Printable Ideas…

My hubby is on vacation this week and at the moment I am curled up in bed and trying to avoid some discomfort, namely a nasty kidney stone that seems to have taken residence in my body and now wants to get out.

Resting for me takes on many forms, one of them being ‘creative’ ~ so I figured I’d ask you all if there were any specific printables that you are looking for. While I may not be able to make them all, it will help me get my mind off the present. :)

So…leave a comment and let me know! Preschool or not ~ is there a printable that you are looking for?

  • I would like some long vowel printables for my first grader...maybe some file folder games, etc. Cannot seem to find any. Thanks!

  • Amber ~

    Be sure to look here too ~ I have some color printables here: http://www.homeschoolcreations.com/preschoolcolorsandshapes.html

  • I am looking for shapes other than the basics for my four year old class. I need rhombus, hexagon, octagon, pentagon and trapazoid in addition to the basics triangle, square, circle, rectangle, oval, heart, and star.

    Thanks Kathy

    p.s. I love your printables and use them all the time in my class

  • I, too, am looking for short and long vowel printables. There just doesn't seem to be much out there. I really appreciate all you do. You're printables are always great!

    By Blogger Mandy, At November 29, 2010 at 8:48 PM  

  • Hope you pass that quickly. I've never experienced that before but I feel for you!

  • I would love the long vowel (silent e) printables. I've used and appreciated your other ones as well.. thanks!

    By Blogger Heather, At November 29, 2010 at 9:30 PM  

  • I agree with several others, vowel printables would be great. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

  • I know it's a little OC, but I'd like preschool specific workbox labels!

    Take good care of yourself!

  • Hi. I'm a first time commenter (I think), but have enjoyed your blog and printables for about a year now. You are definitely an inspiration to this new homeschooler! Thank you. I hope you pass that stone soon.

    Just today I was looking for a file folder game or something about temperature (reading a thermometer and matching it to maybe how cool/warm the temps is, maybe what clothes would be needed then based on the temperature of the thermometer). It's for my 1st grader.

    I like the short/long vowel idea also! We always need more work on that!

    Thank you!!

  • Kidney stones are no fun! Love your blog, just saved the 'Make a Bunny' game. Do you have a "Make a Snowman' game? I've tried searching online, but can only find interactive games, not a printable. Thanks! Feel better!

  • Wow, I can't believe you can even think about doing anything with that kind of discomfort.

    However, it would be fun to see some activities geared towards pre-primer and primer dolch sight words that I could use with my emergent reader.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    By Blogger Brandy, At November 29, 2010 at 11:15 PM  

  • Oh gosh, I'm so sorry to hear of your stone. I've been told they can be excuricatingly painful. Healing prayers for you.

    Seems odd to be asking for something when you are ill but you did ask... :)

    I have a 3rd and a 5th grader and would love a book report printable for them.

    I love your style and have used and still using your geography printables.

  • Oh, Jolanthe! I'm sorry. Kidney stones are the pits :(

    By Blogger Kenj, At November 30, 2010 at 2:04 AM  

  • I hope you feel better soon. I enjoy reading your blog. We love using your Geography printables and you have been so much an inspiration to us that we started using Galloping the Globe this year.

    Thank you so much for all your do. Praying for a smooth recovery for you. Take care.

  • Oh no! Hope you are feeling better soon.

    I am looking for something for my non-readers to help them learn some Bible Memory verses:

    Isaiah 9:2a
    Isaiah 9:6

    Thanks!

  • I am looking for sort of simple TANGRAMS, which I can cut out and create different things --like train engine, cars, house etc.

    Thanks

    By Blogger Spinning Memories, At November 30, 2010 at 4:36 AM  

  • I like the tangrams idea. Maybe something to go along with each letter of the alphabet... :)

    Praying for you! Get better soon!

    By Blogger Carissa, At November 30, 2010 at 6:16 AM  

  • Another thought, printables for categorizing and classifying. We did one from 1+1+1=1 for Thanksgiving and my son loved it.

    Thank you

    By Blogger Carissa, At November 30, 2010 at 6:21 AM  

  • WOW, hope you get to feeling better. I know you have lots of requests but I will throw my hat in the ring as I am desperate to find something on Suffix, prefix and root words for my 3rd grader. I can't find anything so far, I have been looking for two days
    Thank you

    By Blogger The Adventurer, At November 30, 2010 at 7:16 AM  

  • So sorry that you are not feeling well...kidney stones...ouch!
    Since you asked--I'd love to have printables for the American girls, specifically Kirsten. I am doing a study of her 6 books starting in January and I've seen homeschoolshare's lapbook pieces. Notebooking sheets, some sort of game for reviewing, etc. I'll be using it with a 3rd and 4th grader and the 3rd grader is not a strong reader yet.
    Thanks!! I love your printables and use them ALL the time.

