Homeschool Pumpkin Printables

This month I joined in with a few bloggers to put together printables for pumpkins. Pumpkins are a favorite part of fall for me. I love decorating with them, large, small, tiny, they are so fun. Of course, I love baking with them too.

Here are a few printables I put together. My goal was to create some items for the older children. I hope I accomplished this. Please visit the other bloggers who also made printables.



The Pumpkin Poem by John Greenleaf WhittierThis is The Pumpkin, a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier. It is a short but sweet study on the poem.

The Discontented PumpkinOkay, this is most likely for the younger crowd. The story of the Discontented Pumpkin has a lesson to be learned. It includes a spot for the student to illustrate the story and to tell its meaning.

You can also add scripture on being content. (kjv)

  • Proverbs 17:22 - A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
  • Proverbs 14:30 - A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
  • 1Timothy 6:6-7 - 6. But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
  • Philippians 4:11-13 - 11. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

  • A narration outline

  • I included a couple matching notebooking pages in case more room was needed for the copywork.

Mother's Day notebooking pages: A cute set of Mother's Day notebooking pages that can also be a keepsake.

I found them! This set of Mother's Day Notebooking pages I made about 5 years ago. The files are a little bit large, I didn't know how to scale down graphics back then. 🙂 I don't have the original file to edit them.

So, they might take a while to load and they will have my old web address. But, they are still great to use for Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day,

I made this set of Father's Day Notebooking pages five years ago when I first started Albright News. Wow, how time flies. I couldn't find the original text to edit it, so it will still show my old web address.

Hopefully, you will be able to use them.

When I created them, it was to be more of a keepsake of memories and thoughts on dads than just notebooking page.

September 11. 2001 Notebooking Pages. Okay, I have a lot of notebooking pages for you all this week. The topic is September 11, 2001. We all remember that day!!

September 11th, We Remember!

Okay, I have a lot of notebooking pages for you all this week. The topic is September 11, 2001. We all remember that day!!

Yip, this is one of those days where you will always remember what you were doing when it happened, much like when the space shuttle, The Challenger, exploded.

When the twin towers were hit, I was home with my littles at the time. It happened to be during the time when we had a trial run with the local cable company. We had just moved from California to Georgia. My mother-in-law was visiting us because Donnie was just born 5 months earlier.

When I turned on the T.V. and saw the towers on fire, it was unbelievable. Just watching it unfold before our eyes was scary, I couldn't even begin to imagine what those living through it might be feeling. All I could do was pray.

As the ten year anniversary of that day is only weeks away, I made up some notebooking pages to use with remembering that day.
