april work

working with tangrams
making her own designs with tangrams
after matching all the color tablets, she made her own game. i would call out a color and she would tiptoe to it like a little old-school typewriter.
exploring geometric shapes
a benefit of multi-age learning: she doesn't know multiplication, but she got to experience the concentration it takes to do the multiplication bead board. she put every individual bead in its little hole. all 100!
the hundreds board requires much patience and concentration
four-digit addition using the addition stamp game
hand-made, one-of-a-kind mask and crown. sometimes a little creative art...
...makes it easier to concentrate on work: table setting exercises. getting prepared for an outing at a fancy restaurant.
practising cursive on lined paper. after she completes a line, she picks which letter she likes best.
reviewing arabic using the CDs
exploring multiplication with the multiplication bead board
grammar work: introducing conjuctions
