Set 1 Word List:
Going through the list of words I was able to break up the cards into sets for various lessons in math and specifically geometry: Shapes, Angles, math facts, lines, etc... Once I had the cards separated I introduced the boys to sets of cards and had then tell me what they say on the card in a narrative setting, then read the actual word, and finally in many cases find something in our surroundings that illustrated that concept.
The cards are designed to cover a fairly large age range from 1st grade through middle school so we will continue to use the cards in a variety of activities. The $29.99 price tag at first seems steep, but as we began using them more and more I see a lot of value in these cards as well as a ton of other activities we can do incorporating the cards as we learn more about these math terms.
As a mixed method or eclectic homeschool Mom who dreams of having more Montessori style options for the boys, these cards have inspired me to think outside the traditional applications and begin working on more child lead hands on activities to incorporate learning more about angles, geometry, and even basic math concepts. My boys themselves have even gotten into the act, we are sketching out ideas that they would like to have on the shelves incorporating the cards as matching activities, conversation starters, etc...I love when a product inspires my boys not only to learn but to get involved in their learning.
The Schoolhouse Review crew reviewed these cards along with several other sets and their digital program.
