Free printables for next year: Literacy Centers; Montessori; Math

With so many boys in our house, I'm always on the lookout for hands-on learning activities. So I was thrilled to find a ton of very thorough, progressive K-3rd grade literacy centers from the Florida Center for Reading Research.

I also found so many free Montessori downloads for preschool, some of the best of which can be found here and here. There are even many for older kids here.

Plus, I was excited by all these math tubs/math centers (I confess, I am a homeschool junkie). These ideas are also helpful.

Free, downloadable guides

Yes, I know it's summer. But I'm one of "those people" that are constantly alert and on the prowl for school stuff. I stumbled on this page with HUGE downloadable education packets for the Oregon Trail and the Pacific Northwest Exploration. Some of the pages apply only if you get to visit the Oregon Trail Museum. These are well done with lots of sketches, activities and more that are suitable for all ages so you can pick and choose what you need for your crew. Have fun!
