*UPDATE 9-8-11: Updated the link. Should work again! Enjoy!
I must be thinking about school. All the school supplies are up in the stores, and I have to reign myself in from buying hoards of things. I don't even have a child going to school. . . but new crayons, new markers, new pens and pads of paper and cool organizing things. I love them. I guess that must have inspired my freebie for today. Click here for one inch math circles-numbers and math symbols. Here are some fun ideas for using them:
*Don't worry about the math symbols and use them to teach a toddler to count
*don't cut them out-leave as is and use 4 different colored buttons to do math equations together (aka put a button on 3, a button on 2, a button on + and then ask your child to put a button on what they equal (5))
*Cut them out and use for math quizzing
*print on adhesive backed paper and use as stickers for crafting, or math
*Make them into magnets for the fridge
*Use them in a calendar-for the months (I didn't do 31 numbers for days)
I'd love to hear what else you might use them for-let me know!
A note: I used a 1.25" circle punch to cut out the circles, hence all the white space around the outside. A 1" circle punch would probably look a little better.
