We dedicated the middle of our day to writing to Satori’s pen pals, which is fun handwriting practice. This has been an enjoyable hobby, even though not every pen pal that wants us to write to them writes us back. But the joy Satori gets from reading the postcards and letters is priceless. We did get a postcard from Spain, but no return address, please let us know your address so we can write you!

Satori drew some great dinosaur pictures on her letters. 🙂 Our most familiar one lives in Michigan, so we decided to send her a special treat. 🙂 We picked flowers last week, pressed them, and put them on a little board.

It turned out so cute, we picked more flowers today! They are now being pressed in some heavy books, and we hope to send these out to Aitlyn in Indiana tomorrow. Mama tried to identify the flowers on-line, but gosh, the flower photos on all the flower websites are pretty bad, it’s hard to figure out. The mountains are bursting with flowers though this time of year, so Satori and mom will take a hike this week to take pictures, identify them from our books, and post them.

Satori also wrote to her first international pen pal! A little boy named Tuva who lives in Norway. Of course she wanted to know where Norway was, so we pulled out the globe.

Since Satori covered place value up to hundreds last week, I splurged on this Dino Math Tracks game that people had recommended. The whole family played last night. We liked it! It is a good quality, fun, learning game. And it had the coolest dinos, how appropriate during our dino month.

The rubbery vinyl dinosaurs were a hit, Satori wanted to be all of them at one point. 🙂 You take your herd of either brachiosaurus, stegosaurus, triceratops, or wooly mammoth and race them across the screen. The four numbers dice corresponds to 1s, 10s, 100s, and 1000s places. Since Satori has only hit up to 100s, we only did the first 3 values. There are included math game cards, but they are more for advanced math players.

This game was by Learning Resources, and it looks like they have other math games. I look forward to playing Money Bags and Sum Swamp as well. 🙂
