Here’s a simple & neat needle work project Lil Muallimah made:
Just cut a slit in the felt for the button to pass through Voila!
I found these really neat printable at 100 day Activities. Lil Muallimah got the easier ones Lil Muallim # 2 got the harder ones. They both like there continent dot to dot sheets.
I put Lil Muallimah ones in protective sheets and in a file to keep them safe and reusable.
Today I took Lil Muallimah’s out of the file to see if she could recognize her continents without tracing them first. Mashallah she got them all right, as she named them ans explained her observation, why she thought it was that continent. She described how she knew, giving details of the shape and surrounding. I was very impressed. The nomenclature cards and her big map really helped Alhumdolillah
Here’s what I mean
You’ve got to like the subtle element of Math (counting beyoind ten) while tracing the continents. Just the perfect out of the box Math activity Math on the Level style.
Right after Lil Muallimah finished coloring her World map, (see post here) we went upstairs to turn it into something cooler, our very own…………
We have played this way before two with the older ones, but those printed maps were played on and thrown after the wear and tear. This time I thought of sticking it onto a bristol board. Picking through our bristol boards in our stationary closet, I thought it would be much cooler if I stuck it onto blue bristol board. Now that way I wouldn`t have to colour in the continents, Phew! BUT……that meant I would have to cut around the continents. Sigh….. which I did but not around the smaller island parts.
