Understanding new math concepts are one of the major hurdles of elementary math. The key to success is practice, practice, practice! That’s exactly what Page a Day Math offers young students, practice developing their math abilities, one step at a time. We were able to download their Addition Starter Kit, Subtraction Starter Kit, Division Starter Kit and checked out their Amazing Adjectives handwriting practice over the last few weeks!
Each of their math kits offers a series of books, and each book is composed of 14 days of practice and 550 math problems. I’m sure that you guessed your student will be practicing a “page a day,” and that’s correct- except if you print out a day’s work, rather than purchase a physical kit, then technically they will be doing two pages a day- which my five-year-old made sure I was aware of!
My kindergartener started the program with the Addition Starter Kit. She was already familiar with some addition from 1-10, so I was excited that this program would help give her some extra math practice. Book One featured plus one equation, which was too simple for her, so we started in book two with plus two equations. I was pleasantly surprised that within the first few days, her ability to write the numbers beautifully improved. This is an awesome bonus of the program, especially in a world where much learning is done online; handwriting practice often is left in the dust.
Here’s her improvement:
Now, we teach addition and subtraction simultaneously as well as multiplication and division at the same time because they’re such similar processes. So, before she cruised through the addition worksheets, we switched over book two of the Subtraction Starter Kit so that she could see that subtraction was merely going in the reverse number direction from addition. The Subtraction Starter Kit presented subtraction in a similar way as the Addition Kit. Book One features -1 equations, Book two is -2, and so on.
My 8-year-old also enjoyed Page A Day Math practice. He is pretty solid on his multiplication tables, so we had him try out the Division Starter Kit. The Division Kit features 12 division books. Book one goes over each number divided by one. The second book goes over division by twos, while also reviewing each number divided by one equals itself. The repetition was really helpful for memorizing equations, and improving handwriting. I was very pleased with the results, and my kids enjoyed the worksheets!
I feel like Page A Day Math offers excellent math practice to use along side any math curricula. As we enter into the summer season, where math skills tend to simmer on the back burner, I feel that these workbooks will be extra helpful in practice and improving skills before we start the next level of math in the fall. I'd recommend this program to homeschoolers and traditional students as well as everyone can benefit from the practice!
