ABC Find It! Bundle

ABC Find It Bundle

I finished the ABC Find It! printable set!  The individual files are still available for FREE as they have been, and I am slowly adding the rest of the files individually. 

ABC Find It Letter A

You can scroll down and the ABC Find It! webpage and see the new files listed near the bottom! A-L {which have been there} have graphics to click on to download, and the rest will be text links. I am working on the individual files now and plan to have them all uploaded within a month!

Want them all now and in one file?  I added it to my Teacher’s Notebook Shop in case you do!  Every little bit supports our family, thank you!

New Alphabet Printables

Alphabet Printables 

I added a new set of Alphabet Printables to our All ABCs page!

I found this adorable clipart while searching for something else and knew I had to put it in a printable!  I wish the letters Ii and Oo had a short vowel sound item, but other than that the sounds are all OK by me. I couldn’t let that stop me! You could print these full size and use for wall posters or play dough mats.  Or, scale them down to make any size flashcard you desire!  Small flashcards are a great addition to ABC Baskets!

Scroll down and look for this graphic on the All ABCs page to download this set!

I wrote about my views on using themes with young kids, and there are certainly a LOT of early childhood themes to choose from! When you begin planning, Pinterest and Google can be a bit overwhelming!  I am creating this series to help you with your planning.  I have gathered all FREE theme based printable packs {mainly early childhood focused, tots-1st grade} that I am aware of and sorted them by letter so you can browse through and get ideas all in one place! I did NOT include holiday based packs, simply because there are so many and they are pretty easy to find when holidays roll around.

I have included free printable theme packs from bloggers around the web including; Homeschool Creations, 2 Teaching Mommies, Spell Outloud, 3 Dinosaurs, Confessions of a Homeschooler, Me & Marie Learning, Ooopsey Daisy, All Our Days, Creative Learning Fun, Royal Baloo, 123 Homeschool 4 Me, Lawteedah, Our Little Monkeys, Creative Preschool Resources, Our Country Road, Homeschool Share, Gift of Curiosity, This Reading Mama, and Over the Big Moon. {if any of you ladies notice an error please let me know!}

If the pack was created by another blogger, I listed their {blog name} in the brackets.  If there aren’t any brackets, I made it!

Bury It! Fun with Phonics


A simple bin filled with rice has provided my kids with hours and hours of entertainment. This is by far their favorite “sensory bin” and it is the easiest one I have made! Burying things in rice and digging them back out again is attractive to most kids, which is where the bury it idea came from for my ABC Find It! activity.

Recently Ladybug has really been enjoying this rice bin for another use, burying her mini alphabet collection objects and digging them out again!

I keep our mini letter objects in a plastic drawer system I got at Home Depot {I think} and it randomly fit inside of a canvas box my mom had {no clue where it came from}. I got the idea for creating a mini drawer set from Counting Coconuts years ago! I won’t bother explaining it all, since she did such a great job, visit her blog for details!


Each week I pull out the little drawer and use it along with our ABC Basket.


The whole burying idea came from Ladybug and once she started, she has asked to do it every week since, with her new mini collection. Sometimes I have bigger items in her ABC Basket and she will add those in too.


She is pretty specific about it being animals and tiny objects, no actual letters are allowed, although I always try!

All sorts of learning happens with the burying, we do tons of oral phonics work while we play together, it really is so simple and she learns so much.


Eventually we will take things up a notch and combine 2 or more sets of objects and sort them. I have always done this {with my boys}, but never with the rice bin! The rice adds a simple element of fun and attraction for her and entices her to want to work on phonics skills with me. Most of the time she has no clue she is even learning, she is just playing in the bin!


Note: Ladybug has never put small objects in her mouth {none of my kids did as tots/babies, which shocks me}, and she is very good at keeping the rice contained. Krash on the other hand, would have had it everywhere at this age! Use rice with discretion {and a blanket/sheet}!

Animal ABC Wall Posters

Animal ABC Wall Posters

One thing I wished I had when I was using Animal ABCs with Ladybug was a full size set of alphabet wall posters.  We are beyond Animal ABC but I thought maybe someone still using it might want something like this too, so I finished up the set I was working on, even though we won’t be using them!

I couldn’t decide on colored or simple, so I made 2 sets.  Each set features the main Animal ABC animal, which emphasizes the most common letter sound.

These are full size pages and could be used as an eBook, full size printables for the wall or a notebook, or you can scale down the pdf file to make them into a smaller set of flashcards or printables.

This set is included for free with the Animal ABC Bundle, and has been added to the private download page.  If you have already purchased you can go back in using the special link and password to download this new set.  If you lost your password, just email me and give me your PayPal email address and I can easily resend your info!

For those of you who don’t own the Animal ABC Bundle, you can purchase it here for $10, OR you can purchase this set by itself from my Teacher’s Notebook Shop here!
