When I was growing up we did not have home computers let alone PlayStation to entertain ourselves. Hand-held camcorders were barely coming to the retail market by the time I was in 8th grade, but still a long ways away from the YouTube and Facebook arena we now see today. Times were extremely different back then and so was school. From a teacher has perspective our competition is tough. Passing out a handout of 30 problems that are all in a format of 534x25= is not as stimulating in the students has eyes as playing games such as Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil.
I recommend getting one of these books when you first begin homeschooling and use it as a reference throughout your home-school journey. Regardless of how long you home-schooling, you will always have doubts and questions about how your child is performing.A scope and sequence book can put your mind at ease. Once you have a scope and sequence book, make a list of each area in math that he needs to work on for the school year.For example for grades three and four, by the end of the year in subtraction, your child should be able to: Solve vertical and horizontal computation problems,review subtraction of 2 numbers whose sums would be 18 or less,subtract 1- or 2-digit number from a 2-digit number with/without renaming, subtract 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers from 3- and 4-digit number with/without renaming,subtract 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-digit number from a 5-digit number. When you have this list, begin searching online for free math worksheets that fit your child has scope and sequence for the year and the goals you have set for your child.
When my daughter was young, she did something that needed attention. I no longer remember what it was that she did, but I told her to write the sentence I will not disobey my parents again 50 times. I should have known better, but I did not check on her at the beginning and then I got busy. So, sometime later, she brought me 50 sentences of I will not disobey my parents again. This issue of not practicing mistakes is extremely important. Parents should not give worksheets as busy work and teachers should only use them if you are going to have a non-math teacher substitute. White boards with supervision are always a better way to practice skills. If you need some time to do chores, your child will get much more benefit by helping you with the chores. And maybe you can work in a little discussion of numbers or counting while you do chores together.
