How to Avoid the Summer Slide: Dry Erase Math Worksheets for Pre-K, Kindergarten and Up
Does summer school vacation feel like it's coming fast and furiously? It does around here. We have a couple of school performances on the calendar, a couple of school picnics and a plan to craft some fun end of year teacher gifts. In spite of the busy-ness, I'm looking forward to planning some fun for summer and am working out a few details on how to best avoid the 'summer slide'. Here's my answer on how to avoid the summer slide with my dry erase math worksheets for pre-k, kindergarten and up.
I had fun designing these math worksheets in a way that were engaging, not overwhelming and versatile. To do this I opened up a Word document and created a Table. I then used the subtraction sign as my base so that the kids could either create addition or subtraction equations to work out. I did the same for multiplication and division by using the forward slash ( / ) symbol that can be used as division as in a fraction or as multiplication when a quick backslash ( \ ) is added.
I printed out my math worksheets, then hit my favorite neighborhood haunt - FedEx/Kinkos - to laminate my math worksheets. I gave each of the kids a dry erase pen and voila, they're already having fun working out problems on their dry erase math worksheets.
