Math & Music FUN at Home!

Happy Math & Music Monday!

I hope your Monday is off to a great start! Wow, what a crazy time we live in right now.  At this point, I think most of us are at home taking care of our precious and crazy children.  And if you’re like us, it looks like we’re going to be at home for a while.  So, never fear… Your Math and Music Mommy is here and ready to help!  

I have to admit that I’m a little excited for all the fun things we have planned for the next few weeks.  I think it’s important to keep the learning going and I know we can do this together! You won’t want to miss this week’s blog! I hope and pray you find this helpful and that it makes this crazy time a little less crazy and lots of fun!

Fun Quote

“Boredom…it’s a choice.” – mathandmusicmommy

Yes, that’s right…I love this quote and say it to our girls whenever they say, “I am bored.”  It’s the perfect quote for this week’s blog.  I know parents around the world are hearing this very thing right now, and I truly believe it’s a choice.  There is ALWAYS something to do or work on.  So, in my opinion, boredom is a choice.  I also think it’s not a bad thing… whenever the girls think they are “bored,” that’s when some of their best ideas come to them!  While I am totally OK with “boredom,” I also believe in setting up our girls for success.  With all the quality time we’re facing with our children in our homes, I think we need to have some activities ready.  These will not only keep the learning going, they will also provide a “change up” to the day.  I hope you will join us for some Math and Music Fun!

Over the next two-weeks (at least) our girls will be home.  So what better opportunity to have some Math and Music fun together!? I am really excited, and I hope you will follow along and join us!  We will have a different “Video of the Day!!” with downloadable activities and extension activities.  Each activity is easy to do and will keep your child’s learning going from home!  I also think, if you have older students at home, they can become the “Teacher” and help/join in too!  It’s fun for the whole family.

This week we will focus on the following videos:

Thursday: “Kangaroo!”                                   Learning Concept: Steady Beat  

Friday: Math and Music LIVE!                        Learning Concept: Extension Activities

Each day we will focus on one of the above videos, do the activities, and then add some fun extension activities!  I have to say, I am the most excited about FRIDAY!  On Friday we are going to have a LIVE ZOOM Math and Music Class with anyone and everyone who wants to join us!  I have had the privilege of testing this with some students this year, and it has become one of my favorite things!  SO, please let me know, by emailing me (erin@allydogdepot.com) or commenting on a post, that you are interested, and I’ll be happy to send you the link! 

As you can see, we have some fun things planned this week.  I hope you will join us! We can do this together! I want to help anyway I can.  IF there is anything I can do, please let me know! I hope to see you ALL on Friday!

Don’t worry…we will also still have some SUPER Fun things planned this week! Be sure to follow us this week on our Facebook Page and Instagram! You won’t want to miss it.
