Go to the site www.worksheetfactory.com
and go to the downloads section. There are s/w titles there
that can be bought or downloaded for free.
Wordsearchfactory
is a free program that allows you to input your own word lists
and it places them horizontally, vertically and diagonally
in a word search the size of your choice  you can click on
the answer icon and you can see what way the words are in
the search and if you are not happy you can ask the computer
to rescramble them. You can printout the worksheet and the
answer sheet. The headers and footers of these sheets can
be customised.
The other free title at this site is Mathematics Worksheet
Factory Lite. This package will create addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division worksheets on numbers up to 100.
The number of questions on the sheet are at your discretion
and if you don't like the sums that it provides you can ask
it to recreate the sheet or you can double click on a number
in the question and change it. (You can focus on just a particular
times tables or have a complete mixture.) Again you can printout
the worksheet and the answer sheet. (One teacher asked could
you get it to printout the answers and not one of the numbers
in the question. The answer is no. However you could copy
the answer sheet and then tipex out one of the numbers in
the question to have the same effect.) The other feature of
this package is that you can printout a 10/12 times multiplication
grid, by double clicking on any of the numbers in the grid
they disappear and so the child have to fill in the blank
boxes. (This maths package is the lite version and there is
a deluxe version I have not looked at it it may do percentages
etc.)
