Math Fact Fiesta!

This website offers a thematic math lesson based on Cinco de Mayo and designed for classroom use. When you get to the site you can read the lesson objective, and suggestions and procedures for how teachers can introduce the material to their students. Much of what is offered can be “tweaked” for homeschools — or it will just provide some ideas for how you can teach a math lesson for any ability level, by introducing and using Spanish words for numbers. If you plan to do that, you might want to visit a site that offers
