We have progressed on to the nummber 8/ VIII. Each day they are so excited to do the riddle and get closer to getting the 5 keys (the vowels).
I made up my own riddle for 8 today after DH and I pondered “What is 8?” last night! It was a fun way to get him involved.
I have 8 legs to carry me around
I live in corners and close to the ground
To eat, I must spin and I can jump
Don’t mistake me for a small bump– spider!
Then they drew the 8, VIII and EIGHT in the MLB with a nice picture of a spider.
I read a story from “Among the Meadow People” which I found on the Baldwin Project website and printed out for free! It was all about a little spider family and how the mother spider taught the babies (all 170 of them!) to spin webs.
I also want to share a heartwarming from Jen at Ancient Hearth, since we are doing the same Math Block!
