Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!

    Fun Grammar Review from The Crafty Classroom

    {disclaimer – affiliate links are used}

    Some of my favorites printables come from The Crafty Classroom! We have been using WRITE Interactive Grammar Notebook for awhile and absolutely LOVE it! I got it for my daughter who is finishing up 2nd grade this year. This front cover says “Kindergarten” but it is definitely appropriate for K-2 and maybe even some 3rd graders who enjoy this type of thing. It is a fun and creative way to review grammar skills, which is what she needed!

    How We Print All of the Homeschool Curriculum

    Print it all with HP Instant Ink

    {Note- this is not a sponsored post, I bought our printer on Amazon and pay full price for Instant Ink. My Instant Ink referral link is used in this post. I have also used affiliate links for the products linked in this post}

    Homeschoolers print a lot. We use a lot of ink. For our family, HP Instant Ink has been an incredible solution for our printing needs! We have had this specific printer for over 2 years now and it is still going strong!  It’s an HP Deskjet 8610, it is here on Amazon. I am using HP’s Instant Ink service and love it!

    One of the BEST things about Instant Ink – each page counts as 1 page no matter how much ink you use! If you are printing full color pages this makes the subscription a HUGE savings! I wish I had this service back when I was printing loads of Tot School and Preschool printables!

    HP Instant Ink -18


    There are many HP printers that are compatible with Instant Ink, here’s the list from their site. Be sure to double check yourself on their site before purchasing. I copied this list in May 2017.

    • HP ENVY 4500 Series
    • HP ENVY 5530 Series
    • HP ENVY 5660 Series
    • HP ENVY 7640 Series
    • HP Officejet 4630 Series
    • HP Officejet 5740 Series
    • HP Officejet 8040 Series with Neat®
    • HP Officejet Pro 6830 Series
    • HP Officejet Pro 8610 Series
    • HP Officejet Pro 8620 Series
    • HP Officejet Pro 8630 Series

    The basics of Instant Ink…

    You sign up and they send you a starter pack.  When you use my referral link we BOTH get a free month of Instant Ink!!! You wait to install the starter pack until your initial ink runs out.  Your Instant Ink subscription does not begin until you install the first instant ink cartridge.

    The printer connects wirelessly to HP and automatically tracks your pages printed and how much ink you have left.

    New ink is sent to you before you run out, you don’t even have to think about it! The ink sent to you is “free” as it is included in your monthly cost.


    Monthly Plan Options…

    I am now on the $9.99/month plan for 300 pages. This also means I can roll over up to 300 pages to the next month if I don’t use them. I can go over 300 pages if needed an pay $1 over 25 pages. Below you can see the different monthly options.



    If you are in need of a new printer, I highly recommend getting an HP printer that is compatible with their Instant Ink subscription service.
