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.

  1. Thank you for sharing these :) I just needed to make the number outlines as I have the others (thanks to your fab photos) so you have saved me a weekend job!

    Thank you!

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

  2. Hi Rachel, I love following you , Tishylishy, Blamehound and Geoff on Pinterest and Twitter! You are so creative and your ideas are really inspirational. They always help me with my planning! I always wonder where you find the glass nuggets, beads and wooden counters like the ladybirds? Would you mind sharing your secrect suppliers? Thank you!

    • Thank you! You need to follow @mac_phillips too, she is brilliant at coming up with fab ideas! And also the lovely @clairewiththere 😀
      You can get glass nuggets from lots of different sellers on eBay.
      I will send you an email to the address you provided here (“,)

  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.

  4. Thank you very much for sharing! These have given me some extra ideas for independent tasks and I am going to adapt some of them for my Year 1s.

  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)

  6. Rachel,

    Do you have the printables that you show pictured with your glass nugget fine motor sorting photos? The spiral, dot pate, etc.
    Thanks, Nita Coker

    • Hi Nita, I will probably share that printable when I revisit the activity with my new class. Keep your eye on the blog 😉

  7. Hi Rachel
    Thank you sooooooo much! I’m on a mission to add more numbers to our environment and you’ve just saved me loads of time by making these available. You are very creative and so kind to share your ideas.
    Thank you

  8. Some great ideas!! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

  9. un grand merci d’une institutrice française qui parle très mal l’anglais.
    thank you!

  10. Thank you very much for sharing your work and ideas with us.
    It is a great help for my class of Montessori in Djibouti.

  11. Wow thanks so much for all your hard work and sharing the printables with everyone- you are VERY kind!! Our maths area will be transformed (once they are all cut out and laminated) I also like that they can be used with lots of open-ended resources. You are a SUPERSTAR xxxx

  12. Thank you for sharing. What wonderful resources!

  13. Thank you for making and sharing such wonderful creative hands on maths resources. Looking forward to using them. :)

  14. Thank you so much for sharing, you are very generous and kind.
    May you get back all that you give.
    Warm Regards

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

    • 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! (“,)

  16. Merci beaucoup pour tous ces documents qui vont aider des petits élèves français !

  17. Your ideas are so inspiring, thank you so much for sharing, as a NQT I really appreciate it!

    • Aww, you are very welcome, Louise!
      Thanks for the lovely comment :-)

      • I see from your posts you are based in Greater Manchester? I am too, I would love to visit your setting if that would be possible?
        Please could you email me if you think it is something we could arrange.
        thank you
        Louise x
