In my homeschooling journey, there haven’t been too many math curricula that I have absolutely LOVED for all three of my children, but I may be changing my tune – mostly because of the actions of my children. One of them, Mother Nicholes voluntarily completes a page in her workbook each day (she prefers workbooks, wouldn’t you know) and the other two children complete them without any arguments. What curriculum could do this for our family?
This is a post sponsored by Page A Day Math. I’ve been compensated for my honest opinion, whether positive or negative. All opinions are my own.
What Page A Day Math Consists Of
- 12 workbooks with 2 weeks worth of problems
- One page with 40 math problems to complete – nothing more, nothing less.
- Handwriting worksheets
- Tracking progress sheet for accountability
- Dad jokes posted throughout the books, which my daughter LOVES popping in and sharing with me.
Why We Love It
We are specifically speaking of the multiplication workbooks in this review, but all of the kits come complete with what’s listed above.
I love it because it’s simple. It’s straightforward, and it doesn’t take a ridiculous amount of time to do each day. No tears, no arguments, no bartering. Which is a win for us. I’m not sure if we’ve just gotten to the point of our homeschooling journey where the kids are just falling into line, or if we’ve just gotten to the sweet spot in homeschool when we finally click with what we’re doing. Makes me feel like a pretty awesome teacher now. As I mentioned in several other posts in my curriculum reviews, I like when the curriculum is planned out for me, and all I have to do is check work and go. The hardest part of my job as a teacher is finding comprehensive curriculum that does that.
My children love it because it’s controlled by them, and they don’t have to interact with me too much, and that gives them some much-needed autonomy in their homeschool life. We’re moving closer and closer to being relaxed schoolers and that is just fine with me.
And I’m not sure about you all, but heavy books aren’t things we like lugging around, and since we make the kids carry their own books if they decide to do it while we’re out, these are very light and portable.
