I must say, this little misunderstanding between my daughter and her math concepts is getting old. I can’t decide if she simply is not “getting it” or if it’s just easier to say 3 + 1 is 31! AGGGHHH!!
I have tried her counting up string, counting beads, counting beans, counting pennies (what a disaster that was!). I’m not giving up though. Today I’m going to take Kelly‘s advice. She posted a comment earlier suggesting placing painters tape on the floor and letting them “Hop Up” as they add. I went on a cleaning spree yesterday and now have floor space to do this fun activity!
We’ll follow it up with a worksheet, Sam always likes those.
I’m confused, however, with regard to her math abilities. We went through one of her department store math books yesterday and she did subtraction with NO problem! I wasn’t even helping her. I wasn’t going to show her subtraction yet. We’re still in our first semester of Kindergarten for goodness sakes. I’m more interested in making sure she can read. She just jumped in and brought me the worksheet when she was done!
Well, confused and still guzzling coffee, I’m off to my favorite math worksheet site to print off some “problems” for us to “HOP” into today! Have fun with your homeschooling today and God Bless!
