We did four math activities last week (the Bibliophile is 2 years, 9 months old) --
1. Counting Cars activity: see Counting Cars post and printable here.
2. Penny Toss Tally
3. Smarties Graph
4. I also made a "Which Number is Bigger" worksheet for him, asking him to circle the larger of two double or triple digit numbers. I thought he had been getting a little confused when bidding in monopoly lately (choosing a smaller number instead of a larger one sometimes), but he got them all right straight away. I realized as he was finishing it that I made the larger number second every single time. Oops. I don't think he noticed, though.
Thanks to the great suggestions on an earlier post this week, I put a bunch of MathStarts books on hold at the library this week, so I'm looking forward to checking those out. We also picked up a math workbook this week at the Dollar Store that we might use a bit in the boxes next week. I had some theme ideas (shapes - he knows the basics but not the fancier ones, measuring, addition, etc.), but I think we will probably take it easy and do another hodge podge "learning box" with Math this week.
Comment: What fun math/counting activities have you been up to lately, or are your favorites from the past?
