Hello, mamas! Today I have a fun freebie that was born out of necessity (as most of my creations are!) I've been working on adding and subtracting with my four-year-old, who is a very tactile learner, and needed something that would bring together the concepts of written numbers and physical quantities. After sketching out a few rough versions with copy paper and a Crayola marker, I decided it'd be easier to just whip up a template in Photoshop!
The dotted line text on these worksheets encourages number formation practice as your child is counting and adding, so they really are a multi-functional tool! The boxes can be counted as they are printed or you can have your child color them in, but my favorite method is to use objects like counting animals to make it more fun and to encourage the tactile learner.
For added longevity, laminate each page or slip them into sheet protectors and use dry-erase markers!
Thanks for stopping by! Download all five practice pages for free below, and feel free to share with your friends or in your classroom :).
I made color-coded flash cards for us to use at home as sight word reading practice, but when we write something our brains process that information in a special way that encourages retention. (See an article about the importance of writing in memory retention from PBS here!) So, I decided to whip up these sight word writing practice sheets!
Included in the download links below are five separate pages of the most common sight words, with seven words on each page (35 total sight words.) To use these as a practice tool, have your child first trace the word on the left, then trace again in the middle using the guided lines, then write the word on his or her own in the guided lines on the right. Work left to right, one word at a time.
I hope you find these printables useful! Whether you're homeschooling or just providing supplementary learning at home, getting involved in your child's education is the most important thing you can do to encourage his or her academic success, so kudos to you! And happy learning to your littles :).
What could possibly be cuter than a tiny animal in a teacup?! I just love these little guys! Perfect for a nursery, playroom or little girl's bedroom :). As always, please don't crop out my signature, as this is my original artwork. Click the link to download, then print away!
These little robot drawings came to me when I was looking for cute robot art for the playroom, but couldn't find any in the style I wanted. So I just drew it myself!
Feel free to download, print and hang wherever you'd like! I personally love the Bot Dog for a baby boy's nursery :).
My only request is that you don't crop out my signature. This is my personal artwork, after all :).
Bot love forever!!
