We just finished up our THIRD week of workboxing. I love how Sue teaches you to break things up and utilize review in your boxes.
Here is something from our math program that can be thrown in a box with a dry erase marker. I simply printed practice sheets on colored paper and laminated.
The goal of the practice sheets is for Elijah to become rapid and fluid with these problems. He is not supposed to count to add the numbers together.
He has to figure them out by visualizing and thinking.
Rightstart has given Elijah an understanding of numbers; it has helped him to see the natural patterns that occur in mathematics, so he has already learned and figured out strategies that will enable him to complete the problems without counting.
Rightstart also wants the child to think about the number in as many ways as possible. You can see on the practice sheets that they mix it up (and my son is completely comfortable with all the different ways the problems are presented!).
This set is presented like this- 6 + __ = 10
This set starts with the whole.
I punched a hole, added a ring, and voila! All ready for workboxes. Elijah can choose one to complete. Once all the sheets have been finished (over many days), we can wipe them off and start over again!
I hope to continue adding some thoughts about Rightstart Math throughout my next few weeks of blog posts. Let me know if you have any questions about this math program.
