Homeschooling Worksheet Freebie

Lying Lips (1)

Homeschooling Worksheet Freebie is brought to you by education.com.  Kids will have a blast this winter as they practice matching words to pictures. For more READING FUN like this, check out Education.com.

Recently education.com reached out to me in order to reach more readers.  I browsed their website and was quite pleased with all that they had available.  This site goes from Preschool-5th grade.  It has several printable worksheets (and answers), as well as, a progress tracker.  There are also some online games, lesson planners, and a spot where you can let your creativity flow and plan your own lessons.

Plans to Choose From

Now, this is a paid site and the rates have recently gone up.  That being said, the prices are quite comparable to other websites that I have used.  You can choose to pay monthly ($6.50), annually ($60), or get lifetime access ($149).  One of the best parts is that it is all AD-FREE.

Here are some worksheet types to choose from:

  • Maze
  • Word search
  • Word search with images
  • Crossword puzzle
  • Word Scramble
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Division
  • Multiplication
  • Spelling Test
  • Matching words to images
  • Word Tracer

And we have a variety of themes to choose from. Right now our seasonal themes are popular:  snowman, mittens, winter squirrel, and Thanksgiving. Our other themes include crawly bugs, back to school, dinosaurs, outer space, and more.

Eleventh-Twelfth  Grade

 

Eleventh-Twelfth Grade is where the refining begins.  Kids are trying to figure out what they want to do.  Most kids are working and going to school.  I like to have my kids do a “trade” so to speak.  We don’t really encourage fast food, as a job.  They have done daycare work, retail, construction work, and things like that.  All these things can be counted towards their electives.

YouTube Faves

At night, when I’m taking time for myself, I watch some YouTube videos.  These are all family friendly.  I’d say they are G or PG rating (Itsjustkelli is probably the only PG rating and it is only because of her period videos but they are clearly marked and you can skip over them).  I thought I’d give you a glimpse into what I watch and share our own Youtube channel that contains snippets of Hunter and his ATLD journey.  Please consider subscribing to any or all of these youtube channels!

A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life of my family.  There are just some things a person cannot make up.  I adore my large family.

This is just a small snippet of some of the conversations that go on, in my house.

Conversation with Boo

Boo:  Mom, are you okay?

Me:  I’m fine.

Boo:  Well your face doesn’t look fine…wanna hug?


Conversation with Little Man

Little Man walking by and me noticing a HUGE bald spot on the back of his head.

Me:  Why is there a big bald spot on your head?

LM:  There was a scab and it was so itchy so I itched it off.

Me:  **Looking closely.**  Son, if this were a scab, why does it smell fruity and why is it all over your head?

LM:  I wanted a piece of gum before bed last night, it must have fallen out of my mouth.


Conversation with Big Daddy

After a couple of hours of Big Daddy “schooling” with the kids, I come downstairs.

I find papers everywhere.

One kid doing her work.

One kid helping LM does his work because Big Daddy can’t “handle” working with the little boys.

Big Daddy looking at me and saying “Catfish only got 2 pages done in his book…after 2 hours.  That’s it.  Just 2 pages.”

Me:  **thinking to myself…boy I hope you are more appreciative of what I do all day**


Bathroom Reading

I walked in the bathroom and I found the book “Grammar Composition” poised at the base of the toilet.  Light reading for the budding authors of the house LOL

