This was Mat's homework today. She has been working really hard at learning the multiplication table. This week, and the next two weeks, we have some extra time between dropping off Meg and Mat at their different schools. Yesterday we took advantage of the time by coming up with a menu for the rest of the week. Today we worked on multiplying by 7. By the time she got out of the "blue bus" she knew up to 12, which is what the teacher requires. I guess we'll work on 8 tomorrow. This extra time will be beneficial to her math skills. Maybe Kade will pick up on some too. He's already adding.
