Homeschool We Do – Most teachers’ view of entrepreneurship can be summed up in a few short sentences. If it’s difficult, make it impossible. If it’s complex, pretend it’s not.  And if you think you understand it, you probably don’t. Learn entrepreneurship the right way – experience it.

Valentine’s Day Even and Odd Number Sorting Printable

Here’s a fun printable to use with your kids to practice even and odd numbers as well as number sequencing.

Valentine's Day Evan and Odd Number Sorting Printable

 

Use the Valentine’s Day Even and Odd Number Sort game to have your child work on sequencing numbers from 1 to 30 or have your child sort the numbers by odd or even. If 30 numbers are too many, then choose a handful and record them on the mat {great handwriting practice as well}. 

Print the pages on cardstock and laminate them to make them sturdy {this is how we laminate more inexpensively}. Then let your child sort the numbers by even and odd while spread out on the floor, or pick a handful of the numbers and record them on the last page in the even or odd basket using a Vis-à-vis markers or dry erase markers.
