Maria's Math News, March 2018 
Hi again and happy spring! In this edition I have:
1. Math Mammoth newsIt's the traditional Math Madness Month at Homeschool Buyers Coop... and you can save up to 50% on Math Mammoth bundles! The coop is running a GROUP BUY once again!

2. Multiplication dot cards (free printable)Some of you might like these multiplication flash cards with DOT arrays.I like the idea! They could be used to teach beginning multiplication with the answers intact, and later on, cover the answers for memorization/learning practice, but either way, the dots remind the student of the CONCEPT of multiplication. 
3. Once Through the Deck review gameNeed a quick and easy way to have your child/student(s) review math facts?All you need is a deck of cards (for each student). The student flips through the cards, adding the same number to the number shown on each card OR multiplying the number on the card by the same number (chosen beforehand). For example, a child might practice the multiplication table of 7, and therefore multiply each card by 7. Hat tip to Denise for this Once Through the Deck game. 
4. MORE videos for 5th gradeI've been editing 5th grade videos lately, so several have been added to the list, such as about:

5. A study order for the Blue Series booksMany people use Math Mammoth BLUE Series to help their children catch up if they are seriously behind.

The choice is yours, and lots of flexibility... but to help you get some idea of what goes where in regards to grade levels, this chart can help. Thanks for reading!
