Free Printable Multiplication Practice Book

FREE Multiplication Practice Pack

Hello again all! I hope you're all staying healthy and keeping safe. No matter what your current situation, I hope these freebies are helping you just a bit too!

Today I'm sharing a freebie for the older elementary kids, a free printable multiplication book. It has great visuals to help your kids multiply, and has tons and tons of practice too!

I'm pretty sure most of us remember having to memorize multiplication tables in school. I certainly remember standing in front of my third-grade teacher, Mrs. Vamos, while she called each of us up to (quietly) tell her a new times table every week. She would give us a sticker afterward if we improved (even if we struggled) I still remember those darned numbers to this day😂

All that being said, practice is important! It just goes to show how much memorizing things like addition and times tables can help kids later on. Even if it doesn't make perfect (as my very wise third-grade teacher knew!), it certainly can help kids as they move along into older grades. So as my middle daughter is beginning to learn times tables in her own math lessons, I thought this freebie might help some of you as well!

On each page, I've included some 'bits of help' so kids can see visually how to times tables are done. I've included pages for each individual table from 1-12, and also some 'mixed practice' pages for once kids have gotten through studying all the tables.

The mixed review pages include blank spaces for kids to make their own counters.
You could slip it into a page protector or dry erase sheet to make it reusable too! You could also make them into a book or laminate them for extra practice.

If you use them, let me know! I always love to see my resources being used by other families!

Stay healthy all <3 p="">

Free Rock Cycle My Pet Rock Journal And Learning Pack!

I'm happy to say that I've got another awesome freebie for you today! This free "My Pet Rock" Journal is a great way to take advantage of the nice Spring weather without having to travel far. Although we're still covered in snow here, I've enjoyed seeing posts everywhere about kids getting out in backyards and still enjoying the fresh air and soaking up some vitamin D.

I am planning to release a few freebies in the coming weeks in hopes that it helps you and your kids beat boredom and learn together. I've already released my Star Wars and Princess Writing Packs, and you can check out my Freebies Page too for more fun! I've got some math games coming up, along with sight words resources and phonics games too that will all be free, so stay tuned!

I made this freebie especially with my niece in mind, who has been collecting a ton of rocks lately, bringing them home and painting them. It's something my youngest daughter also enjoys doing in warmer weather and I'm sure many of your kids do too.

So I figured I'd make it into a fun activity - with a little learning snuck in there too! Science credit, done! Here is everything that comes in the pack:

  • Play Ideas & Links to videos and crafts
  • Different Cover Pages In Black & White And Color
  • Types Of Rocks Poster
  • Rock Cycle Poster
  • Rock Cycle Information Pages
  • My Observations Covers In Black & White And Color
  • Journal Pages For Younger Kids/Beginner Writers
  • Journal Pages For Older Kids/Advanced Writers
  • My Rock Dictionary Pages Including Covers In Black & White And Color

All in all, you get a fun journal for your child to remember their favorite rocks, learn about types of rocks, and the rock cycle. All while making it into a fun nature walk/outdoor activity you can do in your backyard or neighborhood.

There are two types of journal pages, with one for beginner or less 'enthusiastic writers', and one for more advanced writers. Use the pages you think your child would enjoy most - remember, they'll still be learning!

The simpler page includes primary writing lines with only 3 things to write, as well as a bigger space for kids to draw a picture of their rocks or paste a photo. The other page has a few different things to write, including the features of the rock (what makes it a sedimentary/igneous/metamorphic rock) and how they found it.

I made the rock dictionary pages with some vocabulary and writing practice in mind. Whenever your child is reading about rocks, they can either record words they didn't know before or interesting facts they find.

I've also included both color and black and white versions of all the pages, depending on your printing preference! It's also a lot of fun for kids to color in the black and white pages, especially younger children.

You can download this freebie below!

Free Princess Play And Write Printable Set For Learning And Play

Hello everyone!
I'm really hoping you're all doing well and keeping calm during this crazy time ❤
I know for us it's been a bit of a wild ride, but we're getting through it day by day.

I love seeing how many teachers are putting out freebies and home education packs for kids suddenly forced into learning at home. As a homeschool mom of ten years, I know the first few YEARS of homeschooling with planning are tough, so I can't imagine having to be thrust into it so suddenly.

I have been wanting to put out some freebies I've been working on too to try and help out as best as I can, and I hope you enjoy what I have planned. Today, it's a fun writing freebie for any kids who are into princesses.

Don't forget to check out my Star Wars freebie too! Get it Here!

This princess pack has everything you'll need for your little writers in elementary, and is a lot of fun! I've included 3 levels of writing pages, along with some fun color-in story pictures that can be glued onto the writing pages.

But that's not all! I've also included a fun playset to go with the writing pages that can help keep your kiddo busy for a while and inspire play! It can be set up in a folder as I've set it up. Just print it out, laminate it or cover pieces with clear packing tape, and use some velcro dots or tape to hold the pieces in the folder. You could also use a bag or envelope taped inside to hold pieces.

A great way to incorporate this set into your day would be to have a 'fairy tale' day. You could either read princess stories, watch princess movies, or find some fun princess sing-along videos online. 

My six-year-old's finished story. The cool man is the frog 😂

I've also included a whole sheet of play and learning ideas to go along with this pack. It's full of simple ideas you can do at home with little supplies.

I really hope you enjoy this pack as much as we are! Let me know if you love it on social media (see my pages to the side) I'd love to hear about it. You can also send me any suggestions you may have for future freebies!

Please be sure to share this page (not the download link) if you're sharing this freebie!

Free Star Wars Writing Set For Beginner to Intermediate Writers

My oldest daughter is a huge Star Wars fan. She started getting really into the series just a few months ago when we had a family movie-a-thon before the newest chapter, Rise of Skywalker, came out. We watched all 8 previous movies over the course of a week and then hit the theater the weekend after seeing the new movie. Since then she has been reading and watching every Star Wars book and show she can get her hands on.

Seeing as how this particular kiddo is also a bit of a reluctant writer when it comes to writing in our homeschool, I decided to encourage her creativity a bit by making her this set. I also made it for her younger sister, who, although she's not a huge Star Wars fan, wants to do everything her big sister is doing.

And I've decided to share this set with all of you! Your child can make up their own Star Wars story using the movie characters, settings, and more.

There are a few levels of writing lines in this set, including primary sized lines and smaller lines for older kids. There are also different levels of story elements. The first having simpler story elements to choose from, including a character, setting, and action. This is a great choice for beginning writers who would only want to write one or two sentences (ex: "Luke Skywalker walked around Tatooine. He saw the suns.") Then, there are other elements added on in other pages such as times.

I've included general times of day, as well as some clocks with time to the hour - a great way to practice telling time too!

I've also included an extra writing page for older kids who would like to write more, as well as an illustration page for kids to make their own picture(s) on to include with their story.

There is even a background page if you'd like to go writing-free and just let your kids' creativity fly. You can cut out the characters and glue them onto sticks to make them into little puppets.

I really hope you and your kids enjoy this set!


And coming soon...a Frozen writing set for free too!
