FREE printable first grade curriculum

I have finally finished getting this printable first grade curriculum ready for you to download.  I believe in sharing the fruits of my labor and want any parent who cannot afford curriculum be able to home school their child.  It will cost you some printer ink and paper, that’s all!!!

I have utilized some other FREE downloadable pages from starfall.com.  I have used this online site way back 20 years ago when they first started and offered cases of their items for free.  Now you have to pay for them to have them shipped, but you can download and print them for free as well.

This is the site

Print off the following items:

Block Print Writing Journal I

all the cut up books

For myself, I used black and white colors as to save on ink.  My children enjoyed coloring them in themselves.

Then I did some filler work.  I bought at the discount store a book of mazes, dot to dots, and hidden pictures.  They cost me 50 cents each.  I then went to this site and printed of some mazes.  I gave them 2 extra filler pages each day.

I did the easy mazes for ages 4-6.  I chose two books and printed them off.

Mazes, Free Printables, Easy to Hard

This is enough school to do 3 days a week and covers all that your  first grader needs to know.  I just finished testing my first grader and it covered the same items.

Sept 12 days, Oct 12 days, Nove 12, Dec 9, Jan 12, Feb 12, March 15, April 15, and May 6 days.  This equals 107 days of school.  But there is much work to do in one day, you can easily split it up between a few days.

I am keeping this short, lots going on over here in our little corner of North Carolina and I will be sharing soon.  But I wanted to get this out for those of you that are preparing for next year.   I will post soon how I organize it all together.

Be blessed.

    We love Starfall! We bought the apps for our Kindle Fire and all the cut up books are on it, along with a lot of the other printables. My son loves it. 🙂 Thanks so much for all you are doing. This is helping us a great deal! God bless.

    • So grateful that you are able to use this and that it helps. I will look up the apps! We don’t have a Kindle but will look it up for Droids:) Thanks so much for commenting, its encouragement.

        I have a question for you. How many pages do you do per day? Example: 1 page of maze, 1 Starfall writing, 1 from your curriculum, etc. I’m just trying to get a handle on how much to do per day. Thanks!

        • hello Ashley, After you print it off, each day will begin a new letter to copy. At the top there should be a number of how many printed pages per day(if there is more than 1). I bought some cheap maze, dot to dot, and picture find books so I use one of each per day. You can print off however many you want as extra fillers per day. The starfall writing you will put on the day it says too. If you look through the printed curriculum it will show you when they are to cut up the books or read the books or do workbook pages. Hope that helps you! Enjoy

  3. What do you use to test your.children’s progress?

    • Every spring we do the Cat 5 test. Everyone has tested WAY above what their grade levels are supposed to be. 🙂 We buy our tests from Christian Liberty. I believe they were $25 a piece this year. Highly recommended for the ease.

  4. I want to first say thank you. I wanted to see if the downloadable schedule that is broken down by months goes with the advanced z
    K/1st curriculum?

    • Yes that is the schedule of how many days that I did the kinder/first grade course. Hope that helps and I am very happy to be able to share:) Be blessed

    Hi first let me say thank you so much for your kindness to all of us in sharing what you do 🙂 I have researched many curriculums and I am really encouraged by what you have listed. I’m new to homeschooling as my oldest is doing kindergarten this year. I downloaded your link and see there is 280 pages to print. Do you just go straight through and combine the two grades or is there a starting & stopping point for kindergarten & first grade? Thank you for your time and help with this !

    • Your most welcome. We just go straight through it. There isn’t a specific grade level start/stop. Happy to be able to share.

    I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all the wonderful homeschool and home management resources that you are so kind to share. Last spring, I started my 5 year old with your K-!st curriculum and we will be finished with it in about 2 weeks. I have used all sorts of curriculum in the last 12 years of homeschooling, and I have always thought that if I had the time I would put my own ideas together. Turns out that you put together just what I would have! I am so blessed to have found your site. Thank you so much.

    • Oh I am so glad that you have been able to utilize the curriculum. I’m thankful for the ability to share with others through my blog. It works! It is simple, straight forward–and covers the basics. If you want to do more, then do more, but if you couldn’t due to resources or time, this will do it:) I’m thankful for your comments. Have a wonderful day!

  7. Thank you.
    We have been looking for curriculum for our local temple schools in Thailand.
    for volunteers and teachers.

    Thank you! This was so helpful! I felt so overwhelmed when I made the initial decision to homeschool. Looking through the curriculum you provided has put my mind at ease…. I am truly grateful.

  9. I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed your website! I bought the 5th grade book for my oldest and middle and downloaded this one for my 6 year old. You are a true blessing! I am very excited to be using this as part of our curriculum this year. Thank you!

    Hey Amy, I’m so very thankful I ran across your YouTube video. I am a stay at home mom and I homeschool as well but I have yet to find recourse like you provide. We have for the last year struggled with the ups and downs of homeschooling. I’m very excited to try your stuff. One question how do you organize the 1st grade full curriculum for a whole year day by day?

    • Hello Tiffany, I am very thankful that you came across my site:) For first grade, I break it down and do it three days per week. If you are using the free version on my site, at the top of the page it will tell you how many pages to do that day. It starts out with only one but within a month they are doing much more. I also give you resources from another site that I use for teaching phonics. My first graders, I just started them on those pages. I do a story each week and split the workbook pages up for the whole week–it gives them 2-3 extra pages each day. This seems to work. We do other hands on things for the rest of the week. Not too much “bookwork” for when they are younger:) I hope that helps. Be blessed!

  11. Does this curriculum have the teaching guide as well or just the worksheets. Thank you for all the hard work and letting others use it! 🙂

  12. Good morning,
    On the dictation of words are you expecting the kids to be able to spell them? Because my daughter can’t spell yet . And is learning blends is it okay to give her clues on the spelling ? Do we need to spend more time until she masters them?

    Thank you

    • Hello, I am going through this right now with my younger ones….mine can’t spell either. At one time I had one that could, but this set of mine cannot. What I do is write them out on a marker board and show them how the words are spelled out. After they write them we go over them and they sound them out. We do it together. They are getting better…are they full fledge readers??? Nope, but much better than before. I always help them…don’t make it frustrating…Keep reading to them, go over them. We do the blends in the morning and in the afternoon. In time they will get them. It just takes time. We are up to the page where you read the words…..we will probably do that same page for about a week….until they can get close to them. Even if that means we don’t do all the other pages for school…..This works especially since we only do school 3 days per week…so I know that we can go slow as they are learning and then in a few months when they are a little better, we can maybe do it more often. Take the time…no frustrating…help her as long as she needs it.

  13. Amy,
    Thank you so much😇

    Hi! I’m starting my daughter homeschooling and am totally overwhelmed on where to start! We have been using ABC Mouse but I need to know that we are on the right track. Is there anyway you could email me pointers on what to do daily to get started with her?

  15. Thank you so much, Amy! These worksheets are wonderful.
