Antarctica Geography Printables – Free Printables

Antarctica mini unit study

Our recent geography study has taken us to Antarctica and that involved some more updated printables for Kaleb. While Antarctica isn’t a country and doesn’t have a government per se, these were helpful to us in our learning. Below too you will find additional helps for learning tools, lesson plans, and a book unit from other moms to help you out as well.

alphabet-booklets-for-preschool-and-kindergarten-letters-p-to-t

Every few weeks I have been sharing a set of alphabet mini booklets with you. Today I have a brand new set to share for the letters P-T. My friend’s daughter and I have been working through these booklets a few letters at a time and having fun together. The booklets are very simple and fold up into a quarter-sheet size – perfect for smaller hands. 

A Peek Inside

alphabet-booklets-for-preschool-and-kindergarten-16

Each of the letter sheets prints off double sided onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper and folds to a quarter-sheet sized booklet. There are a total of 8 mini-pages for each booklet and inside you’ll find the following: 

  • Cover – color in the block letters as you talk about upper and lower case letters and the sound the letter makes
  • Finish the Maze – find your way through the beginning sounds maze
  • Trace the Letters – trace the upper and lower case letters
  • Do-a-Dot upper and lower case – use crayons, paint, stickers, or other art mediums to color the circles
  • Color the Picture Words (2 pages) – color and say the words that being with the booklet letter
  • Words I Know – write down all the words your child knows that begin with the letter

alphabet-mini-booklet-fold-and-cut-exampleOnce printed, cut along the horizontal dotted line. Stack the papers (pages are numbered) and fold in half on the solid line to create a mini booklet. Borderless printing is recommend (an option in most printer settings).

While it’s a little hard to show you every single page from every single booklet, here is an up-close sampling of what each booklet includes.

2017-18 Yearly Planner – Organize Your Days

yearly-planner-home-organizer-from-homeschool-creations

The last few years I have been using this Yearly Planner – a planner I put together for our family (and love). It’s a place where I can keep all of our day-to-day happenings in one place and attempt to keep life in a little bit more order. Because it was such a help to me, it was one I have shared with you all as well!

Life gets busy and truthfully my brain just can’t remember it all. I’m a paper and pen kind of girl, and seeing my week laid out in front of me is so helpful in keeping things straight. Appointments in one place. Goals and reminders of ‘to-do’ stuff. I can pull it out, open it up to the week on hand, and get a great picture of what is happening.

The yearly planner is newly updated and ready for both the 2017 and 2018 years and now has some additional features (including bonus pages, a variety of covers, and more to come!). 

My goal is to make this planner as user friendly for you all as possible, so if there are additional pages you would like to see added, please let me know! 

Yearly Planner Highlights

planner-pages-week-at-a-glance

Here are the highlights that will help you get your weeks and months quickly organized: 

  • January 2017 – December 2018 weekly and monthly calendars – 24 months!!
  • a 2-page weekly spread that lays flat, 8.5″ x 11″
  • one page to track a weekly “to-do” list, keep running lists, write out weekly goals, and write down things you don’t want to forget. 
  • a one page layout for weekly appointments and top 3 daily goals
  • a link to unlock planner extras – additional pages to help get you organized, including bonus covers, address pages, note pages, and more to come!

The Week-at-a-Glance Pages

Yearly Planner from Homeschool Creations monthly layout

The daily planning pages also include a two page month-at-a-glance spread. These are the pages that I use to write down any major stuff first (trips, big events, etc…) and then do a rough meal plan (before I plug meals into my monthly meal planner).

Just for fun, I added quotes that I love to the month-at-a-glance pages too. It’s something little, but I love reading them!

The pages are all 8.5” x 11” in size, so they fit great in any standard binder. Personally I’m in love with this Martha Stewart binder and dividers – which is why you’ll notice the rainbow colors along the bottom of the calendar. Those are the primary colors in her collection.

Bonus Pages

address-pagesThis year I’m adding something new to the Yearly Planner – bonus pages! I realize not everyone wants the same (or huge) file, so at the end of each planner you will find a link to a webpage where you can download extra pages to print off and use with your planner. Currently you will find:

  • address/contact page
  • books to read
  • notes pages
  • birthday/anniversary tracker
  • project tracker

More pages will be coming – and if there is one you would like to see added, please let me know!

How I’m Using My Yearly Planner

Here’s a peek at my planner so you can see how I’m using it.

Daily Planning Pages printable - free download for February. Also link to the FULL 2015 Daily Planner - get organized this year.

The above is part of my January week – which is still missing a few things. I’ll admit that a huge lack of sleep is contributing to some fuzzy thoughts. Especially the time I need this as my ‘brain’.

Daily Planning Pages printable - free download for February. Also link to the FULL 2015 Daily Planner - get organized this year.

My weekly to do list is just the running list of overall things that need to get done (I keep a longer list on a sheet of notebook paper in another section – until I finish up a cute printable for that!). My goals are broken down from my yearly overall goals. During January I’m trying to finish up a few books (need to get some of that book list knocked out).

Daily Planning Pages printable - free download for February. Also link to the FULL 2015 Daily Planner - get organized this year.

There is always a list of things to do (I also have a list of projects that can be finished in 20 minutes or less). Every day I try to focus on THREE main things that need to be done and then work on other things. Those three are the ones that really need to be worked on at that point.

And pretty always helps out too. The (pretty) tabbed dividers are great for sectioning out different things that I want to keep handy: my cleaning schedule, meal planning, essential oil info, recipes, finances, and other important information.

My new favorite option is having the planner spiral bound! For the 2016 year, I took mine to Staples and they coil bound it for me for $3.99. I am loving the different format and will continue to use this option since it slides into my computer bag easily.

Here’s another look at the month-at-a-glance pages with the coil binding, in case you’d like that option.
