Everyday Learning 4 / Math Art and Activities

We started off the school year with a typical math textbook. We figured we’d try it. After all, repetition can be a way to learn (i.e. memorize) arithmatic. As the year has progressed we’ve been doing less workbook and more hands on math activities. The difference in our daughter’s interest, passion, and comprehensive in math since we started doing more projects and less workbook has been striking. (Not much of a surprise there!)

That means one fewer item on mama’s to-do list, thank you very much. So far each math activity has been a hit!
