Grandfather Tang's Story & Tangrams

Yesterday we read Grandfather Tang's Story by Ann Tompert. We got out our tangrams to recreate the pictures. This is a photo of the 2 fox fairies Alexandra and I made. Alexandra quickly grew tired of making the tangram pictures and wanted to act out the play. So, we acted it out... twice. She wanted to act it out again, but I was ready for lunch. We'll have to do it again sometime.

Another great book about tangrams we read is Three Pigs, One Wolf, and Seven Magic Shapes by Grace Maccarone. It also has drawings of how the tangrams go together to make various pictures.

In July 2006, we read The Warlord's Puzzle by Pilegard. It explains the Chinese legend of the origin of tangrams. Cute book.
