Trouble with 6 and 9

Jill Velicer’s 5 year old son keeps confusing 6 and 9, so they made some visual art projects for the ‘Yellow is the sun’ rhyme to help him remember.

We think this was a great idea so we thought we would share with all our RightStart™ users.

Thanks Jill!

“It’s spelled wrong, Mama!”

Young Anson, a precocious four years of age, was playing the Zero Game as part of RightStart™ Level A, lesson 16. Numbers from 0 to 10 & tally numbers of the same are on slips of paper, folded, and placed in a bucket.

Part way into the game, Anson picked out a slip, opened it, and stared intently at the paper for a long while. Finally, he said, “Mama, I think this is eight, but it’s SPELLED WRONG!”.

He showed the slip of paper. It showed 3 tally sticks to the left of the group of 5!

Love to Cut and Paste

A Twitter post we want to share!

We love @RightStartMath because we get to cut and glue :)

Valentine’s Day Applied Math

In a small school district in North Dakota, elementary students make Valentine’s Day card boxes to collect cards from their friends. Some students just write their name on their boxes, others go all out. Here’s what Kylee created.

Notice how she has the planets proportionate in distance and size? Hmmmm. Wonder if she used math? Good job, Kylee!
