My heart has been led to create homeschool resources that bring the family together, and I think you're going to LOVE what I have to share with you today!
I made a set of 18 math cards that will help bring math discussion to the dinner table (or the breakfast table, or your road trip...)
The thing is, when kids are sitting down individually doing their own personal math assignments, there is no family component to it. They aren't having conversations or bonding with others over math. I hope these cards, and my new Family Time Math resource, will help change that!
Print out these cards two-sided on cardstock, and pull a card depending on your child's age and math ability. There are three levels:
Early Years Math: This focuses mostly on vocabulary and number sense, and is intended for those little eager learners ages 3-5.
Elementary Math: These questions focus mostly on mental math, focusing on adding, subtracting and skip counting.
Upper Elementary Math: Intended for older children ages 8-11, this level of math cards features working with equal groups through multiplication and division, understanding place value, and determining a shape's characteristics.
There are six questions for each level. All of the cards have questions that can be used multiple times, not just once.
Family Time Math
Family Time Math is a 36-week curriculum made for children ages 3-11. This would be a perfect addition to your morning time, starting off with a little math warm-up before moving on to a complete curriculum.
Like the Family Time Math cards, this curriculum is broken up into three levels: Early Years, Elementary, and Upper Elementary. There are age-appropriate questions for each level, focusing mostly on mental math. The Early Years level includes a packet for little ones to work on since they might not be ready for mental math, but probably want to be included in family activities! Older children also have copybook entries to make in order to help develop concepts. Each month, there is a family math activity feature real-life math and math games.
I know that talking about math is one of the most important part of math education, but it's hard to do that when homeschooled students work on curricula separately. I pray that these resources solve that problem in your home and help you have conversations surrounding math topics.
