FREE Catholic Books

Are you looking for some good Catholic books to read??  If so, I found an amazing list of free books.

Most of these traditional Catholic books are available in PDF format and some are audio books.  They even have some in text format or for the Kindle.  There’s also a section of cd’s.

This is an amazing list of books that could teach you something new, refresh your interest, or even change you life.  These are all traditional Catholic books that cover catechism and doctrine, saints, Catholic life, Mary, Latin, Jesus, faith, liturgy, texts, and others.

You can see the books here….

Exclusive for Followers

I’m going to be rewarding my newsletter followers with exclusive freebies just for them!! This is something that I’ve wanted to do for awhile and I’ve finally gotten ready to implement it, so I’m really excited to tell you all about how to get exclusive freebies.

The best way to keep up with The Treasured Schoolhouse is to sign-up for the newsletter.  That way, you’ll know every time I post to my blog.  You won’t be spammed or anything else.  You’ll just simply receive an excerpt of the post and you can click on the link to come back to the blog to finish reading it.  Best of all, you only receive the newsletter when I post something….and not for anything else!!

So now onto the exclusive offer for followers of the newsletter.  YAY!!  If you sign-up to receive the newsletter to The Treasured Schoolhouse, you’ll receive a password the next time I post to a freebie.  To access the freebie, you’ll be able to click on the link in the newsletter or you can come here to the blog and click on the “For Subscribers” tab.  You’ll have to input the password, which will give you access to any freebies that are on the page.  Sometimes they will be forever free and sometimes they’ll be free for a certain amount of time.  

My goal is to offer a new freebie at least once a month.  I can’t promise that though, so we’re going to say a new one will be posted as often as possible.  I don’t want to disappoint anyone or break a promise, so for now,  that’s what we’re going with!!  You never know though, so you’ll want to check back, as there won’t be a notice when a new freebie is listed.  I plan on having the freebies that I list be both Christian and educational so that I can cover both of my types of followers.

Also, the password will change often, so you’ll want to check with the newsletter to make sure you have the newest password.  You don’t want to lose access to the “For Subscribers” page to grab the freebies!!

If this sounds good to you, please just sign-up to receive the newsletter.  If you don’t already subscribe, you can enter your information on the sign-up form over in the right hand column of this blog.  If you already do subscribe, then the password will be included in the next newsletter!!




Objects in Church and for Mass

This week, we worked on what’s inside the church. Next week, we’ll go tour the church and Father will have items for mass set-up for the kids. This all leads up to the week after when we attend mass for Ash Wednesday. I do lots of prep because of many of the kids, this is the first or only time attending mass, especially for the little ones.

I start by talking about the things that they can see outside and as they walk into the church. This is a great book for discussing the different objects in church….

I then discuss several objects with them.  We do a fun activity of matching items that we’d see in church or not see in church.  Sometimes they circle the items or color the items that they see in church.  This time, we drew a line from the object to the church.

You could also simply place an “X” through items not found in church.

Next, we work on tracing the names of some of the objects in church.

Finally, we do a cut and paste activity. I had them color the church and then they were told to color the objects that they would find in the church. We should have cut them out and then glued them onto the church, but we ran out of time!!









You can find the pages that we worked on in the What’s Inside the Church Worksheet Pack in my shop.

Treasured Points

I’m excited to tell you all about a new program that I’ve implemented at The Treasured Schoolhouse Shop.  It’s a new points rewards program where you earn points for each purchase and other processes.

Here’s an example of what you’ll see now with each printable….

It will show how many points you’ll earn if you purchase the item.  As you can see, we round it up, so in this case it’s a $2.50 item and you’ll receive 3 points.  During a sale, you’ll earn points for the regular price of the materials, and not the sale price.  

Other ways that you can earn points are by opening an account with The Treasured Schoolhouse Shop.  That earns 5 points.  You can also earn 2 Treasured Points for each feedback that you leave on printables that you purchase.

When you’re ready to use your Treasured Points, you can redeem them during the checkout process.  When redeeming them, they have a value of 15 Treasured Points is equal to $1.  That means if you have 30 Treasured Points and are purchasing a $4 item, your 30 points will take $2 off the amount in the shopping cart.

The best part is that you can use your Treasured Points on your next purchase, or you can save them until you’re ready to use them.  The points never expire!

If you’d like to learn more about Treasured Points, please click here.  If there’s a question or comment that you have, please leave a comment on that page and I’ll reply right away!
