Mini Alphabet Booklets – Letters F to J (Free Printable)

Alphabet booklets for preschool and kindergarten - letters F to J free printable

A few weeks ago I shared a set of alphabet booklet printables for the letters A through E. Today I have a brand new set to share with you for the letters F – J. Each week my friend’s daughter and I have been working through a few of the letters and having some fun together. The booklets are very simple and fold up into a quarter-sheet size – perfect for smaller hands. 

A Peek Inside

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.

Continents Fact Files Printable – Geography Printables

continent-fact-files-and-flash-cards-from-homeschool-creations_edited-1 

This year Kaleb and I have been wandering around the world via books, Little Passports, and various other things we come across in our travels. We have a slew of resources and to go along with a few of our books, I put together some printables where we could track important information related to the countries. 

continent-fact-files-printables-from-homeschool-creations_edited-1

 

There are several pages for each continent: a blank continent image, one showing countries/territories within the continent, and another labeling each of the countries/territories within the continent (Antarctica only has one page). 

All continent fact pages were designed using the traditional Montessori colors: Africa (green), Antarctica (white), Asia (yellow), Australia (brown), Europe (red), North America (orange),  and South America (pink). 

Each page has room to record the following information and also shows where that continent is in comparison to other continents: 

  • Size/Area
  • Number of Countries
  • Population
  • Highest Point
  • Place with Most People
  • Climate
  • Top Landmarks
  • Natural Resources
  • Nearby Oceans

We’ve been using the below books to help us fill in the information blanks on each continent fact file: 


 

simple-continent-cards-from-homeschool-creations

The set also has seven half-sheet printables we recommend printing off onto cardstock and laminating. Use them as larger flash cards to show the various country/territory divisions on the continents. We have a copy in each of our continent boxes and will put them on the wall above our map when we are studying the continent. 

We also highly recommend taking part in a Little Passports subscription! Not sure which adventure to choose for your explorer? Check out these Little Passports blog posts and learn more about their four subscription options:

November 2016 Planning Pages – Free Printable

November personal planner pages from Homeschool Creations

Are you ready for the holidays – somehow it’s hard to believe there are only a few days left in October, which means Thanksgiving will be here for us in a month and then two months until Christmas! This year has flown by! 

To help keep me sane, I try to have a plan in place using my yearly planner – meal ideas, running lists of what needs to be remembered and done…you get the idea. To help you get your days and weeks a little more organized along with me, I have November 2016 Personal Planner Pages for you all to use, and I truly hope they are a help to you in the upcoming weeks. 

A Peek Inside My Planner

If you’d like to take a look at how I’ve set up my yearly planner, I’ve explained it more in this post here, as well as given links to my favorite binder and colorful tabs (because pretty makes life fun too, right?).

Yearly Planner example from Homeschool Creations-5

This year I’ve done a little something different and pulled my planner out of the binder and had it spiral bound at Staples. Loving it so far!!

Don’t Miss The Daily To-Do List

Daily to do list free printable

 

My Daily To-Do List is pretty basic, but hopefully it will work for you too. There is an area to make a list of things to accomplish, household goals, appointment, meals for the day, and even a space to record exercise and water intake. Each page in the document is identical so you can print them off, cut the page in half, and have two lists. If you print them front to back, you’ll have four to-do lists and save a little paper.

Hope you all have a wonderful month!! I’d love to hear your plans!
