Math Play

The girls haven't been interested in computation, math drills, or any sort of problem-solving work in a while. Instead, I see their little brains resting from all that heavy concentrated thinking and instead focusing on internalizing visual, spatial, and relational mathematical concepts.

That looks like this:

That plus a lot of painting, project-building, chess games, taking stuff apart with screwdrivers, testing physical limits on the playground, picture drawing, and constructing elaborate costumes out of play silks is what math looks like around here these days.
