10 Days to Multiplication Mastery Wrap up and Book Combo ($12.99)
10 Steps to Addition Mastery Wrap up and Book Combo ($12.99)
Each set includes the base and all these little colorful circles. The little boxes each include 12 cards with 12 questions (challenges) per card, so 144 questions in a box (like that quick math? I did the wrap-ups too!).
The 3rd grade Math set has 6 boxes of cards and the Reading one has 5 boxes. That's a lot of variety for the kids.
To answer the questions on the cards, they use the colored circle and place them around the base in the correct spots. I love that this is another self-correcting "game." After all the circles are in place, they flip the card over and the colors should all match. Little Buzz did his on the back side only and matched the colors. It was so fun for him to "be big" like the kids and he was actually learning too...colors! T and P both did these also. T liked them because they were "easy" and I liked that it was really good review for him! P really had to think on some of the questions. Some of the math problems she would normally have worked out on paper, so was getting frustrated that I wouldn't let her use paper and pencil for them. You definitely could work them out on paper, but I chose to use this as a practice for standardized testing that we will be doing in a few weeks. I showed her how to rule out obviously wrong answers and narrow down her choices. Once she did this, it became more of a game and she wasn't stressing anymore. The reading ones were really good for review too - so many topics are covered that you could use these year round along with your Language Arts and Math curriculum.
Phew - that's a lot of things to review and it was so much fun. These were all fantastic supplements to our curriculum that I know we will continue to use. Now that they know how to use them all, they require really nothing from me (woot!) so are great for when I get a phone call or am helping C with his work or taking care of a little one. These will be kept with our school supplies or in work boxes for just those times and we will keep using them all.
