The Learning Train Rolls on with Free WorksheetsAfter a long day at school, followed by homework, there’s a good chance your child is going to want to turn off the learning faucet. We understand that, but we also understand that the more kids practice, the quicker they’ll achieve their full educational potential. So we designed dozens free worksheets and printables that will keep the learning ball rolling, but in a fun, informal way. Math, reading, writing, history, civics, science, the arts—all the subjects that are taught in the classroom can be found in our online portals, with many of the worksheets featuring professional illustrations that will keep kids of all ages focused on the task at hand. Want to further accelerate the learning? Break out a stopwatch and tap into your child’s competitive spirit by challenging him to complete an entire multiplication worksheet in less than a minute. Better yet, keep track of how long it takes him to complete in a fill-in-the-blank story page, then hand him another one and see if he can beat that time.
In kindergarten math, kids will be learning to count to at least 20, write numbers and recognize basic shapes. Kindergarten will also expose them to the concepts of more or less, and addition and subtraction. As you can see, it's a big year for math learning! You can support skill development with these supplemental learning activities:
- Have fun with dominoes! Take turns with your child picking up tiles. The person with the most dots on their tiles gets to keep it and the person with the biggest tile at the end wins.
- Play the game of UNO with your child, which provides multiple opportunities for reinforcing number sense.
- Draw a shape on a piece of paper and ask kids to draw the same shape, then talk about the name of the shape.
