Welcome to the second book in the Math Lessons for a Living Education series! This book is the continuing story of Charlie and Charlotte, who are discovering that life is full of learning opportunities! As you read their story, your students will be drawn into the adventure along with the twins. They will learn about numbers, shapes, place value, adding, and subtracting. They will also learn about the seasons, geography, and the love of family. We hope you have a wonderful time exploring and learning! Math Level 2:
- Teach math lessons through the creative means of a life story
- Provides a link for the downloadable answer key
- Has a scope and sequence that includes subtraction, writing numbers to 100, introducing word problems and measurement, and dollars and cents.
You will find that Math Lessons for a Living Education is a unique approach to learning math. A blend of stories, copy work, oral narration, and hands-on experience brings the concepts to life and invites the child to explore the world around them. The tone of this math book is meant to speak personally to each child, and the method easily adapted to any teaching style. The first 30 lessons have a story about the twins, followed by a lesson, taught by Mom or Dad through hands-on learning. After the story, there is a section for students to practice the lesson they learned and to review what they have learned earlier. “Quizzes” or reviews, are in the form of “letters to family and friends.” Students show what they have learned by writing the letters for the twins!
