Twenty thousand or more worksheets all ready to use? What a useful resource! I have been exploring Super Teacher Worksheets for a little over a month now, finding useful pages for my children to do. All of these printable PDF files are available for one inexpensive subscription, and cover all subject areas (math, reading, writing, spelling, social studies, science, and more), for grades k-5. Basically, anything a child needs to brush up on can be found on this amazing site filled with all sorts of printables.
My children do well enough in math that they haven’t needed any supplemental help. I looked over the offerings briefly, though, and there are printables for anything children in these grades might need to do. There are even pages with a story problem for each day, or five different math problems to do every day to keep concepts fresh in children’s minds. Of course, there are plenty of pages to practice the main math functions of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
There is a large section of reading comprehension helps. These include a short story, followed by comprehension questions, vocabulary words, and a short writing prompt (such as three things that help you sleep, after reading a story about sheep helping a girl go to sleep).
The language section was one I found helpful. I printed some of the “Fix It Sentences” for Little Miss to work on. She enjoyed finding the mistakes and correcting them. I also used one of the writing prompts for her. It was the day our writing group was to meet, and she hadn’t written a story yet. She had no idea what to write about, so I printed this page and she dictated a story to me. The story got quite long—it continues most of the way down the back of the page! We’ll be going to that section of Super Teachers Worksheets again.
The phonics section has many, many printables for every letter of the alphabet, as well as resources for teaching blends and digraphs. There are also games, mini-books, and other tools for practicing word families. The section of the site we went to most was the Early Literacy tab. Miss Joy wants me to print pictures (multiple!) for her every day. She colors some, and cuts out all of them. I normally limit her to one a day, but she is nearly insatiable. We found some nice pictures of farm animals in this section, which are actually intended for writing practice. She isn’t ready for that, of course (she turns three this week), but she just ignores the lined part of the page. Little Miss loved the pages that have a printed crown for each letter of the alphabet, with pictures that start with that letter. She made a couple of them for herself.
There are also printable spelling lists, chapter book literature units, and many science topics. There is a section of social studies resources, such as studies of explorers, or maps, and some studies of various holidays. I didn’t end up looking into these sections.
The favorite section for my boys is the puzzles & brain teasers tab. I found some rebus puzzles there and printed a page, which I left lay on the table for someone to discover. Mr. Sweetie found it, picked it up, and was immediately intrigued. He wanted all the rebus pages printed for him to think about! Those are a good way to think about things in a different, out-of-the-box way.
Super Teacher Worksheets are a great resource for those times when you need quick, easy printables to brush up on a topic and don’t have the time or brain space to come up with your own. Click the image below to read about other families’ opinions about this amazing site.
