• ### Activity 1 / Domino +4 Worksheet

Before starting this worksheet, you might want to ask your kids if they know what a domino is. Explain to them what dominoes are, and then move on to solving the equations in this printable printout. There are four simple equations here, and all of them show another number being added to the number 4. To the right are different options. Help your kids solve the equations and then circle the number that shows the sum of the domino.

• ### Activity 2 / Flags and Fours Worksheet

Every country has its own national flag which symbolizes the nation’s identity. This simple worksheet combines teaching math with educating your children on some country’s flags. First, ask your kids if they can identify some country’s flags if they see them. Now, look at this printout with them. Ask them to identify each flag, and then underline the number sentence that matches the picture in the colorful printout.

• ### Activity 3 / Solar Math Worksheet

Do your students know what the solar system is? If they don’t, you can quickly give them a brief lesson on the solar system and what it comprises of with this colorful worksheet. Math is a subject that your kindergartners will have to perfect, whether they like it or not. And unfortunately, most times they don’t like it. It is up to you to make their learning as fun as possible. Help your students draw a line to all the ways to show 4+3 in the printout.
