Yes, decimal street. NOT Sesame Street. :-D Those of you that use Math-U-See know exactly what I am talking about. For the rest of you...here is a video explaining decimal street.
They already learned about decimal street in the Primer but it is reviewed in the first lesson of Alpha. I am taking extra time (I should have in the first place) to make sure they really understand the concept. They all love using the decimal street lapbook I made and the blocks.
Little E wanted to get in on the action too. Here is a video of his version of counting and then it ends with Big T giving his answer to the decimal street. (Never mind Big T reaching in front of Little E. He had to get his blocks to finish the problem.)
When Little E was done playing with the blocks he decided to do some detective work. Although I think I had more fun taking pictures of him with the magnifying glass than he did playing with it. LOL
Then Big T worked on his art while Sweet E was doing math. I think you can tell by the pictures that he started to get annoyed that I was taking so many. :-)
