Before the school year started we bought tickets to go see the Giants play in San Francisco. It just so happened that it landed on our first official week of school, through Visions in Education, the charter we are a part of. But hey, this is one of the many reasons we decided to homeschool, so off we went to the game!
This year I am using McGraw Hill Math, which is the common core curriculum used by the state. I have used it enough now to see why so many people don’t like it, but for 1st grade it’s working out alright. I looked through the year of lessons and saw the section “Tally Sheets.” How perfect would it be for our son to keep score at the game with a tally sheet, and get his math done at the same time?
Since my husband is the resident baseball and graphic design expert, I employed his services in the making of the tally sheet. We also brought along the chapter work for tally sheets from the math workbook, to do together in the car on the way to and from the city. What fun!
