More Math Addition Activities -- 2

A post from 9/10/09 9:21AM

Math balance from Right Start Math -- my kids love
to play with this
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."

  1. I love all of your math ideas, my daughter needs some help with her math facts, these are great! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I absolutely love the link idea. I had some of those at one point - probably long gone now - and I never figured out anything interesting to do with them. I think I will buy some more.
