We often tend to compartmentalize subjects when teaching. However, real life doesn't serve up problems or issues in neat, subject-labeled situations! The Math Lessons for a Living Education curriculum teaches math through a blend of stories, copy work, oral narration and hands-on activities, showing how math is used in "real life"---just like a living math book! Thirty-six weeks of instruction guide students through the content, story, and hands-on activities using inexpensive manipulatives provided/made by the parent.
This book is written to be used by teachers and students together. It includes a suggested weekly schedule (30 minutes per lesson, 5 days per week, 36 weeks) with easy-to-manage lessons that include reading, worksheets, and assessments. Pages are perforated and three-hole-punched so that parents can easily tear out, hand-out, and store pages. Students will read the pages in the book and complete the corresponding section provided by the teacher. Assessments are given at regular intervals. Answer keys are available online.
This second-grade resource features the continuing story of twins Charlie and Charlotte, who are learning that life is full of learning opportunities! As students read, they'll be drawn into an adventure that teaches them about numbers, shapes, place value, adding, and subtracting, as well as the seasons, geography, and the love of family. The first 30 lessons have a story about the twins, followed by a lesson taught by Mom or Dad that features hands-on learning.
Covering one year of 2nd grade math, by the end of the course students will have reviewed addition and subtraction and basic numbers up to 100, and will have learned about word problems, skip counting, money, time, bar & line graphs, basic measurement, place value, regrouping, and more.

Homeschooler by default2 Stars Out Of 5Not a good fitJanuary 23, 2018Homeschooler by defaultQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2I was really excited to try this curriculum, but was not thrilled. It moved VERY slowly for us and was just not a good fit for my child or for my needs as a teacher. There seemed to be a lot of "fluff" and not many practice problems. It also seemed to have a lot of focus on writing numbers and not as much focus on calculations or math skills. At least the curriculum was not expensive. We stuck it out through several lessons, but ended up giving up. I know every child is different, so it might work for some families.
Ashley L5 Stars Out Of 5Math Lessons For a Living Education is wonderful!March 5, 2016Ashley LQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I think I have been through every math curriculum out there and we have never found one that really fits us well. I stumbled upon Math Lessons and my children and I LOVE it! The stories are fun and engaging and we love the hands on activities and real world applications. So blessed for this curriculum!
