New for Jack this year is daily written math practice. By the end of last year he was doing written math practice about twice a week. And he hated it. A lot. Last year I randomly made up practice sheets based on what we were currently working on. This year I'm using the free year of arithmitic facts practice sheets found at the Making Math Meaningful site. I reviewed that wonderful book previously here. The sheets are designed as a year long progression and the download has a great introduction to using them.Every couple of days I copy a few more days into Jack's math practice book. Who doesn't love a composition notebook?
Because they start off so easy, he is feeling very successful in math so far this year, and more willing to tackle difficult problems. I'm loving exploring all the different ways to understand math that I was never taught. Who knew math could be so much fun? Off to update that math notebook now!
