So many parents need help to teach their child to write. Over the years of homeschooling, I have had wonderful success using my laminated handwriting charts.

It includes new detailed instructions & examples on line placement for writing on lined notebook pages, starting & ending points for each letter, as well as new charts that include coloured numbered dots and arrow guidelines.

My youngest daughter’s middle school Maths Mini Office needs an upgrade and so I created some new pages to laminate and use in our Maths Mini Office. These pages include ~
- Decimal and number value placement chart. Handy to calculate multiplying and dividing by 10’s, 100’s or 100’s.
- Compass with bearings. Handy for Geography and Geometry.
- X-Y Axis Grid for drawing graphs
- Positive & Negative Number Line to teach integers.

My kids have all used their mini offices for years,
mostly for maths, and, I am sad to admit, mostly for multiplication tables!
(I wish their mental maths was much better, but we have all been lazy in this area. Sigh.)
Anyway, a mini office is a very handy reference that one can personalize for each child’s needs and ages and stages.
I have recently updated both my Junior and the Senior Mini Offices.
The Junior Mini Office contains ~
- Number Line & Number Chart
- Ordinal numbers & Fractions
- Tally or scores, finger counting signs, shapes, directions
- Number words & Roman numerals with blank clock face
- Multiplication Tables
- Seasons & Months
- Days of the week & time of the day
- Address & Where am I?
- Sight Word Walls
- Family Words
- Print Handwriting Chart
- Cursive Handwriting Chart
The Senior Mini Office has only Maths information or cheat sheets ~
- Multiplication table
- Number chart
- Roman Numerals & Angles
- 2D Shapes with their circumference and area formula
- 3D Shapes with their circumference and area and volume formula
- Maths symbols & Compass directions and bearings
- Conversions of time, distance, volumes, mass
- Order of operations
- Fractions to decimals & percentages, Recurring decimals to fractions
- Different types of fractions
- Base numbers squares & cubes

Pop over to my Mini Office page & check out my super-duper all-on-one-page Calendar for junior primary!
- This is a 1 page-does-it-all-in-one chart, which when all assembled with rotating circles and slide bars instead of fiddly flash cards, pictures, Velcro and all those other bits & bobs, the child simply rotates the circles under the windows and slides the viewer to reveal the relevant pictures and information. Easy as pie!
Handy Tips ~
- Print out only the pages your child needs. (It is in A4 landscape format. You can try print 2 pages on 1 page to create a smaller A5 version.)
- Paste onto card stock or a file folder or lapbook.
- My senior children used a plastic display file folder.
- LAMINATE! It will last for years.
- Use whiteboard markers on your laminated surfaces.
- Keep handy in the child’s maths books, notebook or ring binder.
It is really worth laminating this chart when you make it!
We have used our chart for over 7 years and it is still as good as new!
