I'll fill you all in on what I bought to use during this homeschooling year. Well DS has been excelling big time on his reading. He's 6 but is reading at a 3rd grade level and this book here is what helped big time Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons . This is what helped big time. Now he's not doing the best in math. I think it's because last year I used all work books and I didn't really engage the whole lets have fun with math thing. I mean school should be fun. I know you're thinking "school is not suppose to be fun". Well I don't know about you but the things I do remember from school have everything to do with something exciting, totally mind engaging fun. I want that for my DS. So I set out and bought some videos. Don't shake your head, please. He's a visual learner so I'm hoping this will help him actually get excited about math again. I bought fridgeplay magnetic clock set and all of this.
