Happy Math and Music Monday!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! Our day was filled with Church, spending time with family and lots of candy and plastic eggs! This is an exciting week because we will launch to our website (allydogdepot.com) the 12th Math and Music Video and Activities! I’m so excited about this month’s video because it combines one of my favorite things to do and a SUPER important math concept… Fishing and Counting! This one is A LOT of fun. We get to see Connor and Ally Dog use their counting skills while fishing in the fishing boat! I can’t wait for you and your children to check it out.
“Every moment is a potential learning moment!” – erin hines
I love this thought. I can tell you I am not perfect at remembering this… but if you stop and think about it, it’s so true. Every moment really is and can be a learning moment. I also love this when it comes to our mathematical concept for this month… counting! It is such an important concept for children to learn and can be practiced anywhere at anytime! It’s the perfect concept for the grocery store, “Let’s count the apples.” Or the car ride home, “Let’s count the red cars we see as we go home!” Or even while you are waiting in line somewhere, “Let’s see what we can find to count!” I promise it has distracted the girls many MANY times while waiting in line. It still amazes me how it can help change our current environment (and I do mean OUR – Mama included) while having to wait. It can save us from a meltdown and whining. I encourage you to give it a try this week! Oh, and don’t forget to share your great ideas with me. We are in this Mama thing together!
I know I have said it before, but our goal with these videos is for them to be used to set the learning environment and concept. Then it’s time to get off the device and learn and play together so that they really will understand the new learning concept. I hope you will keep that in mind when doing these activities with your children.
Ok, without further ado, let’s take a sneak peek in to the shooting of the Ally Went Fishing Math and Music Video! Don’t’ forget to check back next week for some extension activities for the Fishing Video!
Thanks for stopping by!
We hope you all have a wonderful Math and Music Monday or even a wonderful Math and Music WEEK!
