Making Math Fun

 I love math! It was always my favorite subject in school. Sadly, our daughter does not share my love of math. She will shutdown completely and not even try, even though she is amazing at it. So I have to make math fun so she’ll want to do it. We got this monkey scale a long time ago. I used it at first to show her visually what is bigger/smaller, heavier/lighter, many/few. It worked great and was super fun for her.

Since she enjoyed this balance so much I’m not incorporating it into our Math-U-See curriculum. She has the physical blocks and the balance to solidify her math knowledge. But the most important part is that she is finding math can be fun. If you teach at a school or at home you know it’s important for the student to enjoy school. If you’d like an idea to make a subject more fun for your student just let me know in the comments!
