Donna Young started this web site in 1998. She was teaching her children at home, had bought a new internet capable computer, and decided to put her homeschool and household files online. Aside from a few donated files, Donna makes all the content for donnayoung.org using several programs such as drawing programs and word processors. Most of all, donnayoung.org is a place on the internet from where you may print Lesson Planners, Household Planners, Calendars, Handwriting Lessons, printable worksheets or papers for several subjects.
Files and Articles
Most of my articles may be viewed without a subscription. Access to files requires a subscription and some files are available for purchase at the shopping cart. Two subscription levels are available, Basic and YoungMinds. Basic includes most of what you can see at the website, but no spreadsheets. Youngminds is visible to its subscribers and no one else. Youngminds includes everything at donnayoung.org as well as additional files, spreadsheets, and articles. The link to subscribe is at the top of every page.
The following pages were updated to include the 2020 calendar:

What do I have to say about home school? My thoughts on home school are scattered all over donnayoung.org, not in just this section. If you spend enough time here, you will know what I think of homeschooling. This section, Homeschool, will have links to articles, game items, etc. It's not a big section and the links often go to other parts of donnayoung.org.

I was one of those children who drew on walls. My art section is not nearly large enough and I really want to work on it, but there are so many parts to this website to work on. The main parts:
The English section is challenging to work on because it is the last place that I want to causally type up articles with poor grammar, iffy usage, and typing errors. I like the subject and when I get over my fear of making mistakes in this section, it ought to grow like crazy.
In the math section I have printable items such as Math Work Paper, Number Line Paper, multiplication charts, coordinate grid paper, drill sheets, triangular flash cards, clock worksheets, money worksheets, black & white graph paper and color, a fraction pie, and a write-up about Unit Multipliers
