Hands On Math

We are using MFW 1st grade and just love it! One area always had me a little intimidated from the start and that was their way of teaching math. No math book. I'm all about living books, but for math I've always wanted step by step instructions. It took me some time to wrap my thinking around hands-on math but now I think I get it. Today's review was simple and Jenna had fun.

This exercise explores the addition facts of the number 6. We had these little disc that are two sided. Take six of them, toss them on the table and make an equation out of what is showing. Simple and effective.
