## Telling Time: Games, Worksheets and More

When I shared the free skip-counting pages a little while back, I mentioned that ED has been working a lot on clocks.  I thought I’d share some of the clock-type activities we use in our homeschool. I made ED a packet of time sheets from the Teacher’s Corner:  Time Worksheet Generator.  You can create worksheets that suit your child’s needs. You can create worksheets to the hour, half-hour, quarter hour,...

## Math Mat Challenge Game

We have had the Math Mat Challenge (affiliate link)  for years now.  It is one of those games that go in and out of the cupboard.  For a family like ours — with three kids each two years apart, this game has had a long shelf life.  The kids love leaping and jumping on it and it has help up well. Since it has been too cold to go outside to do...

## Winter Themed Multiplication Pages

I made some winter-themed multiplication pages for my daughter.  They are similar the addition pages I shared a few days ago. There are eight pages. The first few pages only have multiplication problems up through the 4s and 5s. The later pages have problems all the way to the 8s and 9s (8×6, 9×9).  They are free to download: Free Winter Themed Multiplication Practice Worksheets We also have some free...

## What’s Happenin’ in Homeschool?

Tis the season to be flexible! Some days we get quite a bit done, other days… not so much.  I try to keep myself calm about that.  Yesterday, for example, all our friends had a snow day. Often time we do school anyway, but the appeal of sledding and playing outside with friends won over! Today, we were back to the normal homeschool schedule. Here are some of the things...

## Free Christmas Number Cards and Math Games

There are lots and lots of different cards games you can play during math time.  I made a set of six little cards (0-15) for my daughters this December.  They look like this: Ages 2-4: If you have a toddler or preschooler you can print out two sets of numbers, cut out one set and have your kids match the numbers on the other (uncut) sheet. You can also use...

Last fall (a year ago), LD did a unit on geometry. He needed some basic review of some of the things he learned — so I put together a small review pack for him.

You can download the free Geometry Review Packet here: Geometry Review Worksheets He used the Geometry, Grades 6 –...

## Math Should Never Be Boring! More Math Brain-Teasers (Free Printable)

Yesterday, I mentioned that we’ve added a new portion to our math day. For much of the fall, the kids were simply doing math problems from their math book and they were complaining that math was B*O*R*I*N*G.  What? Oh NO!!  It was true, though, with everything else going on they were doing straight-forward stuff; you know fraction problems like this… or long division… or a good meaty problem like 5789...
