During our pretend play, lots of different scenarios came up, of course. Pictured below:

The strong wind blew through the neighborhood (showing the wind with hands while picking up a couple of numbers, or mixing them up). Oh, no! What happened? The mail carrier will not be able to deliver mail! Can we fix it?

We set up a little post office at the end of the drive way. Supplies used: paper and a pencil, toys to be delivered, a truck designed to carry a driver, a package, and a piece of paper.

Math challenges: writing down numbers, counting up and down the number line when delivering mail.

After mail delivery set up was cleaned up, My Firefly wanted to draw a picture of the pretend neighborhood.

Math challenge:
  • Color the roof of the second house green,
  • color the roof of the forth house brown,
  • color the roof of the house after the forth one red,
  • color the roof of the house before the second one black,
  • color the roof of the house that is in between the second and the forth houses purple.

As someone might notice, we are falling in love with challenges here. The next ones planned (hopefully) is Banana Math.
