I was going to wait until February before we started back homeschooling but Jack in particular is really needing more structure and familiarity to his days, so I’ve started setting up the spaces in our homeschool studio again with explorations and activities – and it feels so nice to be back into the swing of things!
Here’s my first On the Shelves Snapshot for the year. This very simple maths exploration is intended for Sarah (4.75 years). Here she can write the number in the salt as well as create the number with glass gems.
Our salt tray has a clear base which makes it perfect for the light panel – you could also use a clear acrylic serving tray; I’ve seen some recently at Kmart. The salt is just regular table salt and the glass gems are from a discount store (in with the artificial plants). The wooden numbers (here in Australia) are part of this larger set which we use a lot for making numbers.
I am really looking forward to kicking the year off tomorrow 🙂
