Addition, Place Value and Symmetry

It just blows me away to see how much Annie can learn at such a young age. She is reading books, writing beautiful letters and diving into math. It is so fun and such a blessing for me to do this with her.

So this week we're still learning about place value, tens and ones. These place-value cards are so neat. I wish I would have used them with my second graders when I taught.

Today we picked these dandelions and incorporated lots of different concepts. We grouped them in tens, counted them by 2s, talked about the soil outside, danced with them, and Annie told a story about them. I love days like that...when it just flows.

Today was also the day we introduced the Geometry reflector and talked about symmetry. Annaliese cut out several different shapes and we folded them along their lines of symmetry, while also reviewing parallel lines.

I feel like we're finally getting back into a good groove with our schedule. Every day is definitely an adventure!! And sometimes a CrAzY one!!!
