One of the (many) thrills of homeschooling is that my kidlets love to learn. Mister really enjoys math and often asks to work ahead or for extra worksheets to do. He definitely gets his love for math from his engineer daddy, because while his Mommy can DO math, she doesn’t LOVE it.
We use a lot of math manipulatives to keep math fun.

I went all the way through calculus because I was told I would need it for nursing school… they lied… I wasn’t a happy camper when I realized they had lied. Anyway, back to Mister and his love of math… after allowing him to work weeks ahead in his math curriculum and having printed a bajigazillijion (that is bajillion, gazillion, jillion, and zillion all added together, which is algebraic for A LOT) math worksheets for him.
I’ve decided to laminate this Math is Fun Printable Worksheet for him, so he can use it over and over and over again! It will save me time ***not to mention ink*** and will thrill him to no end.

Thanks for sharing this. I try to get my son to work on his math facts as often as possible. Laminating this is a great tip.
This is such a great idea! I can’t believe I never thought of laminating a sheet for my daughter to use. Think of all the trees we could have saved!
I like science and psychology. I loved teaching science and can’t wait until I have kids of my own to homeschool.
I will have to print these out for my 1st grader. Thanks!

This looks like a great way to learn math. I homeschooled my daughter and math was always a struggle!
Thanks for the worksheet. Printing the sheets for Isa ~ she has hit a road bump in math. These will perfect to help her improve her math solving skills
I used to hate math when I was in school but my son loves it too!
Debbie Denny says
Great idea to laminate. Awesome!
I’ll have to print that out!

what a great concept, this would definitely help my son and his addition!
I definitely pinned this one for later. I have no idea when I’m going to need this but I might. I plan on homeschooling my kids so I’ll experiment with a lot of helpful things to help them learn 🙂
I would definitely have gotten SO much use out of this when working with the kids over the summer to keep their math skills fresh.
You know, all of the pretty colors on the sheet will probably make math a lot more enjoyable for those who don’t love it, too. 🙂

That is a great worksheet. My son loves math and is doing advanced high school math in Jr. High. This would be great for my 9yr old.

Oh this will come in handy, thanks for sharing!
