#Math activity Thursday with 3D shapes! Plus Google's Take your kids to work day : )

Happy Thursday! Sorry to post this late today...  Enjoy today's Math activity Thursday!

I was super busy today because it was National Take Your Children to work day at the Google LA office. My husband is lucky to work there, so we go every year, but this year was special because I got to be a presenter!
I wasn't allowed to get any photos with kids in it but we had a super fun time working with The Pancake Menu and play money. So much that when we got home my little kids still wanted to play and make pancakes with the leftover batter I had...

  And I decided to get a little bit creative and make an interesting flower...
I'd love to hear what you think of the 3D shape video! Take care : )

#Math Activity Thursday making a Rekenrek & Congrats to the giveaway winner!

Hello everyone!

It's Thursday and that means it's Math activity Thursday! Today we are making a Rekenrek, a great tool to help teach your kids the numbers 0-20 and assist them as they add and subtract smaller numbers.


Have you ever made a Rekenrek? Here is the link to a neat resource that helps you know how to teach number sense with it: https://bridges1.mathlearningcenter.org/media/Rekenrek_0308.pdf

Also, I wanted to congratulate Peggy Bohn! She is the winner of last weeks giveaway! Contact me Peggy so I can get the book in the mail to you : )

I've heard from a few people about their thoughts about M.a.Th.s videos. I'd love to know what you think.

Have a great day!

New fun video today! Math activity Thursday with Play Dough--10 ways to have Play Doh be a #math activity!

Hello,

I'm so happy with how my video turned out! Are you a Play Doh lover? I know... some parents despise it since it can get all over, but it can be such an awesome tactile tool to use for math activities!


I also shared these ideas in my talk for the Great American Homeschool Convention last year, but here I am showing you the 10 ways to make Play Dough math oriented : )


What do you think? Have you ever used Play Doh to enhance your math activities?
