Are you a traveling homeschool family? Do your children love sports? If so, you can use sports while you are on the road to help your children build their math skills. One of the benefits to homeschool is you can easily supplement or personalize your child's math. As you travel to different places take your children to sporting events. Contrary to what many people think, watching sports is not a mindless activity. Teach them about strategies and planning and how it is such an important part of sports. You can have your child record the stats of their favorite players and teams. Also, have them make comparisons between players and teams. I assure you that a sports minded child would much rather work with these numbers than generic ones found in a workbook.
