There are tons of options for math drill books out there, but my favorites are all from Kumon.
Some of the features I like in Kumon books:
-Each book targets one specific skill, so I can focus on exactly what my kids need.
-Logical and sequential progression within each book
-Pages have appealing graphics and lots of white space
–Good quality paper that’s easy to erase
Here are a few that my kids have used and benefited from.
My Book of Number Games. This is an entire book of dot-to-dots and color-by-number pages. It begins with numbers to 20 and then gradually increases up to 70. Perfect for a child who know the counting sequence but needs to practice identifying the numbers in order.
My First Book of Money: Counting Coins. This book goes through pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters and gives lots of practice in counting up different amounts of change. The focus is on money, but its real value is all the mental math and place value practice. Fluent calculations with 5s, 10s, and 25s are key to solving addition problems quickly and understanding our number system. Highly recommended for kids who have learned some addition but aren’t very confident with mental math.
Grade 3 Multiplication. Ignore the grade level on all these books; as homeschoolers, we know it’s all about the individual child and not some pre-determined grade level. This book devotes several pages to each set of multiplication facts (x1, x2, x3, etc.) up to multiplying by 10, with mixed review as well. Perfect for a child who understand the meaning of multiplication and knows how to figure out simple multiplication problems but needs to build speed and automaticity with the multiplication table.
There are many more at Amazon’s entire selection of Kumon math books. Take a look if you need something to keep your kids going in math on days when a regular math lesson isn’t happening!
