It's virtual "hands on" method promotes the child to use, and think of, numbers intrinsically. The video is of Tris playing, but Trace practiced counting to 100 by fives today. He needed 100 balls to throw at the wall of -100 blocks, but the highest ball machine he could find was 5s.
Very affordably priced- $25, or $19.95 through the Free Homeschool Buyers Co-op. It's not a yearly subscription, either! Putting Mathbreakers with Splash Math as the two most affordable, for purchase, elementary math programs I'm aware of. Having lower one time purchases than many yearly math subs.
*ATTENTION* Mathbreakers did NOT give me anything. Be assured the opinions here are truly how we feel about the program, which is that Mathbreakers is awesome =)

Tristian got an awesome magnet kit for Christmas; so, they came home and decided to tear into that and start trying out some experiments. They are having lots of fun and learning tons =)
Including a couple pictures below and a video where they were making a magnet spring.
Tris wanted to clarify- he meant to say a north pole was facing towards a north pole and a south pole was facing towards a south pole.

Something happened that doesn't happen often when hour tracking. All of our total hours lined up as whole hours (no decimal points!). This is neat because it makes it very easy to visualize and get an idea of where we are at for the year. I thought I'd share a pie chart of what our hours look like so far this year:
You can see we've hit two of the Missouri Homeschool yearly hour requirements, already. In having 600 or more total core hours. With 400 or more of those core hours having been at the homeschool location. That's a good feeling! We need 263 hours still to hit our last hour requirement of having 1,000 total homeschool hours. We are a little over half way through our 3rd quarter. With a total of 11 more formal education weeks left in our school year, not including Spring-Break or Wrap-Up weeks. We're doing great; ahead of the game plan!
