Today and many other days are frustrating for me when it comes to the subject of math. I am so blessed that God provided me with a husband that is not only great at math but loves it because I sure don’t! God knew ahead of time that I was going to homeschool and that this would be an area that I would struggle in so he so lovingly gave me a husband that would provide strengths where my weaknesses are.
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me
I have one child that has a hard time when it comes to math. It has taken him literally two years to finally get long division understood and it still is not to where I would like it. It takes him a long time to finish one work sheet and sometimes he even gets moody. It can be very frustrating to me as a homeschooling mom. One online game that I have found fun for the kids to memorize their multiplication facts is Timez Attack. You can learn more about it here. I am looking for a few more great ones for the kids to work on over the summer, so if you know of any, please let me know.
