I am so excited for the Fourth of July this year. We are finally going to brave some fireworks because we can actually see them from our house! I haven’t gone to fireworks in years.
So, in preparation, I decided we needed to start celebrating with some fun math pages (and of course the Silly Sentences). These pages feature some of the Target mini erasers from last year. But no worries if you didn’t grab them last year. At the end of the sets there is a page where you can print out your own matching erasers! Even better – print them on magnet paper and use them as magnets!

Fourth of July Math Printables
This set includes almost 20 different pages but I’m only going to highlight a few here. There are pages for addition/subtraction, multiplication, graphing, estimation, and more.
Skip Counting! This pages features a 99 chart (it’s basically a 100 chart, but I wanted to include 0) designed especially for skip counting. You can practice skip counting by any number. Simply cover up those numbers with the erasers.
In this one we skip counted by 3s. Once all the numbers are covered, go back through and read out the missing numbers.
I love doing this with 100 charts because it’s fun to see the different patterns that are made with the different numbers.
Beginning Multiplication for Fourth of July
When kids are first learning multiplication it’s usually done by adding equal groups. The idea of this printable is to separate the erasers into equal groups and turn that into a multiplication problem.
There are 8 spaces for groups, so this page can be used for multiplication up to the 8 facts. Add equal amounts of erasers to as many circles as you want. You can add 6 erasers to 3 circles. That problem would be 6×3=18. And so on.
Fourth of July Ordering Numbers
This page is the next step up from comparing two numbers. It’s like comparing 5 numbers at once! Determine which one is the lowest number, write it on the first line, and cover that star with an eraser. Then move on to the next lowest number.
All of the numbers in this set are 2 digits.
