Mental Maths Worksheets

When a child practices mental maths

maths becomes quicker and simpler

= maths mastery!

My girls look at their maths charts (mini office A5 maths) too much, so I made some fun worksheets for practice. These worksheets reinforce adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with just a few minutes practice every day.

(Click the titles for your download.)

Maths Rockets ~ for adding/ subtracting or multiplying numbers on the side to equal the number in the roof (great for bonds)

Maths Butterflies ~ 5 sums for each butterfly, so good for quick reviews

Maths Corners ~ 4 sums for each number, also a quick worksheet

Maths In&Out ~ top row of random numbers “in” to work with a number and operation, and write the answer as “out”

Maths Caterpillars ~ each caterpillar has random numbers or operations, from simple to complex

Maths Amazing Squares ~ brilliant for bonds to 10 ~ all rows add to 10, up, down  or sideways!

Maths Flowers ~ 13 pages include adding,subtraction, multiplication and division.

Blank Mental Maths templates – 2 formats for you to customize

  1. MS Word doc download ~ Mental Maths Blank Templates
  2. Pdf download~  Mental Maths Blank Templates
  • I recommend that moms can print out about 10 blank templates and write in their own numbers that they want their children to practice.
  • Some moms place each page in plastic page protectors and use dry-wipe markers for quick and easy maths practice. They slip in a new page for the next practice.
  • Visit the original post on how to customize the template in MS Word on your computer.

With a little regular practice the number combinations or patterns start to “click”  ~ which is great for confidence and generates a positive maths attitude! (See the original post with extra suggestions and advice here.)

Maths Manipulatives:

Young learners need concrete, hand-on manipulatives. 

Just click on the title above the photo for your download. (Read the original post here.)

Maths Number Value Cards

This manipulative is invaluable!  I use it often when working when introducing numbers, adding or subtracting numbers.  It makes perfect sense when we speak about count the ones, then the tens, now the hundreds and so on.

Maths Number Value Cards cut out the cards and laminate.

Math Bonds of 10 puzzle

This is an excellent help! I make my youngster sit on the mat and quickly build the bonds puzzle, then come do some robots or amazing maths squares worksheets.

(Print this 4 page download on 4 different coloured card stock pages.  Assemble the correct ‘division’ window to the correct circle.  I printed these muddled so that your window colour will contrast with the wheel.)

  1. This site has given me renewed encouragement! Thank you for sharing. We find ourselves wondering how to afford what the kids need to learn well and what a blessing to then find this beautiful and very helpful site!

  2. Nadine – I visited for the Musical pages recommendation from a friend ( and fabulous homeschooling mom) and I found myself browsing and printing many pages – esp. your math wheels. THANK YOU for the free pages – I hope you know how helpful your generosity is to the kids in the world!

  4. Maths Number Value Cards only explained once, now she is flying
    year and half in school failed her amazing, many thanks

  5. i have just recently become familiar with the area of remedial teaching and i really appreciate the material that you have put up on the site. thank you very much.

  6. Wow! I came across your blog today and I am thankful that I did. I just have to make sure I bookmark the blog address so that I can actually find it later. I also subscribed via e-mail today. Thank you for sharing and making these resources FREE to others. The templates will be a tremendous help to us all. I already printed the blank rockets for use with my multiplication bead board. I was looking for blank printable multiplication fact booklets in sequential order and the blank rocket template will be a great alternative until I find what I am looking for later. I am so appreciative! Your hard work and dedication will bless many families and teachers.

  7. Love all of your advice… using it in the classroom and it is working! (I am referencing you on my lesson plans!) Thanks for all of your brilliant ideas!!! Thanks for making math FUN!

  8. Thank you so much for sharing all of these wonderful resources! I find it very interesting that on your mini A5 sheet, you have the Dutch number words next to the English. We spent several years living in the Netherlands so I was happy to recognize the number words in Nederlands! :-)

    • @Carol, how wonderful! Actually it is Afrikaans which is very similar to Dutch. South Africa was originally a Dutch colony where Afrikaans was developed.

  9. I love the wheel activities! I did have a small suggestion… I thought I would have been better to write the numbers that were inside of the wheel to face the outside of the wheel ( if that makes any sense) in other words… when I look at the wheel, it reads 4 / 32 instead of 32/4 because of the direction of the writing… I would like to create a wheel of my own to for a potential remedial center station. can you tell me how you printed the numbers inside of the circle? that way I could always change it up. Thank you! lamaldon@yahoo.com

  10. These are all wonderful, thank you for sharing your hard work!! First on my list is the Amazing Squares for extra addition practice, I think my son is going to love these.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
