The girls played dart math today, and I bet you are wondering what that is…. Well it’s a game the girls made up. The girls found two boxes and drew different shapes on the box with a permanent marker and then wrote different numbers in each shape and around. The girls then took turns trying to hit the numbers and adding them up. I gave them a calculator to make sure they were adding everything up correctly. Best thing about this game, they played for a good hour and not only did they do addition they did multiplication and subtraction and we even talked about negative numbers.

We also did khan academy (have I told you how much I love that site). Belle did subtraction 1 – she needed a little encouragement and she did all 10 problems in 5 minutes. Mac on the other hand did multiplication 3 and then did subtraction 3 and told me every problem how easy it was and decided to do 30 problems just to see if she could. I think she likes math.
