This week we've been reading this Jack and the Beanstalk story by Nick Sharatt. It's a lift-the-flap book which the children always love. It also came with an accompanying cd so we can play the story again during rest time. This version of the fairytale classic differs a bit than the usual story. For a start the golden goose is a hen and the giant isn't so much into "I'll grind your bones to make my bread." My son had been doing a fairy tale focus at his school this term and that's all I…

Evan loves Jack and the Beanstalk so I thought it would be fun to build a castle in the clouds like the story. This STEM and sensory activity was the perfect extension for the book.

This week we began the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. Today I thought I would share a few of the math activities we have been doing.

She was more interested in helping me bake...and sample... and mix... and sample! We made graham crackers and cut them into castle and cottage parts that I hoped we would put together later in the morning for an edible scene. (Here's the graham cracker recipe I use. We love graham…

Fee Fi Foe Fum, let's have some math fun!! My son's 3rd grade class has been working on extended facts (e.g. 3 x 3 is 9 so 3 x 30 is 90, 3 x 300 is 900, 30 x 30 is 900, etc.). They've also been writing their own fairy tales. To expand on what he's been learning at school, I made a fun fairy tale-inspired math facts game for him. Want to make this game too? What you Need 8 pages of white cardstock (or 6 pages of cardstock and 2 plain office paper) Beanstalk game board and extended facts…
