Fun monday math

Filed under: Learning moments — by dbmamaz @ 4:38 pm

I think I like Mondays.  We’re all fresh and rested from the weekend, and ready to get started.  And it looks like this morning was all about enjoying math!

Orion decided that since it was such a beautiful day, he would drag a table and chair out in to the sunshine, and work on his Life of Fred pre-algebra.

Wait, who is that, sneaking around?  Its Fluffernutter!

See, Orion doesn’t go to school by himself! 

For Raven’s part, he was finally ready to turn on the “Learning Resources Light ‘n’ Strike Math”, which I had bought as a holiday present in 2008

Of course, we’d lost the mallet, but we improvised.  This toy is a bit frustrating, because you have to wait for the right number to light up before you hit it, and then AFTER you get the right number,  you have to hit ‘enter’ (to allow 2-digit answers).  It also goes from level one, using numbers from 1-15, to level 2, using numbers from 10 – 99, if you get 10 in a row right . . . but level 2 was MUCH too hard, because it’s timed. 

Ok, this last one is not a great picture, but can you see that grin!  It WAS fun to get the answers right and be told Good Job!

And no, we hadn’t cleaned that room in a while . . .thanks for noticing . . .

  1. Looks like it was a math day :-). I have a friend who has that light n strike math game as well. I know that here it would be cause for much frustration.
