At least to Daisy anyway! Trying to get Daisy to 'remember' numbers, letters etc has been a real battle...I know she can do it, I just don't think she 'wants' to do it. So, in an attempt to encourage her to 'remember' more, I made her this maths book; and it has worked! She loves her 'pretty book' and has been doing regular maths with no problems ever since LOL.
We have membership to www.mathletics.co.uk as part of a group and have access to their downloadable workbooks; it is one of these that forms the basis of this book. They are great little workbooks that include lots of 'hands on' activities that the child can do in addition to the main lesson. I separated each topic with card & tabs and put a pocket at the beginning of each topic to store any manipulatives that she/we could make to give a hands on aspect to the topic. I also included extra plain/squared paper after lessons that I thought could be expanded and worksheets from other sources that I thought were interesting. She's loving all the hands on stuff and is 'remembering' everything that we are doing...the others are also showing an interest and are complaining that I haven't made them one!
|Front cover. I added her name, title and decorated the binding ring with ribbons and charms.|
|I added tabs on a sheet of card to separate each topic.|
|And lastly I added all the worksheets and bound it all together.|
