Cheet Sheets

Finally got these cheat sheets done!

The math ones are to help Grace with the concepts and math vocabulary that she often forgets or gets confused by.

The grammar ones are for both the big kids.

While I'm not a grammar Nazi (I don't care if they never now what a participle is, I had to look it up even though I use them all the time), I do want them to know and properly use the basics. This means the major parts of speech, punctuation, capitalization, complete sentences, and probably a few other things along the way as well.

But I believe that solid reading skills are the foundation for good writing skills, so we focus much more of our energies and time on reading rather than developing formal writing. 

Anyhoo, for those who were interested, here they are.

Side 1 Addition, Side 2 Subtraction

Side 1 Angles and Shapes, Side 2 Math Concepts

Grace still struggles with the order of the months and especially their abbreviations.


  1. The booger green monster waddled quiveringly into Walmart, wafting his pungent smell into that cavernous space.
    ......Zak can write the next sentence of the story!

    1. Haha! He says, "Challenge accepted!" Here is his addition:

      He spewed his horrible snot on all the innocent pedestrians, and then he sang his devious little rhyme:
      "Pick your nose, Pick your nose, Wipe the snot, On your clothes!"
      All the boys screamed with laughter, while the girls shrieked in disgust.

      (I think he passes English for the day!)

    2. Woohoo!! Yes indeed!! I should have chosen a chalky boxy gardener etc. etc.......!!
      Great job, Zak! And All Boy!
      A+ on English today!!
