Playful Learning with Spielgaben ~ October 2014

Playful Learning with Spielgaben is our monthly post sharing Spielgaben in action!  If you missed the introduction to this series, you can see it here and also see links to our past posts.. We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.  I will be sharing once a month a detailed post featuring Spielgaben.  You can also see my Learning with Ladybug posts to see what my daughter has done with this learning set!

Playful Learning with Spielgaben October 2014



Lessons We Enjoyed

This month we finished up our work with Set 8 and began our work with Set 9. I took small screen shots of the manual for you so you can see how the lessons are laid out.  They are very easy to follow and help me so much. I keep the user guide on my iPad and we use it for the lessons.  She likes that she can enlarge each step if needed to see exactly how something was built. it’s a nice bonus to a PDF digitally instead of printed!

We worked on Lesson 8-2 My Body Bones.

Spielgaben 8-2

Before we began the lesson, I got out a floor puzzle we have and we talked about our skeleton together for awhile.

This was great to lead into the building of the skeleton with Spielgaben pieces!  She loved it!

We also completed Lesson 8-3 Building a Spider Web.

First, we brainstormed different types of weather and then got busy building them together.

Once building was done, I made labels for her to add some print awareness.

She then asked if she could tell me a story about the creations!!  Sure honey, go right ahead!

Mommy Inspired Play

She loved this one, mostly because she loves pumpkins!  I dug out many yellow shapes and put them in the bucket.  I built a pumpkin and as soon as she saw it, she began her own creations!
