Fall Theme Kindergarten Literature Unit

Count Down to Fall Kindergarten Literature Unit

We have a brand new seasonal Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack which is expanded to include more activities than our units in the past! Celebrate fall with this new set based on the book Count Down to Fall by Fran Hawk!

Looking for our other Kindergarten Literature Units? See them all here!

Set the stage for your FALL theme by gathering all of your fall toys and books! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.

Don’t have a lot of fall toys and books? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool!


Be sure to purchase the book Count Down to Fall or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in all sorts of fun fall theme books to bring the theme alive!

This is such a beautiful book with SO many fun skills to focus on. The printables were created to go along with all of the animals and leaves featured in the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

AFRICA Country by Country

AFRICA Country by Country Geography Printables

Many of you may remember our USA State by State that was released in 2017. It was created with the idea of keeping it simple and learning the basics. We had great success with this so I have decided to expand! Eventually I plan to have all of the continents, and today I have AFRICA for you! AFRICA Country by Country is filled with pages similar to the format of USA State by State but with a few differences I will highlight below.

Africa Country by Country (2)

Each country has one page with a place to write the country’s name and the capital city’s name. There is also a small map of each country and a large blank map of Africa to color in the country’s location on the map. I also included the country’s flag to color and one interesting fact about each country. I had SO much fun choosing the facts and I highly recommend taking a few minutes to do a quick online search for “Fun Facts About _________” as you go through each country. We are doing our countries in alphabetical order, but you can do them in any order!

Africa Country by Country (9)

A few other helpful pages are included in this set, which will help with some of the items on the individual country pages.

Africa Map & Regions of Africa Map

Africa Country by Country (8)  Africa Country by Country (7)

Flags of Africa and Countries & Capitals

Africa Country by Country (5)  Africa Country by Country (6)

In addition to the pages for each country, there’s also a sheet at the front to record each country as you learn it. The map gets filled in as he works through the states one by one.

Africa Country by Country (3)

Another fun page I included is a sheet to record countries you’ve been to! Sadly, this one will be blank for my kids, but hopefully for some of you this will be useful! I hope someday my kids get to fill in a bunch of these!

Africa Country by Country (4)

I used our binding machine to bind the pages together to create a book that’s easy to work through. Not sure how I made it so long as a homeschooler without my binding machine!

New 1+1+1=1 Shop

Shop Header

It’s been on the to-do list for years, and finally with Teacher’s Notebook shutting down next month, I got the kick in the pants I needed to get my own shop up and running! I have spent hours and hours uploading and updating to get this new shop ready and I hope you find it easy to navigate!  There just might be a typo or error and I ask that you DO let me know! I want to get things fixed if there is a problem! 

I’d love to give you a little tour of the new shop and made a video tour for those of you who like to watch, and below the video you’ll find a visual ‘tour’ with graphics!

One of the cool things about our new shop is the member section {note – this has nothing to do with our Members Only PowerPoint product}. This is a feature that will allow you to set up a free account to gain access to freebies and also keep track of your purchases! 

Member Account

Shop Freebies

Once logged into your account, your screen will look like this {below} and you will be able to easily download your freebies and click on the links on the left to see purchases and update your profile!

Account Screenshot

The homepage features a few ways to sort and find products, hopefully making the browsing process simple for you! On the left you see category sorting, and on the top right there is a drop-down menu with different sorting options.

Shop Home

Our main curriculum bundles are what people are often looking for and those have separate landing pages that can be found in the drop-down menu at the top of the site. When you hover over the “Shop Home” button, the menu drops down as shown below.


I truly hope this new shop is simple to navigate, that was my goal! I appreciate those of you who purchase our products, it is such a blessing to our family! If you made it this far I want to thank you with a 10% off discount code that is good for the rest of 2018!
