We have spent the majority of our time outside for the past several months, learning and enjoying. We have been on the museum circuit, reading, playing, and happening. It has been a great summer and fall.
It's getting cooler, and we are getting back to some greatly missed Montessori materials. We have been doing review with our Stamp Game.
We have been checking out static and dynamic(carrying and borrowing/regrouping) addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have been also getting into some decurian division (2 digit divisor).
I really love this video for stamp game division. We also skip count our tiles for practice and fun, because it's a lot of tiles!!
The stamp game lessons to this point are covered in Montessori Research and Development Mathematics 1. Montessori Primary Guide has amazing lessons also. There are many to be found.
Below Xander was learning to make divisors with skittles.
I purchased our game here, and a package of paper here. You can print lots for free or make your own paper also.
I made reference cards for each operation for Xander to have close by.
Here is a great set of operations nomenclature.
To see more of our work with the stamp game check out these posts Starting the Stamp Game! and Stamp Game Multiplication.
We have since created a printable Stamp Game Package that includes everything you need to create and play the game.
