K- was doing very well in math. They started working on shapes and volume in class and I ended up back sliding. She was never a child that was thrilled with flash cards and it was a fight to get her to do them.
I gave her a break during break and during volume studies. Whooo boy, could you tell.
:thunks to the forehead:
So, it's taken about 2 weeks of worksheets every night, but we've pulled her back around. You know what? She loves doing the worksheets. Flashcards be gone!
So, where have I found these delightful worksheets? Here. They have an addition worksheet generator that I use. You plug the values into the chart, hit submit and it pops a worksheet up for you. The neato thing? You can hit the refresh button and it will flip you a new worksheet.
They have subtraction worksheets, but not on a generator format. That makes me sad, but it is a free resource and I'm glad to have it.
I've also gone through and printed their clock worksheets. Much like the addition worksheets, they ask you a series of questions and then you hit submit. K-'s class is working on up to the quarter hour. They aren't to the 5 or 1 minute breakdown yet. Still, a lovely thing to use.
It pulled us out of our math rut. Any educational finds that you have online that I could use for a 1st grader?
Smiles in my day:
- 1 W-2 in. Just waiting on another. And a mortgage interest statement. Soon the taxes will be done.
|My people trying to lift a car at COSI the other day. Hubs reports that it was harder than he thought, but they did lift it a ways.|
- K- has two bonus words for spelling. She was just given them yesterday and she has the word "January" down. (I made up a goofy song.) She would have had "winter" but she forgot the 'e.' She'll have it by Friday.
Have a great day!
