Grids for kids – my Kindergartener ate this up!
This grid for kids is a lot like Battleship with stickers – and it was the perfect math activity for my Kindergartener to begin taking a closer look at row and column coordinates.
Kindergarten math activities should be hands-on
I know I can help my Kindergartener in math by keeping learning fun.
We like to call these ideas Breakfast Invitations which are simple learning games that begin with play. We did these a lot when he was a preschooler, and now we sneak them in when we can.

I can work with my Kindergartener as we have fun
My goal is to connect with my six-year-old over a fun math idea that will spark conversation and make connections to what he is learning in school.
I am NOT forcing him to sit quietly and complete a task.
Grids for kids do the opposite!
This math activity is a casual learning game that allows us to connect.
Important tips for grids!
- Encourage your child to begin with the horizontal axis first.
- My six-year-old begins with plotting the numbers.
- Next, he looks for the letter to plot on his grid.
