Printable Math Pack to Reinforce Number Knowledge

Educators refer to the summer slump or Learning Loss as a regression of skills or knowledge during the summer months when kids aren’t in school. While learning loss can be real for kids at KneeBouncers, we’re all about learning through play becuase that’s how kids learn best!

Sitting down and doing worksheets or memorizing rote facts from flashcards may prevent some learning loss, but it’s not effective learning for young kids. Hands-on, interactive play is the best way to reinforce concepts and teach kids concrete ideas.

We love playing with purpose and have several interactive number games to teach numbers! Thanks to Carisa at 1+1+1=1, you can use an adorable printable math pack at home to reinforce number knowledge!

Here’s what’s included in the pack:

1. An interactive graphing activity based on our Kneebouncer game, Run Puppy, Run!

2. Two sets of super-versatile number cards. Use them for matching, numerical order, number identification, or play memory.

3. A challenging math maze game for older preschoolers working on number sequencing and number identification.

Other Ways to Play with the Puppy Math Pack

The Puppy Math pack from 1+1+1=1 has plenty of fun ways to play, as suggested on their site. But here are a few more ways you can play!

  • Print two sets and make a number match game.

  • Practice matching a quantity to a numeral using counting cubes or other small toys like cars or animals.

  • Use the cards to make patterns based on color or the puppy design on the card.

  • Hide numbers around the house and go on a number scavenger hunt.

  • Use number magnets and encourage your child to match the numbers on the cards to the same number magnet.

  • Practice greater than and less than using the cards.

Many thanks to Carisa for helping us develop these activities. Visit her site, 1+1+1=1, and download the math pack!

Kids are always exploring numbers and math, even without realizing it! Math involves spatial reasoning, shape recognition, less and more, big and small, and estimating time, distance, and quantity! Include math in your child’s daily play using mathematical words as part of your everyday speech!
