Color by Code Activities- Plus a FREEBIE

Do your students love Color by Code activities?  I love them because they provide students the opportunity to practice fine motor coloring while focusing on important skills.  I also love that these printables are more engaging than a typical worksheet.  The Color by Code sheets require students to think, answer questions, and then color to reveal a fun background.

I wanted to share a look inside my Color by Code packets with you and also give you a FREE sample packet.  This bundle was designed with the primary classroom in mind.  These sheets are great to have on hand for fast finishers, math and literacy centers/stations, morning work, homework, AND most importantly these printables are easy to prep if you need an activity to leave with a sub.  The flu season is the worst this year that I can remember, and if you're like me, and have kids, you never know when you may be out with a sick kid.  I always say I need to set up a tent outside my doctor's office.  ;)   



This bundle includes 30 different themes and 207 printables.  You can scroll down through the pictures to see a sample from each packet and a look at what skills are addressed.

The following skills are included in this bundle:

Presidents' Day and UPDATES

Since it is the first day of February, I wanted to share my new crafts for Presidents' Day with you.  I have added a simple George Washington and Abraham Lincoln craft and writing packet to my shop.  They make an adorable display for bulletin boards, hallways and doors.  They come with two choices of writing paper: lines and dotted lines.  Simply, print the pieces onto colored paper, have students cut, paste, and complete the writing portion.  The writing can be stapled or glued underneath the craft.
I also wanted to share with you that many of my items have received new fonts and clipart.  If you already own these, be sure to re-download for the free updates!
Here is a look at some of the items that have been updated recently:
I'll leave you with these... How cute are these melting snowmen?!

Valentine's Day Activities

I wanted to share a few crafts with you in case you are looking for Valentine's Day ideas.

Students make a girl or boy nut and then write about who he/she is "nutty" about.  

The last craft goes along with the story "Froggy's First Kiss" by Jonathan London.  Students can choose to make Frogilina or Froggy.  There are also different writing options included.  You can see them by clicking here.
I also have this reader that is great to use after reading "Froggy's First Kiss".  You can find it here: Froggy Loves emergent reader.
If you see something you like, be sure to pin it for later. :)
