HelpTeaching.com has a wide range of online and printable tests and worksheets for PreK-12th grade. This review, however, is focused on the items available for the elementary grades.
For the younger children, there is a large selection of colorful printable worksheets, focusing on colors, letters, numbers, etc.. As they get older they are more test based worksheets, multiple choice mostly, in a variety of subjects.
Early grades include subjects such as writing, spelling, math, science, literature, seasons/holidays. grammar, and more.
I have to be honest, I’m not a huge supporter of traditional worksheets in early childhood, however, with a bit of creativity, worksheets can be turned into more hands on activities. Some of the choices are also beginning scissor skills (I recommend printing on cardstock or gluing to a heavier paper for ease of use for younger children), beginning writing (tracing), shapes, colors, ABCs etc…
Here are a few of the worksheets we used and how we made them more HANDS ON for my almost 3 year old.
Size Matching (smaller to larger):
It takes a little bit of creativity to make worksheets hands on with little ones, but it’s not too difficult. Typically, you can use things you have at home, cut out shapes from cardboard, go on color hunts, there are endless possibilities! There are also printable clip cards available, which are easy hands on fun! Just print, laminate and get some clothes pins! These type of activities are also great for building fine motor skills, to get them ready to start writing!
For my 5th grader, I found tests on topics he is doing notebooking pages for, such as the human body and different animals (ants, iguanas).
This program is also capable in helping you make YOUR OWN tests! Tests can be assigned (via email) and completed online or printed out (this is how we used them). Additionally, you can generate Bingo cards (words or numbers) and word searches!
There are also some lessons available, most lessons are for older grades (middle school/high school), but there are some available for the younger grades. Lessons included are for ELA, Science and Math. They typically include a video, older grades also have some reading material and test questions. You can also assign lessons to students (same as tests).
