## Free Math Lapbook (PreK, K, 1st Grade)

At the end of the year last year, I had ED cut out and put together a math lapbook. We didn’t go over much of the material in it, but I wanted the lapbook mostly done for the beginning of this year. We had a few finishing touches. For example, we hadn’t attached the left and right hands — so ED glued those on the front of her lapbook. (We...

## Candy Land Addition Game (Free at the Moment)

Practically everyone has a Candy Land board around, right? I came across an adorable addition game to go along with the classic board game Candy Land.  If you’re looking to review some basic math facts with your child this summer you might want to print out the cards offered by Mel at Teachers Pay Teachers.  It’s free at the moment; I don’t know if it normally costs something to download...

## Patriotic Themed Math Games

We are only doing a light amount of school work at the moment, but I want to keep some of their math facts and skills fresh.  Here are some math games I made to play with the kids. I made them in a patriotic theme since next Thursday is Independence Day, the 4th of July. My youngest is practicing doubling (1+1, 2+2, etc.). My other daughter is practicing squares (3×3, 7×7,...

## Valentine’s Bump Game — Doubling (Addition)

Doubling Practice – Games and Worksheets I made a Valentine’s Day Bump Game for my daughter who is still learning her addition (doubling) facts.  We worked on these and from there we’ll move on doubling higher numbers 7 through 10s.  After that, we’ll work for a while on “what comes after” and then go on to problems like 6+7. This is a game to practice doubling (1+1, 2+2, etc.).  To...

## Christmas Addition with Pete the Cat and the Christmas Pup

ED is not really ready for complicated addition problems. She’ll just use the first of the six pages in this packet. 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. Click here to download Christmas...

## Skeleton Math Riddle (by division, multiplication, addition or numbers)

I made up a quick Halloween math riddle sheet for the kids’ math work this week.  Solve the division problem, find the answer above and write the letter into the box. I also made this for simple multiplication, addition and numbers since I have younger kids as well. If you celebrate Halloween and want to print this off for your kids feel free. Here’s the link: Skeleton Math Riddle (All...

## Free Math Games: The Great Pet Races

I made this selection of games to help DD practice her basic math facts again.  She’s rusty on the problems like 8+7 and 6+9.  Since she and ED really love their little pets, I drew some little critters to appeal to them! You can adjust any of these board games to suit your preschooler (by just identifying the numbers on the board) or your older child (by creating more complicated...

My daughter was standing right next to me when I made ED’s domino sheet (the ones I shared last week). She wanted her own math worksheets where she could create her own problems. Together, she and I designed simple addition and subtraction sheets. She rushed right over and put them in her math workbox!  They can be used with dice; DD used 12-sided and 20-sided dice. Download the free Addition-Subtraction...

## Domino Addition for PreK-K (Free Domino Sheet)

This week we’ve added in a bit of domino math to ED’s math time.  I know there are lots of domino math sheets out there including the domino mats and cards from mathwire.com, at Making Learning Fun (domino addition, subtraction or multiplication),  and a domino worksheet made by Erica over at Confessions of a Homeschooler.  I needed one that wouldn’t overwhelm ED, though.  I wanted just a few problems on the...

## Monster Math Tag

If you have a break in the weather where you are, you might want to play Monster Math.  It’s just a racing version of freeze tag that I play with my kids. I came up with the fancy name for this game years ago.   They beg for me to get out and chase them down!   I take index cards and write down math problems. For ED (age 4)...
