Number Book


I have been enjoying reading the Math book written by Melissa from A Journey Through Waldorf Homeschooling. At the very beginning she starts by sharing riddles that help to introduce the numbers. My little guy doesn't like to draw so I thought I would make him a number book using the riddles from the math book. Here are the pictures I have done so far. I have been having fun trying out my pastel chalks that I received for my birthday. They add a different texture to the picture. After each number is done I have been placing them in sheet protectors and then I'm going to put them in a binder so he will have his own number book. I'm hoping that as he sees me doing these drawing that it will inspire him to want to make some of his own. : )

We'll see. 148


Doesn't she seem surprised : ) The riddle from Melissa's book talks of being one of three and my little guy happens to be one of three boys. So we changed the riddle just a bit to fit him. 154 155

This is my picture of the four elements. The older boys were joking, wondering where the people were. They thought that fire needed to be watched over so it didn't go out of control. : )
