Aubrey Posted January 20, 2011 Share Posted January 20, 2011 (edited) I'm not sure what I'm asking, but I've got a kid who learns differently. If we can have a "conversation" about it, she does great. I know how to do that with history. I know how to do that with science. Thanks to MCT, we do this with grammar, but I'm at a loss as to how to do this with math. Ds is doing LoF, which I think will be great for dd when she gets to that point, but she's not there yet. And...something even more story-based than that would really be great, I think. I've requested things like The Grapes of Math from the library, but there are only a few titles covering a limited number of topics (few of which deal w/ things she needs to focus on). Iow, it might be a good start, but...I guess more than a particular math-story, I'm looking for...a teaching skill/style I can learn/adapt. I found some books on this subject (teaching math through literature) on Amazon, but they're kind-of expensive w/ no preview & not avail in my library. :glare: Ideas? I'm interested in reviews of the teaching books as well as ideas for how to do this. TIA! :001_smile: ETA: One more thing. The other "conversation-based" subjects we do aren't skill-based, so we can do them together. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around this kind of approach to a subject with only one kid at a time.
