Candy Land Addition Game (Free at the Moment) 1

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,...

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...

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...

Addition and Subtraction Sheets

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 6

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)...

Addition Games

Since LD has had time on the computer playing multiplication math games, DD wanted some games of her own. Here are some of the addition and subtraction games I found for her. Funschool Alien Attack — LD was really keen to play this and the levels got progressively more challenging (13+13 or 16+17) Another game from Funschool was the Math Popper. I have the addition version pictured, but they also have...

Valentine’s Day Math Games: Division and Subtraction Cards and other games

Valentine’s Day Division Cards I made a Valentine’s Day set of division cards to use with LD over the next week or so. We use these cards to play a game called Fast Track — an idea we got from Peggy Kaye’s Games for Math. To make the board you need a large piece of butcher paper or poster board. There are three win spaces, three start spaces and various...

Free Christmas Math Games 8

Free Christmas Math Games

Find the missing addend activity: Do you ever get attitude when you do certain subjects with your kids?? For some reason, LD has been reluctant to do math from one of his books.  Playing games has turned that attitude around (for the time being) and he’s really done some great math work in the past couple of weeks. (We start with games like our beloved Speed! Multiplication Game, the division...
