Life Of Fred

I had heard about a set of math books called “The Life Of Fred” for a few years, but was waiting until both kids had mastered multiplication to start with the “Fractions” and “Decimals” ones (as is recommended). Recently, I learned there were now 10 elementary level books available! I ordered the first 8 so far. The books are great! They are chapter stories written about a five year old named Fred who is a math teacher at KITTENS University. As he goes about his day, he encounters math in all sorts of circumstances and also learns about the things and people around him. At the end of each chapter, there are a few short questions to answer before moving on. My son loves the story, is cool with doing the problems, and says he is going to read them all πŸ™‚

My daughter’s pages…she can’t help doodling.

My son’s pages. He likes to make them exciting with extra stuff as well πŸ™‚
