I have been looking for about an hour online for a good site for my 7 yr to practice her math skills. I'm having no such luck. If anyone knows of a site, fun and helpful, could you share please.. That's it thanks.

Try seaching primary math and homeschooling. Or 2nd grade math homeschooling. Throw homeschooling in there and you'll probably hit on a weatlh of resources.

thanks for the site konig-ov. she had fun with it.
I have been looking all day trying different things and really all I found was a lot to print off, that would would be dandy if I had paper! lol but she is have quite a bit of a ruff go with math and I need something fun for her to do. My hubby just gets mad when trying to help. and well I can say it I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box when it comes to teaching.

I think the hands-on learning method is a misconception. Most people will say they learn better by being hands-on. I think it is just the fun aspect. It is more fun to sit there and change something on a vehicle, rather than reading about it in a book. So you can spin this into every learning experience. By making anything fun, your child will enjoy it more and in turn provide better results. If a child were to see a page full of math problems, they would say aww man, seriously? But if they were to see those same questions attached to fun games and funny pictures, it would peak their curiosity just a bit more and try it out.
As a child I disliked eggs and pickles, so when my grandmother would ask me if I wanted a pickled egg, I turned my nose up at it without even trying it. Just like math, I disliked math so I turned my nose up at it. When my grandmother had told me, that they do not really taste like eggs or pickles, I tried it, and liked it. So sometimes kids will have things set in their minds not to try or do something, just from the way they think and act about it. If you put a spin on it, they will sink in to it.
My wife is not the greatest teacher as well, but when she is spending time without child she does put a different spin on subjects to make them appear that it isn't work, more so fun. So just keep making it fun for your child and keep the angry down (Your hubby), and your child will succeed!
