This summer, I read a fantastic book that inspired me to think differently about the way we approach math in our homeschool. I’ve always enjoyed playing math with my children, but this year my goal is to be more intentional about our math projects. When I heard about Jade Rivera’s #VOMath, I knew it would be a great match for our family. Today, I’ve invited Jade to share a bit about the program and so, without further ado, here’s Jade:
#VOMath: A FREE Weekly Hands-On Math Challenge
Are you interested in project-based homeschooling but aren’t sure how to start? You’re not alone. For every person writing about the amazing time they are having in their project-based homeschool there are 1,000 more people who need direction to get started.
Another intimidating aspect of homeschool life is the subject of math. Many new homeschoolers aren’t satisfied with how they were taught math. They need inspiration for how to teach it differently. And like many others, they aren’t sure how to create math projects!
Luckily, I have a solution that helps both those who would like to bring more projects into their homeschool and are stumped when it comes to teaching math in a fun and engaging way.
#VOMath is weekly FREE hands-on math challenge hosted on my Facebook page. Each Friday, for the next ten weeks, I’ll share with you a new, fun, and easy to prepare math project that is simple to differentiate for different ability levels.
We’ve been at it for three weeks already! You can go here, here, and here to find our previous projects. When you’ve completed a project share photos of the process and the end result on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #VOMath. Kids love to see who is liking and who is commenting on their projects. If you’re looking to infuse your day with some free and fun engagement join us!
