although the almonds were strictly for snacking they work really well for counting also!
Our family really likes using Math-U-See
. Maybe it's just that we like math but I think this material has something to do with it.
The end of last month and the beginning of this have been a bit wacky with home renovations, sickness and something else that I can't remember right now. So I
fell off the wagon of morning reading, math and handwriting practice. Early this week, while I was battling an ear infection (a good reason to drop "school" if there ever was one) my 9 year old said she missed doing math. Oops. Looks like I can't drop the ball so easily.
Point is, we like math at our house. But for some reason we don't like this Skip Counting CD
. I bought it thinking it would help our kids learn to skip count - you know 4, 8, 12, 16, 20...set to music. Cool concept but we're just not into it.
Maybe you'd like it?
We've only listened to it a couple times in the car (captive audience takes on a whole new meaning) but it just didn't stick. So I'm giving it away. It's as good as new and maybe your family will like it. If not, pass it on, sell it on e-bay, whatever.
To enter this giveaway leave a comment before Tuesday night, February 16th when I'll randomly choose a winner.
Product disclaimer: The lyrics for the the songs are explicitly Bible-based. Think Zaccheus set to music with math, the guy was a tax collector afterall! We're Christians so this is no problem for us but I thought I'd just put it out there. The songs are kind of sunday-schoolish for lack of a better word.
I'd also to thank Lori at Freely Educate
