The Toymaker has created a nice craft for all to do this time of year – Snowy, the snowman and Ginger, the gingerbread boy. Our kids were most impressed with the optical illusion created by the spinnerets. There are two FREE PDF’s for you to print out.

Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning :)

We wish you a very, very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Create your own FREE Math worksheets!

I don’t know about your children but sometimes our kids just don’t click with a math concept right away and need some extra practice at really “getting” it. Math-Aids.com is a website where you can create FREE worksheets on specific math topics. Not only that but each time you click on what you want, you receive a different set of questions. I tried this out for the first time this evening as Daniel has been struggling with rounding to the nearest hundred. I created 5 different worksheets for him, saved them all to PDF so that I have them for future use with the other children.

I should warn you that there are a LOT of ads on this site but sometimes you have to put up with ads to get what you need to help you in educating your children. Many so called “education” websites do not impress me but this one is very different. I can see us using this a LOT in the future. Hannah is working on time right now and so I just clicked on that section. Wow! I think I have me a new “toy” to play with!

FREE Sleeping Bear Press Teacher Guides

Recently I asked an author if she knew of any other authors who provided FREE activity pages to go with their books and she told me about Sleeping Bear Press so yesterday I looked them up. Wow! There are some truly great resources here. Yes, you do have to purchase the books if your library does not have them but due to the nature of most of their books the kids will learn a lot from each one and the books will grace your library for many years and be great reference tools.

Let’s support the authors and publishers that go the extra mile to provide additional resources to aid in the reading of their books.

As I research and find more I will let you know!
