{Free Printable} Beginning Sounds Matching Game

Beginning Sounds Matching Title Page

Learning letter sounds is a popular activity in our house these days.  I’m in no rush for Wesley to read, but he is wanting to learn more.  He points to various words he sees throughout the day and pretends to read them.  So I’ve been slowly teaching him his letter sounds, because once again, I’m in no rush.

We’ve started playing more board games in the past few months and the boys seem to like the matching games quite a bit.  I decided to make some image cards with matching letters so we could play the matching game while learning.  It’s a bit much for Wesley right now, so we break up the game into smaller batches at a time.

They don’t even have to play the matching game.  They can just place the letter on top of the matching image, like we did in all of these pictures.

In this download, I have the letter tiles, image tiles, and image tiles with corresponding capital letters, in case you have a learner working on matching lower case and upper case.  I imagine we will be working on letter sounds for a while to come, so be on the look out for more printables!

{Free Printable} Dino Dice Math Cards

Dino Dice Math Cards Title Picture

A couple years ago, when Tanner was just starting to learn about addition, I downloaded free dice cards.  They had a little picture of a pumpkin and dice on them.  We loved those cards.  And it was hard to pack them away once the Autumn season was over.  So once I began creating my own printables, I knew this was something I had to make for Wesley!  He likes dinosaurs, and I think alliteration is cute, so I named them ‘Dino Dice’.

Dino Dice Math Cards with Playdoh

They’re pretty straight forward.  You can use clothespins to mark the answer, or in our case, playdoh balls.  Any manipulative will work!

Wesley loves these.  He will go look for them all by himself and sit at his desk and complete all of them.  I hope you love them as well!

Beginning Sounds Clip Cards Finding image that matches letter

I am still having trouble believing Wesley is old enough to start learning his letter sounds.  He has been wanting to do more and more school lately.  I don’t blame him, he has grown up watching his brother learn, and now it’s his turn!

Beginning Sounds Clip Cards

He was going through a clothespin/clip card phase so I created these cards to be used that way.  But you can use any type of manipulative as a marker.  Just clip (or mark) the picture that matches the letter on the card.  They are simple and straight to the point, and Wesley loves them. I hope you enjoy them, too!

{Free Printables} Practice Writing with CVC Words- A, E, I, O, & U

CVC Practice Writing Title Page

The perfect pre-kindergarten summer activity. Practice writing with CVC words!

CVC Practice Writing Ending Sounds

I have really been focusing on preschool printables lately and I started feeling a little bad for Tanner.  So I decided to created some CVC word cards for him so we could just practice and practice while he’s learning new blends/word sounds.

After I printed the cards, I laminated them.  Tanner uses his dry erase markers and we can just erase them when he’s finished. You can also use page protectors.

CVC Practice Writing

I created 4 different options for these cards, for each short vowel: blank notebook paper lines, dotted words for tracing, missing beginning sounds, and missing ending sounds.  This way you can pick and choose what type of learning or review you want to work on.

Please let me know if you like these, and if you would like to see any other types of printables!

{Free Printable} Egg Letter Matching

Egg Letter Matching Free Printable

I promise I have other posts planned that involve more than a printable.  I’ve just been so ‘on-the-go’ lately that making printables have been sort of, relaxing?  I’m also making them for my boys, and I figure I might as well share them with you.  I will be writing a post about Classical Conversations, soon.

In the meantime, I want to share the Egg Letter Matching cards I created for Wesley.  They’re not perfect, because I literally made them in a spur of the moment.  He’s working on learning all of his lowercase letters right now, and with Easter coming up soon, I wanted to create something that was themed a little bit.

He likes these a lot.  I was worried he would just look at the colors to determine the matching egg, but he is actually focusing on the letter at the moment.  I may have to create another set with just one or two colors down the road.

More Printables!

Yes, I really do enjoy making these!  There are two more preschool aged printables coming, and a pre-k/kinder aged printable on it’s way.  I love creating these for my boys, and it makes my heart so happy to see others using them, too!

Free Measurement Clip Cards

I wanted to make some more clip cards for Wesley. He’s starting to become interested in math (he tries to join in while Tanner works on his Math-U-See curriculum), so I created these measurement cards.  He looks at the image, and measures how long it is by counting the blocks.

Measurement Clip Card

If you’ve read my Tot-School post, you know I like having trays and bins set up so the activities are easily accessible.  The clip cards are small, and Wes will play with them often throughout the day, if I make them available to him.  He was a bit tired of using the actual clothespins the past couple of days, so we decided to make little balls of playdoh to squish onto the correct answer.  Even though this was much too easy for Tanner, he wanted to join in as well.

{Free Printable} Animal Counting Clip Cards

Free Printable- Animal Counting Clip Cards

I have always loved using clip cards in our homeschool preschool.  It is a great way to implement a little fine motor practice into an activity.  And these animals!  They’re so cute!

Free Animal Counting Clip Cards

Don’t worry if you don’t have any/enough clothespins.  You can always use little balls of playdoh to push onto the correct answer, or use a manipulative to cover up the number.  Or, just let your child use their finger to point.

Animal Counting Clip Cards

I’ve created two sets of the animal counting clip cards.  One is in color, and one is black and white, to help save on printer ink.  I hope your children loves these as much as mine do!

Happy preschooler

{FREE Printable} Capital Letter Mazes

Free Capital Letter Mazes

I’ve used letter mazes for a couple years.  It was something Tanner enjoyed doing in his homeschool preschool lessons, but it wasn’t something he loved.  I didn’t start using them until our second year of preschool when Tanner was 4.

Capital Letter B Maze

Lately the boys have requested to watch the ‘Minion’ movies (Despicable Me 1 and 2, and Minions).  Everyday during free time.  So I found a printable unit activity from 1+1+1=1 that was all minion themed.  Wesley loved the entire unit.  But the page he continued to go back to, over and over, was the letter maze.  He did it close to 10 times back to back.  Forward and backward.  I immediately knew I needed to create my own letter mazes for him, A through Z. This is such a great activity for fine motor skills, and pencil grip and control.  Wesley still has a way to go with working on his grip, but he’s trying.  Watching his brother “do school” for all his life has really motivated him to join in! He’s so happy to be old enough now.

Capital Letter B Maze - The Boundless Homeschool

When I showed the pages to him this morning, he was so excited!  He wanted to do every single one.  After trying to contain the pages on the desk for him to redo, I decided to throw them all into a 3-ring binder.  He is currently carrying it around with him, and doing a page here and there in between playing with his brother.

Free Letter Mazes - The Boundless Homeschool

I will be creating lowercase letter mazes and number mazes to add to these capital letter mazes soon! I’m really enjoying creating printables, so if there is anything you’d like to see, let me know!  I have plans for quite a few new things!

I hope you enjoy! Please, if you print these out, take pictures! I would LOVE to see them in action!

Learning while playing, what could be better?

I am a big fan of play based learning.  Although I’ve “done school” with my kids since they were very small, it was never a strict sit-down type of learning.  It’s fun for the kids, and for me!

My boys love playdoh.  Homemade, store bought, food based, it doesn’t matter.  Playdoh mats were always one of my favorites to use when I first started totschool with both boys.  It’s so easy. Just print them out, laminate them (or place them in a plastic page protector), and you’re done! We also use them with dry erase markers (in the page protectors), to work on fine motor writing skills, and sometimes my boys will just use crayons and markers to color them.

 

I’ve created 3 sets of {FREE} playdoh mats: letters, numbers, and shapes.  I hope you enjoy!
