Or, maybe they needed a little more work....or, there may be a random idea that they may come across during testing but who knows when it was really covered in math, and if it was, it was very very briefly.
I homeschool my girls and we do this at breakfast. Takes very little time and I am right there with them because we do end up having to discuss some of the ideas.
The concepts are repeated throughout the week and by Friday, they have got it. Huge confidence builder!!!
I do wish 8th grade had Friday tests, as the lower grades do, however, my daughter enjoys Fridays off (while her little sister sits there doing hers:)
I would highly recommend....I'm sure this will boast testing scores! Not only because of the random skills practiced but also because it makes them engage their brains. Sometimes if there is a question they aren't sure how to answer (what a certain shape is or how to find the MEAN) I make them search it on the internet vs. just giving them the answer. They actually enjoy it.
