Work sheet ideas....

Looking for work sheet ideas for my dd who is 11. 

A little about her: She is aspergers, adhd has a cognitive delay and only reads at most a grade 3 level. I want her to start doing more after school but in a fun way. She does not get homework from school ever, besides her reading every night. 

 

Any suggestions on sites that have a good area of reading and writing comprehension assignments, math and science for all grade levels? Since she varies from each grade on her understandings. Like math is grade 4 and 5, reading 2-3 science is at grade level of 6 and music is on point at her grade level as well. 

I would also like to make some sheets for my 5 yr old as well, who is in kinder and no homework either. We usually just do those books you buy but they are getting bored and very much the samething over and over again, 

I dont want assignments to be too long. so very easy stuff for my oldest at first as to not make her frustrated if that happens I will never get her to calm down enough to even try, Thanks.

For reading: http://www.starfall.com/ 

For math: http://www.coolmath-games.com/

My kids have had fun playing games on coolmath-games. While they haven't used it, I've heard great things about Starfall.

For reading I would highly recommend Raz-Kids for both of your kids. You might have to buy a subscription, or ask is the school has it. It is what our school uses as a supplementary reading program for Guided Reading. It is very good. I think there is a trial you could test out.

If she reads at a 3rd grade level, she might enjoy Heidi Hecklebeck series. My 3rd grader loves it. She she has learned some social skills with the books too.
