Using math games and manipulatives in your homeschool can take math to a whole new level! Instead of being boring and inducing tears, your kids can understand concepts at a deeper level and actually enjoy learning math again. Listen in on my chat with mom and middle school math teacher Betsy Mays as she shares her best tips for homeschool moms.
Welcome to the show notes for Episode #112 of the Homeschool with Moxie podcast!
As a former classroom teacher, now homeschooling mom of five, I love to equip and encourage other homeschooling families.

Skin care doesn’t need to be complicated. We say no to chemicals, preservatives and fillers, and if we choose to add scent, we use essential oils. We have found that skin care products can be made with only the essential ingredients and not fillers that make the product less effective, more allergenic, and more problematic for the skin. Our products are even Keto-approved.

Betsy discusses how you can use simple everyday objects to help your kids understand their math.
While you could teach math with simple worksheets, manipulatives can help your kids actually see the math they’re trying to learn.
Here are some of the things we discuss on this episode:
- What are manipulatives?
- What are some of the downfalls of not including hands-on math activities in our homeschool?
- Are manipulatives helpful for all ages?
- How do different types of learners and kids with learning struggles engage with the content differently when they’re learning via textbook versus using manipulatives?
- Can you give us some examples of how we could use manipulatives to teach math concepts?
