Five Free Downloads {5 Fab Freebies Friday}


Betsy Stout over at Notebooking Nook has created a new link-up for sharing freebies every Friday. Here are the rules:

Post 5 freebies to your blog or website, along with a link back to the 5 Fab Freebies Friday link-up. The freebies can be downloads you have created, or links to great resources you have discovered. (Just don't break any copyright laws.) Then head over to Betsy's blog and share the link to your post.

I probably won't be participating every week, but I have a few new printables to share this week so I thought this would be a fun way to do it. And since tomorrow will be absolutely crazy-busy around here, I'm taking Betsy's lead and posting a day early. Here are my 5 "Fab" Freebies:

I've mentioned before that I don't actively try to teach my preschoolers their colors, but I'm also not against activities that just-so-happen to teach them. For instance, my three year old, CJ, has had fun using the color sorting card I made him. His siblings and I also like to name the colors of different objects he sees. And he has had the opportunity to see what happens when colors mix together when we made "fireworks" in a glass of water and when he played with colored vinegar and baking soda. Here is a page I made for him to experiment with color mixing while he plays with his finger paints.


2.  A-D Letter Recognition Cards
I've been using these cards with CJ to help him learn his letters. Since we've only made it through "d" in our alphabet notebooks, the cards I've made only go through the letter "d." I printed these on cardstock and cut them into strips. My original plan was to have him use clothespins to mark the matching numbers, but so far we have just pointed to the letters and talked about which ones were the same. If your child enjoys using the clothespins for this activity, you might also want to download my free clothespin counting cards.

I found a really cute pumpkin clipart alphabet that was just begging to be used. I was also trying to find some fun activities for the kids to do during Thanksgiving vacation. Ta-da! A fun little page for creating an acrostic poem about Thanksgiving.

4. Thanksgiving Notebook Pages
Notebook pages are like shoes. Sometimes you don't really need new ones, but they are still fun to have. That must be why I end up making a new set every Thanksgiving. Here are three new ones to add to your collection. I also have a set of Thanksgiving Copywork available for sale at Currclick.



5.The Study of Five Lapbook
Limited Time Freebie! Many years ago there was a request on one of the Yahoo Groups I subscribed to for ideas to create a lapbook about the number five. The mother who asked for suggestions was wanting to create a lapbook for her daughter's fifth birthday. Since my own daughter was also nearing that eventful birthday, I started brainstorming ideas. Due to a computer crash, the lapbook I started was lost. However, I recently went back and recreated that project. This lapbook will be available free through the month of October. Sorry, this lapbook is no longer available.

That's all for Fab 5 Freebie Friday here at Lilliput Station. Head on over to Notebooking Nook for more fabulous freebies.
