Homeschool Holiday Math Practice

This post contains affiliate links to the materials I actually use for homeschooling. I hope you find them helpful. Thank you for your support!

If you have a middle schooler who needs a "care package" of math practice for home over this upcoming Winter Break, here are some suggestions. These are all FREE downloads from Teachers Pay Teachers. Yes, I know that you get what you pay for, and I have not always had success with this site. (To be accurate, I have rarely been pleased. I've found writing riddled with misspellings and punctuation errors, as well as answer keys full of mistakes. I have sent many a friendly/critical message to a curriculum writer pointing out one thing or another.) But I have persisted in my search for easily shareable math practice, mainly because daily math practice is crucial. And I've included a variety of skills here. It is super-easy to share online links with families who are at home looking for something to do. A worksheet in a child's backpack can easily go astray, but an email to a parent lasts forever!

The links below are all things that I think students would enjoy. I hope there's something in this collection that you like as well! Happy Holidays!

I also appreciate your suggestions, so please feel free to share links in the Comments! I love Jamie York's book of math puzzles for grades 4 through 12, but kids really seem to respond well to cute holiday graphics. Sometimes we just have to relax and give in and let them have fun with it. And if the assignment is engaging, well, that's half the homework battle already won.
