Need Suggestions...

I'm itching to make some new printables for preschoolers. I have a few things that I'm working on, but nothing super huge like some of the ones I've done in the past.

So, I'm asking you all!!

What printables are YOU looking for? Leave a comment and let me know what you would like to see and I'll get my creative juices going!



  • My boy would love themes like Legos, robots, and space. So anything that works on basic skills with those themes. A file folder game, matching or card game, word cards to trace letters that are related words.

  • First, I believe this is the first comment I've left on your blog and I want to say THANK YOU! You've been such an inspiration to me in teaching my 3 year old and I've been using some of your ideas and printables for a couple months now. You are amazing! Keep the creative juices flowing and the awesome preschool ideas coming!

    I would love to see some more simple hands-on crafts and learning ideas for three year olds. I appreciate all you do and thanks again! :)

  • I've been searching for some neat printable play sets for boys that I could laminate and make magnets or city scapes out of cardboard boxes. Also some fun geared towards boys - alphabet games for my little guy!

  • Jolanthe,

    First may I say thank you for sharing all the great printables you have made already. I have been able to use many of them with my children in their learning. I have adapted a few ideas to use with my special needs son, but most I can use as is - thanks!

    Might you consider creating a matching activity. A page with animal silhouettes to be matched with their full color animal picture (visual discrimination). That's just one idea I thought of.

  • My little girl is an older preschooler and is starting to associate words to numbers/colors. How about some printables like... 1-one, 2-two, 3-three, etc.
    R-e-d to the color red, b-l-u-e to the color blue, etc?

  • Thanks for the open forum of ideas. I agree with "My Home of Five" about the spelling of number and color words. Anything that would deal with the upcoming holidays would be great, as well!

  • Rachel -

    Have you seen the number printable cards/words that I made already?

    Check out the 'Preschool Printables' tag in my categories section and see if that is what you are thinking. :)

  • I would love to see some printables that would help with teaching calendar - days of the week, months of the year, etc.
    We have loved using your stuff! Thanks for all you do.

  • Jolanthe, I want to say that I love your printables that you already have. I have several printed and in the years curricullum. Since my daugther is almost four, we are doing a lot of alphabet activities, but some other stuff that we have been doing, and we need more practice worksheets and so forth, is maping activites. Like mapping out the house, or mapping the furniture in a room, that kind of stuff. She is also very into trying to recognize where we are and if we are going the right way.... so I am thinking of also doing basic geography, but I need basic stuff, cause after all she is only four. (I tend to teach too advanced for her and have to bring it down a lot of times...)

  • I love everything that you have already shared!!

    Here are somethings I have been looking for:

    teaching time
    prereading games
    holiday games

  • Maybe some sequencing things. First, second, third, ect.

    {thank you for all the great free things, I really apprecate it}

    By Blogger {leah}, At October 26, 2009 at 9:07 PM  

  • Here are some ones I would love:
    animal classification
    time, my boys are super interested in it.
    more animals (can you tell we love animals)
    I agree on the letter and number matching
    And, I agree with everyone else, you make amazing stuff and I am so glad that you do.

  • Is it too early to think about Christmas printables? For Easter I printed off the events of the Passion Week for our felt board. It took forever to find what I needed! It would be nice to have a complete set in one place for the events leading up to Christ's birth!

  • Different 'Rachel'... :) We are looking for math readiness skills: money, time, sequencing, comparing, patterns, tessalations, etc... YOUR printables are so colorful, sharp, and engaging... THANK YOU for everything that you enrich our family's life with! Truly, you are a God-send! :)

  • Have you shared how you make your I Spy cards? I'm sorry if you have and I missed it, I would love to know how to make some, too. Thanks!
