About Channie's Visual Handwriting & Math Workbooks
Our Thoughts on the Product
The pages are designed with a little grid for each math problem in order to better show how the numbers are supposed to line up. Something that is an issue when doing math on multiple digit math problems at our house!
These pages could be used to reinforce knowledge, or even to begin to teach what double digit math looks like. I like the idea of even using it as a quick "how many can you get done and correct in ____ amount of time."
Because we already do a LOT of math in our house, I decided to use these over MULTIPLE days. We did half a page a day. I let my son pick which problems he wanted to do. He is very good at math and always got 100% on everything he did---BUT this helped him work neater and faster.
We will continue to use this workbook. It's a good fit for our family. I think I WILL use it more as a "how many can you solve in 1 minute" fashion to speed him up with his skills. He never complains with it and even laughs at how easy many of his problems are. Because we are doing them in order, he hasn't gotten to the ones he really needs to work on--the subtraction problems with borrowing. I don't think I need to do these pages in order--it's just how I decided to do them.
The only thing that I would wish to see different--that these would be able to be hole punched and put in a binder. Because of the way they are printed you have to fold it over the binding--if you just flipped the page, it would be upside down. So hole punching them for a binder won't work.
If you need a handy little workbook for math that progressively increases in difficulty, AND covers both addition and subtraction, I recommend grabbing one for you own household!

Over the last several weeks we have been reviewing the One Page a Day: Double Digit Math Problem Workbook from Channie's Visual Handwriting & Math Workbooks. I encourage you to visit the other crew members to learn more about the other four books from the Channie's line that we are reviewing this week!
You can find Channie's on Facebook!
Thus far, I have heard nothing but good things from my other crew members about books from the Channie's line--Most of them are geared for ages PreK-3rd so there aren't any other ones that I myself can use (besides the math), but I'm sure there are some YOU might be interested in! So go check them out!
