K4 Kindergarten Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets

beginningmathsubt_promo.jpg

Good morning homeschoolers! I have a fun new addition to my K4 Kindergarten curriculum for you today! I had a request to add in some subtraction worksheets, so that’s exactly what I did! Introducing the Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets! We cut out each card, then had our Teeny Tot use paper clips to select the correct answer based on the items on each card.   --> Download the Kindergarten Beginning Math Subtraction Worksheets here! <-- These are very basic subtraction problems to help introduce the concept. If your child is having a hard time with the subtraction process, use a manipulative to help them understand what is happening. I would choose anything that interests them such as goldfish, cheerios, matchbox cars, small animals, beads, etc. Have them count how many objects they see to start. Then have them take away the number of items subtracted on the card, then recount to see what they have left over. You can laminate these and students circle the … [Read more...]

Kindergarten Missing Numbers Worksheets

missingnumbers_promo2.jpg

I’ve had a lot of requests to add higher numbers to my K4 Preschool Curriculum missing numbers worksheets. So I’ve updated them to include 1-100 missing numbers worksheets to help add some challenge and fun into your day! The number activities are great for number recognition, counting skills, and logical thinking.   For those of you who don’t know, I also have missing letter activities that help work on alphabetical order along with uppercase and lowercase letter recognition. Simply read the set of numbers (or letters) to your student and then have them either say then write the missing number (or letter) in the blank spot. The downloads also include printable letter and number tiles if they prefer to glue the tiles into place rather than writing in the missing items. The Missing Letters activities include capital and lowercase A-Z worksheets. The Missing Numbers activities now include numbers 1-100. --> Click below links to download 1-100 Missing Numbers … [Read more...]

Math U See Video Review

mathuseee_box1.jpg

Hi everyone! I have an exciting post for you all today! I’m going to start a new series of curriculum reviews on my YouTube channel.  I think that sometimes its just nicer to see curriculum in person (a.k.a. video) rather than trying to figure out what it looks like online, or via photographs. I thought it might be helpful to show you how we use it, prepare it, store it, set it up, and things like that. I’ll also include what materials I recommend that you purchase when using the curriculum, and what supplies I think are optional. Remember these are just my opinions, and what I’ve found work best for us. Of course you’ll want to do what’s best for your family. I want to start off by saying that these are not sponsored posts, I really just wanted to try and give you all a better look at the curriculum that we use. So let’s get started! Today’s video review is all about our well loved Math U See curriculum. As most of you know, I’ve used Math-U-See for several years now. … [Read more...]

Math-U-See Giveaway!

066web.jpg

Hi everyone! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Math-U-See! And thanks to their awesome staff, they’ve offered a great giveaway for my readers today. One thing I love about Math-U-See is that they teach to mastery, and that means your student might not learn a certain skill right off the bat. They build on concepts so that the math skills actually make sense for your student. Students also use the MUS visual manipulatives to help further understand whatever skill they are working at the time. However to my surprise the students do not become depending on the manipulatives to solve problems. They’re simply hands on training tools to use until a concept is mastered. This is what the Math-U-See looks like in our workboxes. I pull out their worksheet each day and keep the video DVD and our little plastic storage container.     I also have a couple fun organization ideas for all of those blocks for you! For our large set of blocks I purchased the Small Craft … [Read more...]
