Welcome to this weeks number bonds worksheets. This week’s free math worksheets are focused on the number seven. Learning the number bonds to 7, and writing the number seven both in words and the number are weaved throughout the worksheets.
My daughter was watching me create some of the worksheets this week and she begged me to print her out the rainbow page. I know I’m on the right track when she’s begging me to hurry up. I take a lot of cues from her on what she would find fun to do. One thing I know I have to include one day is something that involves fairies, sparkles, and pink. I guess whichever week I do that I will have to make an additional boy version as well.
If you don’t already have the letter tiles from previous lessons, you can download them again here. They’re needed so your child can choose the correct letters that spell SEVEN to glue on the first page.
Mental Math Option
We covered quite a bit last week. I would still let them repeat and practice what they learned last week. Frequent repetition for short periods at a time is ideal.
Number bonds of 7 Card Game
Name: 7 Bonds
Cards: All the Aces, 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, 5’s, 6’s, 7’s and Jokers of a card deck. We need 4 wild cards, so get 2 jokers from another deck or use the 2 extra junk cards that usually come with many card decks. A total of 32 cards.
Card Value’s: An Ace is 1, wild cards are zero, and 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 will be their own value. Suits are of no importance in this game.
Deal: For a 2 person game, deal each person 7 cards. The remaining cards will go face down.
How To Play: This game is very similar to GO FISH. You want to pair two cards whose sum is equal to 7. So if your child has a 4, but no 3, they should ask “Do you have a 3?” If you do, you give it to them, if not say GO FISH and your child will need to pick a card. Whether or not the card requested was received, before ending their turn, they have one chance to put down one pair of cards that equals to 7. To put a pair of cards down, one must say the math equation they are putting down, for example: “I am putting down a 4 and a 3, because 4 plus 3 equals 7.” The game is over when either player runs out of cards in their hand.
Winner is: The person with the most pairs wins. If there’s a tie, the person who ran out of cards wins.
I hope your child is enjoying learning math. Next week we’ll be jumping into the number 8.
