Once you have a scope and sequence book, make a list of each area in math that he needs to work on for the school year. For example for grades three and four, by the end of the year in subtraction, your child should be able to: Solve vertical and horizontal computation problems, Review subtraction of 2 numbers whose sums would be 18 or less, Subtract 1- or 2-digit number from a 2-digit number with/without renaming, Subtract 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers from 3- and 4-digit number with/without renaming, Subtract 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-digit number from a 5-digit number
I recommend getting one of these books when you first begin home schooling and use it as a reference throughout your home school journey. Regardless of how long you home school, you’ll always have doubts and questions about how your child is performing.A scope and sequence book can put your mind at ease. When you have this list, begin searching online for free math worksheets that fit your child’s scope and sequence for the year and the goals you have set for your child.
As a parent, I’m very aware of what my own children are learning in school. For the most part, I’ve been happy with their progress, but as they rise in grade level, I’m starting to see more emphasis on a loose understanding of the concepts and less emphasis on skills–particularly skills with arithmetic of fractions. The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught ”concepts” and are not taught skills–unless they’re lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better. Most particularly, children are not taught mastery of arithmetic with fractions. Unfortunately, virtually all of their future math education depends on being able to do fractional arithmetic.
