The math lessons this week have to do with sorting/ classifying. We spent some time this morning sorting colored buttons in a muffin tin. When school was over, the monkey boy had some chores to do… One of which is taking the silverware from the dishwasher and putting it away in the drawer.
Little did he know, he was using some real life application of the morning’s lesson.
Some kids, like my little guy like learning for learning’s sake. They don’t so much care about why they have to learn it, they just do it. However, other kids need to know what purpose these school lessons play in real life.
Our days are filled with teachable moments… We just have to train ourselves to take advantage of them.
