Free printables by grade!
The summer’s here! For most, summers mean long, lazy days, out by the pool. For us though, summer is business as usual. As some of you may know, we homeschool all throughout the year. To read more about why, check out my post, The Benefits of Homeschooling Year Round.

While most are just starting their summer holidays, we’re beginning a new school year. We’ve had the last three weeks off and by the third week, both of the kids were itching to get back to it. Ella was actually asking to do Math Seeds and Reading Eggs every day, which I, of course, was totally okay with.
Last Monday, Ella started Kindergarten and she couldn’t have been more excited. For her, Kindergarten means that she’s officially a big kid. She loves that she gets to do ‘real school work’, as she likes to put it.
This year, we’re doing both R.E.A.D and Interactive Math from The Crafty Classroom as well as Build Your Library for Kindergarten. We’re one week in and so far, we’re loving all three of the programs. Doing all three takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours altogether, depending on how many activities there are that particular day. They’re super interactive with tons of activities, which is great because it keeps her really engaged. I plan on writing reviews on all three of these programs. I’ll probably give it a few months so we can really get a feel for each. So far, so good though. I think we’re going to love Kindergarten!
Liam also started Preschool. We’re continuing to do his Interactive Notebook, which he loves. If he doesn’t feel like doing it one day, that’s no problem. He’s still little, so I don’t push it. I usually just let him choose what he wants to do out of this list of activities. Sometimes though, he just likes to play with our math manipulatives (like these ones, these ones and these ones) and make houses for all of his action figures.
Even though my kids don’t attend traditional school, I still try to make the first day of school special. That morning, we woke up bright and early, got dressed and then came downstairs for a special pancake breakfast. After breakfast we took our first day of school pictures. They were both so excited.
Enter, our First day of School printables. There’s one for every grade, from Preschool all the way to Grade 12. If you’d like one (or more) of these printables, you can download them below.
