Math for homeschool
Sometimes, it's hard to motivate kids for math.
Shocking, I know...
Today, we had graphs and place value.....
Add candy to anything and suddenly people are smiling.
I give you, for your consideration, Skittle Math.
The results, as you can see, are quite pleasing. (We were going to do M&M Math but Skittles were on sale..)...and he's NOT posing. He's just that goofy.
I even found a lesson teaching the basics of fractions using HERSHEY BARS!! I'll tell ya, if I had chocolate and Math combined for me as a young girl with fragile x, I might have done a far sight better. (I hated fractions growing up. HATED THEM with a passion...it was before we knew about FX in my family..)
Seriously, this is one of the things that I LOVE about homeschooling. Knowing my kids as I do, I know what they like and respond to.
I know I'll be forced to play Skittle Bingo later.....after they brush their teeth.
