I’m always looking for fun new ways to “feed” my bugs the information they need to learn. For one whole semester, Doodlebug has been fascinated with the ‘Speed Drills’ that come in her Christian Light Curriculum Math books. All of a sudden she has forgotten how to write, or how to read, or maybe it was how to add 1 plus 1 but either way she is adamant that she can NOT do this anymore. This means only one thing, she’s bored. I saw it coming, way back at Thanksgiving when she started writing her numbers backwards or going back and connecting them claiming to be writing in cursive. She was getting bored then and now it is officially just too boring for her. So momma is going to spice it up a bit.
We’re going to feed her the same information, the same drills, in a new way. Last night I created a practice spreadsheet.
It’s so fun! She can just type the answer into the green box and immediately she’ll know if she has answered it correctly! SOOO, since I’m not the only one with child in need of a change, I’ve uploaded the xls file for you! Click on the image above, or go to our “Free From Me” page. Most Excel spreadsheets can be opened in OpenOffice, but if it doesn’t work for you just let me know and I’ll try to convert it for you!
There are four quizzes, with 15 problems on each quiz. The formula cells have been protected so little fingers can’t get “type happy”.
Please let me know what you think! Have fun and happy schooling!
** it’s 14 degrees this morning, and they closed the local school not because of snow, but because they didn’t want underdressed children to get frostbite standing at the bus stops…don’t tell Doodlebug but she’s going to have school anyway! LOL I *heart* homeschooling!**
