Well, all I got done today was: church, vacuuming the entire house (and having to empty the canister 3 times), doing the dishes, 4 loads of laundry, mopping and finishing this math lap-book for Grace. Oh and my camera broke again, ARGH! It just got back to me the other day and it was still not quite right. Today the flash broke so now I have almost the same camera as crappy camera; one with no flash.
Here’s the book.
I found these cute folders at the $1 store and thought, ‘That would make a cool cover for a math lap-book.’ It does! Inside the first page is graphing stuff.
There’s a ruler, triangle maker, paper, stickers, and graph paper.
Next is the counting page with a number line and individual numbers.
Turn the page and you have a holder with some more tools and a booklet about the 7 days of creation. Opposite that are a fraction holder and money.
The fractions are 12 pieces of pizza, so you can make a 12 piece pie or 6 piece pie. I found them on a note card at our favorite pizza place Anthony’s pizza. I cut out the pizzas and they work great. The money is monopoly left overs. On the back of that folder are time and Roman numerals.
Inside the time folder are paper clocks with brads to hold the clock arms.
The last page holds tangrams, 2 sizes, and a paper that shows you 6 animals to make from the tiles. I might add geometry in there since we have the ruler and other tools for line making.
That’s it, tomorrow is the first day of Worship dance for all the girls and we’re excited!
