There are two ways to create your own workbooks.
If you'd like to include different types of content in your workbook, such as worksheets, activities, science fair projects, and articles, start by creating a collection. Click on the orange Collect It! button to add an item to your collection. Custom workbooks can contain up to 40 items, so keep this in mind while you add to your collection. Once you've finished adding items, go to Collections in your profile and click on the collection you'd like to make into a workbook. From this page, you can rearrange the order of the items in your collection, or edit the collection's title or description. Once you're ready to download it, click on Download this Collection at the top of the page. In the window that opens, click Create Booklet. Your workbook may take a few moments to assemble. Once it's ready, click View Booklet to open the workbook PDF in your browser. You can print the workbook now, or save it to your computer. If you close the window without saving a copy of the workbook to your computer, you'll need to go through the download process again in order to access it again.
If you'd like to create a workbook from worksheets only, you can use the pin feature to create a set of worksheets to download as a workbook. When you see a worksheet you'd like to add to your set, move your cursor over the worksheet image and click on the pin icon that appears in the lower right corner. Once you're finished pinning, click on the gray bar at the top of the page showing the worksheets you've pinned, and the bar will expand. Click on Download All to download your pinned worksheets as a workbook.
PLUS members can download workbooks from any grade and subject.
To purchase a Printable Workbook, visit our Printable Workbooks page and click "Buy Now" under the workbook you'd like to purchase.
The material of each Printable Workbook available on Education.com was handpicked, curated and approved by a team of elementary school teachers.
To view your workbook download history, please visit the Purchases page of your Education.com profile.
You can download any workbook you've purchased as many times as you'd like. However, if you've downloaded workbooks using your Education.com PLUS subscription, you'll only have access to those workbooks while your subscription is active. If you have an expired subscription, you'll still be able to view your complete workbook download history, but you won't be able to download those workbooks.
Parents can print out as many copies of a workbook as they like for their own kids, but may not share the workbook with anyone else. Similarly, teachers can print out as many copies as they need for their own students, but may not share the workbook with other teachers or individuals.
While you can't preview the full contents of a workbook before purchasing it, you can view 4 sample workbook pages, as well as the workbook's description, skills practiced, and specifications (including its size and number of pages). To view details about any workbook, click on the workbook's title or thumbnail.
If you are purchasing workbooks individually, you will only be able to buy them one at a time. However, with an Education.com PLUS subscription, you can download workbooks with the click of a button.
Our workbooks are only offered in full color, though some of them contain worksheets that are black and white. However, most printers can be set to print in grayscale. You can usually select grayscale or black and white printing from the Preferences or Properties window of the print dialog box, depending on the application you're using.
Try downloading your workbook again by clicking on the Download button. If this doesn't work, contact us at support AT education DOT com. In your email, please include your Education.com member name and the name of the workbook you were in the process of downloading.
You might have an outdated version of Adobe Reader. Go here to get the latest version. Once you've updated Adobe Reader, try opening your workbook again.
If updating Adobe Reader doesn't work, try downloading the workbook again.
If you are still experiencing problems, contact us at support AT education DOT com. In your email, please provide your Education.com member name and as many details about the problem you're experiencing as you can.
