About the Author - Mary Fifer

Mary Fifer author of practice printable worksheets at PrintNPractice.com.Hi! I'm Mary.

Hello everyone! Here's the short story about me and my practice printable worksheets.

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.

Education, Degrees, Experience

I'be been through Rockhurst University with a BSBA in both Philosophy and Management, a double degree. Believe me, back then, the requisites for one were the electives of the other. No basketweaving 101.

  • I have held several management positions including positions at two colleges.
  • I have taught in classroom and tutorial settings and love to teach others. 
  • 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 good children and a peaceful home life!

My Husband Has Helped Hugely!

Motivation And Support

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.

Education And Certifications

My husband had taughst aviation at Randolph-Macon Academy and moved up to being Chief Flight Instructor at one of the world's largest privately owned flight schools of that time, Bolivar Aviation International School of Aeronautics.

He was then promoted to be an FAA Designated Flight Examiner.


Working Together

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 from parents and teachers exclaiming how helpful these worksheets have been for their children and students and think that you'll find the same.

Printing Worksheets For Children

The Problem.

How did we start?

Well, when our own children were practicing their Math facts and Spelling words, we remembered their good teachers who had assigned practicing by copying the facts and spellings.

Although....

We had to rescue the kids who would copy the wrong equations or spellings. 'Sound familiar?

The Solution.

We created these worksheets with the answers to be copied to fix that very problem. 

Our worksheets offer practice like my own third grade teacher had required years ago in her math class.

It's so much better when children have the correct answers to copy and practice - usually three times each on this website.

Repeated copywork is very easy and reinforces learning well.

It is rare to see worksheets that offer this kind of real practice, even today; yet it is precisely what most children need:

  • actual hands on pencil, 
  • say it out loud, 
  • repeat practice.

Say it. Write it. Repeat.

PDF Printable Worksheets

These worksheets make practice easier and better because the correct answer is on the worksheet

Children have fewer opportunities to copy a mistake from the board, a flash card, laziness, or their own imagination.

  • Finding good practice for our own children had been a bit of a trick. 
  • So many times, elementary school text books did not teach the basic concepts well or the children simply needed more practice.
  • Math facts were "taught" in scrambled order or a chart was simply handed to the children, "Here memorize this".
  • Many books do not use a good learning order or they simply do not offer much practice of the basic facts. 
  • Many times parents do not have time help with memorization.

Sometimes there's more spiraling and "method" than actual learning....

More behavior training than teaching the basic tools of academic thinking....

Oh! And then there are times that they copy the equations or spelling words wrong from the board.

Again?!

Gone are the days.

No more! These printable worksheets are your answer to the practice deficit at school and at home. And they're all free. 

Why free?

Because we think that millions of children around the world would love to have these and many families cannot afford to buy them.

We made the files.

We publish them professionally.

We began by sharing with family and friends.

Practice Worksheets For Your Children

Are you in the same boat we were in?

Do your children need a way to simply learn the facts?

If you see that it is hard for our children to learn or to practice the basics, use these worksheets to fill-in where the text books and curriculum do not offer enough practice.

Teachers use them for

  • Homework assignments.
  • Interactive school at home.
  • Practice or busywork.
  • Easy files to leave for substitute teachers.
  • Specific topics for tutors and paras to help in class.

Parents use them for

  • Practice after school.
  • Homeschool practice.
  • Summer school practice.

To make a long story short, we have created this website to share thousands of professional worksheets.

You can search our site for practice printable worksheets or buy our worksheet bundles directly.

  • Your students need quick and easy practice worksheets because who has the extra time to practice facts after school, especially after spending six to eight hours at school.
  • When your kids have been in school all day, homework itself is enough work for the evening. You can't really add an extra burden because every one is tired after a long day.

Not only have our own family and friends used them, hundreds of thousands of visitors have done the same. 

Relief for Teachers and Parents

We care about these printable worksheets because we care about those who use them. Dearly.

  • Teachers now have an easy way to assign the practice necessary to learn the basics.
  • Parents now have the tools to back up what the books are teaching, or to supplement where the text books skip.
  • Students now have an easy way to practice that adds little time or effort to homework time.

Easy For You, Easy For Children

On top of being excellent at covering the basics, our worksheets also require low teacher/parent involvement.

What?

Teach the material your way or according to your method.

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.

Interactive Printable Worksheets

In 2014 we were glad to be able to produce these practice worksheets as interactive files. Your students or children can copy these worksheets to their own computer files.

  • Children can then practice typing while using the keyboard instead of printing the worksheets and filling them in by hand. 
  • Teachers can assign them electronically.
  • These same worksheets can also be printed, either way works. 
  • You can also type your own notes on their papers - save the files for next time.
  • You can save both paper and ink.
  • You can store students' work in electronic files.

Print or File Interactive Worksheets

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.

See the menu at the top of this page to go to the subjects you teach.

Here's the long explanation about our printable interactive worksheets.

Our bundles are now all interactive. Order them in bundles here.
