I wanted to share what we do for 'Math' with Skipper (age 4.5).
Each unit in MFW is 4 days. We only do school with him 3 days a week, so we just move on to whichever day is next in the unit.
Day 1- We play a math game. We do Shoots & Ladders or Candy Land to practice counting. I also have several review games from The Mailbox we can do. This puzzle or this puzzle. I have something similar to this I bought at a teacher's supply store.
Day 2 & 3- We do the cuisenaire rods workbook. There are 2 pages for each letter, so we just do the ones for the letter we're on. It incorporates several math skills, as well as building letters & other fun pictures.
Day 4- We do a math worksheet. We have these books (which is not all math) and several other little workbooks like the ones at Target's Dollar Stop.
Math takes 5-10 minutes each day!
