A Math Block

I have some catching up to do on my homeschool blogging! Back in January we did a short math block for both Robin & Elsa combined. Both are already very familiar with numbers, but Robin needed some review of Roman numerals and Elsa didn't know them at all. So we reviewed number qualities, Roman numerals, tally marks, number words, and some form drawing. We had a fairy tale and a riddle for most of the numbers as well. It was a fun, quick lesson block that was a great start to the new year. Below are my chalkboard drawings for each number, the children copied them into their main lesson books.

Sch Gabi, it was an illustration we came up with from the story "Brave Princess Eliza" by Rebecca Ide Lowe. It was in the Oak Meadow Kindergarten Syllabus, lesson 18. I hope that helps!
