One of the major parts of making school work around here is including Leviah. She is eager to participate and while it’s sometimes easier to wait for naptime, I often feel she benefits nearly as much as Naomi from our daily ‘lessons’. If I can think of ways to adapt it for her, she generally responds with more enthusiasm than her sister which is a great influence…
Today one of our simple crafts was getting popsicle sticks beaned-up with the appropriate number of beans (like here). Naomi seems to really get math, and *loves* glue, so this was a no brainer for her.
For Leviah, I simply drew some circles all over a piece of paper and her job was to get a bean in/on each one. Then we played a similar game with shapes. She was really intrigued with this. Of course, making a mess with beans is always appealing.
I hope the petition goes well.
We did alot of bean play today too. 🙂 Your pics aren't showing up for me, but I'm glad Naomi enjoyed the bean-counting sticks!
me too, arianne! & Joy–looking into it! Thanks!
Now I have to comment again. I love Naomi's beansticks. I especially love how bunched 3-5 are and how spread out the others are. <3 Leviah looks like she's having a fabulous time! I signed the petition for myself & Paul. 🙂
Love the Popsicle sticks! We'll have to do this one.
i am slowly figuring out how to incorporate my 2 year old into everything i have planned for the 4 year old. it goes much more smoothly when i have something for both 🙂
