Shouldn't Math Be Fun and Easy?

No tomatoes, please.

If you've homeschooled at least one child for say... any amount of time, then I would almost gaurentee you or one of your children, or maybe even both of you, or even ALL of you have had days where you would just love to chuck anything pertaining to math!

How do I know this? Honey! My oldest and I have been there, done that, and got the stinkin' T-shirt! UGH! At least 1-2 times a week one of us ends up in tears over math. Especially when she's learning a new concept. So believe me, I understand.

So when I saw Lynn's daughter demonstrate this, I knew instantly what tomorrow's math lesson was going to be!

Thank you Lynn and Makayla!

Thanks for sharing that. Currently we are using Horizons Math just because DD does well with it and likes it (If it ain't broke ...) but I am thinking that maybe next year we need to try something else? I dunno ....

We use Horizons Math as so far no frustrations...however, this video is AWESOME! It will help ME, forget the kids. :)
