Here Alec is doing a math lesson. We use a variety of manipulatives for hands on learning and here he is using stones to make outlines of the numbers 0-9. We did a unit on the secret Land of Numeria and I told the kids several stories revolving around characters of this magical land. We packed some backpacks and made a map got in the car and drove around looking for clues (ie. numbers!) to break into the entrance of this mysterious land. Our Objectives with this unit were: Functional Math Activities, Money, Counting, Graphing, Predicting, and the 4 processes.
