I first learned about CurrClick a couple of years ago from other homeschool bloggers. Then, I was able to meet some of the folks who work behind the scenes with CurrClick at a conference. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been able to find several great resources through CurrClick’s vendors. We’ve used seasonal printables, preschool packets, freebies, and more.
Finding Special Needs Resources on CurrClick
CurrClick offers downloadable files, lapbooks, classes, videos, and more. CurrClick also runs regular promotions and many vendors offer quality freebies to supplement your homeschool activities. I’m constantly surprised by the affordable prices on CurrClick, too.
One thing I love about CurrClick’s search feature is the filter function. I’m able to narrow my search to age groups or particular needs, both of which are helpful for our family. I found these resources by looking at “preschool” and “Christmas” or “preschool” and “special needs.” Within special needs, there are several subcategories, like “fine motor considerations,” “speech,” and more. Here are just a few of the activities we’ve tried or recently downloaded for our preschooler with special needs (and his typical-developing sister).
12 Days of Christmas, Copywork, Activity Book, and Sheet Music – This packet offers copywork, preschool/early elementary learning activities, faith-based information, and actual sheet music of the 12 Days of Christmas song.
Christmas Sprit: Coloring Pages and Activities (a freebie!) – My preschoolers are going to love this packet! We’re using this one from now until Christmas. It offers coloring sheets, dot-to-dots, word searches, and sight word activities. Themed activities often motivate my son to practice handwriting skills. And, right now, it’s a freebie!
Seasonal and Topical Resources
Five Senses Lapbook – I’ve had this on my CurrClick wish list for a while. It’s a full unit download (114 pages) about the five senses with activities that can be modified for various special needs.
Autumn Leaves Lapbook – This lapbook turns leaves exploration in a hands-on learning experience even when reviewing information/facts.
And God Saw that It was Good – This particular download was created for a child with special needs, so it includes a multisensory approach with activities that can be modified for other needs.
Printable Packs that focus on a variety of fine motor skills
I particularly like printable packs that offer a variety of activities for fine motor skills (scissor, handwriting, crafts, etc.), reading, reading comprehension, spelling, and more. CurrClick is full of resources like these! Here are just a couple we’ve used or recently purchased.
African Safari Junior Printable Pack – Animals are always fun, and this printable pack offers information plus hands-on, fine motor practice.
Winter Junior Printable Pack – This pack has multiple kinds of activities, including matching, literacy, math, puzzles, sequencing, cutting practice and more.
All About Me student-created book – We’ve used this book with our preschoolers, both typical-developing and special needs. It’s a great one for self-awareness and fine motor practice.
