Shape Word Cards for Read, Build, Write Vocabulary Mats

Many of you all have asked for a set of shape word cards to go along with the Read! Build! Write! Mats! Although Kaleb knows his shapes, we are working on identifying shape words and these will be a great help to us in using the vocabulary mats.

Shape Word Cards

 

There are two different pages in the word cards – one in black in white and another in color.

All downloads are in the green columns on the Read! Build! Write! page

The Read! Build! Write! Vocabulary Mats

Not familiar with the Read! Build! Write! mats? Basically, they are a fun way to work with your child on word identification and spelling.

Here’s how you use the mats:

Read: Place one of the vocabulary cards in the top box and read the word together.

Build: Use letter tiles or magnets to build the word in the second box.

Write: Finally, practice writing the word in the bottom box.

Print the mats onto cardstock and then laminate them so that you can use Vis-à-vis markers or dry erase markers on the mats.

The Runaway Bunny Printables

The Runaway Bunny copy

The Runaway Bunny is one of those books that will stay on our bookshelf even after the kids are ‘too big’ for the story. I love Margaret Wise Brown’s books and this one is no exception. We’ll be doing a unit on The Runaway Bunny this fall, so these printables were created as a go-along to use with the book. Printables in this pack can be used for preschool as well as kindergarten aged children.

Here’s a peek inside The Runaway Bunny printables:

Runaway Bunny Printables

 

The Runaway Bunny printables include fun activities to tie in with the story ~ vocabulary words, word tracer cards, amazes, syllable counting, story sequencing, 1:1 counting and more! These are intended to help extend some of the learning from the story itself.

Number Word Printables for Read! Build! Write! Mats

I have a few different number word card printables to share with you all today that will go along with the Read! Build! Write! Mats. This coming year we’ll be working more on number words, so I pulled together a few different pages to use with the number words 1 – 20.

Number Word Cards

 

There are two different sets of word cards. One set for the numbers 1-10 allows your child to also count using 1:1 correspondence for the numbers. The other two sets are the number itself along with the number word.

Draw and Journal Pages Printable

Draw and Journal Pages

 

 

Our children have always love the drawing and writing journals that we pick up every year. The only thing that’s hard is having them inside a journal book and not as loose leaf paper. There are many times that I like to include them in a lapbook we are working on or as part of another project we make.

As I’m gearing up for the upcoming school year, I put together some Draw and Journal Pages for the boys to use during their school time and hope that they will help you all out as well! They go along perfectly with the Draw Write Now series of books we absolutely love.

 


 

There are three pages {for now!!} in the free Draw and Journal Pages download. Depending on the ability of your child, there are some with larger spaced lines and one without a center dotted line. Download a copy for yourself and let me know if there are more that you would like to see added!

Preschool Bible Verse Printables ~ Teaching God’s Word

Bible Verse Printables 200

This post is a part of my 10 Day of Teaching God’s Word series

One of the biggest helps to our kids has been using printables for them to remember verses that we are learning. There’s something about having the verse smack in front of your face with a picture clue to help you remember what you are learning.

Our kids have participated in a program with a local church for the last few years and I put together different Bible verse printables for them for those they were studying. The printables typically include an 8 1/2” x 11” page, cut-apart verse strips, and also 4” x 6” cards.

We slip our 4” x 6” cards into a small photo book {usually $1 at Walmart}. The verse strips can be taped or glued together or you can put them in the correct order using a tabletop pocket chart.



 

Preschool Bible Verse Printables

Today I am sharing the preschool Bible verse printables ~ so far there are over 60 verses uploaded!! What you see is just a portion of what is still coming {YAY!!!}. Here’s a little peek at what the full Bible verse printables look like along with one of the sentence strip pages.
