My son wants to master his multiplication tables, especially for bigger numbers.  We are using both the Chinese/Singapore math (abstraction) method and Montessori when it comes to mastering his mathematical skills. For Montessori, though we have the Multiplication board, Mavi prefers using the colored beads as these keep him engaged and he thinks that they are more “fun”.  With this, I am so excited to share the learning materials we use to aid his mastery of multiplication using extension activities that goes perfectly with the Montessori colored beads.

These learning materials were very helpful, and my son enjoyed working on the extension activities.  The best thing about these learning materials is that they grow with your child and you can print them again and again so your child can practice each multiplication table through the years.

Sharing some updates with regard to my elementary boy.  Though it may seem that I’m posting a lot about preschool activities, in the background my 9 years old is doing a lot of work too in math, geography/history, and science.  Now, one of the things he worked on last year was his fractions.  After working fractions and fraction equivalence, Mavi worked on addition and subtraction of fractions.  He did very well on this.  With one simple presentation, he grasped the concept right away, and after which he did a lot of practise using our fraction cut-outs.  Somehow, I find this straightforward, meaning if your child knows about their basic addition and subtraction they can breezily work on this and move on to multiplication of fractions or working with unlike fractions.

My 8 year old Mavi is into sharks nowadays and asked if we can do a study about them. The last time we had a shark study was years ago, when he was 4 years old and this time he wanted to use our Shark Anatomy Model which he recently bought. This is Vito’s very first shark activity and he had so much fun learning with his big brother.

While Mavi is enjoying his school camp, I grabbed the opportunity to make this learning material so we can use it in the next few days (when the camp is over) before he goes back to school at the end of April.

I'm so happy that my laminator arrived yesterday and I was busy laminating these cards (thus my absence in blogging).

This is my Animal Kingdom learning material.  It is a PDF file which you can download from here, The Animal Kingdom Learning Pack, or by clicking the pictures below.  It consist of the following:
• The Animal Kingdom MASTER Chart in A4 SIZE
• Chart with pictures only (no labels) in A4 SIZE
• Chart with labels only in A4 SIZE
• Chart with no pictures and labels in A4 SIZE
• 15 cards with pictures and labels  to form the chart
• 15 cards with pictures and  no labels (for 3 part card use)
• 15 label cards (for 3 part card use)
• Matching definition cards

Oh they look so lovely once laminated! Don't mind the lines on that image of the starfish.  That's just my printer who's already low on ink :(

So the file has 9 invertebrates and 5 vertebrates and they all come with definition cards that you can read with your kids (or let your kids read them if they are already a reader).

Hope you like it! Thank you!
