Ideas to help support your child’s mathematical growth and resilience.    I am slowly building some references.  This site will have a page per chapter/unit with a few videos and pictures to help support the learning of the children.  I hope this helps some.  I will be updating the science ones to more align with our new curriculum in the coming months, but the main concepts are still relevant.
