Check out our finds:
We found angles everywhere. This bike has an acute angles (less than 90 degrees).
This Spiderman symbol has 1 line of symmetry. We checked to see if it had more...no luck.
The kids had fun counting faces on objects. Boxes are easy...6 faces!
They found 4 digit numbers and figured out each digit's place. What are digits? They are numbers to represent amounts. So here is a 4 digit number. The kids had to tell me: What number is in the ones place? tens place? hundreds place? thousands place?
My 7 year old said " Hey... a sphere is just a fancy word for ball".
Math is truly everywhere. Once you turn you child on to it.....it is contagious.
Have you ever wondered if there is a math equivalent to reading at night with your children?
I have too. My kids seemed to be learning about stories, characters, plot, vocabulary naturally because I was reading to them everynight. So naturally ,I started thinking...is there a math activitiy I could do a few nights a week before bed? Finally, it dawned on me. We could do something on the ceiling above their beds. So I started researching what find of skils and concepts that were benefical for all ages. This is how "Ceiling Math" was born.
