Place Value Video Post: Place Value Printables and Pirate Math Packet (Ages 4-6)

One of our most visited posts through the years has been our place value activities. I thought I would put together a video to share how we covered place value in our homeschool (we did these activities regularly when the kids were roughly 4 to 6 years old.  I also have a huge packet of materials (over 100 pages!) that include these hands-on math manipulatives as well as some other...

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...

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...

Kindergarten Math (addition games/place value activities)

It has been a while since I talked about what ED is doing for math.  Kindergarten math for ED has included a smorgasbord of materials.

Although we have a couple of math (homeschool) curriculums (Singapore Grade 1 and Saxon Grade 1) for whatever reason, neither of those really...

Explaining Long Division with Kitty Place Value Cards

DD is just now moving into long division–by that I mean we’ve done about a half-dozen problems together.  She really didn’t get it at all… so I wanted a more hands on way of showing her what was happening. Last week I made ED some kitty place value cards (haven’t gotten that post done!) for her to work on building numbers into the thousands, but it occurred to me that...

First Grade Math (addition/place value)

This post was one I wrote when my son was 6 years old. Now on to this entry… We continue to review/reinforce basic math addition facts. I made this little rocket/planet activity that LD and his friend have enjoyed. We also reviewed place value: We built the number 1783 (which separate into 1000, 700, 80 and 3 and stack on top of one another) Picture (below): I put a few 1000s together...
