Thanks for stopping by my blog, Math, Kids and Chaos.
I’m a Brit living in Canada, a qualified elementary school teacher, math specialist and a mom to two young children.
As you may have guessed from the name, this website is focused on math for kids. It’s a place where parents, caregivers or teachers can find ideas for activities to help their children learn math. I love to make math fun and hands-on and you’ll often find me doing math activities and games with my kids at home. You can read about many of these on this blog.
You’ll also find posts about math resources I have created, some of which can be purchased in my store and some of which are available to download for free from this website in my Free Printables Library.
Math has always been my area of interest for me – both as a math-loving child growing up and a math-happy elementary school teacher. I completed a Masters in Math Education in 2011 and have taught both in the UK and in Canada.
With all my activities and resources, I’m aware that when you’ve got kids in your life, you most likely don’t have a lot of time on your hands. I therefore try to make my activities simple and low prep.
If you’re visiting my blog for the first time, why not start by taking a look at some of my most popular posts:
- Preschool number puzzles for numbers 1 to 10 (freebie!)
- 9 awesome math picture books for kids
- What is a multiplication chart? (complete with free printable charts!)
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
