Did your children start out in public school and you just weren't thrilled about the education they were receiving? Perhaps you decided even before they started school that you would teach them at home. After all, who knows your children better than you do? And, who loves your children more than you do? When your children are very little you might even want to create your own curriculum. If you aren't a brainiac when it comes to math, don't fret. From using the library a lot to buying math supplies at an educational supply store, here are some ideas on how to teach your young homeschooled children math:
Get to Know Your Library Well -
Get to be friends with the staff at the library. By doing so, you'll establish yourself and your children as patrons who will be in the library often. Ask the librarians to help you find specific books that will help with math.
Shop At Educational Books And Supplies Stores -
Just as it's important to know your library and the library staff well, think about establishing a good relationship with the clerks at a store that sells educational books and educational supplies. When the staff knows that you are homeschooling, they will more than likely reach out to help you succeed. There will probably be so many math supplies at the store that you'll have trouble knowing which ones to buy.
Get the children involved in drawing for math learning, too. For example, ask them to draw seven houses on one side of a line and then have them draw three houses on the other side of the line. Now ask them to figure out how many houses there are combined. Or, ask them which number is greatest. You get the picture!

As someone who has changed my major more than a few times, I can tell you definitively that it isn't cheap to go to college. I have spent more on tuition than anything else in my life, which is one of the reasons that finding inexpensive books was so important to me. I started thinking about ways to save time and money, so I started searching for used books that were in decent condition. After a quick search, I was able to save a load of money on books, and it really helped me to navigate through school. Check out this blog for more great advice on saving money.
