Easy No-Prep Bug ABC Find Printable

We have had tons of fun with the different ABC finds! I thought a bug one would be perfect for the spring. I know that bugs are one of our favorite themes.

ABCs are something you work on year round and it is nice to have a change while kids are learning. This bug find came as a request. I love making the finds because they are a fun way to change up learning.

These are no-prep which means just print and use!

On this bug set we changed it up and used In the Garden Critter Counters to cover the letters. This was a fun change for our bug theme.

Paper Roll Stamped Earth for Earth Day

One of my favorite themes about Earth day is remembering that we are trying to take care of the Earth and how important it is.

We love reusing things and I’m always looking to see how we can use something again. Paper rolls are something we collect around the house a lot. Since we are cleaning out things I thought it would be fun to use a few of them to make a paper roll stamped earth!

My girls often have ideas of what they want to do. Several years ago we made paper roll flowers and we loved it. They wanted to do an Earth Day craft for our themed week. I had enough rolls to make the flowers again but they wanted to try and make it an Earth with them.

We read the book Recycle!: A Handbook for Kids by Gail Gibbons. I love her books. We talked about reusing things in the house. We talked about how we reused the paper rolls for this painting project.

What you need for the activity:

I put the rolls together and pressed some rolls to put inside the rolls to add more stamping area.

The first part they did was put paint on their paper plates and then mixed it around with the paper rolls. They each got to choose how much and where the paint would go.

Then they got busy stamping the paper all over. This made several different types of stamps on the page.

After they got done with their stamping they wanted to finger paint in all the circles to match what they stamped. I love that they had the ideas of what they wanted to do.

Earth Day Clip Cards for Comparing Numbers

Earth Day has so many fun themes that you can work with. I love that so many themes are flexible in how we use them. There are some math concepts that people have been asking for. I know one that we have been working on is greater than & less than. It is one that you can use different levels of learning.

There Earth Day themed cards for comparing numbers is a great way to work on these cards. Plus they are clip cards and a lot of kids just love this style of learning.

This is a great addition to the Earth Day Printables on the Site!

The cards are meant to be really easy to use. I have always liked clip cards for counting and beginning sounds. It has been fun to create new types of cards for math. These cards work great with the Earth Day Learning Pack.

The cards have two bins with numbers on them. They have choices for < = > on each cards. This was to make it easy for them to see everything. If they are having problems with the numbers you can pull out the help desk for second grade and have them find the numbers on the 100 chart.

There are four cards per page. This makes it easy to print and cut up. I laminated our cards and cut them out. I lay out the cards with something to use for the clipping part. I often ask what they wanted to use for the clipping part. This time we use clothes pins. You can see below how I set up the cards.
