It may be a little strange but I’m definitely not going to discourage it. My daughter loves to work on math problems in her spare time. I’ve never seen a child that yearns to learn like my little Honey. I found her one day writing down math problems on a sheet of paper and then solving them. At school they are working on problems using the numbers 0-5 however I believe Honey just doesn’t find that challenging enough. She wants to be able to easily add the higher numbers 6-9. So I found this great site for her and every couple of days I print off math worksheets. The site is SoftSchool.com this is a great tool for home schoolers. It has worksheets for math, science, writing, foreign language and more. I’ve book marked it because it is just such a wonderful tool if you happen to have a child like mine. Her favorite math work sheet is the Math Puzzles.
You can select work sheets based on grade. You can also tell it what numbers you want your child to work on. For example because I knew Honey wanted to challenge herself with higher numbers I asked for numbers 0-9.
I can’t wait to see how Honey develops and what she leans towards as she grows. My husband and I are both stronger in math. I use to shy away from english, writing, grammar, and especially spelling. Art was always another favorite of mine. I have always loved to draw and feel more balanced with a creative outlet.
Right now Honey seems to love it all, she is excelling at the reading and the math. It is so fun to watch our children grow into their own.
