Addition Snake Game
Me Too has been working with the addition snake game. You may remember my post on the two styles of the snake game and their two positions in the addition memorization sequence. In our home we do it in both places. The first time, at the beginning of the memorization sequence, the child counts each bead on the bars individually with a counter and the game serves as a sensorial introduction to the addition facts. The second time, at the end of the memorization sequence, the game serves as a celebration of the now-learned facts and a review for the subtraction snake game that is about to begin the subtraction memorization sequence. This second time the child does not count the beads individually but pulls forward two bars at a time creating an equation that he can answer.
Me Too likes to create VERY LARGE snakes.
He is spending most of his remaining hours in the day trying to get his very loose tooth out.
