Will Learn Times Tables for Ice Cream...

I felt that Gizmo and Spike needed to work on their multiplication facts a bit this year. Gizmo has had them down pretty good in the past, but Summer break does take its toll, and a refresher course never hurt anyone as far as I know. Especially when the reward for doing so is a banana split. For each set of times tables that they pass off to me, they get to color that corresponding portion of the worksheet. Every number has a designated item, whether it be a scoop of ice cream, a banana, or even the bowl. Since Princess is learning her numbers, she gets to color the numbers that she has mastered. I have heard of similar ideas to this before, but didn't see anything online. What is a homeschooling mom to do? Draw one, of course. This was the result...

The date for our Sundae Party is October 15 and they can have whatever they have earned, so I am excited to see if they will be able to do everything.
