  1. I’m really amazed by your work. I hope that somehow this is being lucrative for you. I emailed months ago about the printing problem, and you promptly took care of it. I had to step away from the timing aspect because my 6 year old lacked the motor skills and we were not making any progress. We did a couple of kumon books on addition, subtraction, couting coins, and telling time and we are back. She is two weeks from first grade and today she finished her first timed worksheet.

    I’m an ESL teacher and make a lot of worksheets myself. They are usually on word and the graphics and format are not good at all. Could you give me some advice on software I should buy or on a class I should take?

    I also work with many teachers and will always recommend this site. Excellent work!

    Try adding coins if you can.

    Thanks again.

  2. Hi John –

    Welcome back and I hope both you and your daughter had a great summer break.

    All the worksheets generated here are created by Python programs producing raw HTML files, so they’re not exactly end-user friendly, but they do allow me to automate the generation of larger numbers of variations of the worksheets. That’s not a great solution unless you’ve got a knack for software development. I originally started this web site because I found myself laying out a lot of worksheets in Quark Xpress. That’s a little overkill as well, but it worked okay and it was the tool I knew well enough to do the job until we needed more volume here. You could probably do something similar in Pages or Word using text boxes as a layout device.

    I know there are some worksheet design programs around on the Internet, but none of them that I found are free… I think I looked at one called “Worksheet Creator” from Schoolhouse Software that looked like you could do a bit with it if you invested some time learning the tool (and bought it obviously). Google’s your friend there. If you’re going to be doing a lot of this sort of thing it may be worth making an investment.

    Coins is a great idea… I’ll get that on the list!

    Take care!

  6. Thank you for sharing these worksheets. We encountered a problem with exponents and your worksheets have been very helpful. I will revisit this site soon and will tell our math teach about this wonderful resource

  7. Every year that I have taught, my personal goal has been to have one student say “thank you” at the end of the school year. It doesn’t always happen.

    I used your worksheets last year and have already tapped into your excellent resources to help my students this year.

    “Thank you”

  8. Thanks, Mr. O!

    I know I didn’t say as many “Thank yous” to my teachers, especially in high school. Yours here is greatly appreciated.

  9. This is my first year to home school my 8 yr old son. When I pulled him from public school he was BEHIND in a few areas. Public school was just not meeting his slower thought processing and the teachers did not care to take any time for him. Due to the economy, I had lost my 12 yr. long career. I was worried about having to buy all the 2nd grade math, telling time, etc. material I needed to work on bringing him up to par. THEN- I FOUND YOU!!!! I am sooo very greatful for you and what you have created. You are a blessing!! A lot of my fears were calmed. May God bless you above and beyond your wildest dreams for your generosity.

  10. Hi Athena –

    We have several home-schooling friends, and that’s been a real temptation for us here… It’s a real time commitment and I admire anyone for taking it on. I’d encourage you to find other home schooling parents in your area, which will doubtless be a great source of support.

    Meanwhile, I’m sure your new career as a teaching parent will be very rewarding, for both you and your son… Thanks for your support and encouragement!

  11. Thank you so much Worksheet Dad for this publication! My son has just entered 4th grade; he and I are both fighting the long division monster…OK, I admit, I couldn’t remember how to calculate LD with any number of digits long or short…I just remember how difficult it was for me and how at that time I turned off from math; I don’t want that same fate for my son. We are going to try your suggestion of working on one problem per page no matter how many digits are presented. Thank you again! // Rhonda
