Yellow is the Sun

Today was a big day for us!   Jenna, (23 months), laid out all of the sticks in the correct order 1-5 while we sang “Yellow is the Sun” together.  This is a song from the Right Start Math curriculum.  She even held her hand out when we sang the line “My whole hand makes five”.  I’ve modified the words a bit to make them more meaningful to Jenna.  “Yellow is the sun, Jenna shows you one” etc.

Of course, when we got to six she wiped all of the sticks away!

We shelled out $5 to buy the book, but you could do this activity for free at home because the music is posted on the Activites for Learning website:  http://www.alabacus.com/pageView.cfm?pageID=309  I guess I should think about buying the Level A teacher’s guide in the next six month or so.

    She might be ready for many of the MEP Reception activities soon (you’d have to wait on the fine motor practice ones). It is easier than Right Start A and has the advantage of being free.

    We *LOVED* MEP Reception. Did you take a look at the Lesson Plans or just the workbook? You really need both in order to do the program properly.

    MEP Yr 1 we didn’t like as much. I got through most of 1A before DS asked to switch to Singapore like his big sister is doing.

      Hmmm… I just saw the online lesson plans. Maybe I should at least give it a few weeks try with Jenna. I’ll see if I can organize this over the weekend.
