Hezekiah age 5
Over two years ago I blogged about using our ipod for homeschooling. In 2009, the use of the ipod for school is still going strong.
Hezekiah has just started first grade math and needed to learn to count by 10's. Jubilee's math book has her learning to count by 2's and 5's and Kalina's book has her learning to county by 9's. I searched itunes for skip counting songs and came up with this. It was the most palatable in my opinion, and my children enjoy it. My only complaint would be the "nines" song is in a techno-style that makes it difficult to even hear the numbers, so I ended up downloading this song as well. My children are divided on the "nines" song- they either love or hate it, but it's done a fabulous job of teaching Kalina to count by nines.
I plan to download some Dr. Seuss audio books for Mordecai to use as he follows along looking at the words. Mordecai can learn almost anything if it's set to music.
Does anyone else out there use an ipod for school?
