Organizing Data with Spielgaben

Organizing Data with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

I love flipping through the Spielgaben guides to find something new my daughter would enjoy. It isn’t hard to find a simple lesson with so many great ones to choose from! This one was really fun! It’s called “Find Friends” and focused on organizing data.

Making the little people was fun. Definitely an idea I would have not thought of on my own! Using clear tape on top of the pieces allows you to draw the faces with a Sharpie and peel the tape off later!

Spielgaben-3

We began with simple sorting, boys in red and girls in purple.

Spielgaben

Then I told her to put the people with yellow hair in one circle. Then I asked her to put people with glasses in the other circle. Uh oh! One of the girls with yellow hair has glasses too! This led into the discussion about the “both” category in the middle.

Spielgaben-2

After I had explained the concept, I challenged her to come up with a sorting rule and explain it to me!

Spielgaben-4

I drew more Venn diagrams for her to show her how we can use these to sort. We have done this some in the past but it was a great review! To close the lesson I created a blank Venn diagram on her Boogie Board for her to fill in all about her and her brother!

Spielgaben-5

A very fun lesson!

Types of Triangles with Spielgaben

Different types of Triangles with Spielgaben Math

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

Sometimes I align our Spielgaben lessons with her main math curriculum and other times I choose a totally different topic! As I was flipping through the math guide I came across the lesson on types of triangles and thought she would enjoy learning about that!

Spielgaben

   

I introduced four different types of triangles, all included in the Spielgaben set. Equilateral, right angle isosceles, obtuse isosceles, and right angle scalene were the ones we focused on.

Spielgaben-4

We discussed the difference between the types of triangles and also the names of the types of angles in each. It was a great lesson and she learned a lot!

Spielgaben-2

We played simple games together, focusing on sorting the triangles correctly. In the end, I took away the visual reminder by folding the notes up to just show the names.

Spielgaben-3

I love doing hands-on math lessons with her and she gets all excited when I bring out a new Spielgaben math lesson!

Fraction Fun with Spielgaben

Fraction Fun with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

I am going to be super honest with you today. I am so thankful that I am hired to write a blog post sharing Spielgaben activities with you. Why? Because the hands-on learning is SOOOOO good for her and my lazy self might ignore doing this if I didn’t have to. There have been seasons of life where I have been a rock-star with hands-on learning and curriculum extension, but this year we are just getting the basics done. When I pulled out this lesson for her to extend her math she beamed with joy and begged me to play over and over again.

She is reviewing fractions in her math and it’s always something that is easily forgotten in the early elementary years. We played a game to reinforce basic fractions.

Spielgaben (3 of 3)

Using a sticky note as a base, the challenge was to roll the cube and place the correct fraction piece on the square paper. Once the paper was covered, we had a winner! Before playing I created a cube with different fractions on it to match the 1/4, 1/2, and whole pieces we had.

Spielgaben (1 of 3)

I also created a second cube without pictures, which we played with second. This was much harder as there wasn’t a visual reminder for which piece to grab.

This was a fabulous game to play for fraction review and also just to see her smile and hear her giggle.

Making Tops with Spielgaben

Spinning Tops with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

One of the best things about owning a Spielgaben set is the open-ended play that occurs. This summer has provided many hours of free time and my 8 year old daughter has chosen to create with our set many times. She had loads of fun one day making tops which entertained our new kitten tremendously!

Spielgaben-1

Spielgaben-2

After she made her first set of tops, I challenged her to try different designs and test which one worked best. It was fun to see her get surprised when one I suggested worked well even though she thought it wouldn’t!

Spielgaben-3

The tops have been played with a lot since they were created, many have become kitten toys!

See our top fun in action in the video below…

I am in homeschool planning mode, getting some Spielgaben ideas together to extend our math lessons when we begin school in August!

Exploring Place Value with Spielgaben

Exploring Place Value with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

Over the summer I plan to use our Spielgaben set to reinforce math concepts my daughter has learned. We began this week by reviewing place value! I used the Math Guide from Spielgaben as inspiration for my lesson with her.

First, I got out some pieces and used dot stickers to make visual representations like this. The number cubes represented hundreds, tens and ones.

First, all we did was roll the cubes and say the correct number. Then we brought in the different shapes to visually show the breakdown of the place value!

Spielgaben  (2 of 8)

Spielgaben  (3 of 8)

After playing that way for a bit, we did some comparing, using the Spielgaben pieces and our Boogie Board. We reviewed how to say the answer correctly also, “327 is less than 523.”

I love having our Spielgaben set to use for our math extension and review and look forward to using it this summer break specially!
