Math: Worksheets, oh worksheets!

3 year 4 months old

Remember this schedule I made?
He loves checking it and deciding his own thing.
We'd already cycled, visited the playground and did messy play
but he was like, "It's okay, that one can do again"

 Double standard.

Recently, it was all about Math.
Since he is not attending preschool/kindy, he thinks worksheets are fun.

 I bought this book from MPH for about RM 20
I didn't know it is a bestseller when I chose it.
I just liked the concept and presentation.
Well, Tiger love it (Mighty good taste I have)
You can check it out here

Because it is so pricey, I wanted to recycle it for Dragon.
So, we use it with our Crayola Dry Erase Board & Daiso markers.

Here are some of his work.
As you can see, it is not too tough.

Simple counting

  I combined it with some counting abacus beads to make them more hands on
and to make it more concrete for additions.
Tiger actually hates it when I add stuff.
He thinks I am slowing him down :p
Too much right brain work??
He cannot write number 6 or 8 yet, so I write the answers for him.
No forcing allowed.


I created some simple patterning strips with stickers as well.
We practiced some scissors skills after that.

I have to limit him to 1-2 sheets per day.
His seriousness towards 'work' is not limited to homeschool time.
His attitude in BaoBei is the same.
He is almost done with Set A cards (about 100 words).
Not bad for a banana.
 It's just who he is. 
A boy who loves learning, words, and numbers.

If your child loves to play and find worksheets boring,
use your daily activities to reinforce numbers.
We count absolutely everything.
Trees, birds, fruits, money, etc.

If it's any consolation, Dragon girl will probably do zero worksheets.
Her attention span is as good as a fish's

She looked at this puzzle for 5 seconds before asking for....
.....this sticker activity that was included in the Halloween party pack.
After I laid it out for her, she took one look and walked away!

God, I hope she is really tall and beautiful when she grows up.
Please, please do not let get my shorty genes.
