Books of The Old and New Testament Free Printable Songs

One of the great things about teaching my own children is how many new things I get to learn. I find that every time I go to prepare a Bible lesson for my children I most always pick up a new fact that I didn’t know before. I often add in facts that weren’t included in the lesson as well. Some days I really love teaching them.

I sometimes feel disadvantaged because I didn’t go to Sunday School or church or christian school as a child. So some of the basic things like the names of 12 apostles or the books of the Bible were not things that I memorized as a child. I can’t help but be reflective often as I prepare lessons and songs for my kids.

As an adult I sometimes find myself, smiling, I’m so lucky that my children will learn the Bible from a young age. I know idea what they will remember when they are 30, but I am fortunate they will have many hours learning bible during their school time.

For this weeks printable song, I am including the “Books of the New Testament,” and the “Books of the Old Testament”.

books of the bibile free printable song card previewAs a young adult I had to learn the books of the New Testament for a class I was taking, but I never did learn the books of the Old Testament. I always thought that as I continued to read my Bible each year that I would just some how learn them over time.

That did not happen. (haha) I am hoping that by teaching them to my children I will learn them eventually. I am fairly certain that my children already know them better than I do.

I wonder how long til they figure out that Brining in the Sheaves sound so awfully similiar tro their Books of the Bible Song.

Tr Phonics Blend Free Printable Worksheet Pack

We are using A beka this year for K5 we used it last year for K4 and so far we really like it. We are nearing our 100th day of school and went ahead and started doing the special sounds and phonic blends. We follow along pretty closely with the lesson plan, but we are just doing the flash cards as she learns them. My 6 year old is loving it and I wanted to print her a few worksheets to go along with the lessons she has been enjoying so much. I found a couple things on Teachers Pay Teachers worth checking out, but I love to make worksheets so I went ahead and made a set to go with the tr consonant blend. Most of the free printables I saw (and I admit I didn’t look long, because I guess I wanted to make a worksheet!) were a little advanced for my Kindergarten student.

tr consonant blend free printable worksheet pack kindergarten - smartandsavvymomI’m not sure if this format will work for all the special sounds and consonant blends, but I am looking forward to making a couple more of these sets. I included 4 worksheets in this pack so you can split them up over the course of a school week.

First a coloring sheet emphasizing the basic blend. We have a train on the flash card that came with our curriculum so I went ahead with that image. You definitely don’t need to have the same curriculum as we do to use thee worksheets though. At the bottom of this worksheet is a place to trace and write the word train.

Next up a follow the path worksheet. My kids both love these. I have actually pruchased 2 workbooks of just mazes because they love them so much. Nothing like helping the tractor find it’s way to the barn, right?

Next worksheet has your student match the word to the picture. I used simple words that my 6 year old can read for herself. Of course there are a ton of words with this beginning sound, but I wanted to use words that could be easily pictured and maybe even read without help from teacher.

Last I lined up a bunch of different pictures so that my 6 year old could circle only the ones where the “tr” sound is heard as the beginning sound. I feel pretty certain that my daughter is going to like this one most, and I am wishing that I had time to make more like it, but alas. I could get lost for sure thinkingĀ  of all things my daughter likes and I don’t find time to do more of with her, but let’s just keep it positive. Added a little hint to remind my student that tr says the “tr sound like in trunk.”

Free Homeschool Planner from Confessions of a Homeschooler

confessions free homeschool plannerI’ve come to the realization that with my second child starting preschool this year, I am going to have to get my homeschool lessons more organized. I just went lesson by lesson with one student last year, but I cannot do that this year. I was pretty happy to find that Confessions of a Homeschooler has a special going for the month of September; you can get her Arrow Style Lesson Planner for Free! She has itĀ  a couple of other styles as well for only $5.

These are available for instant download. So you will have to either punch holes and put them in a binder or take them to a local office supply store to get them bound in a notebook form. Also you will need a pdf viewer to be able to view and print them. I have used things from this website before and I like a lot of what I have purchased. Love her letter practice sheets for my little ones and am looking forward to using this planner, though I might go back and purchase a floral one after I check it out.
