Hands On Math Activities

 

 

So, my printer went out… I had to buy a new one. BLECK!!! My old printer was a Kodak and the ink lasted forever and was SO CHEAP. SIGH… When I went to buy a new one they were out of Kodaks. WAH!!!! I bought an HP instead. Now, the quality of the HP is AWESOME but the ink is higher and doesn’t last as long. I say all of that to tell you this: I will be MAKING a lot of homeschooling stuff instead of PRINTING a lot of homeschooling stuff. When we first started homeschooling (7 years ago!!!) that was a normal occurrence. I made TONS of stuff. Looks like we are going back to that and I LOVE IT!! I had forgotten how much fun it was to make my own games and such.

Anyway, here are 2 new math games. Colin is LOVING them. SHEW!!!!!

 

Hands on Math 034

 

This is his favorite. He loves rolling the dice and inserting the numbers.

 

Hands on Math 015

 

I made different symbol squares so that even Cailey can use the game. It’s so versatile! You can compare the numbers, add them, subtract them, multiply or divide them! 🙂

 

Hands on Math 010

 

To store the game pieces I just stapled a paper bag to the “game board”.  Zipper bags would probably be better but I am out, of course.

 

 

Hands on Math 005

 

Skip counting by 5s game! I traced Colin’s hands on to construction paper and cut them out. Then I just wrote the numbers on the palms. He’s not as fond of this game, probably because dice are not involved, but he loves that he is playing with HIS hands. LOL

 

Hands on Words 007

 

The other day when I posted some sight word / word family activities I also posted some links to other hands on ideas. This was one of them! This is my version of Creative Family Fun ‘s Word Family Sort.

I added a blank circle for those sight words that Colin is learning that don’t fit into a family or ones that he isn’t actually learning all of yet.

 

I also added a couple of new things to the blog. Over on the right side you will see a new listing, My Pages. Until the title you will find links to my Homeschooling Units and Ideas page and my All Tutorials page. Now you (and I) can find what I have on each topic without having to use the search box.

 

 

HAVE FUN HOMESCHOOLING!!!!

Easy Hands On Number Activities


Easy Number Activities

I bought a bag of foam pieces from the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago. We’ve been having some fun crafting with them, too bad someone threw those crafts away!!! ARGH!!!! Anyway, I was trying to think of some ways to improve Colin’s grasp of numbers higher than 20. So, I dug out those foam pieces and started writing the numbers 0-50 on them.

Easy Number Activities 004

Then I had him put them in order. Easy peasy!!! Cheap and fun, too!

Easy Number Activities 008

Then I had an idea of another activity he could do with those pieces! Count out beans!! Now he can see how many the different numbers represent as well as their placement in line.

Not bad for $1!

I have found that there are a lot of things out there for numbers 1-10 and a few for 1-20 but not many for any of the higher numbers. I will be trying to think of some more ideas! Wish me luck! 😉
