Last year, I bought a dry erase board. It's a small purple rectangle. I like purple. I put it in the bathroom under our calendar. I didn't explain it. Every now and then, I write on it or draw on it. Then I leave it to see what happens.
Sometimes nothing happens. I erase it and put something else up. Sometimes it's a question. Maybe a math problem. Or a quote I like. (click to enlarge)
|We were reading a lot of teen fantasy that featured Death characters. That stirred a discussion about anthropomorphic personification.|
|I started this board with the seven times table. I was going for mathematical patterns. Sierra added the 4 and 6 times table visual math circle. The small circle is the 3 and 7 times tables. (See rightbrainmath.com )|
|I think I started this with the common x problems. Another homeschooler gave me the idea about writing a story using random words.|
|More fun with math.|
