## Place Value Math and Favorite Math Activities for Ages 4-6

I have a ton of math activities and free resources to share with you in this post! We started working on Place Value when my kids were about 4. We came across some free Montessori materials and used them for years and years. I thought I would spend a little time highlighting these activities again because I know they’ve gotten a lot of hits through the years.  These activities are...

## PreK-K Math Activities (Make 5, Make 10)

I made a cute flower-themed math packet for kids just starting on basic addition through 10.  There are a couple different activities to practice working with the  5s and 10s Number Families. There are two worksheets for kids to supply the missing number for the 5 and 10 Number Families. My kids always loved games and would beg to play games like the one below over and over!  This is basically a...

## Montessori Subtraction Pages (with borrowing)

I made this set of Montessori-Style subtraction pages for ED to practice borrowing.  She started using these last week.  I know lots of people have downloaded our Montessori Style Addition pages and thought some of you might find these pages useful too!  They are free to download: Montessori Style Subtraction with Borrowing   Other Montessori Style Math Worksheets You Might Be Interested In: Free Montessori Style Addition Sheets (Without Regrouping)...

## Christmas Addition Worksheets with Pete the Cat

I made these pages a couple of years ago. They include basic addition practice and a blank sheet for domino math.  I’ll have her roll the die and fill in the blanks—and I’ll also use some dominoes and have her fill in the numbers. If you don’t have actual dominoes, you can print the domino set from Mathwire. They even have a add-on set for up to double-nines. I’m hoping to create some subtraction pages...

## Fall Skip Counting Pages for 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s (Free)

My daughter is working on skip counting. She enjoys doing these quick mazes and I thought I’d share them with you.  Some of them have characters on them, but I also included a few plain ones at the end so you can use them any time of the year. With these pages, you can go in any direction – up, down, left, right and diagonally. Fall Skip Counting Pages for...

## Minecraft Money Game: A Game For Counting Coins

ED has been working on coins this fall. She’s doing pretty well and I thought I’d combine her growing coin-counting abilities with her love of Minecraft. In fact, this past weekend she did her very first sewing project on her own using the sewing machine — the creeper which is in the photo below!   Just print out the printable below on cardstock and place a paper clip on top....

## Math Curriculum Options & Active, Engaging Math Activity Ideas

In this series, I thought I’d try to offer new homeschoolers a starting point for finding homeschool curriculums that works for your family. Today I’ll be talking about math. It’s sometimes tricky to find the curriculum that works well for you and your kids. It’s helpful to ask around (online and in your community) to see what will work for your child.  If you can go to a homeschool curriculum...

## Free Montessori Style Addition Pages — with Regrouping (Carrying)

We’re winding up our school year. My older two are doing the standardized testing that fulfill the homeschooling requirements of our state, but ED is still doing school this last week or so.  I thought I’d share the math sheets she’s working on. A number of years ago, I found a Montessori website that had addition and subtraction problems that corresponded with the colors used in some of the place...

## 4 Fun, Active Games for Practicing Math Facts

With the weather so beautiful, we’ve taken math outside. Don’t you love when the kids BEG and BEG for more math practice?!! So here are some of the games we’ve been playing outside… Math Sponge Toss: If it’s getting warm where you live, the kids might enjoy this activity.  We hung math problems up on the garage door with painters tape. The kids took turns trying to SPLAT their card. If...

## Free Montessori Style Addition Sheets (And Place Value Activities)

Earlier this year, ED decided she wanted a math workbook just like DD and LD’s books.  We had been playing a lot of games, but according to her, that wasn’t “real math” anymore!  I bought a Spectrum math workbook for her (grade 2). She worked her way through the basic addition problems. Before she goes on to tackle double digit addition and subtraction in that book, though, I wanted her...

## Coins, Coins, Coins! (Ages 4-6)

ED has been working on coins for math.  To be honest, sometimes things just don’t get accomplished unless I’ve taken some time before-hand to get things ready. Here are some activities I got together for her. I grabbed our coin bowl and made pre-made ziploc bags of coins for her to match.  There is one extra card for each packet. I placed five small ziploc bags with pre-counted amounts of coins...

## Addition and Subtraction with Pete the Cat (Free Worksheets)

My daughter borrowed several Pete the Cat books from the library last week.  She’s been reading them over and over, so I made her a couple of math practice pages with a Pete the Cat type theme! She quickly used up those pages and I went back and added in 5 more… So, there are 10 pages of addition and subtraction pages. The last couple pages have some skip counting...

## St. Patrick’s Day Number Words Activities (Free)

ED is working on number words this week.  These are some St. Patrick’s Day sheets I made for her. I thought I would share them with you. Just click on the link below: St Patricks Day Numeral and Number Words Activities There are four pages. The first sheet is a numeral-word matching page. The second is skip-counting page. The other two sheets are board games.  ED rolled a number and...

## St. Patrick’s Day Addition Fact Games (Free)

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up Monday, March 17th.  I’ve made a number of math activities to get into the spirit! Today I’m sharing some game boards that I made for my daughter to practice some of her addition facts. There are three different game boards. One to practice making 9 (4+5, 6+3), one for making 14 (10+4, 7+&) and one for making 15 (7+8, etc.). There’s also a blank...
