Brilliant Way for Kids to Understand Pi

Just a quick note for you this morning because I thought you might like this too. When I saw this, I just knew I’d have to share it with the kids! They have taken to memorizing π. (I think DD knows π to 31 digits and her best friend knows it to 50 digits (in two languages, she tells me!)! Um… I’m not sure why, but it’s impressive!).  The illustration below makes π so...

I’ll share it here for anyone who might find it useful. You can download the free Geometry Review Packet here: There are 6 pages, plus the answers. He used the Geometry, Grades 6 – 8 (Skills for...

Geometry Activities

Here are more of our geometry activities this past week or so: ED and DD worked with parallel and perpendicular lines. This is something that ED is also doing in her Right Start Math-A.  First, they made the lines with popcycle sticks, then found perpendicular and parallel lines around the house. LD and DD made a foldable about lines, line segments, intersecting lines, etc. for their math journal. Types of...

Geometry Cards (Free)

As I mentioned last week, we started a new unit on geometry. We’ve been busy talking about rays, intersecting lines, parallel lines, line segments, angles and more!  Over the weekend, I came across a set of geometry cards made by Homemade Montessori that will come in handy!  I thought I’d share this great find in case anyone else finds them useful. I am always so grateful to people who share...

Starting off our Geometry Unit 1

Starting off our Geometry Unit

This week we’ve started easing back into school. We’re not doing all subjects as we still have lots of other things going on (play dates, doctor’s appointments for their wellness checkups, trips with friends, activities, etc.), but we did start up with math and reading.  In math we’re starting the year with a unit on geometry. Geometry Mindmap: I read a book this summer that really recommends using mind maps...
