On Mondays I'm going to start posting some of our math activities from the previous week.
(This is mostly for my own record-keeping, but maybe some of you will enjoy seeing these posts as well.)
Last week he counted money with Math-Whizz:
We played Piggy Bank.
The players put money in the bank, but they can only do this in 5-cent increments.
The winner is the person who saves the most money.
(This is one of many games suggested in the book Young Children Reinvent Arithmetic.
I purchased this and other card games years ago from Vasha Rosenblum.
They can still be purchased online.)
He filled in a money graph to practice identifying coins (heads & tails).
He really enjoyed this activity and was excited for the "winners"--nickel heads filled a column first.
I made this game about 15 years ago, so unfortunately I don't have a link:
More practice on Math-Whizz:
He wrote numerals and counted to 100 by filling in a hundred chart.
Afterward, we practiced finding different numbers on the chart.
