This is the second part in my talk about math curriculums. In the previous post, not only did I list some of the better known homeschool math curriculums, but I shared 15+ ideas for making math engaging and fun! (Math Curriculums and Active Engaging Math Activities)
Today I wanted to share some of the materials I’ve made for the kids. I’ve found that the kids really enjoy when I make sheets specifically for them. They’ll always ask me, “Did you draw this? Did you make this for me?” After I’ve done all that work, I’m happy to share them with the wider world. If you click the links below that will take you to the post where and the link to google docs to download them free. I thought I’d pull out some of the more popular math worksheets I’ve made.
This list is not complete… you can always scan through the Math Category or Freebies Category to see what else is available.
Montessori Math Addition and Subtraction Pages: I’ve made a whole series of Montessori style addition and subtraction pages.

Minecraft Math Worksheets:
A “Bump” Game with Pets: Capture the Pets
I made up cards such as 7+7 or 8+5. Each player took turns taking a card and covering the answer with a token. If another player had a token on that pet, she could “bump” him off. Once a player has 2 tokens on a pet, it’s hers to keep.
13s, 14s, 15s Board Games
For practicing addition such as 6+8, 5+9, etc.

Sometimes the materials I make aren’t themed… like the ones below:
That’s about it for today. I hope you found something useful… and stay tuned for some new math sheets in the months to come!

Why learn the number families? Knowing their fact families helps a lot as kids start to work on their subtraction facts. They know that 6+7=13, so 13-7 becomes easy! These games help kids learn their math facts in a fun way! My kids always begged to play “just one more game!”
Multiplication Packets: Find out more by clicking on the link below:
Learning the Multiplication Facts: As my daughter moved into learning her multiplication facts I looked around for the kind of multiplication practice that would help her. The math book she was using went through the math facts a bit too quickly for her. She needed quite a bit of repetition and wanted bright, colorful worksheets. I wound up making my own sets of practice pages and games. She loved that! Be sure to check out our Multiplication Bundle here: Learning the Multiplication Tables 2s thru 9s. Scroll down to see the links to these individual packets below.
Each of the Multiplication Math Packets I made for ED had a different theme. And as you will see, the packets progressed from fairly easy, straight-forward pages in the first packet to mixed multiplication and division problems by the time she was working on her 8s.
What order did she learn her math facts? 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 6s and 7s (because those skip counting songs were easy for her!), 4s, 9s, 8s.
Many of these are all on sale individually or you can buy the bundle of all these materials. ~Liesl
