To prepare these worksheets, all you’ve got to do is print the pages on printer paper and you’re all set!
You can make the reusable, if you’d like, by printing them on cardstock and laminating them for durability. Then, have kids complete the activities with a dry erase marker.
These pages can then be wiped clean and used over and over again.
