Pumpkin 1 has been into the constructive triangles lately.
She’s learning the names of the types of triangles but they’re tricky. She doesn’t quite understand planes yet for acute and obtuse. But she knows the equilateral triangle well and the right angled isosceles triangle.
She loves to see what shapes she can make on the light table with our plastic shapes too.
I picked this up from Well.ca in order to get free shipping for a few other things I needed. It’s been great for practise putting numbers in order. I’ll mix them up or leave one out and she has to put it right.
These are the colour grading peg people I made. Pumpkin 1 likes them better than the tablets.
I really like this material. It’s from IFIT. It’s amazing the difference a year can make. A year ago she struggled with this one but now she can do it easily. Unfortunately Pumpkin 2 thinks the cylinders are fun to throw. sigh….
Pumpkin 1 has been really into math activities lately but I’m trying to encourage writing. We worked the other day on writing letters on paper. She hates making mistakes so it’s difficult to get her to do something she thinks she can’t do perfectly. In the mean time I think I’d better get to work on making the golden bead materials.
