Super Teacher Worksheets #Printables {Review}

Several years ago, I was introduced to Super Teacher Worksheets and I am delighted to again come to tell you just how helpful this Individual Membership website has been to my teaching this year. In 2015, you may have read my beginning opinions of this printables and worksheets website. In the depths of 2017, a good two years later I still love using this resource and it is one of my preferences. Once again, for the purposes of this review, I was blessed to receive a one-year individual membership added to my existing account. Generally,  I have found myself looking for extra practice and using many pages as supplemental work. For example, my toddler preschool son is just now starting to learn the basics of penmanship. We have workbooks, but sometimes there is a letter he needs just that much more practice with. I’m thrilled that I can go in and. . .

Super Teacher Worksheets Review

Over the last several years I have spent a lot of time following blogs and saving printables that I have found here and there, but often there are so many things I find that are an individual charge and not necessarily a great worksheet once I get down to it. Therefore, when I heard about a website where you can get a lot of things for free, but pay one fee for access to the whole library of resources I was wary but intrigued. Members of the TOS Review Crew have been blessed to receive one-year access to Super Teacher Worksheets and given an Individual Membership. I’m not usually one to state prices in my reviews, but a year is only $19.95/yr and that is way less compared to any other site when you add up all the possibilities!  This is a website filled with printable resources in these categories: Math Reading &. . .

Wrapping Up the End of the Homeschool Year (2013-2014 Edition)

Can you believe it is already that time of year, to wrap up your school studies? If you are using a standard school year it is that time. Although if you use a calendar year, then it’s the time to pep up as you’re almost halfway there! Or if you school year-round you might be changing topics, taking a hiatus, or re-energizing to keep on trekking. Finally, there is another new-to-me option that your family might use in (the name slips my mind at the moment) schedule of 6-9 weeks on, break, on, break, and so on! Generally for us I think we use a school year start, and then naturally fall a bit into a (whatever that last one is called) schedule. However we let life get in the way as well as speed up and slow down as the material and skills lead us. We started the year with. . .
