### Fractions Reference Sheet for Elementary Students

Worksheets and Reference Sheets Free Printables

Free Printable Math Worksheets for Parents and Teachers

Math is certainly one of the more difficult subjects for students. After all, you’re not always dealing with numbers of things that can be seen, but often abstract concepts like fractions, decimals or dividing and multiplying large numbers that can’t be envisioned. Worksheets have come a long way, though, and now you can help make mastery of those concepts much easier for young students. Our free printable math worksheets cover a lot of ground, including multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, fractions, square roots, odd and even numbers, and much more. Check them out for yourself! To see more worksheets, click the “load more printables” link at the bottom of the page.

Fractions Reference Sheet to Help Students Master Fractions

Fractions are not a student’s best friend, yet they must be learned. It’s one of the toughest areas of math for students to get the hang of, but this fractions reference sheet can make it much easier. As you can see from the picture above, it covers fractions from a whole to 1/4. Each fraction is represented as a circle graph and as a bar graph to depict how much “space” each fraction leaves when it is removed. This visual depiction makes envisioning the fractions much easier. Not only can students use this for reference, but they can work on the sheet, too! Ask the students to color in another piece of the pie that’s divided into thirds to get two-thirds, for example. Or ask for them to color in enough pieces to get three-quarters. There are lots of different ways you can use this worksheet to your students’ advantage in the classroom. The terrific thing is that it can go along with real life objects, as well. If you have toy pie pieces or even a real pie, you can cut the object to depict what is shown in the pictures. Similarly, you can do the same with blocks, as with the bar graph. Have the top part of the fraction be a different color than the bottom part. Get creative with fractions to make learning them fun!

Lorax Quotes

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.

It's not about what it is. It's about what it can become.

Why do you need a tree? It just... sticks out of the ground and it does what? I don't even know what it does. Look! We've GOT a tree! It's the Oak-a-matic! Three modes! Summer, Fall, Winter, and... Disco!

A tree falls the way it leans. Be careful which way you lean.

The more smog in the sky, the more people will buy.

I I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.

What I want more than anything, is to see a real living tree.

Yes, I am the Lorax who speaks for the trees, which you seem to be chopping as fast as you please.

Our research shows that people will buy ANYTHING if you put it in a plastic bottle!

Look, everyone here needs the trees and you're chopping them down!

Now that's a thneed! Nothing unmanly about knitting. No sir!

You listen to me, boy. Don't go pocking around in things you don't understand, or I'll be your worst nightmare. I'm Frankenstein's head on a spider's body!

### Free Printable Blank October Calendars

Free Printable Blank Calendars for Your Home

It’s already that time again – time to print a calendar for next month. Can you believe it? In just a few days, October will be here, so it’s time to get prepared now. FreePrintableOnline has a number of free printable calendars for you to choose from in monthly, weekly and daily formats. For a general overview, I’d recommend a monthly calendar. At a quick glance, you can know what your commitments are without leafing through several pages to find out what you have going on for the upcoming week. In order for a monthly calendar to be most effective, though, you need to keep it minimal. Don’t write every detail of your life in those little boxes. They should be left for important appointments, birthdays and anniversaries. For instance, your regular cleaning routine wouldn’t be very helpful in a monthly calendar format, but if you want to remind yourself to change the filters in your heater, that’s something out of the regular routine that needs to go on a calendar. Keep reading for tips on selecting the right calendar for you!

Get Organized with Free Printable Blank Calendars

Blank doesn’t have to mean boring! FreePrintableOnline.com offers a variety of different free printable blank calendars, but they’re as colorful and beautiful as they are practical. You can print out several of these to save for future months and years. Alternatively, if you’d like to just print one that’s reusable, simply laminate the calendar first and use dry erase markers to mark your appointments and special events. After the month is over, simply wipe the calendar clean and store it away for the next year. It’s incredibly easy to do! If you don’t have a laminating device, a plastic sheet protector found in any mass retail store will do the job just as effectively.

Free Printable Blank Calendars for October

As you can see, the free printable blank calendar for October is absolutely beautiful! It features a bold, colorful design of green, orange, white and red. It’s perfect for fall. Trees, falling leaves and pumpkins grace this page. As you’ll see, the numbers on the calendar are left out, so you can use this template year after year for a beautiful October calendar. Hang it on your wall, put it on the refrigerator, or put it in your planner if you build your own custom planners. Print one for your children, too, so they can remember their friends’ birthdays, important test or quiz dates and important homework assignments and their due dates. By teaching children organization and responsibility now, you’ll have a much easier time getting them to keep their commitments when they’re older. All of the calendars are designed in color, but you can also print them in black and white if you’d like. Just change your printer’s settings to gray scale or the black and white option first before printing. Feel free to pass the calendars along to your crafty friends, too!

### Printable Doctor Who Quotes

Your Favorite Doctor Who Quotes

FreePrintableOnline.com appreciates wisdom no matter what form it takes, so they've compiled free printable quotes and sayings from a variety of resources including celebrities, great minds and the good doctor. Take a look! You may find one to put on your wall.

Printable Doctor Who Quotes About Life
So, you want to get some advice from the time traveller, eh? In the quotes about life section, you'll find wonderful resources to help you live a better life. Quotes from Doctor Who, Cary Grant, Mark Twain and many other sources grace the page. They're printed on beautiful backgrounds and are perfect for display in your home or office. Here's a printable doctor who quote that makes you think: "In 900 years of time and space I've never met anyone who wasn't important."

