Life of Fred

http://www.stanleyschmidt.com/FredGauss/index2.htm

Ok It does not sound like a Math Curriculum, by the title. But it is a wonderful math Curriculum. My seven year old and my six year old recently started Life of Fred Apples. The first book. Even though they are in different places in math. The publishers recommend always starting at the beginning and there is so much more than general math being taught that is you really should. “I like doing math this way” My seven year very reluctant student.  By doing a life of Fred chapter we get in some reading and math in at the same time and I am all about that! I love when subjects over lap. We did chapter 3 yesterday and talked about the month of February, spelling, the order of the days of the week and addition. It teaches it as more of a concept that the memorization of math facts and that just works better for all of us here!!
