Spring is one of my favorite seasons! It’s a time for renewal and rebirth, when the countryside where we live is dotted with lots of colorful flowers. It’s also a great time to celebrate the outdoors.
If spring fever is showing in your home or classroom, and you want to bring a little bit of the magic of springtime to your students, here is a free worksheet featuring math wheels in the form of spring flowers that you can use to have your children practice their math skills according to the Common Core State Standards for their grade level. The way I’ve designed these worksheets, you can use this single worksheet of math wheels to suit multiple grade levels:
Math wheels for first grade
First grade students can use the math wheels to practice addition, adding the number in the center of each flower to the numbers in each flower’s middle ring, and then writing their answers in the petals of the spring flowers.
Math wheels for second grade
Second grade students can use this as a subtraction activity. They should subtract the numbers in the middle rings of the math wheels from the numbers in the center of each flower.
Math wheels for third and fourth grade
Third and fourth grade students can use the math wheels to practice their skills with multiplication by multiplying the number in the center of each flower with the numbers in that flowers middle ring. They can also be used as a review for fifth grade students.
Addition, subtraction, and multiplication
Alternatively, you can practice a variety of different skills on each piece of paper, using one flower for addition, one flower for subtraction, and one flower for multiplication.
