Math Made Easy--TOS Review

Math Made Easy is a simple workbook set designed to help your kids master the basics of addition, without using their fingers, in just six short weeks. We reviewed the addition package and it's primarily for children in the 1st-2nd grade range (but has been used with successfully with some kindergartners and special needs kids of various ages).

Each set sells for $24.95 and the addition book includes the following:
  • Philosophy
  • Lesson Plans
  • Pre and Post Tests
  • Zeroes and Ones
  • Addition Table
  • Weekly Guide Sheet
  • Six Weeks of Daily Activity Sheets
  • Addition Reviews
  • Games
  • Flash Cards
The activities in this book are fun and like a "project" My 1st grader is all about projects so she didn't mind doing these math worksheets at all! Each week included addition drills, matching up the question with the correct answer, coloring sheets (after finding the answer, the correct color was indicated). There were cut and paste puzzle type activities and "break the code" type activities. This book was the perfect level for my first grader and she enjoyed every day's activity.

The back of the book provided the games (printed on cardstock) as well as the flash cards. We had fun "laminating" these with contact paper so they would stay in good shape for the next child. Everything was presented in a simple yet effective way, we REALLY enjoyed using Math Made Easy!
