Valentine's Spelling Worksheets

NEW Printables! - Valentine's Spelling Hand-Drawn Worksheets!

These printables are all about Word Work practice in a Valentine's theme.

Drawing, writing names, filling in the alphabet.

 Printing practice, finding vowels and consonants.

 Reading words and finding the word "love", and a word search.

Filling in the missing letter to complete the words, and some Shadow Writing.

These are great worksheets for students who are finished their work first and need an extra activity,
a homeschool themed practice, for a Spelling centre, and for extra spelling and printing work that is all themed for Valentine's Day that is coming up!

Greater Than Less Than #2

Our Greater Than, Less Than Lesson has been a BIG hit in our Teachers Pay Teachers store (Thank you all!),
so I thought I'd make some more worksheets to go with it's lesson.
It looks like a lot of children love working on this subject, so I created some new fun ones here.
Butterfly has already enjoyed completing these, the alligator mouths were her favourite!

 I start with easy couting, working up to bigger numbers.

Cut out the alligator squares and glue them in the orange boxes,
remembering that alligators like the BIGGER snack! Yum yum! :)

Compare the numbers, write the correct sign.

 Cut out all the number squares and glue them into the "More than 10" box or the "Less than 10" box!
I drew a number line to help the children SEE where the number is in numerical order as a guide.

Snowman Playdough Kit

So it's been a Winter Wonderland where we are in Canada, we've had a lot of snow come down.
Butterfly and her Daddy have had fun building sliding hills and snow forts.

She loves building snow people and enjoys doing her annual Snow Painting!

Butterfly always gets sad when her snow people melt or fall over when the weather fluctuates, which gave me an idea to make an indoor snowman that she can keep!  I saw this recipe for some self drying play dough!  The homemade play dough dries and then she can keep her statue for a little while longer.

I mixed up the easy ingredients found here, got one of our craft trays to contain the activity, and laid out snowman accessories from craft materials, for her.

She got busy forming her snow person.

This little guy has a seashell hat, pipe cleaner hands, a felt scarf, a fuzzy pipe cleaner carrot nose,
googly eyes, and a gem mouth!

Now it's a little snow person Butterfly was able to keep for awhile!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We made decorations for our New Year celebration at home this year and I thought I'd post the photos of them because it has given me great ideas on making decorations for future parties and birthday parties!  It was so easy to do and all just with coloured paper!

I bought a pack of coloured paper from Ikea, in their children's craft section, and with it, made all sorts of things for a party celebration!

I made coned hats, wrote 2014 with a silver marker, and used sparkly pipe cleaners to make fireworks on top of the hats!  I hole punched a couple of holes on the bottom of the cones to tie ribbons on so we could tie the hats under our chins.  I also made flags, using the coloured paper, silver marker, and food kabob sticks!

We made these cute midnight clocks in accordion style.

We hung them up on our kitchen cupboards.

I used a paper cutter and made a rainbow pattern of triangles, I hole punched two holes at the top of each triangle, and just used some twine to thread them on in a bunting banner style!

I used my silver marker and wrote 2014 in the middle of the bunting.

I cut out some yellow stars to hang up with the banner as well!  It looked so colourful!

Butterfly had a fabulous idea!  She told me to use all the thinner triangles that came from cutting the bunting's bigger triangles.  So we use painter's tape and taped them up in a rainbow pattern along another wall.  I also used these thinner triangles for the 2014 flags we had made.

How colourful it all looked for our New Year's at home!  And we didn't have to go to any party store to buy accessories, we made them all at home!  I going to keep this coloured paper decoration idea under my hat for future parties!  Wouldn't this all be cute for a circus birthday party?

Chinese New Year is coming up next!  We LOVE Chinese New Year at our house!!  We love making lanterns and dragons this time of year, eating Chinese foods with our chop sticks and making fortune cookies!  We also go to China Town to celebrate and participate in their dragon parades!
