Playful Learning

After the hectic weekend of birthday revelry, Monday morning was looking pretty grim. The natives were restless and extremely resistance to doing anything that remotely resembled "school". So I threw my lesson plans out the window and broke out the games. I have to thank Kat from Stuff on My Blog for this wonderful M&M math activity. We graphed each color of M&M comparing the quantities and making simple word problems based on color distribution. We also used the M&M to construct patterns, practice skip counting and illustrate basic multiplication and division. You have to love school supplies that are edible!


 
We also played sight word bingo and phonogram bingo. I called each sight word and phonogram out to T who than had to locate them on his bingo card. O was very determined to join in the fun. To facilitate this after I had called out the word/sound to T, I placed the card in front of O and she would search for the duplicate word on her bingo card.

We rounded out the day with some read alouds and T reading a Star Wars book to me. Did the day go as planned....No.  Instead we had a day filled with laughter, fun, and learning....Score!
