Math with Mom

As many of you may know, I don't use a "math program" with my little ones.
There's plenty of opportunity to learn the basic skills in everyday life.

Example 1
 I ask Buck, "If I owe you $3 and hand you $5, how much change would you owe me?"  5-3=2

Example 2
Honeybee wins Mr. Monopoly's loose change.
There are two $2 bills.
"What's 2+2?" asks Mom.
"4!" shouts Honeybee.

As you can see, the possiblities are endless.

Learning can be soooo much fun!
