One of my daughter's favorite math worksheets was one I created called "Dice Math." She thought she was playing a game, when in fact she was getting some great interactive operational practice.
As a kindergartner, she started out with addition then moved to subtraction, but this worksheet can also be used for multiplication and simple division. Math is a lot more tolerable if it's fun.
First, download the Dice Math PDF, located at the bottom of this post. You will need dice for this. They can be simple six-sided dice or fancy 20-sided dice. To have the most options, you can purchase a bag of multiple-sided dice which is great fun. These can also be used for board games that have spinner wheels that don't stay on track. My daughter enjoyed rolling big foam dice which was a little easier on the ears and floor.
Choose two dice and roll them. In the first column, Dice 1, write the number of a die you deem is Dice 1. Choose the operation in the second operation for the worksheet, and write the number of the second die in the third column. The answer goes in the last column.
Math doesn't have to be dreadfully hard or painful! Making it fun enables a love for learning and math.
