Lots of Math Manipulatives! A glance at DDs work.
Here’s a quick glance DD’s math work for the day (she just turned 5). I had her set up the numbers. She counted from 10 to 100 several times before I had her build double-digit numbers.
|I put a large handful of tiles in front of her and asked her to figure out whether there were an odd or even number of tiles (meanwhile, ED is making a tower!!). Also, next to her foot you can see the tally sticks. We worked on tally sticks from 1 to 9. She also had to slide over 1-10 beads. We’re working on her visualization of 6 as 5 and 1, 7 as 5 and 2 etc. There’s a song that goes with that (from Right Start Math) that she’s been learning.|
|Here she’s counting by 2s to 20. (The tiles were left over from another activity.)|
