public service printables

subtraction-pic

New to Artsyville: Public Service Printables! Now that both my kids are fully fledged elementary schoolers, I feel a doodly duty to help them along their educational paths. Thus, over time I'll be creating a collection of fact charts, review sheets and other stuff for them to pin on their walls and keep in their folders until the message sinks in. I will also post them here as free black & white printables for kids, parents, teachers, and anyone else who wants to go back to Artsyville Elementary School.

First on the list is subtraction, because that is one function that continues to bedevil our household. Addition, multiplication, and division are all coming and the puns and rhymes are equally bad. I'd like to point out that I now have a deep empathy for the staggering amount of rote memorization these poor children have to go through on their paths to mastery. I was so bored lettering all of these numbers that I fell asleep in my wine more than once. But let us not forget the message that if we give these little fellas their fair due, they will be our trusty pals all our livelong days.

I'll always announce when I have a new printable to post, and if you'd like to see them all in one spot, check out the Public Service Printable button on my right sidebar. Right now there is all of one -- just subtraction -- so you won't have to search too much ;)

The other bit of news for this fall is that I shall attempt to revive List it Tuesday! More on that in the next post!

These are awesome! Your doodles bring such creative zing to young academic pursuits. Wish I'd gone to Artsyville Elementary School. :)

What a GREAT idea! When you get to the multiplication tables I will be thrilled. I believe that many of our educational woes would be cured simply by kids learning their tables!!

These are great! But yes, it is a tedious road to knowledge sometimes! Lucky kids to have such a hardworking Mummy! And thanks for your doll comment!

Very cool way to get involved Mom!

That. Is. Awesome.

I did a much less creative version of one of these for days of the week (would love a CREATIVE one, hint hint) because Gracie kept asking me what day it was, if there was school tomorrow, if we were in the weekend, etc. I finally sat down and drew it out for her, so now she refers to it on the fridge. But it would be great to have one with days of the week and clock time (again, hint hint!)

For about ten years I have been starting and stopping a painted multiplication table - this makes me want to get back to work!
