FREE Math for Grades K-6

I found a way to get awesome FREE math programs for grades K-6 from Houghton Mifflin Math 2007.  You won’t need any books!  Follow these easy steps:

  1. Go here and click on the grade level you need. 
  2. Click on Leveled Practice.
  3. Then click on the Unit Number.
  4. Then select the Lesson Number at the top.
  5. At the bottom, select Reteach and click on the green GO button. 
    • This document will be used as the student textbook lesson. 
    • This will take you to a printable worksheet that includes lesson instruction for your student and some practice problems like you would find in the student textbook.
    • After printing this page, close that window and go back to the one where you selected the lesson number and document.
  6. Now on that same lesson number, change it from Reteach to Homework and click on the green GO button.
    • Print this document for the student to complete as their homework.
    • After printing this page, close that window and go back to the one where you selected the lesson number and document.
  7. If your student needs additional practice, use the same lesson number and change it from Homework to Practice and click on the green GO button.
    • Print this document for additional practice.
  8. Repeat this process for each lesson within each unit number, and then you’ll have a complete math program without spending a penny other than your paper and ink.  Yay!
  9. On the main menu where you selected Leveled Practice, you can also Vocabulary Cards and print out all of the math vocabulary cards with definitions for each unit.  There are also Teaching Tools and practice with Problem Solving found on that main menu.

This is quite a valuable resource!  You could easily use this as your main math program, but it’s also a great resource for looking up specific topics with which your student needs extra help and practice. 

In addition, there are printable games kids can play to reinforce concepts here.  Just select your grade level.  Even better, you can go here and select your grade level, then select Math Demonstrations for video math lessons or eGames for online math games your students can play.  Enjoy!
