Welcome to the once a month blogger! The purpose of this blog is really to share ideas/thoughts/projects and maybe even a story or two!

I became a stay at home mom after having my second child. As a new stay at home mom I wanted a way to document the things I'm working on as well as share with anyone who might care to listen. I have gotten so many great ideas from others that I want to pay it forward in any way I can.

As for the name, "The Once a Month Blogger," Well, I have to be honest, that is extremely ambitious for me! I've had a personal blog site for about 6-7 years and have probably written on it less than a dozen times. My posts aren't likely to be long. I like to try to keep things as brief as possible!

As a warning, if you're looking for comic relief or inspiring literary genius...you won't find it here. But

I promise I will do my best to post once a month or more, even if only to briefly update you on a current project. Hopefully you can find something you'll like!

Animal Alphabet Traceable Letters

**NOTE!!! I have consolidated the tracing letters to one document, so now you can download it once and get them all!

My friend and I have decided to do our own preschool for our children (some call it a "Joy School", I believe).  In preparation for that, I decided to make some printable tracing letters.  I wanted to share them.  They're not perfect, but will work for our purposes.  I spent a lot of time drawing the animals and putting the pages together, so they are only for personal use.  Thanks!!

*Update-  So, I came up with a genius idea.  I'm probably the last one to think of this, but I thought I'd share in case it'll help anyone else.  I wanted the kids to be able to use each sheet multiple times, but I didn't want to have to get each one laminated because, you know, that'd be expensive, and I'm all about being cheap.  Enter dollar store sheet protectors!  They aren't great quality, but you get 16, I think, so you can do front and back.  Put the papers in, put a little tape at the top and use dry erase markers.  Then you can just wipe them down with a wet cloth and the kids can go at it again!
If you like what you see, please sign up for email alerts!  I'll be posting more preschool ideas soon and you won't want to miss it!

  4. I agree with Nancy - they're a great resource, but it would be really convenient if they could be downloaded as a single file. Thank you!

  7. I love these, what I did was laminate each page so that I can wipe the page clean and have her re-use them.
