13-Month Calendar Generator

http://donnayoung.org/calendars/calendar.php
Designed for homeschoolers who school from mid-month to mid-month year-round. With the generator, you may type the header, choose the starting month and starting year. Generator programmed by John Young.

Cursive Handwriting Lessons

http://donnayoung.org/penmanship/cursive-den.htm
The cursive handwriting worksheets on this web page use a handwriting style that is similar to D'Nealian, however there are some Zaner-Bloser elements in some of the worksheets. There are 28 worksheets with 4 short lessons per worksheet. A writing animation accompanies a few of the lessons.

Connecting Cursive Capitals

http://donnayoung.org/penmanship/cursive-capitals.htm
Connecting Cursive Capitals is a series of cursive handwriting lessons that practice altered and non-altered cursive capital letters to connect the capital letter with a following lowercase letter. There are 3 worksheets (6 lessons ) so far. I will work on these and upload them over time. Update, 4/4/9: I've added 5 more files.

Kindergarten Diploma

http://donnayoung.org/forms/planners/certificates.htm
I spent a bit of time on a new kindergarten diploma. This one is a serious looking file and it's typeable. If you need a kindergarten diploma, read more about the file at the new certificate page.

HSF Archives

http://homeschoolforms.com/archives/
July 2003, I opened a homeschool board at homeschoolforms.com. Despite the existence of multitudes of home-ed forums all across the internet, I started the board because it seemed like a good idea to provide the service. Unfortunately, the longer I had the board, the more time it required to maintain. Due to growing time restraints and not having enough time to work on donnayoung.org, I closed the board about 4 years later. Now, 2 years later, I am finally archiving the discussion threads at HSF Archives. Read more at About

Alexia Planner

http://donnayoung.org/forms/planners/alexi.htm
This is just another planner option. I remade the Alexia Planner files from images to preserve the font that I use for this planner. There are only nine files for this planner and I am not sure if I will make more. This won't be the last planner that I add this year, two more are on my list. There is a bit more about upcoming planners including a sample file at the alexia blog entry.

 

Happy Homeschooling,
Donna Young
