Do you ever get bored?
Whether it's the same meals over and over ... or the same clothing in your closet ... or the same homeschool workbook.
If you're like me, your brain at some point starts to say ... "Seriously ... can we do something different!?!"
That's why I'm constantly on the lookout for new and interesting ways to teach the same subjects.
And after 4 kids, basic math facts are DEFINITELY something that I want to do differently.
That's why I LOVE 7Ate9 ... a simple card game that review addition and subtraction in an exciting and different way.
While it's designed to be a speed game (which is awesome because I want those facts to be automatic), I've also slowed it down for kids who are still learning or who get stressed over having to go too fast.
Now that my kids are older, it's still a game that we pull out and play -- because it's fun even when you already KNOW your facts.
And who doesn't need a good basic review now and then?
