Math...it was always my least favorite subject when I was in school! Math was just not my strong point, and lets just say that I would've rather been studying history or reading a novel than crunching numbers. Math takes a lot of brain power to master and understand, and with the limited time that the teachers have to get all the kids in their class learning and understanding math concepts, some of the students will fall between the cracks. Here's the comical part of it all...now that I have my own children, we've decided to homeschool so you know what that means...yep, I am the one who has to now TEACH all these same math concepts and skills to our children! There's nothing quite like teaching a skill to make you finally learn it well...and possibly even learn to love it! ;)
DK Canada is a company that I wish would've been around when I was "that" kid in school who really, really disliked math and just needed some extra motivation and resources to help me realize that I could do it and math could be fun! DK Canada never fails to give Canadian families the resources they need (Canadian-based resources too!) to help their kids along in a huge variety of subjects that they will be covering in school. One of the more major ones, of course, is math. DK Canada has all sorts of great and very helpful, math books and resources for both parents and children. We received a few math workbooks for our younger girls to try out and both of the books were received into our home with excitement and anticipation.
