My oldest were thrilled with this set of pattern block puzzles that I shared recently (get the entire ebook of puzzles here!) and so I decided to make a simpler version for my younger kiddos. These cut and paste logic puzzles are simpler (they are only 3x3 squares instead of 4x4) but still a fun way to get kids using their logical reasoning skills, and learning shapes and colors at the same time! Materials Needed for the Cut and Paste Logic Keep Reading...

## Number Sentence Roll and Write: Multiplication and Division

Last year when I was focusing on number bonds and fact families for addition and subtraction, I created this super simple, but really fun activity. Seriously, there's just something about rolling the giant foam dice that my kids love! Today I'm sharing a similar activity for multiplication and division! It's hard to believe that I'm already introducing my daughter to multiplication and division, but she has shown that she gets it, and enjoys the Keep Reading...

## Telling Time with The Grouchy Ladybug! {FREE!}

Last year about this time, my kids and I had a set of caterpillars that we watched form cocoons and transform into beautiful butterflies. During the process, we spent time learning about their life cycle, reading butterfly books and doing butterfly-themed math. This year, I plan to have a ladybug themed week, read more great books, and do lots of fun ladybug math! One book that is always a favorite is The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. This can Keep Reading...

## Equation Search: Addition and Subtraction Practice

As my daughter gets close to finishing her first grade math curriculum, I'm trying to find fun and creative ways to review and practice math skills. Whether it's taking it outside with sidewalk chalk, or playing a game, I like to make it challenging, yet fun. So last week I created an "addition and subtraction equation search" to help her review and practice addition and subtraction with one and two digit numbers. This is great for kids in Keep Reading...

## May Math Problem of the Day Calendar

Can you believe that May is just around the corner? Are you gearing up for the end of school? Public schools here are finished pretty early, so they are counting down the days! We are not quite there yet, however, so we're going to plow ahead to the end of May and celebrate the end of our year in early June. But it's all good! Because I have a brand new May math problem of the day calendar to squeeze in some daily math challenges! Similar to my Keep Reading...

## Earth Day Color a Fraction Pack! {FREE}

Did you know that Earth Day is coming up on April 22? I'm usually pretty oblivious to things like this, and then come up with holiday-themed ideas too late (yeah, that fantastic post on learning math with Peeps...missed it. Seriously, why was Easter so early this year?). But when I saw this cute Earth clip art, I knew I could put together a fun, Earth Day fraction math pack! These activities build on one another, offering a variety of options to Keep Reading...

## Pattern Block Puzzles {FREE}

I always have tons of ideas for activities and games to make math fun for my kids, but let's be honest. Sometimes I'm more excited about the activity than they are, and it turns into a huge flop. Recently, however, I created what I thought was a super simple resource to work on shapes and logic, and was blown away by the response from my kids. To the point that they are begging me to make more! I would definitely call that a win, and today I'm Keep Reading...

## Investigating Exponent Properties {FREE Lesson!}

Many of the topics covered in Pre-Algebra or Algebra are taught as "rules," "properties," or "formulas" to be memorized. And while it is definitely helpful to have certain properties or formulas memorized, I think it is much more important that these Algebra facts be taught in a way that is logical and makes sense, rather than simply telling students "This is true. Now use it correctly." If you let students explore and discover math truths on Keep Reading...

## April Math Problem of the Day Calendar {FREE}

Are you ready for April showers? I don't mind the rain because it makes everything so green and beautiful and helps rid the air of pollen and all that other stuff that make my allergies go crazy! ;) I'm also excited about April because I have a brand new set of Math Problem of the Day Calendars to share! I'll be honest, March was so crazy and busy, I almost forgot to make these! But today they're ready, just in time to print by April 1st! This is Keep Reading...

## Roll and Write: Number Practice Pages {FREE}

I'm a fairly new homeschool mom. We will soon be wrapping up our second year of homeschooling. While in some ways I feel like I've learned a lot and have grown in my confidence, there are other things that remind me I still have a lot to learn. (Maybe I'll have it all figured out by the time the fourth child starts school, haha!) The biggest thing I have failed to do well is focus on handwriting with my kindergartener and first grader. Because Keep Reading...
