I came across this resource today. It is geared for kids 3-6 and is intended to be done orally. I think it will be perfect for some ideas for my K boy this coming year.
Arithmetic for Young Children by Horace Grant
I just wanted to share.BlessedMommyParticipant
Missceegee, that is a great find! I looked around and found a hardcover reprint that I am adding to my wish list. I prefer paper in hand books and that one looks like it is worth having as a teacher resource. Thank you!homeschooltravelerParticipant
Thanks for sharing this! I used it today with my 8 & 7 yr olds for some review. They both need to get a better handle on mental math, so starting from the beginning seems perfect. It went well, and I think that I will be using it throughout the summer to drill them. Thanks again!
Could you tell me your thoughts about MEP math? Have you ever considered using it instead of MUS (if you still use MUS)?
I’ve never looked at mep, I’m sorry.HollySParticipant
Thanks for sharing! This looks like a great book.RoslynParticipant
I know this is an old post i just saw it. I really like the looks of this book did any of you end up using it? What are your thoughts?ReganParticipant
I love this resource. After looking at it for about 20 minutes, I printed it off right then and there. I like that it is scripted. I feel like I need a bit of hand holding with Math. I had a horrible experience with Math all of my life. I felt constantly confused after the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division were covered. Because of this, it is so important that I give my kids a solid and clear introduction to Arithmetic. We also use Ray’s, Strayor Upton and Mathematics: An Instrument for Living Teaching. My fourth child with be starting Kindergarten in the upcoming school year so I am thrilled to find this. Thanks for sharing Missceegee. If you ladies have any other Math books like this for the older ages, please share it with me. 🙂AprilParticipant
Missceegee, This is totally off topic, but I have to say I LOVE your hair and I’m so happy you decided to go grey. You look stunning! Now to look at the math for my littles. ~April
I used the bulk of this book with ds7 last year in K with a variety of household counting things. It was perfect for us. This year for 1st, he’s doing Math Mammoth Light Blue Full Curriculum and is doing very well. He has a good strong number sense and that little book was an instrumental part of that.
April, thank you. I’ve been gray for a few years now and love it. I grew out my hair and like that, too. I tried on a dark brown wig for fun recently and it made me look old! The gray sparkles. ?Melanie32Participant
Agreeing that your hair looks great Missceegee! I hope mine looks half as good when I am all gray. 🙂
Thanks, Melanie. That’s sweet.
