Math Activities Can Be Simple and Fun!
If you're looking for simple ways to boost math fun for kids, number of the day printable worksheets are awesome.
When it comes to math, you may feel like you need to do more or frequently change things up. But, kids often prefer consistency and routine, especially when it comes to learning and practicing new concepts.
When my boys were younger, I tried a bunch of different activities and resources for boosting math confidence. Flash cards, memory games, and drills all helped. But, one particular activity was the biggest hit - number of the day!
I've learned and applied so many amazing tips and ideas to our homeschool from my mom, a retired Kindergarten teacher. One day, I chatting to her about our homeschool morning time and brainstorming ways to include more math activities. She suggested doing number of the day - and my boys loved it!
We enjoyed number of the day activities as part of our 100 Days of School Fun. We'd use the number of what day of homeschool we were on (for example, 73) and use that as a base for our math fun.
My boys or I would write our number of the day activities on a small chalkboard or whiteboard. I always thought it would be awesome to have printable versions for each boy to complete and include samples in their homeschool portfolio. Finally, I got around to making (and sharing) these number of the day printable worksheets!

Creative Ways to Boost the Learning Fun with These Math Activities
There are SO many ways that you can enjoy these free number of the day worksheets with your kids.
Prior to using, I recommend familiarizing yourself with each activity. Then, explain each activity to your kids. You can brainstorm different ways to complete each part.
For younger children, I suggest working as a group. You can complete the number of the day printable as an example for them to copy.
As your kids get older, these worksheets can be independently completed. (Of course, you'll want to consider individual ability level.)
For any type of printable activity, I love adding color writing tools, like erasable pens, pencils, and markers. If you prefer your students to use in regular pencil, they can still add color by customizing the robots and adding doodles.
Oh, and encourage your kids to use the back of the worksheet to add their own math practice and challenges! It's also an excellent way to get extra practice with number identification, number line, and number bonds.
Instead of printing these worksheets again and again, you can use laminate or place in a dry erase pocket sleeve. If you go with this option, I recommend printing on white cardstock for extra durability.
Chat with your kids about their work. Do they have questions about a particular section or number? Ask them to explain how they got their answer. This type of vocal processing is a fantastic way to reinforce math concepts!
