Although my dear friend Bonnie Rose has a wonderful series on creating your own printables for her subscribers (you can subscribe to WriteBonnieRose here) I still haven’t been able to tackle the process. Soon. Someday.
But, I am still a huge fan of free printables. You can find them all over the web these days, in MANY forms and fashions.
Here are some of my favorites—all free—that I’ve found that you can use with your children!
Reading, Writing and Arithmetic:
- Heidi from One Creative Mommy has some darling early elementary math games (and phonograms, too!) to use with your kiddo. All she asks is that you leave a comment letting her know how they worked for your family!
- Another neat printable from Heidi from One Creative Mommy –her amazing multiplication racetrack game. Click on her link to see it!
- Bonnie Rose (whom I mentioned above) has an awesome series about life in the 10/40 Window. Her “Exploring With Jake” has a lovely printable (with lots of stories) that you’ll want to check out: “How To Be a Superhero in 12 Easy Steps and Other Stories from Exploring With Jake–Vol. 1“
- Mama Miss has the most GORGEOUS alphabet cards for your preschooler, kindergartner or first grader. She also discusses four different ways you can use them!
- Jade Harrington of Free Pretty Printables also has a lovely set of alphabet cards…these have the letter and an illustration on each.
- Money Saving Mom has some gorgeous alphabet tracing pages.
- Download Mr Printable’s charming United States map. You can use it as a jigsaw puzzle, add flags with different meanings (“Grandma lives here”) and have a fabulous time learning about the states of our country and how they fit together!
- Carrie from Homeschool Giveaways (I definitely recommend you subscribe….she has wonderful freebies for her subscribers!) has a wonderful Printable Plant Journal. We are about halfway through gardening season, but you could still do a catch-up with your kids, or save it for next year.
- Wonderful Lisa Moorefield has a fabulous printable for you to print (on cardstock, maybe?) and cut apart to use with your kiddos during car trips. Games, word searches, coloring cards, license plate games….your kids can practice all kinds of fun skills while you’re driving!
- Renee Swope of Proverbs 31 Ministries has a wonderful study on the names of God and where they’re found in the Bible.
- Sarah at My Joy-Filled Life has a beautiful printable for John 15:5. It’s so beautiful you’ll probably want to frame it!
- Bible Based Homeschooling has a Scripture study you can combine with your science lesson: Bible Based Gardening!
