I have hands on experience tutoring multiple grades. I focus on helping intervention kids at my local school. I am partially homeschooling my own children. I often volunteer at our local school and all of my products were made and given free to my local school!
I am the parent of child with ADHD and my focus has been for several years to find fun engaging ways to keep her focused and a willing participant when it comes to reviewing material being taught at school. Although she is willing to do almost anything once, reviews and repetition are a real struggle for her. So I started making hands on activities for her that allowed her to physically manipulate pieces while learning, and incorporated smaller writing worksheets to fill in to demonstrate her mastery of the skills we were working on.

I am the parent of three amazing daughters. My eldest daughter is funny smart and full of energy. My middle daughter is dramatic, kind and caring. My youngest is silly, sweet and just about ready to take her first steps. Our days are filled with laughter, our afternoons are filled with homework and chores and our evenings are filled with love hugs and hopefully sweet dreams. When we are not busy with homework or chores, we enjoy reading, movies, laughing, long walks to the park and soap finger paint in the bathtub! We started making activities for our eldest to help her review essential skills for school when a teacher tried to tell us she was falling behind in class even though she had tested in reading, comprehension and math at the top of her class. Our daughter described worksheets and text book questions as 'boring' and I needed a way to engage her. We later found out she has ADHD and our technique of taking school skills and turning them into games or activities really helped her show her mastery of the materials she was being taught which her refusal to do anything repetitive was over shadowing. Once we got started it was hard to keep it to ourselves. We started sharing activities with our local school and after a teachers suggestion we brought our creative ideas to teacherspayteachers. Our activities have grown over the last year incorporating games and activities for our youngest who will start pre-k in a year or two all the way up to second grade this year and as next year rolls out we will start adding any grade three activities we make. We hope you find these activities and there worksheets to be fun, engaging and useful for your students in your class, or your children at home who could use a little fun or extra work on a skill.
