2D and 3D Shapes Printable Unit!

This thing took FOREVER to make. 

I'm not kidding. If you look at my last post - I've been working on and off on it since then.

I drew 99% of everything in it by hand, including the font. But it's done. It's FINALLY done!

Here's the spiel from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store:

How many faces does a cone have? What's the difference between a hexagon and a heptagon? Is a square also a rhombus? Is a semicircle a polygon? 

Explore these and other burning geometrical questions as your students identify, categorize, and build 2D and 3D shapes! Aligned to Common Core standards, this comprehensive unit is fully written to explain to the students the intricacies that your textbook may have missed.

Topics Include:

  • Polygon Identification
  • Vertices and Edges
  • Prefixes for Polygons
  • Regular and Irregular Polygons
  • Special Quadrilaterals: Rectangle, Square, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Trapezoid
  • What is the Third Dimension?
  • Construction and Analysis of 3D Shapes: Rectangular Prism, Cone, Cylinder, Square-Based Pyramid, Hexagonal Prism, Cube, Tetrahedron, Sphere, Triangular Prism

Assessments included: 2D shape quiz (matching) and 3D shape report.
Answer keys are included.
Also included are extra book and video recommendations, all of which are available via the Epic! App.

Interested? Check it out at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. :)

2-D & 3-D Shapes: Clipart & Poster

Long time, no post.

Life, eh? It gets in the way of bloggin'.

But not, apparently, of making stuff.  Check out the new offering in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It's a bundled set of hand-drawn shape clipart, a shape poster, and even some nifty borders for worksheets! 

Along with the poster and border, I have included one of each of the following shapes:

Circle, Oval, Semicircle, Triangle, Square, Rhombus, Rectangle, Pentagon, Hexagon, Heptagon, Parallelogram, Octagon, Nonagon, Decagon, Sphere, Cylinder, Cone, Pyramid, Cube, Triangular Prism, Hexagonal Prism, Rectangular Prism

The shapes and poster are saved at a very high dpi, so they can be resized easily for bulletin boards.

Thanks for checking them out!

I've been kind of quiet lately because I have a few things in the works. Tonight I just finished one of them. I am pleased to introduce to you my set of Charlotte's Web inspired clipart!

This download contains 24 of my hand-drawn and painted images, inspired by the classic children's book, Charlotte's Web. 12 of the images are in color and the other 12 are black and white outlines, which can be used to create coloring sheets for your students. All of the images are high-quality (300 ppi) PNG files with transparent backgrounds so that the images can be resized, layered, and reoriented with ease.

Included are color and black and white versions of:

Mr. Zuckerman
The goose
The gander
The sheep and the lamb (1 image)

Tutoring Questionnaires and Contract

Hello Friends,

I just wanted to let you know about a new product for anyone who does tutoring, downloadable here in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

If you tutor, you want to make a contract to cover yourself legally, and you will want some forms for your prospective tutees and their families to fill out. These forms will give you valuable information to set goals and expectations for your tutoring sessions. I use these forms myself, and I hope that you will find them helpful. Enjoy!

New Font: Sunday Morning Grace {Free Download!}

Sometimes I find myself working on a project that needs a special font. However, finding one that fits the bill AND is licensed for commercial use is a real buzz kill. That's why I love the iFontMaker app. In about 20 minutes I can have a new font up and running with very minimal effort. If you don't have this app, but you are a font-aholic, check it out in the app store. You won't be disappointed.

Anyway, here is the font that I came up with for the project I was working on. Warning: It's very girly and curly and cute.

The ampersand has a curlicue! Gah!

You can download this font (and hundreds more) for free here. All of my fonts are public domain {aka commercial use ok}, but not all of them in the gallery are. Please make sure you read the license info on each one and respect the creator's wishes.

So here's the latest thing that I've been working on. It's rainbow clipart! I know you need some of this in your life!

This set contains 68 individual files and an instruction/idea booklet. It is not a font. The files are saved as .gif with transparent backgrounds for easy document and website use. These are high-quality images that can be easily resized in a Word or PowerPoint document.

Included are the letters A-Z, both uppercase and lowercase, the numbers 0-9, a period, comma, exclamation point, question mark, pound sign (hashtag) and dollar sign.

What can you make with these images?
*Make your newsletters pop with an accent of color! 
*Print, cut out, and laminate large letters for bulletin boards! 
*Print small classroom labels! 
*Make a rainbow alphabet poster! 
*Use them in your PowerPoint presentations! 
*Make your students oooh and ahhh at your mad rainbow-colored skills!
The font used is “Poppins” by Indian Type Foundry; commercial license applied. 

Please check out my TPT store for this awesome set and other coordinating products to make your classroom all matchy-matchy!

Tes Teach with Blendspace

I'm trying out a new multimedia presentation tool called "Tes Teach with Blendspace." It's new and a little buggy, but I see great potential in it! You can upload pictures or files, add videos or links, and then organize all of these components into a single presentation, lesson, or unit. You can even add teaching notes and student quizzes for your students to take individually. Check out the Squishy Circuit lesson plan I made by clicking here.
