QOTD: Mom how many seonds in a year?

Ironhide, new nickname Jet Ray, woke this morning and asked "Mom how many seconds in a year?"

Google produced: 1 year = 31,556,926 seconds

"How many in two years...Oh you just multiply by 2 right? So when are we going to get started on that multiplication stuff Mom?"

I thought to myself, that is not part of my math plan...that is not on the schedule. But again why do you homeschool? So you can change the plan right?

So this morning will include review of skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. Leading up to the defining what multiplication is via BrainPopJr. and Schoolhouse Rock. Then starting with hands on examples of twos.

Love it! That's the true heart of homeschooling- the ability to follow a child's interests and make a lasting impression.
