I am thinking this may be our 6th/7th grade math next year. Any one tried it? Love it? Hate it? I need some opinions. THANKS!
This was a fun puzzle I made. In Singapore Math they have a puzzle like this... and Cyan did so well at it, that I thought I would make her some more to solidify her skills. She thinks they're great!
A turning point for math with her was last week. She was sent to clean her room and came out with a pile of books. Annoyed that she had been reading books instead of cleaning, I took the books from her. She said "Don't mess them up! I put them in order." And when I looked at the books, there were all the Magic Tree House books, 17 volumes, books #1 - #32... all placed in numeric order. So I helped her with her bookshelf, and we had a great time talking about 'order'. So today, I introduced Alphabetical Order... and she got it nearly right away. Up to 5 words at a time, and up to three letters into the word (although she was really confused when some words only had two letters and she had to go off that. I had to mark on her paper where the "no letter here" spot was (before A).)
All in all, it has been a great homeschool day. Both little are sleeping now, and I am going to get some much needed down time (off the computer) before I run errands tonight. (I get to take a meal to a family with a new baby. You know what that means? I get to snuggle a new baby!)
Have a great day blogfriends!
