"Super Teacher Worksheets" Is My Friend

Super Teacher Worksheets

Please take a deeeep breath, open your mind, and try to forget that the title of this site has the word "worksheets" in it.  Just give it a chance -- I know most of you already have - lol

I share this site even though I suspect every elementary teacher in America already goes there.  It is a fabulous resource for content worksheets should you need them. (Seriously perfect for those emergency sub plans!)  Their resources include worksheets for math, reading, phonics, handwriting, grammar, spelling, science, and social studies.  They don't just have traditional worksheets, but resources such as one of my favorite writing center resources:  The Editing Wheel (see it here) I have a class set in our writing center and my students love using them!  They have proofreading worksheets I use as warm-ups sometimes (check them out here).  They have writing prompts, teacher "helpers," holiday fun pages, and brain teasers.  They even have Back to School pages to help your students get to know one another. 

Though I will state the obvious:  worksheets should never be the only resource for student practice and/or assessment, "Super Teacher Worksheets" should be a part of your teacher's toolbox.
