Hello everyone! Here's the story about our practice printable worksheets.
I'm Mary Fifer. I'm the happy wife of one wonderful husband, the mother of our eight busy children, and the author of this website. We are glad to live in Kansas in the Mid-Western United States, a most beautiful part of the world, especially for its sunsets.
I'be been through a college education with a BSBA in both Philosophy and Management, and have held several management positions including positions at two colleges. I also earned my private pilot license and logged 80 hours. Oh! The joy of flying!
I left all this to be a full time mother. Oh! The joy of children and home life!
Of course we're in this together. My husband had taught aviation in a private academy and moved up to being Chief Flight Instructor at one of the world's largest privately owned flight schools of that time. He was then promoted to be an FAA Designated Flight Examiner. I love to share that he uses our worksheets to help teach our children and has been a real mover for creating new pages for this site.
My husband and I have both been teachers and we've been parents for many years. We know that both children in the classroom and also those studying at home need quick ways to cover the basics whether they're practicing or catching up.
We also have many emails of folks exclaiming how helpful these worksheets have been for their children and students and think that you'll find the same.
How did we start?
Well, when our own children were practicing their Math facts and Spelling words, we thought of creating worksheets that had the right answers to be copied. We had to rescue the ones who would copy the wrong equations or spellings.
It's so much better when children have the right answers to copy the first time and then for practice - usually three times each on this website.
It is rare to see worksheets that offer this kind of real practice, yet it is precisely what many children need. These worksheets offer practice like what my own third grade teacher had required years ago in her Math class; yet these worksheets make practice better because the correct version is on the worksheet rather than the child having opportunities to copy a mistake from the board, a flash card, or their own imagination. Sound familiar?
Sometimes there's more spiraling and method than actual learning....
More behavior training than teaching the basic tools of academic thinking....
No more! These printable worksheets are your answer to the practice deficit at school and at home. And they're all free.
Why? Because we think that millions of children around the world would love to have these and many families cannot afford to buy them.
We do sell them in bundles so you can work offline, yet the site is organized by subject and topic so that the worksheets are easy to find online. Enjoy!
Are you in the same boat we were in?
Do your children need a way to just learn the facts?
Seeing how hard it was to find a way for children to practice the basics for our children, we began to make more worksheets to fill-in where various text books and curriculum did not offer enough practice. We've used them for
To make a long story short, we have created this website with thousands of professional worksheets. You can now search our site for practice printable worksheets or buy our worksheet bundles directly.
Gone are the days.
Now we have worksheets that have the equations and the words handy to copy. Not only have our own family and friends used them, hundreds of thousands of visitors have done the same.
Now it's true that our grandchildren may be the ones who benefit most since our youngest is getting older every day; but perhaps you get the idea.
We care about these printable worksheets because we care about those who use them. Dearly.
On top of being excellent at covering the basics, our worksheets also require low teacher/parent involvement.
Teach the material your way. Then, once your children are familiar with the equations, spellings, meanings, and diagrams, the main thing you have to say is, "Say this as you write it."
There aren't many other directions that you need to give. Practice first and let the children finish on their own, then simply check that they copied the work well.
We're glad to be able to produce these practice worksheets; and, newly, we made them interactive. Our newest pages have worksheets that your students or children can copy to their own computer files.
What are interactive worksheets?
Well, they're printable worksheets that your students can also use on the computer instead of paper (the same files can be printed).
Yea! The biggest bug-a-boo with worksheets is the cost and hassle of printing them.
The paper and ink expenses are not anywhere near the price of some workbooks plus shipping and handling, so these remain a thrifty reusable resource.
It is very handy to simply create a copied file for each student in which they can fill out the worksheets and file them rather than printing them. It's also handy to be able to print extras for extra practice.
Here's the long explanation about our printable interactive worksheets.
