Several years ago I learned at a booth at our homeschool convention that the best way for children to learn the math facts is to give them a limited number of flash cards WITH the ANSWERS showing on the front and let the child just read them. After a few times (over a few days or so) give the child a sheet with the math facts an no answers, to see how well he/she is doing in remembering the facts. Any that are incorrect should be immediately corrected. Then review the flash cards again with the answers. Add more facts as he/she masters the current facts.
You really should subscribe to their weekly email because this way you get a preview each Sunday of what will be available throughout the week and one extra link to another freebie. They are a tremendous resource.
Yesterday the link was for a dramatized audio of Anne of Green Gables (and is probably still available). There are game ideas for math, science, grammar, and more all in a variety of daily links. Check it out! It’s great! There’s even a link for Autumn Nature Study guide.
This is another wonderful resource for homeschooling freebies and printables and more. Lots of information here. Definitely worth looking into.
This has always been a great website for free printables and such. It is a huge resource for all kinds of charts, paper, templates, and such. Look here for handwriting paper, graph paper, planners, and such.
Do you need unit study ideas and printables or labpook ideas? Have a book that you’d like to use as jumping off point? They have a title index that you can search by book for ideas they have accumulated. They also have a blog with more ideas.
Want to add a little fun to your schooling? Check out the National Day Calendar and see what is being celebrated when and then add it to your day. For example, today is National Homemade Cookies Day. Soooo, get the kids in the kitchen and make some cookies together. Talk about the ingredients, where they came from, how they were processed, measuring, fractions, cooking terms, et cetera. Talk about the process at whatever level your children are at.
I hope these ideas and links are helpful to you. If you have any subject you need help finding ideas on how to study with your child, comment here and I’ll help as best I can.
Until next time, God bless,
