Multiplication and Division Bundle – 250+ pages of Worksheets, Games & Activities (15 pdfs and growing!)

## Free Daily Calendar Page (Ages 4-7)

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

My daughter borrowed several Pete the Cat books (affiliate link) 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!
