If you are new to Life of Fred, you may be asking, " does this all fit with a math chapter?"

That's the beauty of this math series-it all does! Author Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt does a brilliant job of presenting math lessons in a fun fashion, all while incorporating other interesting educational facts!

What an opportunity to build upon the various concepts that are interwoven into each chapter! This homeschool momma, who just loves to tweak and enhance curriculum, just could not resist creating lesson extensions!

Here's what we did to continue the learning fun with Life of Fred!

1. Snack (always important in a house with boys!) Alphabet Fun!