Humbled Yet Thankful

Humbled Yet Thankful.  Other than the smell of fresh poop, this morning (thanks Sadie)….my morning has started off well.  I slept very well last night, and that was much needed.
After yesterdays events…I was on edge and ready to throw my hands up and say….”I’m DONE”!  B came home and allowed me to leave for a bit (a long bit LOL).  I went to a friends store and talked with them, went to Cato and got 3 church shirts and a skirt…I love that store, I got my shirts for $3.99, $4.99 and $6.99.  I’m anxious to go back to see if they mark the rest of their bohemian skirts done.  I’m finding that I really like those skirts.  They are something that I can wear around the house and not be guilty of looking like sludge LOL.  If I can just discipline myself to brush my hair, in the mornings…..that’s a work in progress.
I was relaxed when I got home.  I just needed to breathe, a bit.  I had an offer of my dear friend to HS my more difficult child….we shall see.  B isn’t all about it because she is such a difficult child and I really don’t want to put my friend through that, but the prospect of her catching up and learning, in a different environment is appealing.  I can say that because I’ve HSed her for a long while and it is very frustrating.  Public school isn’t an option.  We’ve tried that and let’s just say, demons came out to play in her and she made very very bad choices.  It was not good.  We’ve tried a private school, and it was atrocious.  She just can’t survive in that type of environment.
As for my humbling experience, this morning, my friend…my Chrissy girl came and got all my dirty laundry and took it to her house to wash.  I’m the one who likes to do for others, but when it comes to my washer being down for a month and others wanting to do for me, I’d rather pull my teeth out.  She is taking time out of her day to wash our nastiness…now that is a friend LOL. I’m humbled, and I so appreciate her willingness to help my family in this way.
Everyone is quieting doing their work.  I’m 95% caught up on grading kids’ work from yesterday.  It is peaceful, God is good.  I’m ready to finish tackling the day, as long as I’m girded with my armor, and the Lord leads my way!

What a Day

What a Day.  My morning started with a bang and extreme anger.
My dogs are kenneled, below my bedroom, in the attached garage, in the evenings.  The 2 little dogs are usually pretty quiet, but when my other dog gets wind of something going on, Sadie CONSTANTLY barks. Often, I can tune that out.
Off I go to see what (who) is the culprit.  I hear noises in the kitchen and ask what is going on.  Apparently, the girls were “screaming” because there were ants on their ceiling.  The boys were going to save the day.  When you have a rad kid, you automatically assume that she is the instigator, since, normally, she is.  Come to find out, that it was my other daughter that was beginning our morning of chaos.  Needless to say…happiness was not on my agenda, at all.  I was furious with them screaming like banshees because of an ant that can be killed with a shoe.
All that said, lots of yelling….our morning starts.  They are eager to do schoolwork because they think that that is going to make me forget our horrible beginning.  I didn’t discourage them from finishing their work, which is why they got it done so well.
Amongst this crap, I thought…well, I have fresh tomatoes, they will go bad, so I’m going to attempt to make chili (on one of the hottest day of the years).  I had some leftover beef/cheese dip and thought that would taste great.  So, I begin boiling them.  While I’m working with the tomatoes and fielding 5,000,000 questions, the phone rings.  It is the insurance adjuster saying that she wants to come earlier than usual because she “has time.”  We’ve only been waiting since April, but hey…oh well.  I said come on.
I hang up, continue working in my muck and the phone rings again.  It is my sons therapist..she is frantic because, on her way here, she sees an 18 mth old child in the middle of the road and she couldn’t find who he belongs too.  I told her that I’d be there in a moment and I set off.  She gave me the wrong name of the road, but during this time, Bug calls and says the appliance guy is here (again, my washer has been broken for a month).  I told her not to answer the door but to holler through saying I’d be there in a moment (I was 2 min. from the house).  He said that he “couldn’t wait too long.”  He put me off for the last week, wasn’t supposed to be here between 12 & 2.  It was 9:40.  I hustle back, thinking…gotta help therapist, gotta get a man to fix washer…I ran home, told him that he should’ve called first and got him to begin working on my washer.
He is working, I can’t leave to help the therapist, but the police show up, so she said that she was on her way.  She was flustered and overwhelmed, the appliance COULDN’T FIX MY WASHER! And then when I’m on the phone with the people to demand a new washer, the insurance adjuster shows up.  After much much much time here, she said that she would have our whatever done by tomorrow, maybe……..good grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I’ve hollered at my kids, dealt with a kid in the road, fussed at an appliance guy, had a moment with the adjuster, watched my son get therapized, educated all my kids and made some killer chili…………..
Prayers………….Help me, Holy Spirit!  Bring me a check for my repairs and that my new washer comes TOMORROW!
