But no matter sorting 100 cubes (minus the 20 or so we’ve misplaced, ahem) is a big job – so my Two sorted about 7 colors before he’d had enough. This looked so fun my Four wanted a turn afterward.See more on themeasuredmomMy Two (going on three) is now counting past ten quite well and starting to count objects up to 5 without difficulty. The next step? Learning to recognize numbers. So I took one of our cool blank dice and labeled the sides with some small numbers to start (1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3). When he rolled it I helped him identify the number. Then we added that number of cubes to his tower.See more on themeasuredmomThis idea from Prekinders was perfect for my Two. I printed some of these more/less/same cards. Then I placed down two cards at a time – of two different colors. My Two placed cubes on the squares as we counted together. Then we built the towers to see which was taller. Older kids would be able to tell you which amount was more without building the towers; building the towers and comparing them would be a way to check their answer.See more on themeasuredmomWe have found a lot of fun ways to make graphs. This is another one to add to our list. I simply gave my son the printable, crayons, and a set of cubes in eight colors. He used some crayons to color a square at the bottom of each column to represent the colors. Then he graphed them and compared the towers.

My Four started simple with ABAB and moved into the tougher patterns. We began the pattern by placing cubes on the colored squares. Then we named the pattern (yellow, blue, blue, yellow, blue, blue) and he continued it. A year ago patterns made no sense to him at all, and now they’re a breeze. Yay!Your child might be able to label the pattern (ABCD or AABB, for example), but..See more on themeasuredmomI printed these free addition flash cards from 3 Dinosaurs and cut them apart. When I set out a card, my Four modeled the addition fact using two different colors of unifix cubes. Then he was allowed to write the answer on a stack of sticky notes using a permanent marker (the marker was the big attraction) definitely aren’t working on math facts yet (not even close!), but this was a great introduction to the concept of addition. Plus a nice opportunity to practice writing those numbers. (I..See more on themeasuredmomI was truly surprised (okay, shocked) at how well my Four did with this. It tells me I need to up my game with him and do some more thoughtful math activities. I printed this simple “ways to make 6” printable from The Linton Academy. Then I showed him how we could use 3 green cubes and 3 yellow cubes to make a sum of 6. He wrote down the two numbers in the blanks to show the fact “3+3.” Then we kept rearranging the cubes to make new facts. He actually did most of it on his own. (When did this..See more on themeasuredmomI created this simple printable to work on a variety of skills with my Four. We took turns rolling a die and building onto our towers until one of us had a total of 20 cubes. You can get Race to 10, 20, or 30 by visiting this post.See more on themeasuredmomMy Four was excited to practice writing his numbers using permanent markers on post-it notes (two things he does not usually get to use). After making sure the post-it notes were on a newspaper as he wrote (so as not to mark up our table!) he had fun writing his numbers up to 20. For this activity, we used just numbers 1-10. I made the towers, he counted them, and put them in their proper spots. You could also have your child make the towers. We were inspired by this block activity from Fruga..See more on themeasuredmomAfter their day at kindergarten and second grade, I gave a copy of this printable to each of my two oldest. They enjoyed making estimates and checking their guesses by making unifix cube towers.

They found objects that weighed the same, less, or more than a certain amount of cubes and recording them on the worksheet.

He was sure it had be eleven, and no matter what I said he wasn’t convinced. My attempts to teach him the basics of multiplication were lost on him, so I pulled this activity out a few days later make it a game, I pulled out two dice and a set of six construction paper squares. The first die he rolled told us how many squares to..See more on themeasuredmom1. Model subtraction and regrouping like they did at Beyond Traditional Math 2.
