First grade math activities are a great way of making numbers easy and fun - just like they should be!
One way of making sure your child stays on top of 1st Grade maths is to keep maths real and base it on your child's favorite activities.
The idea behind all successful First Grade maths is to build maths into all your child's favorite activities.
So what's the drawing of the dog doing here?
The answer is that dogs were my daughter Catherine's favorite animal at 1st Grade in homeschool. So we used them for homeschooling fun math for kids!
Here are lots of suggestions for fun math activities.
Homeschool Maths - With Dogs!
Homeschooling Maths with Models
First Grade is the age when your child really begins to get to grips with making models. There is so much maths to be learnt - numbers, stages, logic - that kids' homeschool models might as well be a maths teacher's heaven.
You can get some great free lego printables from Living Montessori Now.com.
Homeschooling Maths through the Kitchen
There are lots more maths activities for 1st Grade in our page on homeschool kindergarten math. You can see homeschooling board, card and dice games, including UNO and Monopoly, as well as playing shop with a cash till. They can all be enjoyed by your child well into 1st grade.
