We prefer a literature approach to home school and use real or living books for history and English but a couple of my girls really like worksheets. I’d been contemplating what to do for my 16 year old; our history program has study questions but the format is very difficult to use. How do I get her to answer questions so that I have something to grade? Supergirl often needs extra practice with little skills. She loves worksheets and our math programs do not provide enough for her. I needed something easy to use that would work for Tailorbear and at the same time fill gaps and offer practice for Supergirl. The crew provided a solution! With the Individual Membership from Super Teacher Worksheets.
Tim Weibel, who taught 3rd and 4th grades for over 10 years, founded Super Teacher Worksheets in 2007. This website offers activities, games, and printable worksheets for teachers and homeschoolers. There are over 10,000 PDFs covering Math, Reading & Writing, Phonics, Grammar, Social Studies, Science, and Spelling.
In addition to traditional worksheets, you’ll find spelling lists, dice games, math mystery pictures, flash cards, memory card games, and more. The content is geared primarily for students in Kindergarten to 5th or 6th grade though I’ve been making use of the Quiz Generator to use with Tailorbear. I’ve been using the Matching, Multiple Choice, and Fill-in-Blank generators to take those study questions and vocabulary from her history program to create little tests. I take the very difficult to use study guide and take the information and input it into the generator and bam, I have a quiz she can take.
You can use Super Teacher Worksheets for free but there are limits. The benefits of having the Individual Membership include unlimited access to all of the files. Currently there are over 10,000 files! Without a membership, a teacher or parent can only access a fraction of the available materials. I noticed that only two of the 13 PDFs for Integers are FREE. To access all of them I needed to log in to my Individual Membership.
One of the biggest advantages of the Membership is being able to save the worksheets in a File Cabinet. I can work ahead creating multiple worksheets and save each of them in the file cabinet. I can then print them out as needed or even use them again and I don’t have to worry about printing them and losing the printed pages or having to save them to my computer. In addition to saving the worksheets I create using the Generator tools, I can click the file button and save all my favorites so that I can find them quickly and easily. This saves me time when I am planning my lessons. I can take an afternoon, browse through the topics I need and save them to the file cabinet to print when I need them.
Supergirl loves worksheets. She has enjoyed using worksheets to supplement her regular math program. I was thrilled to find worksheets that covered place value and ordinal numbers in addition to addition and subtraction. I also used the Worksheet Generator to create a set of Matching Worksheets to practice matching upper and lower case letters. Each time I visit the site I find more and more things I can use to help.
Super Teacher Worksheets' Individual Membership has provided the solution I need to find supplemental worksheets for re-teaching and extra practicing of a variety of concepts for Supergirl. With the different Quiz Generator tools, I have a solution to the not well laid out study guide problem I had with Tailorbear’s history program. Do check out the website. Give it a try. There is much that is free so that you can get an idea of how it works. You can try it out before purchasing the Individual Membership.
