My kids love doing math when it is presented in a fun way. They especially love doing color by Numbers.
I have two coloring sheets for you today. The first is just color by color. The second is color by addition fact. Be sure to click on the link below the image for the printable version!

Big Brother has been struggling to remember his multiplication facts so I let him make this “cheat sheet” of multiples. It is Star Wars themed … therefore a win.
I had him put together the sheet himself. He cut flaps on the main sheet and then glued just the side where the characters are to a plain white sheet. He then proceeded to fill in the various multiples.
Feel free to Print out a copy of Star Wars Multiples for yourself! Click on the link BELOW the image for the printable version.

I’m curious. What are your tricks of the trade for teaching multiplication? What games, songs, methods do you use? Comment below and let me know!
Clip Art: Characters were Desinged by Dorky Prints. The light sabers were designed by Big Brother himself.
Sorry for the week long absence. I’m still here!
I’ve recently opened a shop on Teachers Pay Teachers. I mostly sell Clip Art, but every now and then I put printables in there as well.
I created a pack of TEN lego themed filed folder games to sell in the shop. You can find it here.
Today’s FREEBIE is one of the games offered in the pack. It is a matching game geared for preschool. The game includes a cover sheet, two papers for gluing into the file folder and the appropriate pieces for the game. I highly recommend laminating or covering with contact paper to extend the life of the game.

Big Brother is so bright. He always has been. He, however, does not like math! He can do quite a bit of problem solving, but the basic facts trip him up. We are primarily working on Multiplication this year (Math U See Gamma). He is a little hung up on our current lessons, so I thought I’d take a break and do some “fun” math.
He loves doing color by math facts, secret codes, etc.
Through Easy Peasy, we are currently working our way through the Middle Ages. I put together this Math Pack to supplement his math lessons.
The pack includes:
Color by Number (multiplying by 5s)
Color by Number (multiplying by 3s)
Secret Code (double digit multiplying)
2 pages of Math Puzzles

My kids TOTALLY abandoned the lego challenges this month! I don’t blame them… we had a CRAZY month… lots of sickness, a two year old hospitalized with pneumonia, field trips, enrichment classes, Big Brother’s birthday. It was a busy time!!!
I thought I’d give them another chance with the challenges and put together a calendar for April.

I have recently been teaching a preschool “book club” class through our homeschool association. Each week, we read a different book and do activities accordingly.
Last week, we read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and Five Little Monkeys Play Hide and Seek.
I put together these little puppets for the kids to wear on their fingers while I read the book and we sang the song:

Simply fold the puppets in half and staple the sides, leaving the bottom open to make a finger puppet.
After we read the books and sang the song, the kids headed to the table to make their own scene of Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.

The children colored the monkeys then cut them out and glued them on and around the bed!
Happy Friday Everyone!!!
I love feedback. Did you use these printables? What did you think???
