100-Chart

Feb 24

I took these pictures a few weeks ago, but I want to get more posts of us using our curriculum in action. So the next few weeks, look for updates on how we’re doing in all our favorite programs! I then tag our curriculum by its abbreviation I use. So all Math Mammoth posts should have this link: http://satorismiles.com/tag/mm

In Math Mammoth 1-B, you’ll be doing a lot of 100-chart and place value work. These have actually really helped Satori lately, she now has another tool aside from her abacus to think of numbers. The way she’s been talking, I know she’s got this 100-Chart in her head now. Here’s a sample page of work she did a few weeks back.

Since she totally loves hands-on, mama-daddy-interaction, I knew this floor Hip Hoppin Hundred Chart Map (by Learning Resources) would be a hit. Before you use it, let it AIR OUT for like a month somewhere. We had lots of fun playing with her number mat, and she wants it out everyday now. She teaches Daddy math on the weekends with it as well. 🙂

Back to Math Mammoth, here’s an online math game that Maria (creator of Math Mammoth) linked to on our sheet. At first it took Satori a long time to figure out where the numbers were on this blank chart, but after some practice, she’s a real pro now.

Play it yourself here! Find the 10 hidden bones on the 1-100 number square in less than a minute.

I purchased our current science program (RSO Life) long before we started using it. It was the Animal Kingdom portion that delayed me – you’d be getting your hands on little creatures like worms and snails and roly-polies. I was a little squeamish. We don’t have easy access to such creatures way up in high altitude dry climate. I also never hurt a living thing, and even though the program doesn’t have you dissecting or hurting animals, I don’t even feel right just borrowing them from their natural environments for a time.

So we’ll see how we get through the next few months in our animal study without actually keeping worms and snails as pets. We’re going to rely heavily on books, videos and zoo trips. We have some great places near us – Butterfly Pavilion, Downtown Aquarium, and Denver Zoo just to name a few.

So digging into the program, RSO had us do a classification exercise to demonstrate how difficult it can be to classify living things. They had Satori classify 12 Blobonians using her own judgement. Then, a scientist who had observed these Blobonians in their natural environment was able to classify them successfully and gave us a flow chart for us to do it correctly. Of course, it did not match up to our original sorting. (We used our dry-erase table for this exercise, love it! Thanks Grammy and Grampa.)

This just drove the point home that sometimes even though living things may look alike, we may learn more about them and have to re-classify them. Anemones and corals are an example of this. At first we thought they were a plant. Then we realized they were actually animals.

We watched Discovery Education videos to learn more about the Animal Kingdom, classifying living things, and then Invertebrates. Today we watched a video about Cnidarians, our first animals we’re learning about.

Just yesterday I started using the Discovery Streaming StudentCenter. It is super easy to use, and Satori now has her own login (no extra charge to your subscription). She was very excited to login herself and see what assignments she had.

She really enjoyed the video with King Philip to learn about the Classification of Living Things. We had to watch it twice and I’m sure she’ll ask again this weekend. 🙂
