I think I've screwed up when it comes to math. My oldest is not a math-loving-kid. He is doing great with the MEP and Math Mammoth that we have been using, but he says he hates it. He spends his days drawing, reading, and immersing himself in imaginative pretend play. Numbers don't excite him. So I'm back-pedaling and trying to come up with something to make him like math, or even love math. I think story-based math is what I need. I thought I might have found it with Noble Knights of Knowledge, but it appears that the company is no longer selling? (ETA~I finally found a used copy of this and Nik loves it!) I found a few lovely lessons called Gnomes and Numbers (and can't find the link now that I'm sitting here tying to post about it, of course!) They were on a Waldorf blog. Hmmmmm.
Oh, I found it.......sort of! The person who had the lessons on her blog is now selling her Waldorf curriculum. It's A Little Garden Flower's A Journey Waldorf Math Book and I bought the e-book. I can't wait for it to arrive in my inbox so I can try something new. Nik loves stories, so maybe this approach will get him excited about math.
Does anyone have any other recommendations for story-based math, besides Living Math which we are already incorporating?
While I'm on the subject, I found a really cool site with some fun math things. I particularly like this math worksheet (pdf) Name the Math Term.
