Telling Time with Spielgaben

Telling Time with Spielgaben      

{We were given the Spielgaben set and workbooks to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

Recently we shared about the new Spielgaben Math Workbooks, if you haven’t read that post, start here to learn more about the workbooks! As soon as I opened our package of books I knew these would be a great tool to have on hand for reviewing certain math concepts. Little did I know that we would need them right away!

Have you ever had a child forget a concept you are certain you taught, and taught WELL? At least you thought you taught it well. This happened to me recently when my daughter confessed her struggle with telling time. I was a bit surprised honestly but soon realized it is because her world is full of digital clocks and I hadn’t done a great job of keeping analog clocks around. Our schoolroom clock on the wall came down who knows how long ago {dead batteries} and I forgot to put it back up. Upon learning this information from my daughter, I immediately got out a few of the Spielgaben Math Workbooks and looked up the pages on time. I pulled out book 3, 4, and 5 and found great pages to use in each. The photo below is from book 4.

We began with the pages in book 3, to do some basic review. Because I love the hands-on aspect of Spielgaben so much, we made a clock to use during the lessons. We had made a clock similar to this one before {remember I HAVE taught her her this!} but I couldn’t find it.

She used the clock we made to work in the workbook and it was a great way to review.

In the hopes of keeping her time telling skills sharp, I have assigned pages from the Spielgaben math books to keep her practicing a couple of times per week. We will also be getting our clock back up on the wall. Winking smile

The Spielgaben Math Workbooks are such a great way to extend learning with the Spielgaben set! I will definitely be using them as we move along, bringing in the hands-on aspect of math that I love so much.

Playful Learning with Spielgaben–New Math Workbooks!

Spielgaben Math Workbooks

{We were given the Spielgaben set and workbooks to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

It has been awhile since we have shared about Spielgaben so if you aren’t familiar, click here and see our very first post to see how long we have had the set! Spielgaben came on as a blog sponsor many years ago and I am honored to be partnering with them again!

Spielgaben has an exciting new addition to their shop – Math Workbooks! We were sent the complete set to review and I will be sharing over a few different posts to give you an idea of what you could do with them and how they could benefit your homeschool.

Spielgaben

First, the details.

Spielgaben Math Workbook is a mathematics activity book series for students from Preschool to Year 6. The series is based on National Australia and UK curriculum, which is very similar to the US. You will notice some language and spelling differences, but nothing that is a problem. Mainly just some word choices that differ.

The content has been carefully sequenced within each year level and across the series to take into account children’s likely mathematical development. The books are meant to be used alongside of your Spielgaben set, allowing for your investment to be used even further!

Spielgaben-8

I have browsed through the workbooks extensively and love what I see. Hands-On learning is my favorite and these workbooks give you clear ideas in written format with invitations for hands-on play.  I set up some examples to show you what the lowest level “P” workbook looks like and how the Spielgaben toys fit in! The P workbook is intended to cover Preschool/Kindergarten and is FILLED with learning activities! Below is just a small sampling!

Matching and Patterns…

Addition with Partitioning…

Stay tuned, I will be sharing more ideas for using the new math workbooks and peeks inside of the different levels. If you have young kids and are looking for a fabulous resource that will be an investment that will last for many years and through many kids, Spielgaben is definitely it! The free-play alone that stems from this amazing set is of incredible value. My kids have spent hours upon hours playing with and learning with Spielgaben, and still do!

Organizing Data with Spielgaben

Organizing Data with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

I love flipping through the Spielgaben guides to find something new my daughter would enjoy. It isn’t hard to find a simple lesson with so many great ones to choose from! This one was really fun! It’s called “Find Friends” and focused on organizing data.

    2018-01-23 (4)

Making the little people was fun. Definitely an idea I would have not thought of on my own! Using clear tape on top of the pieces allows you to draw the faces with a Sharpie and peel the tape off later!

Spielgaben-3

We began with simple sorting, boys in red and girls in purple.

Spielgaben

Then I told her to put the people with yellow hair in one circle. Then I asked her to put people with glasses in the other circle. Uh oh! One of the girls with yellow hair has glasses too! This led into the discussion about the “both” category in the middle.

Spielgaben-2

After I had explained the concept, I challenged her to come up with a sorting rule and explain it to me!

Spielgaben-4

I drew more Venn diagrams for her to show her how we can use these to sort. We have done this some in the past but it was a great review! To close the lesson I created a blank Venn diagram on her Boogie Board for her to fill in all about her and her brother!

Spielgaben-5

A very fun lesson!

Types of Triangles with Spielgaben

Different types of Triangles with Spielgaben Math

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

Sometimes I align our Spielgaben lessons with her main math curriculum and other times I choose a totally different topic! As I was flipping through the math guide I came across the lesson on types of triangles and thought she would enjoy learning about that!

Spielgaben

   

I introduced four different types of triangles, all included in the Spielgaben set. Equilateral, right angle isosceles, obtuse isosceles, and right angle scalene were the ones we focused on.

Spielgaben-4

We discussed the difference between the types of triangles and also the names of the types of angles in each. It was a great lesson and she learned a lot!

Spielgaben-2

We played simple games together, focusing on sorting the triangles correctly. In the end, I took away the visual reminder by folding the notes up to just show the names.

Spielgaben-3

I love doing hands-on math lessons with her and she gets all excited when I bring out a new Spielgaben math lesson!

Fraction Fun with Spielgaben

Fraction Fun with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

I am going to be super honest with you today. I am so thankful that I am hired to write a blog post sharing Spielgaben activities with you. Why? Because the hands-on learning is SOOOOO good for her and my lazy self might ignore doing this if I didn’t have to. There have been seasons of life where I have been a rock-star with hands-on learning and curriculum extension, but this year we are just getting the basics done. When I pulled out this lesson for her to extend her math she beamed with joy and begged me to play over and over again.

She is reviewing fractions in her math and it’s always something that is easily forgotten in the early elementary years. We played a game to reinforce basic fractions.

Spielgaben (3 of 3)

Using a sticky note as a base, the challenge was to roll the cube and place the correct fraction piece on the square paper. Once the paper was covered, we had a winner! Before playing I created a cube with different fractions on it to match the 1/4, 1/2, and whole pieces we had.

Spielgaben (1 of 3)

I also created a second cube without pictures, which we played with second. This was much harder as there wasn’t a visual reminder for which piece to grab.

Spielgaben (2 of 3)

See a bit of our fraction fun in action in the video below…

This was a fabulous game to play for fraction review and also just to see her smile and hear her giggle.
