Comic Book Math ~ Fun-Schooling Journal: Adding, Writing & Subtracting Games

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

I recently stumbled across author Sarah Janisse Brown's Homeschool Journals and fell in  love with her simple approach to "fun schooling" that allows room for kiddos of all ages to explore their creativity in ways that work for their particular learning styles.

She has a fun option for journaling with math:

This Fun-Schooling Math and Writing Journal is packed full of fun activities to help children learn.  They will practice the skills they need to add, subtract, calculate, use logic, draw, write, and use their imaginations. This book is geared toward beginners as well as older children who struggle with basic skills or need to practice their math and writing while having fun. The math is not difficult or confusing. If you have a child who dislikes math, try this to spark a new love for numbers.
The characters in the book are fun and will remind your child of playing with Legos, robots, Mine-craft, pets, friends!

There are over 100 activities, games, and practice pages in this book to help your child learn.  Some games are designed for TWO people to play together. Almost all the activities are Logic-Based, that means that your child may not need very much help figuring out what to do on each page. The book is best for ages 6 to 11. Many of the games from "The Littlest Math book" are found in this book, but this is a much bigger size.

This book has wide margins and extra white space so your child will have lots of room to draw and doodle while figuring out the math mysteries! This book is designed to work well for Visual Thinkers and children with ADHD, Asperger's and Dyslexia. The goal is to inspire your child to find joy in numbers, writing, logic, drawing and creativity. While your child delights in this fun method of learning, he or she will be practicing basic math skills.

This is not an extremely rigorous math curriculum, but it is a fun supplement.  It can be a laid back choice for struggling mathematicians to build their confidence and a fun way to practice basic skills.
