I am running aspecial on my membership printables!! The special is for a twelve month membership for the price of six months and contains all of the membership printables from the past twelve years plus the new material that is added weekly. The special ends midnight Sunday July 31st so if you get a chance please check out the special here.
The free membership printable this week is polka dot numbers. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I use these numbers for a match and clip activity by having the children find the numbers that are the same and then clip them together with a clothespin. I also use them for sequencing by having the children lay then out in numerical order and then place the matching number on top of the first set of numbers.
I made two sets of numbers 0-30 in twelve different colors so the children can either match the numbers with the same color or numbers with different colors.
I also glue the numbers on to craft sticks and use them as circle time props for number identification and review. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday July 31st ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the polka dot letters are located.
Buzz ... buzz ... buzz ... the free membership printable this week is a bumble bee color match file folder game. I printed all patterns on cardstock paper and glued the color mats inside a file folder. I then cut out the color and color word circles and laminated them.
I made the game with twelve different colored bumble bees and included both color circles and colors words (in both black and white as well as color). I put self-adhesive magnets on the back of the circles to add a little weight to them so they do not slide around too much. They are also easier for the children to pick up.
In this activity children place the color circles on top of the matching bumble bees. They then take the color word circles and place those on top of the bumble bees. Once the children have mastered placing the correct color words on the bees we switched to the black and white version so they are not relying on the color of the words for matching.
Play continues until all bumble bees have been match. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday July 24th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the bumble bee fine motor sheets are located.
The free membership printable this week is watermelon alphabet clip which is a great activity for letter recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I set the watermelon slices out along with enough clothespins for all of the cards. I made this set with upper to upper ... upper to lower ... and lower to lower so you would have a choice of what you wanted your early learners to work on.
In this activity children clip a clothespin on the matching letter on each watermelon slice. Play continues until all cards have been clipped. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday July 17th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the watermelon number clip is located.
We went to a chalk fest recently and there were really some amazing chalk artists there. I put together a page with full size images for you to view and perhaps show your early learners. The images were all drawn on the sidewalk with chalk and liquid chalk.

I made an ice cream cone color match to help work on color identification. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out.
I glued the twelve ice cream cones on to a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock paper that you can find at most craft stores ... amazon ... and walmart.
In this activity children put the loose color circles on the same colored ice cream cones. Play continues until all colors have been matched. You can grab the patterns here.
