Fun School, #math with blocks #montessori #homeschool
We do a Problem of the day at least 3 times a week with the boys as a together activity. Well recently the problem focused on the area of a rectangle and rather than just writing the problem I got out our 1/2 inch cube blocks and had the boys build the problem. After we figured out the problem, we did a few more. Then the boys decided to just build with the blocks for a while.
Cameron created a man with a dog and was very happy with his creation.
Nathan built a robot and had fun redesigning him several times.
I love that the boys can find so much joy in something so simple and use that joy to learn.
