So, this week, we are doing a recap over EVERYTHING she has learned up until this point. We started on MATH!! Math is my favorite subject, so I thought it was fitting to recap with her on it!!
What I did for HOMESCHOOLING:
-- I had her count to 20 first!! -- She did just fine!
-- I then put out colored popsicle sticks on the floor (10) to have her point and say the number (VIDEO ABOVE) -- It was...interesting to say the least.
-- Her and I then went around the house and started counting doors. Everytime she found a door, she'd say, "1 door, 2 doors, 3 doors, etc." -- We did that over and over again until we reached 10. (I will do it to 20 next week)
-- We then went into her room and counted her baby dolls, stuffed animals. -- That was the best!! She kept giving them hugs as she counted them! :)
-- We then went to the flash cards and she called out each number as she saw it.
We had a BLAST doing this recap. Since she is only 25 months, she tends to get bored VERY easily, so I made sure to break it up and have her do different things to keep her interested. Worked out very well, folks! :)
What I did for UNSCHOOLING:
We decided to BAKE in order to learn more about math today!!!
-- We used ONE cup of flour (she scooped the flour out of the container and said, "ONE")
-- We used 1/2 cup of sugar (she scooped the sugar out of the container and said, "ONE HALF")
-- We used 1/2 cup of flour *yes again* (she scooped the flour out of the container and said, "ONE HALF")
-- We used ONE cup of water (she helped me fill the cup up in the sink and said "ONE")
-- We then mixed it all together and put it in a baking pan... Now, we baked it at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
As the 'flat bread' was baking, on paper, I wrote:
+(1/2 and 1/2)
I then explained to her that 1/2 and 1/2 equals one (which is something we will get into later in her homeschooling, unschooling and on the blog! :)
I then wrote:
I then had her count each one as, "One, Two, Three" -- She said, "Three! Three Ones!!"
How's that for addition??
We then took the bread out and it wasn't half bad!! :) HAHA!!
We had a blast and it shows!!
|She was happy to learn and happy to be done for the day as well! :)|
If there are any other ''tricks of the trade" that you know about, please let me and my readers know!! We'd love to get more information!! :)
