MY kids need to practice their math facts so they can get faster. They answer the questions correctly at school, it just takes them longer to do it. I'm not going to lie. I'm thinking it's because my kids were born with molasses legs and do everything extra slowly. especially the Megster. SO, I'm compiling this list of sites for them to use after their homework is done everyday. I'm also throwing in other education sites for them to try out. I thought I'd post this on here in case any of you people need something like this for your own kiddos. Here goes:
QUICK FLASH II
MULTIPLICATION TIMED TEST- this one come with a sticker chart you can print, too
TIMED MULTIPLICATION TEST- This one has a lot of other math tools like budgeting tools and business calculators
MY KIDS' FAVORITE MATH SITE
THEIR TYPING SITE
OTHER TYPING/KEYBOARDING GAMES at learning games for kids- there are a lot of other types of learning game on this site. Check it out.
BBC BITSIZE DANCE MAT TYPING- this one is a guided tour by a British sheep. if your kids like animation I'd start them here. Also, if you click where it says BITESIZE on the site, it will take you to a lot of other learning games sorted by level.
FREE LANGUAGE LESSONS. THE KIDS ARE LEARNING PORTUGUESE
STARFALL- learn to read. My kids are too old for this one, but I put it here for anyone with young children
ROSETT STONE KIDS READING- this is another for preschool age kiddos.
Hey friends! I thought, since it's fall, that I would post a fallish recipe every so often. So here is a great recipe for Pumpkin cookies from our Matheson cousins:
Glazed Pumpkin Cookies
Mix wet ingredients, then add the dry ingredients; mix well.
Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes. While baking, make glaze:
What's going on??? Well, a lot. Not all of which I'm going to post today, but I will give you a mini run down. We are in Arizona living with Aaron's parents until he takes his 1st board exam and gets assigned a rotation track somewhere. Possible destinations: Bakersfield CA, Chicago IL, Cheverly MD, Brentwood MD, Queens NY, Far Rockway NY, Pontiac MI, and Saginaw, MI.
Aaron's first choice is CA but we shall see where we end up. The rotation tracks begin in December and January but unlike Aaron the kids and I are waiting until school ends in May to move. It kind of needs to happen that way since we don't get any loan money until he's been in rotations for a month and a half. yipes!
Right now Aaron is studying for his first board exam which is suuuuper stressful, so keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Other than all that stuff we have been cultivating our garden in the back yard, Meg and Matt enjoy their cub scouts and activity day activities respectively, and I will be singing with Geek Empire again soon. Fun times!
Wasn't that a frigging awesome post? yeah? I think you should comment and say something about how much you enjoyed it. Dont you? at 11:07 AM
