Fun with Math

We did a couple of fun math activities this week - both were inspired by Alexandra. First, she was working on fractions and turned one of her figures into a cube with a face. This gave me an idea to teach her how to draw a cube. She caught on quick and even drew some cute hands & feet. So, we made this cute little cubes all over our dry erase board.

I'd also bought some flash cards this week that were story problems. She came up with a tic-tac-toe game. On your turn, you're asked a question. If you get it right, you get to take a turn! But, she made the tic-tac-toe game out of stick pins (with cardboard under the "game board"). I thought this was clever, fun, and colorful!

I remember learning how to draw "cubes" and I distinctly remember drawing them all over the bulletin/program during church services, Sunday after Sunday. I hadn't thought of that in years!

Love the Tic Tac Toe game idea. She is very clever!

What a little genius! I think I'll try this game this coming week for our Math day. Did she get to ask you Math questions, too? And did you impose a time limit for figuring out the problems?
