Free Multiplication Worksheet: 6, 7, 8 times table

After the long summer break, children can easily forget the skills they had been mastering before summer. So we will start the new school year with a gentle introduction, reviewing the things we were doing before the holidays! For The Girl this means multiplication: 6, 7, and 8 times tables to be precise! This short review sheet also includes a word problem and some area questions… all which depend on these multiplication skills.

Preschool Line and Shape Tracing Practise: Free Worksheet...

To help a child progress to letter formation, allowing the child opportunities to strengthen hand muscles and improve fine motor neurone skills are important. These can be achieved through playing with play dough, cutting, drawing and colouring in. However, I have made some worksheets to help improve pencil control. This one also reviews shape recognition: reviewing the square and circle. You could also use them for cutting practise. line shape tracing practise Share this:PrintFacebookTwitterEmailLike this:Like...

Animals and the Natural World Study, for multiple ages...

As we are going to be visiting the zoo this week, I thought it a good idea to plan an animal project. As we currently have an 8 year old, a 6 year old and a preschooler I want to teach them all something which will be appropriate for their ages. The Girl has already learnt about mammals, reptiles, amphibians etc. But we did make a poster, and her role was to write a description of what a mammal is, what a reptile is, etc. The Jedi Boy (the 6 year old), with some help from The Knight Boy, cut out, and glued different animals on the poster in their correct categories. We have now taken the study onto look at habitats and how animals are adapted to their different habitats. The Girl is learning about Biomes, and the food cycle, below is a free worksheet to fill in the blanks. This is to familiarise the child with words like: habitat, biome, organism, adaptation. the natural world The boys a more fundamental look at a habitat is an animals home, and why would a polar bear live in the Arctic and not a desert for example. For this we have printed off a world map, and The Girl has marked the different biome region on it, the children will then look at the map and decide where different animals live. The boys will glue the pictures of the animals and show where they are from (with some help.) Interestingly, before we have stated this The Knight Boy had been walking about the house with a map of the world asking questions like “where are the monkeys from?, where do tigers live?” It’s lovely when they are showing a natural interest in the topic being taught! Another fantastic resource is the children’s natural history documentaries playing on BBC iplayer, Deadly 60 is a big hit in our house: Share this:PrintFacebookTwitterEmailLike this:Like...

Grammar Review Test 1: Simple Parts of Speech

It is important to me that the children have a better foundation in grammar than I had in my life. I find it shocking that I am learning things about the English Language teaching my 5 year old phonics, that I never knew before now. So to enforce what The Girl has been learning I have made up a little test, which can couple as her own information sheet, reviewing the simple parts of speech. I have covered: Nouns, Verbs, Proper Nouns, Common Nouns, Adjectives, and Adverbs. The test is not too long, I want her to understand their uses, but I also give her a lot of creative writing practise, where I encourage her to use adjectives, adverbs etc appropriatly. I have been using Language Lessons for the Elementary Child to teach grammar with her. grammar review test 1 Share this:PrintFacebookTwitterEmailLike this:Like...
