I just followed your link from the homeschool military message group. Loved that video! My 6yo DD LOVES playing with numbers (which is what we call math). I love that we homeschool so that we can nurture that love and she never runs into a "Mr. Johnson."Thanks for sharing :)
Thanks for stopping by, Tina. Playing with numbers has done amazing things for my kids, especially once they started getting serious about math. Can I suggest logic games, things like checkers, chess, etc? They really get your brain thinking in a mathy way. Also, I hope my younger kids never have a Mr. Johnson, either. My older son did, and it has been very hard to get him over that.
We are big fans of games around here. We love blockus, mancala, mastermind, and a bunch more. I wrote a post about it a while back, if your interested. http://mamaisemmasmama.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-we-learn-games.htmlFunny you should mention checkers. I asked my DD what she would like to do next week and she mentioned learning how to play checkers. Sounds good to me!
Please, be respectful. We're all friends here. We can disagree with respect.
