Worksheets Wednesday , our new math primer page


I was reminded, by my children, last Wednesday that Wednesday is supposed to be Worksheets Wednesday

Apparently I was not the only one in the house who appreciated having a more toned down hump day during our school week.

It is a day for review, crosswords, puzzles, word games, and paper crafts.

We use workbooks we pick up from Books A Million, Wal Mart, or the Dollar Tree, or worksheets I print from some of our favorite sites:

Enchanted Learning

Worksheet Works


Soft Schools

Handwriting Worksheets

Some I create with Open Office.  We currently use Math-U-See, so I created a really simple primer worksheet page for Taderbug. 

I can write a number down and she fills in the correct number of squares, or I can give her a variety of items and have her count them, then color in a matching number of squares.

To help with your WW, I’d like to share our new primer page!

It also fits well with Ten Frame Cards, a concept that my friend Honey blogged about here, on at the Sunflower Schoolhouse.

For custom penmanship, story prompting, and spelling worksheets I fire up my StartWrite software and make them pages.  I love that I can easily type in our memory verse, add an image, print it in Cursive for Doodlebug and without retyping it switch it to Manuscript for Taderbug and reprint.

What are your favorite sites to find worksheets and other printables?

    What a great idea! I’ll have to keep it in mind for friends w/younger ones. Mine is in 7th now. This year it’s about plowing forward, one day at a time. I do have Startwrite. I love it. It was a great way to incorporate handwriting pages when he was younger.
    BTW, I do love the look. I love all the colors. Very eye appealing.

    Thanks for fanning the page and for the compliments 🙂  

    Our worksheets day started because I needed a day where they could just do work more independantly. Kind of a planned ‘mommy time out’ day !

      I like the idea of a planned mommy day! That could maybe give me more time with the twins. It could also create paper for our portfolio.

    Good Morning,
    I saw your link about Worksheet Wednesday on Twitter and was intrigued to come and read.
    I love this idea! I need to see how we can incorporate this…
    When I opened your primer page, I thought that it looked very similar to some of the ten frame cards in my post… and then I noticed in the very next sentence that you mentioned me.
    Thanks for the mention.
    The StartWrite software sounds intriguing. I will have to look into that.
    A couple of my favorite websites for worksheets are

    Thanks for the links!  I’ll have to check them out 🙂


    The ten frame math is very similar to the way MUS is teaching Taderbug in her primer workbook.  I’ve also seen it in some of her store bought workbooks!

    I love the idea of a worksheet day… Wednesdays would be good as that is our homeschool co-op day and our mornings usually seem to rushed to do traditional school. If I printed simple review/ reinforcement worksheets that would make it a lot easier.. Thanks for the idea.
