Mexican yarn art. For our last project for this badge we made a rainbow shaped Mexican yarn art. You begin by drawing a design on cardboard. Cover the drawing with glue, then add different colors of yarn in all sorts of ways. We really had a lot of fun doing this. By making a rainbow, Shayla was able to make alot of the picture herself (after being shown what to do).
J is for Jonah.
Math: Addition. She completed 2 wkbk pages of basic addition. They used eggs and dinosaurs as counters. I also demonstrated on the whiteboard. I think she has a fairly good concept of addition, she can answer correctly, orally. But she can't write the answers. We constantly are reviewing how to form the numbers. She can do most letters independently, but not numbers, so I have to make dotted ones for her to trace. It takes us so painstakingly long to complete. UGH! I don't know if I should just allow her to answer orally and move on, or if we need to do like we're doing. Eventually she'll have to learn to form her numbers!
