FREEBIE: March Pocket Chart Calendar Pieces

March pocket chart calendar pieces from homeschoolcreations.net


Are you ready for a new month? March is almost here and this year already seems to be going by so quickly.

Warm up your laminator and get ready to print and laminate the March pocket chart calendar pieces. {Psst —> Here are some cheaper laminating pouches we use and LOVE!}

Use the different colored number cards to try different pattern sequences: an ABC pattern, ABAB pattern, AABB pattern and other patterns you can make up together. Here’s an example of different patterns using the cards from September.

Valentine’s Day Even and Odd Number Sorting Printable

Here’s a fun printable to use with your kids to practice even and odd numbers as well as number sequencing.

Valentine's Day Evan and Odd Number Sorting Printable

 

Use the Valentine’s Day Even and Odd Number Sort game to have your child work on sequencing numbers from 1 to 30 or have your child sort the numbers by odd or even. If 30 numbers are too many, then choose a handful and record them on the mat {great handwriting practice as well}. 

Print the pages on cardstock and laminate them to make them sturdy {this is how we laminate more inexpensively}. Then let your child sort the numbers by even and odd while spread out on the floor, or pick a handful of the numbers and record them on the last page in the even or odd basket using a Vis-à-vis markers or dry erase markers.

First Grade Mini Office Printables

You might be scratching your head, wondering what a mini office is. Essentially, a mini office is a one-stop place for all those essentials that your child might need while working on his (or her) school work. Prop the mini office can up on a desk and use it to find a quick answer to several common questions.

Homeschool Curriculum Help - First Grade Mini Office Printables

 

What’s Included in the First Grade Mini Office

The First Grade Mini Office includes the following concepts: name printing, phone number, left/right hands, circle and rectangle fractions, coin and paper money values, 8 shapes and name, the numbers 1-20 and number words, months of the year, days of the week, seasons, colors, short/long vowel sounds, and the alphabet with beginning sound picture prompts.

Putting Together the First Grade Mini Office

Homeschool Curriculum Help - First Grade Mini Office view

This first grade mini office is meant to be very simple, but packed full of helpful info for your child. You only need a few basic materials to put yours together:

  • 1 file folder
  • Pages from this printable
  • glue sticks
  • contact paper (you can also have it laminated at an office store)
  1. Print off this printable. Glue the pages onto a file folder or cut out the individual pieces.
  2. Place the pages/pieces into your file folder and glue them down.
  3. Laminate or cover with contact paper.

As you can see from the image above, I chose to cut out the pieces and then glue them on individually to the file folder. We used contact paper and wrote his name and phone number using a Vis-à-vis marker.

Our first grader has his sitting on top of his desk so he can prop it up to use at any time or grab it to use somewhere else. It is already a great help to him.

To work on various pattern sequences, there are THREE different sets of number pieces: green, yellow, and red. Each color has a different clip art pattern to match.
