St Aidens Homeschool ~ Free Grammar & Vocabulary Printables Uploaded

Hello everyone,

A large number of updates have taken place at the all-new St Aiden’s Homeschool website.  The new look is not universal as yet but we’re working on getting it finished as soon as possible.  This will make for quicker loading pages, easier access to downloads and more user friendly navigational areas.

I’ll highlight but a few of the most recent updates where you can download free printables, worksheets, eBooks, activity books and resources.

St Aidens Homeschool ~ Grammar & Vocabulary Index.

This section is ideally suited to elementary and slightly older learners and encompasses inter alia vocabulary and
grammar exercises such as parts of speech, tenses, antonyms, homonyms, homophones and synonyms.

The activities and worksheets available through this website are by no means exhaustive, and many far more complex
words can be included in the activities for older learners who have a higher level of vocabulary/comprehension.
Exercises are ideal for student/educator interaction and perfect for homeschooling fun.

Affixes ►This is a letter or a series of letters which is added to the beginning or end of a word to change the meaning e.
g. -ful added to “mouth” creates “mouthful” which means the mouth is full.

Antonyms ► An Antonym is a word that has a meaning opposite to that of another word.  Example: Old is an antonym
of new or young.  Origin: From Greek, “anti” – against.

Adjectives ► “describing” words e.g. happy, annoying, and lazy and can be used to modify or intensify a noun or verb.

Adverbs ► words which are used in a sentence to give extra information about the verb, adjective or another adverb.

Articles ► There are three articles in the English language –  a / an and the.  They are often used in sentences before
nouns that are common and countable.

Compounds

Contractions ► a shortened form of a word or words

Homonyms ► Words that have the same spelling & pronunciation but different meanings, e.g. can, can – orange &
orange

Homophones 2 or more words having the same pronunciation, but different meanings & spellings – e.g. no, know –
red & read – hair &hare

Homographs ► Words which have the same spellings but different meanings and (sometimes) pronunciation.

Idioms ► Spoken or written sentences where the meaning is not obvious from the individual words used e.g. “Your
account is in the red”.

Nouns ►  Nouns are words used to name something that has a physical form, i.e. something that one can touch or feel
e.g. food, animals, clothing etc.

Proper Nouns ► “naming” nouns e.g. Boston is a proper noun.  It is the name of a city.  Jane is a proper Noun.  It is the
name of a person.

Plurals More than one of anything  (On Affixes Page)

Synonyms ► Words having the same meaning but are different word/s or phrase/s – “shut up” & “Be quiet”

Tenses ► Past, present, future tenses e.g. swam, swimming, swim

Verbs ► “action” or “doing” words e.g. fishing ◄ “I am going fishing.”

Our little more-than-two-legged friends have had a major overhaul and a comprehensive index on insects will direct you to where you want to download your free printables, worksheets and ebooks.

Halloween is upon us, as is Thanskgiving and fall, and once again I offer you literally thousands of pages of free resources, lesson plans, ideas and printables to make use of to enhance your holiday season.

I will post another update in the very new future with links to more free homeschool resources.

In the meantime I’d like to mention that today is the 1st day of CurrClick’s most exciting promotion of the season: Our Trunk or Treat Sale and Freebie Event! Today, October 18th (around 10:00 CST) through October 31st, customers can search for 8 FREE education products hidden all over CurrClick.com. And even better, fall (and Halloween and Thanksgiving) themed titles will be discounted by up to 75%! You will not want to miss this exciting and fun event.

 

These are a few of the most recent major updates for now, so I’ll end off by wishing you a very safe and festive Holiday Season.

Best wishes
