Do you have a child struggling with math? Boot camps are a great way to add multi-sensory games to add to your math practice? This class is a popular addition to ANY math curriculum.
Homeschool publications and blogs are all a buzz about multi-sensory, concrete learning—with good reason. Kids learn better, faster, and have more fun doing so. Yes, this even works for math facts!
We’ll guide students step-by-step through how to have a ball with math facts. We’ll use unit cubes, dominoes, the “missing number” game, have a catch, hop through multiplication facts, and catch flashcard fever—keeping addition and subtraction from getting dicey.
Students will also enjoy presentations to help build number sense and understanding of place value, solidify conceptual understanding of 4-digit operations. Includes free printables: tracking sheets, a hundred chart, and missing addend chart.
Come race with us to math success!
