This year my 6 older children will be using The Life of Fred textbooks for mathematics. We really enjoy the way the author uses a storyline in these books to bring math "into the real world."
Lessons will be completed in simple, inexpensive spiral notebooks. The August Notebooking Round-Up at The Notebooking Fairy mentioned some new Dinah Zike products which are kind of a mix between lapbooking and notebooking. I plan to have the children create something similar to include additional notes and formulas in their notebooks for future reference.
My 6 year old will be using a combination of the free math curriculum made available online by the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching and living math activities. She will also be doing some math notebooking along with the 11, 10, and 8 year old. We completed my Geometry Notebook Pages in the Spring, and will be doing the Counting & Numbers pages this Fall.
|Math notebook pages are stored in plastic 3-prong folders.|
