We start by sitting all together on my bed or the couch or in the backyard (anywhere comfy) and they both have Math Journals. Their journals are run of the mill notebooks without spiral bindings since the spirals distract Tractor. They write & draw whatever they want while we very slowly read through the chapter. We take a few extra minutes at the end of each page for them to finish up what they chose to copy down in their journals and then move on - coming back to whatever they want after we finish the chapter. There are a few questions at the end of each chapter that we work on and answer in their journals.
For Chapter 1 we also worked on Math Family mini books (we plan to keep adding to these books) as well as Equation Building Cards that I found in the Target dollar bins.
We used the cards & 7 pennies to figure out the 4 ways you can use addition to equal 7 (I turned the - into + with a black marker to make room for 4 addition equations in ech house). Then we did the same thing with the numbers reversed to go along with the last question of the chapter.
We also made the clock that can be found at Thriving Third Graders.
