We've officially graduated from the first half of our math book.. addition, and we are moving into the world of subtraction. YAHOOO!!!! I still have only good things to say about Math-U-See. It has been a great program for our family.
The blocks are fun for everyone (including the babies) to play with, and the DVDs with Steve Demme are a real hit for the kids.
I also love how the workbook pages are plain old black and white without any fancy pictures or fonts. It helps keep my very distractable and doodling daughter on task. :-)
Here are some of the neat things I found on their website:
- a blog
- online drill pages and a
- worksheet generator that are useful even if you aren't using MUS,
- some free Mental Math exercises to help learn your math facts,
- piano music of the skip counting songs
- a Really cute Mac the Muskrat version of the skip counting songs. This is free, and a great way for the kids to memorize their math facts.
