I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Addition Made Easy

on August 12, 2012

Math Made Easy sent us their addition package: Addition Teaching and Learning Made Easy. It’s a long title but a simple little Math Program aimed at the memorization of Addition facts without finger – counting! This is a 64 page, spiral combed book full of everything you need to teach this program – the Lesson Plan, a Pre and Post Test, the worksheets, the Games, even the Double sided flashcards. This is a six-week program. You start by adding 0’s and 1’s, which are rapidly picked up the children. Then they eliminate all the duplicate facts (2+3 is the same as 3+2). This leaves only 36 facts for the children to memorize. So each week, the student learns six random facts! (They are not in family groups.) The facts are taught through worksheets (coloring, matching, puzzles, etc.), Games, and Flashcards. The flashcards are double-sided with, for example 8+6 on one side and 6+8 on the other side. The double facts (4+4) have some 0 and 1 facts thrown in (9+0).

All the worksheets are black and white to facilitate easy copying for at home use. The game pieces are on heavier colored card stock and need cut out. For what at first glance seems almost too simplified, it is a solid program. I am looking forward to what the other reviewers say about the multiplication set, since we need work memorizing those facts as well!

This sells for $24.95 here. This is a quick and easy way to replace drilling for fact memorization. This is recommended for 1st and 2nd grade or lower ages ready for addition. We received this package free in exchange for our honest review. We are so blessed!
