Worksheets Wednesday , our new math primer page

CIMG0583

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

AplusMath

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?

WFMW "Worksheet Wednesdays"

This year we are trying out a modified workbox setup for school. I say modified because I have not yet purchased the wonderful ebook that actually explains how to do this properly (something I will be doing soon because while I love this idea I am working myself to death at the moment… not entirely the workboxes fault).
Today, day three of school, my girls came downstairs to find their workboxes still stacked up from yesterday. The littlest one almost cried at the thought of NO KINDERGARTEN today. Good thing for her I had decided to make today “Worksheet Wednesday”. We have some cutting practice, some writing, some math, and of course reading (with a mini book report worksheet).
Here’s one of the worksheets I created for DoodleBug, my second grader, as a fractions refresher:

Fractions 1/2
To help motivate her with her math drills I made her some skip counting drill sheets and SCORE CARDS!

Skip Counting 2s Drill Sheet
I have some great freebies I have collected from The Simple Homeschool… LOVE HER STUFF!
Then I might have our Principal Daddy help research Prince Henry the Navigator. He’s much better at that sort of thing than I am. My job was to find really cool pages to use to make our Explorer’s Notebook with!
Worksheet Wednesdays are what Works For Me!
