We've started working through the book World Book's Childcraft: Shapes & Numbers this week. We are both learning such wonderful things! The ideas are presented, and then there is a game or something hands-on to do.

Today we worked on polyominoes. You were supposed to cut out the various shapes from grid paper, but I'm so glad Alexandra thought of using these linking cubes! We made each of the 10 shapes out of 5 squares (or in our case, cubes) each. Then, we were supposed to make a rectangle that was 6 squares by 10 squares. We played and played with it and I finally had to look in the back and get the answer to all but the last 2 pieces. Alexandra was able to finish it. What fun!
