I just discovered Singapore maths and so far, I love the concept and it’s transformed Lady P! She is making great connections! I just bought the first textbook and workbook from Maths! No Problem! so I will let you know how they are and review them here!
Lady P used the tens frame in helping her understand addition facts. She made the connection between 8+6 and 10+4 by moving two different coloured counters around. I watched various YouTube videos by Maths! No Problem and found them interesting!
In the afternoon, we went on a homeschool trip to the farm! Over 130 home ed people showed up so it was great support!
The kids had a great time and enjoyed being outside all afternoon! They got a chance to brush ponies, feed goats, pet snakes and rats, feed lambs and play with new friends! It was a wonderful day!
I am creating an Autumn unit in my head, and doing activities with my girls focussing on the Fall season. (I say, in my head, because I am so disorganised and can’t seem to follow a routine).
My two youngest were sick at home with daddy while Lady P and I went for a stroll. We picked up leaves and brought them home. I drew an outline of a hedgehog on their paper and Lady P cut hers out while I helped Cheeky Girl. Then they glued down leaves for the hedgehog prickles. The result was lovely! The fall leaves are bright and beautiful.
Lady P wrote the word hedgehog on her paper and Cheeky Girl made marks, trying to write hedgehog. This activity took about 10 minutes. Tomorrow they will colour the face.