Looking for more Doctor Who quotes? Try these on for size!

The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.

Letting it get to you. You know what that's called? Being alive. Best thing there is. Being alive right now is all that counts.

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Time isn't a straight line. It's all... bumpy-wumpy. There's loads of boring stuff. Like Sundays and Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons. But now and then there are Saturdays.

This is one corner… of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see.

Good men don't need rules.

The future pivots around you. Here. Now. So do good. For humanity. And for Earth.
There's a difference between dormant and patient.

You gave me hope and then you took it away. That's enough to make anyone dangerous. God knows what it will do to me.

Everything has its time and everything dies.

Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!

The thing is, Adam, time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guide book. You've got to throw yourself in, eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers - or is that just me? Stop asking questions. Go and do it!

You lot, you spend all your time thinking about dying, like you're gonna get killed by eggs, or beef, or global warming, or asteroids. But you never take time to imagine the impossible. Like maybe you survive.

A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting.

### Healthy Foods Worksheet

Teach Kids Nutrition with a Healthy Foods Worksheet
Childhood obesity is an increasing epidemic in the United States today, and sometimes this problem occurs because the child has not learned healthy eating habits. This is not necessarily the fault of the parents, as income plays a large role in the resources (including food) that are available to a family. Nevertheless, it is vital that children be taught to make healthy decisions when they are presented with a variety of foods, as is the case at school. Here, you'll find resources that will help you in many aspects of your classroom teaching. We have free printable worksheets on topics ranging from math to nutrition, so check out all that we have available for your particular subject or age group. To be alerted to new printables as they're put on the site, sign up for our newsletter or bookmark the site to check back.

The Importance of Good Eating Habits
Why is it so important to begin healthy eating habits at an early age? Well, there are many reasons. For one thing, the earlier healthy eating habits are learned, the better. This will minimize the damage that can be done by frequently eating foods that are bad for you. Learning early also ensures that the information becomes ingrained, giving the child better odds of retaining and utilizing the information as he or she gets older. Learning about nutrition and other class subjects doesn't have to be boring. At FreePrintableOnline, our free printable preschool worksheets are designed colorfully and beautifully to ensure a positive learning experience. Teachers and parents alike can download as many as needed to ensure the student gets plenty of practice no matter what the subject is.

Nutritional Worksheets for Preschoolers
Using our healthy foods worksheet, you can begin teaching your students to identify the healthy foods from the not so healthy foods using common things that the child probably eats. The following foods are featured on this worksheet: strawberries, bananas, hotdogs, peppers, burgers, carrots, broccoli, apples, pretzels, sausage, ice cream, corn, salad, pizza and lime. Although there may be some ambiguity on certain foods like corn if the child's parents eat a low carb diet, children should be encouraged to choose vegetables (even starchy ones) over foods like pizza and burgers. The directions are simple: circle the foods that keep you healthy. To make this a more comprehensive lesson, after the worksheet is complete, you could talk to your students about the healthy nutrients in each of the healthy foods and discuss what makes the unhealthy foods bad choices. Don't get too technical with preschool students or kindergartners, but older students can understand and appreciate concepts like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more. They also need to know about things like saturated fats, cholesterol and calories. Although this sheet is listed under the preschool section, students of all ages can benefit from this information!

### Justin Bieber Pray Lyrics for Pop Music Fans

Have you ever felt the power of a good song? Music through the ages has moved us to awe, to tears and to happiness. It has helped us cope with our grief and celebrate our most joyous moments. Life without music would be rather dull indeed, so FreePrintableOnline.com does its part in spreading music through sheet music and through lyric sheets. In the printable music category you'll find both sheet music (which is lyrics) and piano music (sheet music for the piano). Whether you like to bang out some tunes on the piano or belt out your favorite tunes in the car or shower, you'll find something you like among the music sheets.

Sheet Music for Your Favorite Lyrics
Are you familiar with these artists: Celine Dion, Justin Bieber, Lionel Ritchie, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake and Carly Rae Jepson? FreePrintableOnline.com has all these artists and more in their lyrics and free printable sheet music category. These aren't any old lyrics that you can find on other sites on the web. These are beautifully printed on a background picture of the artist who sings the song. They're great for passing along to friends or printing out and framing if one of these songs happens to inspire you. Preteens and teens love them!

Become a Belieber
Justin Bieber, despite his recent controversy, is still one of the most popular singers in the United States today. He is a Canadian by birth and is only 19 years old at the time of this writing. He first entered the scene at a much younger age. When he was only 12, he began singing in local competitions, and his mother uploaded some of his videos to YouTube. Here, he covered songs by famous artists like Usher, Chris Brown and others. In 2007, he signed under Island Def Jam records with Usher. His first album, My World, debuted in 2009 with great reception. During 2010, he appeared on television shows, magazine covers and opened for big acts like Taylor Swift. He made his movie debut in 2011 playing himself, of course! This movie tells the story of how he went from a kid in Canada to sold out stadiums around the world.

Pray
The site's Justin Bieber Pray lyrics are one of the most popular downloads, and for good reason: Pray was one of Bieber's biggest hits! It's actually a really inspirational tune about how the power of prayer can make a difference. The video to the song shows Bieber visiting sick children in the hospital and shows a number of other people that we should all pray about. If you'd like to be able to sing along with the video correctly, print out the lyrics or save them to your computer. You'll be singing the song like a pro in no time!
