## Fun Math Activities for Ages 2 1/2 to 3 1/2

Over the next few days, I’m going to focus on our math activities. I thought that before I share what my older kids are doing these days, I’d share some of the activities they did when they were younger.  This post highlights a few things I did with my kids for math in the 2 1/2-3 1/2 age range. Here are some activities I did with ED when she was 2...

## Preschool Math Activities (K4) – Montessori Math and More

It has been ages and ages since I’ve written about ED’s math activities.  A lot of ED’s math happens naturally over the course of the day — counting objects in a picture book, counting by 2s, 5s and 10s when we brush teeth and do dental floss, counting money together, looking at numbers at the store, in books, etc.  Numbers are a part of daily life and we take advantage...

## Pete the Cat Unit

Last week I asked ED what she wanted to learn about. “Kittens!” she declared. I was thinking I would have her make a kitten lapbook, but the more I looked around, the more resources I found for some books called, Pete the Cat. I hadn’t heard of them before, but they seemed to be all the rage among the early elementary teachers who offered many Pete-the-Cat themed worksheets free on...

## Free PreK or K Math Sheets

ED loves math time right now and is whipping through all the sheets she can get her hands on. I haven’t found any math books or workbooks that suits her needs, so I’ve been creating things for her. Here’s one I made for her last weekend. I printed it out and put it in her workbox for when she asks for math time. They include a phone, fall leaves, acorns,...

## 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...

## Sunny Side Up: Number Recognition Dice Game for 4-6 yr. olds

This is a game I’ve played with all of my kids as they’ve started working on double-digit number recognition.   *Make your own dice (5 total) with the numbers 1-5 and a sunny side. You can use wooden cubes (available at a craft store such as Michaels). *Each player gets their own 3×3 square card (available here). *Roll all 5 dice and make as many number combinations as possible. *The sunny...

## Preschool Math

We incorporate a lot of Montessori math into our preschooling days.  There are lots of great websites, but Living Montessori Now is a wonderful place to start as Deb has compiled ideas from all around the web. I also play lots of board games that require counting, we jump and play and sing about numbers. Here are some of the math activities we did a couple of weeks ago. I had this...
