March Nature Day by Day calendar, but a reader left a comment on my February calendar that made me think some of you might be missing the March one if I didn’t make it. I was in a bit of a hurry so I made it on the computer and used clip art, but I think it turned out lovely.
My preschool daughter loves books and she also loves worksheets, so I’ve created some Snowy Day Printables to go with one of her favorite books– The Snowy Day by Ezra Keats.
The worksheets include a lot of cut and paste activities because she loves doing those. I’ve tried to keep most of the cutting lines straight so that your little ones can do most of the cutting themselves. The worksheets include number activities using the numbers 1-5 and letter activities using the “s” sound. They also cover sequencing, opposites, and comprehension activities.
Here is a February: Nature Day by Day Calendar for you. I had a lot of fun finding nature activities to put on there and we’ve already enjoyed doing some of them. I find that if you embrace the season you are in, you will spend less time wishing for the next one.
Make learning fun with these printable history games. Your students won’t even know they’re learning! Contains over a dozen games that can be printed out and used to enhance your study of United States History.
I’ve enjoyed the Nature calendars in the book Natural Science Through the Seasons: 100 Teaching Units by J.A. Partridge. Inspired by the beautiful calendar this talented blogger made, I decided to redo the calendar for January nature calendar.
In an effort to spend more time with my little girl and less on the computer, I hand drew the whole thing so forgive the slightly crooked lines. I’m not going to pretend that mine is half as good as the one the other blogger did for October, but I’m sharing anyway.
If you’re opening a Teachers Pay Teachers store you may be asking yourself, “Is a Teachers Pay Teachers Premium Seller Account worth it?” I know I did. Or if you’ve had a store for a while, you might be asking yourself, “Should I upgrade to a Premium Seller account?”
Especially if you haven’t made a lot of money, it’s hard to pay the almost sixty dollars to upgrade. (It was for me.)
Which is better for sellers: Teachers Pay Teachers or Educents?
That’s the question I’ve been trying to answer the last few months. Is it better to sell my educational games on Teachers Pay Teachers or Educents?