    By Blogger Heather, At November 30, 2010 at 9:06 AM  

  • Since you are asking . . . Cubbie AWANA verse printables would be great that would allow the Cubbie to write their verse out using dotted lines.

    Hope you feel better!

    By Blogger Jodi, At November 30, 2010 at 9:30 AM  

  • I have been looking for a printable fox that can stand alone or can be used as a pattern for felt. Can be cutesy or normal, just not tons of detail.

    By Blogger Rebekah, At November 30, 2010 at 10:54 AM  

  • Wow, you have so many requests already! We'd love to have (for our US Geography) a fun form to list famous people we're studying for each state. Right now we're simply listing (as we study them) the person's name, years they lived, and what they're famous for. However, our form is very boring and plain. I could probably think of more printables I'd like, but I think you have enough requests to last you for quite awhile. : ) I pray you're feeling better very soon--soon enough to enjoy the rest of your husband's vacation. I've never had kidney stones, but I have had gallstones...so I feel for you!

    By Blogger Debbie, At November 30, 2010 at 11:02 AM  

  • Sorry you around feel well. My dad gets kidney stones and I can tell they aren't fun! I would love something that could go along with the Christmas Around the World unit we will be doing the next 3 weeks.

    By Blogger Amy, At November 30, 2010 at 11:02 AM  

  • I hope you feel better quickly. It's great that your husband is home to take care of you and your kids. If you get a chance I'd love Christmas dot marker pages...semi-complex/more dots to fill -or if you know where to find them, maybe you could post a link :) We will pray for you :)

    By Blogger Love, At November 30, 2010 at 11:59 AM  

  • maybe something seasonal! Sammy is having fun w/ all sorts of Christmas printables this month.. the more the merrier.. sorry couldn't resist! Drink drink drink! You will know when your going to pass it.. but at least it didn't hurt as bad then as it did when it left the kidney.

    By Blogger Lindsay, At November 30, 2010 at 1:27 PM  

  • I hope you are feeling better soon! Good thing your husband is able to be there to help you out! Right now, I would love to have some kind of a history timeline. Something that would visually organize all the different things we study... from the ancients to modern times. We are also currently working on common vs. proper nouns so that would be helpful too!

    By Blogger Amanda, At November 30, 2010 at 4:53 PM  

  • UGH! I fear those things!! Hang in there. I will pray. I like the tanagram idea!

    By Blogger K-tribe, At November 30, 2010 at 5:34 PM  

  • I'm so sorry to hear your in pain!! Never had them but my Dad did, and I still remember his agony. Praying for you girl!

    By Blogger Shannon, At November 30, 2010 at 10:24 PM  

  • My hubby and I were joking about them today! I drink 6 Cokes a day! Yes 6! Well today was my first day to NOT have 1. But the last time I did this I drank lots of water and had major kidney stones, I stayed in the hospital and everything! So crazy!!!! Anyway, my friend told me to take 1 tsp. of virgin coconut oil daily to help break them up. I hope it works because I am not going to the hospital, we just finished paying off that ridiculous bill last year! I know the pain your in and I'm so sorry!

    By Blogger mommy4, At November 30, 2010 at 10:53 PM  

  • I hope you feel better very soon!

    I would love some very beginner book report ideas. Something fun to fill out for the kiddo. Just with basic things (main character, main idea, setting, etc). I am having a rough time finding fun things like that
    Thanks!

    By Blogger Cajunrose, At November 30, 2010 at 11:26 PM  

  • Hope you feel better soon. I would love some type of review printables for all the definitions the kids learn in First Language Lessons, even like a matching game or some other type of game.

  • I've never posted on your blog before, but I'm an avid reader. :)

    I HAD to post a comment on this just to tell you that I know EXACTLY how you feel. I hope it passes SOON!!!!

    And I agree with someone's comment earlier: I don't know HOW ON EARTH you can focus on anything else, but I'm definitely impressed. :)

    By Blogger Lynette, At December 1, 2010 at 7:20 PM  

  • Hope you are feeing better and on a road of recovery!! My son, who is 4, LOVES mario and would over some preschool related activities. He LOVES numbers and time too!
