Counting by 2’s Practice Sheet – Kindergarten Prep – FREE PRINTABLE

Published April 18, 2015 by MisMandie

So Em and I have been working on her counting by 2’s and she was doing well but would get stuck after 20…. She just wasn’t seeing the pattern.  So I made up a chart to help her see the way the numbers change.  It was a hit she had that great AhHa! moment.  So I took it a step further and made this sheet to see if she could fill in the blanks and, just like that, she got it all filled in and started to recite them all the way to 100.  First while looking at the page then again with it flipped over.

We spent weeks trying orally to explain it to no avail.  Now, after only about 30 min seeing it in this format she has it down.

I couldn’t be more proud of my big girl! ❤

Give it a try with your little ones and comment here to let me know if not helps!!

Next up 5’s!!

Counting By 2’s – PreK Learning Practice Sheet


Customized and Changeable Puzzle Boards

Published February 29, 2012 by MisMandie

What You Will Need:

  • Pictures (cut from books of printed from internet – The ones I used are attached to this post)
  • 2 Sheets of Card Stock
  • Velcro
  • Scissors
  • Laminater  (optional – If you do not have one you can sandwich the photos between clear packing tape)

What to do:

Select your pictures and cut them out then cut into sections.  You will see that I chose photos of varying shapes and reinforced the shape with a thick black outline to add to the educational factor.

Laminate each piece so that there is enough room in between to form a solid seal and then trim leaving a small border around the edges.   Then stack both sheets of card stock neatly and laminate them together for added stability – This will be the board.

Cut your Velcro into small pieces and attach to the backs of each piece then to the board making sure they line up they way you want them to. (it is best to do a dry run layout first so that you can move and adjust if you need to)

If you want to you can outline each individual puzzle’s assembled outline to help your little one figure it out.

When they get bored with these pictures you can simply remove the pieces and make it brand new again.  The adhesive should come right off the laminated board so all you will need to do is print and laminate the photos you want to use.

What you will need:

  • 1 Full Sheet of Felt for backdrop
  • Additional Felt For body and legs
  • Fabric Paint
  • Fabric Glue
  • Google eyes (optional)
  • Buttons/Gems for establishments (Optional)

You can either use fabric paint, sew on Buttons, or (as I did) Fabric Glue and gems to add the counting items on each leg.  Then using Fabric Paint Write on the numbers above where each leg should go.

Easter Egg Matching Game

Published February 24, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will Need:

  • 6 Plastic Easter Eggs
  • 1 Empty Egg Carton (I cut the top off mine)
  • 2 each of 3 different items to fill
Ideas for Fillers:
  • Scrap book embellishments (What I used)
  • Different colored pompoms
  • Candies
  • Hair ties
  • Small toys
  • Fruit Loops
  • Stickers
  • Temporary Tattoos
In other words, Just about anything that will fit in the eggs!  Just make sure you they are different enough that your kiddo knows the difference and that there are 2 of each kind.  Switch them out for a fun suprise every so often to keep it interesting for your little one!
As they improve their skills try getting more eggs and and a 2 1/2 dozen pack of eggs (they sell them at Sam’s club) If you don’t use enough eggs to go through them fast enough, maybe share with relatives and or friends 🙂

I won’t bore you with step by step instructions on this one since it is as obvious as it looks 🙂  Have Fun!

Please beware of choking hazards depending on the age and maturity of your child! 

(and since I STILL have tons of these eggs and the little trinkets left expect to see more ways to use them soon!)

Felt Board – Number Practice (Part 1)

Published February 13, 2012 by MisMandie

Cut simple shapes out of felt for each number. I chose to match the colors as my daughter is still in the early stages of learning them, but if you want more of a challenge you can mix the colors of shapes and numbers all up so it won’t be so obvious.

Felt sticks to felt, so that is really all you have to do!

Easter Egg Counting Game

Very Simple Game to make for your little ones in just minuets! You can fill your eggs with any objects that will interest your kids and fit in the eggs. (Mine is obsessed with princesses right now!) I found these in the scrapbook section of the dollar store a while back for a party (we were decorating foam crowns) and had a bunch leftover!  You can change them out too to keep it interesting for them.
