One of the amazing deals featured at Educents is Life of Fred Math. Up until about 2 years ago I had never even looked at Life of Fred, and had no clue what all the fuss was about.  I bought 4 of the elementary math books to use with Krash last year as a supplemental review and we fell in love! 

We are now using the same books with Ladybug this year, as more of a main math program for 1st grade. Educents kindly sent us the remaining books in the series for this review, since we only owned the first 4 books of the series. The photo below shows all 10 of the elementary math books.

Dr. Schmidt recommends that all students up to 4th grade start with Apples and work their way through the entire elementary series.  Krash is in 4th grade this year and finishing up the series this year {we hope}.  Ladybug is in 1st grade and just started!

These books looked strange to me at first. Take a peek. Does this look like a math book to you?

Life of Fred

 

Not really, huh?  But it is math. presented in a engaging, purposeful and silly way.  Our entire family now really enjoys Life of Fred math! The strangeness is what has really drawn us in.  The characters are quirky, the stories are funny, and the math is practical.

Want a deeper peek?  Scroll down to the product description section on this page and there’s a link to see inside of each book!  There’s also a great overview video!

We just started with Ladybug and I captured a bit of learning with her Dad during her first week. They sit together like this most days and will use a dry erase board to complete the problems at the end of each chapter.

Here’s a video I made showing them in action.  It’s about 6 minutes long, giving you a peek into chapters 1 & 2 from Apples.

 

For more added fun, invite your dog!
