Sneak Peek: Pattern Pizza Guys!

Happy Math and Music Monday!

I hope your summer is off to a great start! I still can’t believe that it’s been a full year of Math & Music Mondays! I’m also SO excited about our Heartland Emmy Nomination! To celebrate, ALL of our Math and Music Videos are FREE to watch on YouTube! So be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel (Ally Dog Depot –Link here)! This is an exciting week… we will launch to our website ( on WEDNESDAY (big thank you to all who voted) the 13th Math and Music Video and Activities! I am so excited about this month’s video because it combines one of my favorite things to eat and a SUPER important math concept… Pizza and Patterns! This one is A LOT of fun. We get to see Connor and Ally Dog as “pizza guys” making pattern pizzas! I can’t wait for you and your children to check it out.

Fun Fact

“Children learn from anything and everything they see. They learn wherever they are, not just in special learning places.” – John Holt

I love this quote! It’s so good and so true. Often, I forget that our girls are learning and watching ALL THE TIME! This is really amazing and scary at the same time. I’m not perfect at it… but by remembering this, I can work to do better. I also think this quote is encouraging and inspiring. We can make any moment a learning moment! Even things that seem simple or even not important ARE important!

I know I’ve 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.

The girls and I have some SUPER exciting things planned for our Math and Music Monday Summer Challenge. If you want to follow along… be sure to like and follow us on Facebook (Ally Dog Depot) or on Instagram (Math and Music Mommy). Trust me, you won’t want to miss it! I will post more later this week!

Ok, without further ado, let’s take a sneak peek in to the shooting of the The Pizza Guys Math and Music Video! Don’t forget to check back next week for some extension activities for the Pizza Guys Video!
