Free Math Workbooks!

Amazon has free Math Workbooks for ages 5-10. These are a great way to keep kids learning. Colorful and a variety of topics. Here’s the workbook for 5-6 You will see links to other books on this page.

Many of these pages you will want to write on. I personally would do this in the following way:

1) a Kindle reader on my laptop

2) My Window laptop’s “Snip and Sketch” app. Once the page I want to cut is open, you push the Windows key + shift+ s. Then you drag to highlight what you want to copy. It could be one problem or the whole page. Screen shots work too!

3) Open and paste (Ctrl + V) the picture and then write on! Save it as a PDF to show mom. See my video on using Bitpaper. Super easy to learn. Hint: Do not use the erase function…it will erase the worksheet too. Use “z” or the undo button to undo the last mark instead. This can also be done in word.

NOTE: In just a few days, bitpaper will become a paid platform, but the free student account can create one free paper per month, with many tabs (over 30) and that can be erased/reset.

One advantage of Bitpaper is that you could have a grandparent or friend watching their work and commenting from across the country. If they are bored and you have to work from home…it’s win/win!

It’s not to complicated for seniors! Have them call on a phone and then at the same time, get on their e-mail and click the link you send them that opens up a webpage. They might need to login, but I don’t think so. They can just watch if that’s all they know how to do, or they can write on the paper too with a bit of tech skill.

oliTo my American grammar police friends: I learned today that “practise” is the British English word used as a verb, while they use “practice” as a noun. Also, “Maths” is appropriate in England as well. There may be other differences in the book as well, but for the most part, math is math (or maybe “maths” is “maths”!)
