A Bit of RightStart Fun..

Math and Stuff

I was going through my photos for the past few weeks and found a few of our RightStart activities. I've received so many emails regarding this program, that I figured I should share them. (These were all taken during the first 10 lessons of Level A.)

We played "Concentration" (a.k.a. Memory) with two sets of cards. We used the abacus/bead cards and the tally mark cards. Robbie had fun playing this game and we will probably play many variations on it to keep the visualized quantities of 1-10 fresh in his mind as we move on.

I gave him a row of tally sticks (quantities of 5-10) for him to group as a "5 and _" and identify without counting. He is now a whiz at this. :)

Level A is not a worksheet-intensive program, but he did get to do his first RightStart worksheet a few weeks ago. It involved making tally marks.

These are the things we were working on before he went to my parents' house for a week. I'm very excited to see what the next lessons hold. :)

  1. Thanks for posting at Math Monday! ;)

  2. Great idea to use popsicle sticks to make tally marks. I'll have to give that a try.

  3. Thanks for posting about this. I decided to go with Singapore and Miquon but I will always want to do Rightstart. Do you have the games that RigthStart sells. I've been thinking of purchasing them but would like to know what others think of them.
