D’Nealian Handwriting Worksheets

Happy New Year everyone! I thought I’d kick off the new year with a highly requested freebie download for you all! After publishing my K4 Handwriting Worksheets (manuscript) and my Cursive Handwriting Worksheets, I’ve had several requests for D’Nealian Handwriting worksheets, so here they are!     As usual, you can print on copy paper and have students write with pencil on the sheets, or you can also print on copy paper, then laminate or stick inside a page protector and allow them to use them with Expo Dry-Erase markers! That way they’re re-usable and you can practice your sheets as many times as needed! –> Download the D’Nealian Handwriting Sheets <–   The line spacing for these sheets should be appropriate for kindergarten, first , or second graders who need more practice with D’Nealian handwriting skills. Each letter includes capital and lowercase letter practice. The first row of letters are traceable to help students properly … [Read more...]

3rd Grade Sight Word Sentences–Manuscript

Are you looking for a fun way to have your 3rd grade students practice their sight words? Look no further! I’ve had a ton of requests for a manuscript version of my 3rd grade sight word sentences, so today I’m sharing the 3rd grade sight word manuscript sentence printables with you. (I have 3rd Grade Cursive Sight Word Sentences here.) Each worksheet has the sight word along with a funny sentence. Students will practice tracing the word, reading the word several times, then writing it on their own. They will also fill in a sentence using the word as well as practice reading the sentence. Students will also cut out the letters then glue them on the sheet to spell the word correctly to complete a sentence. This not only makes the activity more hands-on, but it also helps with spelling practice. I have also added letter tracing to this activity to help with handwriting practice. Finally they will make up their own sentence using their newly learned sight word! The repetition … [Read more...]

Give the Gift of Literacy Giveaway

Hi everyone! I’m so excited for today’s post! Mainly because I’m partnering with one of my favorite ministries, Samaritan’s purse. And also because I have a fun FREEBIE for you today AND a giveaway! The bloggers of iHomeschool Network have come together to help support the Samaritan’s Purse Literacy Campaign. We’re sharing our favorite books, along with some fun family activities, as well as giveaways! The Jesse Tree The past couple years we’ve been putting up a Jesse Tree in our home to help remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. The Jesse Tree gets it’s name from Isaiah 11:1-2 “A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest upon Him.” The main Branch is a Biblical sign of the expected coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ and the faithfulness of God. The other branches of the tree represent a piece of the stories that make up the whole story of God’s relationship with His people. As we read … [Read more...]
