 Playful Math with Spielgaben December 2015

Lessons We Enjoyed

Spielgaben is a wonderful addition to our 1st grade math curriculum.  For now, I am choosing lessons based on her needs.  She has mastered many 1st grade level skills so I knew she didn’t need a full 1st grade curriculum.  Spielgaben is a great fit for her right now!

Each week I choose lessons or worksheets for her and write them into our lesson plans.  Yes, this takes a bit more time than following a pre-written math curriculum, but I want her working on what she needs and will enjoy. I wouldn’t have been as confident in doing this years ago, but now I am after homeschooling 2 other kids at this grade level!

Worksheet Set 8, Level 3, Activity 1 ~ Happy Birthday

We had fun with this activity although it was easy for her. She had to look at the candles and guess what size stick would match the candle size.

We expanded the worksheet by bringing out the play board. She enjoyed putting the sticks in size order on the board!

This worksheet focused on looking at one long stick and deciding how many smaller sticks it would take to equal the long stick.
