This year has prompted many new things, especially in math skills for my third grade daughter. When we started the year she was working on a fourth grade math level, and learning the beginning basics of multiplication. She is doing well, but I was excited to jump into the possibility of a review product for enhancing her skills to learn multiplication facts. Through the blessing of the Homeschool Review Crew, we were granted a three month subscription to Times Tables the Fun Way from Times Alive. In this subscription, we have three months to utilize the program to teach multiplication. I’ve found after my daughter completed the 18 lessons within two weeks this may be one of the best ways to learn multiplication and teach times tables, indeed! We “bought” the account and registered and were given special login information. Interesting, and one of the first things to note is that. . .
We must make some changes. This is spun from a text I sent to a friend, but I would love more advice from many of you seasoned mamas. Basically without getting too many names involved, where we live we either have to be in an umbrella, or distance learning private school, or with the county. For my oldest, we have chosen to have her in a distance learning private school which was great until they changed all the requirements this year the day before classes officially began. It has been a stressful nightmare. It is no longer homeschool but school at home with crazy busy work and deadlines that just don’t work. My daughter is seven, working mostly at a third grade level in fifth grade math. With certain things she needs a bit more time but can do it. But with their new deadlines it doesn’t matter and no. . .
