Maths Printables

Maths Printables

All my maths activities are practical as I think this is a much more meaningful way to learn than worksheets. I do make maths printables, however, which I laminate so that the children can use them in a practical way to support their understanding. I’ve had numerous questions about some of those seen in photos on my blog, Facebook Page or on my Pinterest Boards. I’ve decided to share some of them with you here for you to use if you wish.

Please note that some of these printables are better enlarged on the photocopier before laminating. It depends what resources you wish to use them with! Also note that I am not suggesting these are professional quality resources, they are just things I made to use in my classroom. I am self-taught as far as creating these things go so I am sure there are lots of ways they can be improved! 😉

Highway Numbers

Have you seen these? They are not mine, but click here for the free printable from Making Learning Fun. I enlarged them & added a dot sticker before laminating them, to show where to start the number when writing it. I put a little arrow on the dot too.

    • Word of warning… you might need to go over the outlines with a black marker, depends how dark your printer/photocopier prints… x

  3. Thanks so much for sharing I can’t wait to use these! I was wondering where do you get the backdrops for your small world areas or do you make them yourself? They add so much to the feel of the play space and they are such a good size. Thank you for all you fabulous ideas.

  5. Really appreciate all your hard work in making these resources and for being so generous by sharing. I know they will have taken you a lot of time, but by sharing you have saved so many tired teachers a huge amount of time and brain power!! Finally something that we can print of that is made by a real teacher, has been road tested with children and actually works. Thank you, thank you, thank you :0)

  15. Can you tell me how you played the dice game?? sorry if this is a silly question.

    Reply
    • Hi Charmaine! It was a really simple game to support or reinforce number recognition. The children just threw a spotted dice & placed a glass pebble/button/counter on the corresponding numeral.
      Hope that helps! (“,)

  22. Hi Rachel,
    You have some amazing ideas! I have already printed out some of your maths resources and have created a wish list to share with my colleagues. May I ask where you purchased your waterproof water play aprons. The ones we have are not waterproof and obviously produce soggy clothes!! Many thanks. I will keep watching your site for ideas. 🙂

    Reply
    • Thank you!
      I’m afraid the water aprons were bought long before I joined the classroom, so I can’t be sure. I imagine somewhere like YPO or TTS (in the UK).

  25. Completely brilliant! Thank you
    Do you have anything for guided reading? Mainly activities for the children who are working independently – but still with a reading focus (reception children who aren’t currently reading, don’t you just love lesson observations !!!!).

    Reply
    • I’m so sorry, I don’t 🙁
      Good luck with your observation! x

  26. I love these photos. Can you tell me where you source your glass nuggets, plastic ice cubes buttons etc from? Also, the lovely wooden bowls?
    Many thanks

    Reply
    • I’ve collected bowls for years now. They mostly came from car boot sales, charity shops & eBay. I haven’t bought any glass pebbles in a long, long time. Try shops like B&M & Home Bargains (UK) or eBay/Amazon. Plastic ice cubes & buttons are readily available on eBay & Amazon:-)

  27. Hi, silly question, can you tell me what font you have used on all your maths printables and I am trying to replicate some numbers to go with one of your activities and want them to look the same!!

    • It’s from ‘Sassoon’ 🙂
