For use with Saxon Math Home Study
(may be used in place of Meeting Strips provided by Saxon, or as an independent warm up for any math curriculum)
I have added the Grade 2 work sheets because I received so many requests! My original work sheets were for Grade 3, which I made for use with my own children. (You can read more about that on the Grade 3 Work Sheet Page)
Saxon Math 2 Home Study Edition has 130 132 lessons. I have arranged the work sheets 5 on a page, making 26 pages total. (It has recently been brought to my attention that I only include 130 worksheets - the last 2 are missing! This is true, so for now, you are on your own for the last 2 lessons.)
While the Grade 2 work sheets are naturally more simple than Grade 3, there were a few aspects of the "the Meeting" that I found tedious: drawing the patterns, thinking up daily activities for the time portion, special events for the calendar, and keeping track of which fact families to practice. I can't help you with the daily activities or the special events, since obviously those are going to depend on your own family. But I have painstakingly drawn all the patterns for you!
Also, I have included the numbers for the fact families, which begin in Lesson 83. Saxon does not indicate which numbers to use each day, the teachers edition leaves that up to you. I personally had trouble keeping track of which ones we had already done. So for the work sheets I put in the numbers for all the fact families 1+1 to 9+9, starting with the lower numbers first. The last 3 lessons also use 10+10, 11+11 and 12+12. Note that I did not make room on the work sheets to write the fact families themselves - I just provided the 3 numbers to be used each day. Saxon suggests to have your child write the 4 number sentences on a chalk board. We used a dry erase board which my son loved to write on - it helped keep interest in the lesson.

I made these work sheets as a homeschool mom to make my homeschool day run more smoothly. My hope is that they will do the same for you. If you are not happy with these worksheets, please let me know! If I can't fix it, I will be glad to issue a refund.

Printing for Multiple Families or Schools
I believe that if you purchase these work sheets for your children, you should be able to print as many copies as you need for your family. If you find the work sheets useful and would like to share them with your friends, I would ask you to direct your friends to my web site. I have priced the work sheets low enough so that each family can affort to purchase their own set.
If you are a teacher of students other than your own children, and would like to use the worksheets for your classroom, please choose the "classroom teacher" option before adding to your cart. Purchasing the classroom teacher license grants you permission to use the work sheets for your own classes, for as many students as you wish - there is no restriction regarding how many years or classes they may be used for. If other teachers would like to use these work sheets, please direct them to this site to purchase their own copy for their own classrooms.
Ordering Printed Copies
I am not offering printed pages at this time, mostly because my own printing resources are very limited!
These worksheets are not published by Saxon Math and are NOT endorsed or affiliated by Saxon Math in any way. They are an independent supplement designed to work with the Saxon Math Grade 3 curriculum. They may be used instead of the blank meeting strips that Saxon Math provides. I found them helpful, and I hope you will too.
Are work sheets available for other grades?
Grade 1 Weather Stickers
Grade 1 is very simple and does not need any additional work sheets, however I have added a page of weather stickers for use on the weather chart, which I created for my son.
Grade 3 Work Sheets are available
The format of Saxon Math changes significantly after the 3rd grade. I did not find any additional work sheets needed for Saxon 5/4 or above.
