This whole week has been nothing but planning our school year. I’m starting preschool with my 3 year old this year so I’ve got lots of extra work putting together new curriculum and resources for her as well as the normal stuff for my boys. Instead of a History of Technology post (which has been my normal Friday routine for the last month) I decided that this would be a good week to outline a few of my other posts and some free resources to help you plan your school year.

Along with these helpful posts I also have a series of workbooks called History of Technology. You can get these for free for a limited time. (Each link opens the post to get each workbook.)
Below are some great websites that I use on a regular basis (when I can’t come up with something on my own) that have some great free and paid resources!
K5learning.com – Lots of free worksheets for Kindergarten to 5th grade. (They also have a paid version.)
K12reader.com – Free worksheet and resources for Kindergarten to 12th grade.
Softschools.com – Similar to K12reader.com
theteacherscorner.net – Free resources and worksheets. Also has a Word Search Generator that I love to use. (You can purchase a subscription as well starting at 4.95/ month)
teacherspayteachers.com and teachersnotebook.com– Both of these sites are teachers for teacher resources. They have a lot of freebies as well as paid digital resources. Update: 8/2/2018 This is a total bummer, but I just found out that Teachers Notebook will be shutting down their site on Sept. 14th. So if you want to find some great free and paid resources from teachersnotebook.com I’d hop over there quick!!
