Free Office Program – Open Office

05 Nov



Have you heard of Open Office?

I thought I’d post access to this awesome resource because someone was asking for PDFs since they don’t have MS Office, and I thought maybe a lot of you aren’t aware it exists. If you use Windows, Linux, or OS X (Apple?), then this free program is available to use. An alternative to using MS Office,  it has all the goodies MS Office has – word processing, presentation (slideshow) creation, database creation, spreadsheets, drawing, and a formula option, which I suspect is for creating math sheets, but I haven’t actually used at all myself.

The great thing about this program is that in the Word Processing option you can use to save things in MS Word format, so that they can easily be opened, and, in turn, you can open documents created in MS Word. Though I haven’t tried with other types of items, I’m assuming this is probably true for those files as well. It’s a great way for you and your children to have access to using these much-needed computer tools in our high-tech society, without the hefty price tag.

Word Roots B2 – Schedule and Quizzes Added

03 Jun

The Critical Thinking Co. Word Roots B2

Well, we’ve reached the end of the year. Seventh grade is over. Now that it’s over I have completed the worksheets for certain books and curriculum, and have a little bit of time to add them here for you guys.

So, for now, I’ve added a page for The Critical Thinking Company’s Word Roots B2 book. It includes a basic schedule, as well as all the quizzes I made to go along with the pages of the book. They’re just basic Document files, nothing fancy, but it saves you from having to make them. Hopefully they’ll help someone out there.
