I've mentioned before that my children are doing Mathletics this year. Along with the on-line activities and games, I also print out their worksheets for each grade level. One of the best aspects of this curriculum is the different ways they have of getting students to view problem solving. They include many real-life applications and fun games for the younger ones.
This week, Seth is reviewing counting. Yes, a bit below his level, but, sometimes it's nice to do something a bit easy. Anyway, one of the activities was to pick a number from a given list and count up to the next 100. We chose the number 922. The spin was to do it with a partner each person alternating numbers (i.e., he'd say 922, I'd say 923, he'd say 924, etc.) and say them as if you were arguing. This was a ton of fun! Mike got the camera out about half-way through our argument.
Just another day of homeschooling!
