Early Math Freebie

 Why am I sitting on my couch this beautiful Sunday morning instead of sitting in church with my hubby? I'm not feeling my best this morning. You see, I am training for a 5k race using the Couch to 5k Running Program. This program is supposed to get you off your couch and running a 5k in 9 weeks; I'm in week six. The program starts with interval training (alternating running and walking.)

Thursday morning it had me running 8 minutes without stopping, but Saturday it jumps to 2 miles or 20 minutes! I was a little nervous as I have never even run a mile without stopping (even when I was in high school sports.) Surprisingly I ran for a solid 20 minutes without keeling over, however that turned out to be only 1.8 miles. I was a little disappointed that I didn't complete the full 2 miles, so I decided to try again this morning. BIG MISTAKE. The program states not to run outside of the training schedule, but of course I knew better. (My body, however, did not.)  I got dizzy and light headed. I just felt week all over. I came home, and instead of getting ready for church I plopped down on the couch and started blogging.

So I made this apple seed numeral match game that is appropriate for kindergarten or some of your lower firsties. Feel free to use it if you can.
