Ride the Math Train!
Inspired by Katherine Marie's domino robots, I created an addition train for E this evening.
Each car held two dominoes, perfect for adding together vertically. (C'mon, you know you're jealous of my mad drawing skills!)
It actually took me longer to draw the train then it did for E to finish the problems. You can almost see her little wheels turning...
The Boxcar Children Books by Gertrude Warner
It's a week for classics! Do you remember these? I believe this was my first introduction to reading chapter books on my own. I must have been six or seven years old, but I still remember the story of four orphaned siblings and their adventures while living in a boxcar. The books are wholesome, exciting, and a perfect introduction to chapter books.
I just ordered the set of four for E. I plan on reading the first one outloud to her at bedtime and letting her enjoy devouring the rest on her own.
