Math balance from Right Start Math -- my kids love
to play with this http://www.activitiesforlearning.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=53
LD was SO excited when he saw it out today. "Hey
Mom, it checks my answers!" By the way, our dining
room table is always covered in stuff... sigh...
DD just loves doing math when LD has math time. She
literally comes running down the hall if LD and I are
going to do another game. Anyway, here are a couple of
pictures of her addition facts activity.
LD said "Oh wow," when he saw the links. He happily did
two or three problems and then announced that was
enough. Today when we were walking out the door to
head to soccer practice he said, "you know, I don't want
to do the linking addition again." No worries!
With workboxes I rarely get complaints from him about
doing the work --by that I mean nothing compared to PW,
(pre-workbox), days. I try to bring in a wider variety of
ways to learn things, so I value (and listen to) his input. You
know, it's like at dinner time "try a bite and maybe next
time you'll like it, that's all we ask."
