As I’ve talked about on here before we tend to be fairly unstructured and lean more toward the unschooling, life learning side of things but we do have binders set aside for when our kids are interested in doing some workbooks or worksheets. They love this type of activity so it’s usually never a struggle. The words “Hey let’s clean up the living room and then we can do some worksheets!” is usually met with great enthusiasm, which I, having been schooled, find quite odd but it works. We have a couple of actual workbooks but I like to find more timely worksheets on line so I thought I’d share with you a list of 5 places where I get worksheets.
- Teacher Filebox (teacherfilebox.com) – This is a site by Evan-Moor a workbook/textbook publisher. They have lots of great content and you can sort it, match up with state standards and even create lesson plans. I tend not to take advantage of those features but they are still good features.
- Enchanted Learning (http://www.enchantedlearning.com) – This has tons of worksheets for all grade levels on a variety of topics. They have a bunch of classroom craft oriented ones too and lots of things pertaining to different holidays.
- Homeschool Math (http://www.homeschoolmath.net/worksheets/) – This is a recent find for me. They have a bunch of free math worksheets that are sorted by grade level.
- Kaboose (http://printables.kaboose.com/) – Lots of craft ideas, puzzles and holiday oriented printables.
- Google Images Search for “Free Printable Worksheet” – I uses google image search to generate ideas all the time. I usually search for a specific worksheet topic such as “free money learning worksheet” to get some worksheets about learning various coins and their values. Granted you have to sort through all the images visually to find what you’re looking for but it’s a great way to find free resources quickly.
I’d love to hear where you look to for your printable materials, please share your ideas in the comments.
