Ring Toss Maths: Big Numbers Addition & Multiplication .

.

Time to do some multiplications (instead of the memorising way which he's not keen yet) & harness mental calculation skills. .

.

We started off with smaller number multiplications & gradually increasing it to bigger numbers. .

.

He learnt the 2 abbreviated ways to write 'feet' & we talked about strategies to score better - stimulate that li'l brain of his to think! 😂 .

.

This game also harness his comprehension skills where he had to read the scoring rules first before playing. .

.

And guess what....we did 45min of Math without a dull or whiny moment!! .

.

I love turning our toys into teaching resources! 😊 .

1hr+ of non-stop advance (this is beyond his age level but we decided to still give it a go) #maths lesson at #starbucks . We did some #revisions on #placevalue too. . .

This was an #impromptu session as the dad inserted a last minute meeting. I thought he did awesome! I doubt we could do Maths this long in one stretch at home. Lol... . .

Maths game to harness his mental computation skills. This is also a game of strategy ~ it required some thinking on where he placed the counters.

.

GAME INSTRUCTIONS: .

1. Throw the dice & add up the numbers .

2. Look for the number which, when you add it to your dice total, adds up to 20 .

3. Whoever gets to place 4 counters next to each other in a row first wins the game .

Learning about #measurement #unit with #usbornemeasuringthings - #volume : #millilitres & #litres

.

We had 5 containers of < 1L in volume & 5 containers of > 1L in volume. D had to use a 250ml #measuringcup to fill up all 10 containers, #estimate how much more was needed to fill the containers & #record down the volume. He then #ranked them from the greatest #capacity to the least capacity.

.

He learnt how to #convert ml to l using the "Bouncing Decimal" (my own term). He said, "Mami, I like this bouncing decimal division. It's so easy!". 😁

Week of Division: this is a build-up to starting him on "Big Boy's Way" of fractions division & a revision on some commonly used division #vocabulary . The #decimals are just #additional learning for him.

.

It's getting a li'l challenging to use arrays or counting cubes as the division numbers get larger. #goodluck to us! 😂🤣

Maths & Business (self-initiated) thru play.

.

Today's a light #homeschooling day so we get to engage in a few #funplay activities.

.

He set up his #icecream store & came up with purchase combos. He had a niche in his business - #prata ice-cream. (Prata: Indian pancake)

.

We did #mentalcalculations throughout the play - double digit #subtractions & triple-double digit subtractions. Very good attempt on the latter, I must say! 😁

Unit of Measurement: Metre .

To give him a visual understanding of how long an Australian freshwater croc can be, I had him drew it.

.

Can you guess how long is it??

.

.

.

.

.

We had a 3m long croc in the house!

.

He let out a big 'WOW' upon completion, & was so excited that he decided to swim inside its tummy! Lol..

Multiplication & Division Week ✖➗

.

PART I: Work out answer manually, stick the correct dot & cross check by doing the array.

.

PART II: Figure out how many objects in a group to get the answer & stick the correct dot.

.

PART III: Spot the mistake (27 ÷ 9). I did not tell him there was a mistake. He spotted it pretty fast & said, "Mami, you're wrong here!". 😂

.

By doing the groupings, it's also #multiplication revision. Win-win exercise! 😂 .

When skip counting ain't the way to go anymore.... He liked it when I said it's the big boy's division way. The ego felt good I reckoned. 😂😂

.

I've decided to introduce him this technique as the division numbers get bigger. He's grasping it well so far.

.

This is the beauty of #homeschooling - I can start him off with any kinda learning at any given time, even with advance learning materials. Great if he can handle them; no pressure if otherwise. Cos with homeschooling, we can tailor-made the teaching to suit him (what works best for him) & pacing it along the way!

#mikado pick-up sticks - one fun way to get their li'l brains to work on some mental calculations as they tabulate their scores at the end of the game. It's also a game that requires quiescence skill & concentration - good training on these skills too.
