We often tend to compartmentalize subjects when teaching. However, real life doesn’t serve up problems or issues in neat, subject-labeled situations! The Math Lessons for a Living Education curriculum teaches math through a blend of stories, copy work, oral narration and hands-on activities, showing how math is used in “real life”—just like a living math book! Thirty-six weeks of instruction guide students through the content, story, and hands-on activities using inexpensive manipulatives provided/made by the parent.
This book is written to be used by teachers and students together. It includes a suggested weekly schedule (30 minutes per lesson, 5 days per week, 36 weeks) with easy-to-manage lessons that include reading, worksheets, and assessments. Pages are perforated and three-hole-punched so that parents can easily tear out, hand-out, and store pages. Students will read the pages in the book and complete the corresponding section provided by the teacher. Assessments are given at regular intervals. Answer keys are available online.
This second-grade resource features the continuing story of twins Charlie and Charlotte, who are learning that life is full of learning opportunities! As students read, they’ll be drawn into an adventure that teaches them about numbers, shapes, place value, adding, and subtracting, as well as the seasons, geography, and the love of family. The first 30 lessons have a story about the twins, followed by a lesson taught by Mom or Dad that features hands-on learning.
Covering one year of 2nd grade math, by the end of the course students will have reviewed addition and subtraction and basic numbers up to 100, and will have learned about word problems, skip counting, money, time, bar & line graphs, basic measurement, place value, regrouping, and more.
