Disclaimer: I received one unit of Discovering Learning Math Subscription Level 1 for free. I was compensated for my time. All opinions are honest and I was not required to post a positive review.
I am always on the hunt for new resources to help my boys get excited about learning. When we pulled our two older boys out of public school and had a period of deschooling, I discovered that learning does not have to be boring or stressful. In fact, I realized that my boys learn best when information is presented to them in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
I am thrilled to share a new resource that Bear (6) is using to supplement his homeschool math. has provided Bear with a fun way to review, learn, and practice math concepts and skills. Let's look at why Bear is enjoying his Level 1 Unit!
Why We Are Using A Fun Math Program for Young Learners
Bear is a rather precocious six-year-old. He sits in on his older brothers' math lessons and often engages in discussions about concepts like multiplication, pre-algebra, and geometry. As much as Bear benefits from this multi-age environment, he has trouble consistently writing his numbers correctly, following directions, and self-correcting his work. Bear is very much an outside the box type of thinker who wants to invent his own number system, alphabet, and universe when given the opportunity.
With his entrance into "official" first-grade work, I wanted Bear to have extra practice with these areas, especially writing his numbers. Bear's previous experiences with homeschool math involved lots of hands-on learning with games, activities, and stories. I thought a workbook approach with writing exercises would be a great way to supplement his current math.
As a busy homeschool mom to five boys, I was drawn to the prepared kit that arrives at your house every month. No prep = happy mama! Also, I appreciated the easy to use format that would be simple for Bear and myself to implement.
One of the interesting aspects of this fun math program is how it teaches kids how to self-correct and fix their work. Unfortunately, this important academic skill has been lost in our busy homeschool schedule of late. I was excited to provide Bear with an opportunity to learn and practice this habit for work and tests.
Bear has a tendency to be perfectionistic in his homeschool work. His frustration level rises and he is more likely to give up when he writes a number wrong or makes a mistake in his work. Discovering Learning helps kids to know that it's okay to get a problem wrong and leads them through the process of correcting their work.
Discovering Learning: A Fun Math Program
When I had the opportunity to review the first unit of , I jumped at the chance. I checked out the materials and knew that Bear would love the colorful and engaging pictures. The activities looked fun and educational.
Bear was super excited to open his fun math program! He has often been the recipient of hand-me-down items, including homeschool resources. His very own special package filled with math fun!
His Discovering Learning 1-1 kit included:
- Math Workbook
- Math Scorebook (replica of workbook with correct answers for kids to check and correct their work)
- Test (which was fun and not intimidating! Great introduction to taking a test!)
- Parent Guide
- Student Letter
- Super cool red pen to use to correct work
The math concepts covered in Level 1 Unit 1, designed for ages 4-6, include:
- Count from 1 to 5
- Write numbers from 1 to 5
- Add and subtract numbers from 1 to 5
- Learn about zero
Depending on your child's reading level, you may need to sit next to them and read the instructions. You may also need to provide a more detailed explanation of the concept and work that is expected.
The workbook provides a helpful visual to teach your kids how to correct their own work. You may want to work with them the first few times to make sure that they know what to do.
Your advanced preschooler, Kindergartner, or first grader in need of extra practice and review may enjoy these fun exercises.
