A quilt square by Donna YoungAbout DonnaYoung.org

Donna Young started this web site in 1998. She was teaching her children at home, had bought a new internet capable computer, and decided to put her homeschool and household files online. Aside from a few donated files, Donna makes all the content for donnayoung.org using several programs such as drawing programs and word processors. Most of all, donnayoung.org is a place on the internet from where you may print Lesson Planners, Household Planners, Calendars, Handwriting Lessons, printable worksheets or papers for several subjects. DonnaYoung.org has grown into a large website over the years and it continues to grow. Meanwhile, Donna's children have graduated from home school and life goes on.

What's New

V Planner- It is Possible to Import your Lesson Plans to Google Calendar

V Planner and the Google Calendar ImportV Planner now includes Google Calendar Import Files. Requires the use of the Date System. See videos here: Google Calendar Import Add On

DonnaYoung.org is Organized into Several Sections

The sections are linked across the top of every page on my website. If you get lost here, just try backing up or going to the section where you think something should be. I'll admit that not everything is organized as well as it could be and I'm working on it!! The list below show the sections along with a few links on some of the topics.

Homeschool

Our BackyardWhat do I have to say about home school? My thoughts on home school are scattered all over donnayoung.org, not in just this section. If you spend enough time here, you will know what I think of homeschooling. This section, Homeschool, will have links to articles, game items, etc. It's not a big section and the links often go to other parts of donnayoung.org.
How to Make a Sticker Book
The Games Section - Blank printable board games, bingo games, blank cards, etcetera

Calendars | All Calendars Index

Printable Calendars and Printable School CalendarsThe section name is self explanatory and in it, you will find calendars for last year (in most cases), this year, and the next 3 years.
Printable School Calendars
Vertical Monthly Calendars
Horizontal Monthly Calendars
Blank Calendars
Note: Sometimes the calendar that you want will be in the Household section.

Home School Planner | Index

Donna Young's Homeschool PlannerI have many homeschool planners and you can print them for free. However, the Homeschool Planner section is about more than just printing planners; it is also about: How to Plan; Why Choose a Certain Planner Type; School Calendars; Grade Forms, XLS Files; High School Forms; and more. If you are a homeschooler, just go there.

Art | Index

Visual ArtI was one of those children who drew on walls. My art section is not nearly large enough and I really want to work on it, but there are so many parts to this website to work on. The main parts:

English | Index

EnglishThe English section is challenging to work on because it is the last place that I want to causally type up articles with poor grammar, iffy usage, and typing errors. I like the subject and when I get over my fear of making mistakes in this section, it ought to grow like crazy.

Handwriting

HandwritingThe Handwriting section is a popular landing page. I have printable ruled paper, handwriting lessons, animations, font links, & tips. Handwriting is a large section.

Science

science"Studying the sciences develops deductive and inductive reasoning skills and increases logical comprehension. It is also a hands-on approach to learning and practicing "scientific method," of which a fundamental and practiced knowledge is ..."

Apologia Science

Because I used this curriculum, I have free lesson plans for some of the books. For my children, I made vocabulary bookmarks as a study aid & those are online as well.

E.C.W. Physical Science
