Trying Illustrator & a Clip Art Freebie for you: Smiley Faces

Today I dared to look at Illustrator CC and I have to admit: It is great software! In my opinion there is only one little problem …now I want it. I should have stayed happy with Inkscape and Gimp, both free software with brilliant options. Being a novice graphic designer trial and error artist both […]

End of Term Summer 2015 and Lots of Fun – Hurray!

What a busy day! Today was our last day of term and the last day of the school year….and it was packed with fun, joy, and some tears here and there. In the morning I prepared everything for a mega water fight with some of my colleagues …we just needed a reason to use all […]

Recess prepares for life, love and even schoolwork

What a difference! Last term we changed our recess time from 15 to 30 minutes and added extra free play time in class. It made such a difference in my class! Several studies discuss the impact of play and outdoor activities on brain development, social skills, learning and academic achievement and I cannot agree more […]

All numbers, line up! Freebie Number lines

There are two things that I absolutely love to use for my teaching resources: Laminating pouches and velcro. They turn ordinary worksheets into little games and everything looks just better when it gets laminated (I find it so difficult to wait for the laminated sheet to come out of the laminating machine …:S ). The […]

Activities with Alphabet Lacing Beads

Args! I did it again… Yesterday I went to the toy shop to buy a little gift for my friend’s daughter. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I ended up buying a lot more stuff than I wanted to – I guess the guy in the shop could tell I’m a teacher… One of my newest treasures is […]

How to practice Sight Words? Play Mat Freebie!

This term I’m not working a lot on Sight Words because most of my preschool kids still have to practice their ABC and phonics. However, last term we practiced around 20 sight words and I know that next term Sight Words will be back again *yay*! I’m using Fry’s Sight Words (you can find them […]

Spring cleaning …and free alphabet worksheets for you

Finally I’ve found some time for a “blog and store spring cleaning session”. I deleted some products from my shop, because I believe they need a little make-over, and changed the navigation of the blog a little. Just a little. You won’t get lost, I promise :)! But it is so much easier now to […]

Squeezy play-dough balloons – fiddle, squeeze and stretch

  Inspired by Somewhatsimple’s Wacky Sacks I made a few squeezy play-dough stress balloons for my class today. I have a few kids in my class that find it very difficult to sit and listen attentively. So I’m always looking for fiddle toys that I can use during carpet time. I’m a big fan of […]

Free Clip Art: Buttons and Needles – Scrapbooking

Do you do scrapbooking? I don’t, I guess I just don’t have enough time to do all the things I would love to do one day. Anyhow, here is a little Clip Art set that I’ve recently created. Feel free to download it and use it for your educational projects or your scrapbooking projects. You […]

Hands on! Counting cards with pegs or clips – free download

The last two weeks we’ve been really working hard to master matching amounts to numbers and vice versa – some of my kids are really confident to independently identify correct amounts up to ten, but most still struggle with the smaller numbers. There are a lot of different activities we do – worksheets, counting real […]
