Math games and signs

Evening all.

I sometimes think that as homeschoolers, we don't appear to "do" very much, which is far from the truth.  In fact we are learning from the moment we get up until we go to bed and I've no doubt we cram far more into our day than many kids will do in a week at school.

Today is no exception and we've had a busy day, playing lots of maths and literacy games.  That's one of the best parts of learning at this age (4); games that teach and kids that learn while they're playing, yet don't necessarily realise it.

Some of our games today included cut and stick counting/sequencing, with both numbers from 1-20 and sequencing in 10s up to 100.  We also played dice games, first with one die and colouring in the corresponding number, and then with two dice, adding the total, then colouring the right number.

Later, we played several domino games and completed some domino worksheets.  If you want to get your own freebie copies of all the math sheets we used today, head on over to the wonderful Moffatt Girls TPT shop.

We also played a digraph literacy game I bought from Angelina GrimesGraeme's TPT Shop.  This game is the "sh" and "ch" digraphs, and not only does it improve reading, there are opportunities for handwriting practice as well.  If I can find the time, I might also create a graphing exercise so we can incorporate math into our reading and literacy.

Meanwhile, housemate painted me a sign for the allotment.  My favourite colour is purple, and so the name is somewhat of a play on words.  Isn't it lovely?

I do hope you are all safe and well, and that UK readers in particular haven't suffered too much from the storms that have been battering the south of the country.

Until next time. x
