I love using a skill that kids have already mastered to help teach them a completely new skill. These math activity sheets do exactly that! In Math My Name, your child can practice handwriting, number recognition, addition and subtraction, ten frames, tally marks and even drawing!
You and your little one will have the best time learning all sorts of new skills!

Prepping this fun math activity was quick and easy. I simply printed a copy of the math my number page (below) and grabbed a pencil and a basket of crayons.
Note: If you’ll be using the activity in a classroom, you’ll need to print one set for each child.
Math My Name Activity
My son was eager to get started, so he printed his name in the top box – making sure to write one letter in each square. Then, he followed the directions to finish the rest of the page.
When it was complete, he’d worked on:
- Appropriate letter sizing
- Number recognition
- Number writing
- Addition (1 More)
- Subtraction (1 Less)
- Marking ten frames
- Tally marks (This is a new one for Greyson!)
- Coloring and drawing
See?! I told you there was a lot packed into this fun little page!
Math Activity Extension Ideas
My son really enjoyed completing the first page, so I thought it would be fun to print off several more copies and assemble them into a workbook using my favorite tool of all time – my Fellows Binding Machine.
I have it all set and ready for our upcoming holiday festivities! To help keep him occupied and focus his excitement before we exchange gifts, he can walk around asking family members how to spell their names and complete a page for each one of them.
Then, using the analysis page included in the printable, he can write each person’s name in the left-hand column and graph the number of letters it contains. He’ll be able to easily see who has the longest and shortest names in the bunch – and it’s perfect for classrooms, too!
Bonus! Because I cannot leave well enough alone, I decided to make a second option for everyone. If you’d like to include this activity with your little ones this holiday season, I swapped out the apple tree (great anytime of the year) with a Christmas tree!
