Math Activities

Here was a quick math activity for DD. The princess bookmarks were from here.
It had been a while since LD did this place value activity, so I added this in to our other activities.  I really like the purple paper beads which I printed out from here. I bound 10 sets of 100s with a brad to make a 1000 bead bunch.  While we also have actual Montessori beads, I've used this set lots and lots. You can see in the picture that LD had to build the number by laying the thousands on the bottom, then 100s, tens and units.
LD did a number of other activities as well -- work in a math workbook, work with me with our Right Start Math curriculum and a math game (yet another round of Fast Track!)


  1. A great compliment is DreamBox.com It is an online math game that helps solidify math concepts for K-3 students. It also has a parent dashboard which reports on your child's progress. Check it out free for 14 days at www.dreambox.com

  2. I went and printed these out. I use Rightstart as well and I love these cards to go along with the manipulatives that we already use with Rightstart. Love the idea of the brad to make 1000.

    PS You have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award. You can check it out on my blog. I could not find an email address for you.

  3. Thank you Shelbz! I'm very touched! Our email address is the same as the title of our blog ending "at yahoo.com" -- feel free to write there as well! Kind regards, Liesl
