Months Doodles

Sorry for the double posting in the same day, but it was late last night when I finished this set and didn't want to upload at 2 a.m.  Yes, I was up until 2 a.m. on the night before Thanksgiving.  That's what happens when my brain won't shut off, when I know I can sleep in, and I have so many things I want to draw, create, or read.  And once I start something I have to finish it.  I hate having a bazillion projects going at the same time.  Especially when I've got drawing on the brain and also creating and planning for upcoming things in my classroom.  Sometimes I have to force myself to just go to bed.

This digital clip art set set includes the months of the year in my very own Sketchy Capital Letter Doodles in 5 different designs/colors:

  • Plain BW
  • Colored
  • Grayscale
  • BW with Graphic
  • Colored with Graphic

Use for calendar toppers for your calendar board or for creating calendars or newsletters for your classroom.

Presents Doodles with FREEBIE Bow

I'm on the drawing streak again and decided to add some presents that I have been wanting to make for some time.  Thought I'd start with these three colors that might work well for making cards for birthdays or what not.  This clip art set includes a few different varieties of presents in three colors (pink, blue, and lime green) as well as BW images that work great for layering in projects.  And of course I needed a few different designs:  Polka Dot, Stripes, Zebra Print, and Plain.

You can purchase this set HERE at my TPT store.
And you can find it HERE at my Teacher's Notebook clip art shop.

And for your FREEBIE that goes with this you go!

Hanukkah Doodles w/FREEBIE Star of David

This next week we start a brand new mini-theme on Hanukkah.  Was scrambling to create things a few weeks back and purchased THIS awesome set from Melonheadz Illustrating.  I was a bit disappointed because I had to purchase the line art and the color bundles separately.  I thought they came together when I purchased it.  Spent $14.00 just on her Hanukkah set.  Wish I would have had more time and been able to draw my own, but ya gotta share the love somehow, right?  Don't get me wrong...SHE IS AMAZING and I wish I could draw as AWESOME as her.  Finally, this last week I got creative and decided to try my hand at drawing some Hanukkah clips.

I haven't been inspired for a while, but I just purchased a new drawing app called iDraw and I love it.  Great for nice clean lines.  The only downfall is I still like my Art Studio for coloring in and doing the filtering.  But how lucky could I get?!?  I can send the images I draw in iDraw to Art Studio right from my iPad.  Happy Dance!!!!!

You can purchase this Hanukkah Doodles set HERE at my TPT store.
You can also find it HERE at my TN store.

Well, I uploaded this file today before I was actually finished drawing the set.  I found the sit to be really fun and I think I just found my new place to edit and add filters to my images.  (That's me getting all giddy, getting another clip art set done.)  Here's the latest thumb that includes the added images:

Here's a FREEBIE BW Star of David for you:

Santa Craftivity FREEBIE

Looking through my documents folder this week and came across this project that I started last year about this time and never finished.  Thought I'd put it out there as a Christmas FREEBIE!  Have your student make this Santa craft after you do any creative writing around the Christmas/Santa theme.

Simply copy the Santa body parts on card stock or construction paper, cut a piece of colored construction paper to glue the writing sheet to, and you'll be all set!

You can find this HERE at my TPT store.

Hanukkah and Kwanzaa Vocabulary Book

Still thinking of things to make for our upcoming new mini-units on Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.  Our first graders really are engaged when we do our thematic cut-apart sentences, so was very thankful to get those done. Finished up the word wall cards, cut them out, and sent them off to get laminated at the AEA.  Got two mini books done for the unit, and finally finish the vocabulary books:  All About Hanukkah and All About Kwanzaa.  I took clips from the cut apart sentences and the mini books as I wrote this, so that it would be familiar text and hopefully our first graders can make the connections after hearing a variety of different ways. These two unit have some tough vocabulary words, so wanted to expose them to the terms multiple ways.

Next step is to get some read aloud books ordered as well.  I think my co-worker, Sara, is going to take care of that for us.  Now looking on Pinterest for some video clips and maybe we'll be set!

You can find this set HERE at my TPT store.

Cut Apart Sentences and Stories Templates

I had a request for my cut-apart sentences templates today so I thought I would whip that up and make that as an item for sale in my TPT store.  It's nice to have a variety of sentences to choose from throughout the unit.  I love being able to customize things to meet my classroom needs, so thought this might be a great something to share with others.

These templates are for persona/classroom use ONLY and are NOT to be used for items that you create for commercial resale.  Please respect my design.  Thank you!

You can find this item HERE at my TPT store.
