Today the boys and I decided to get outside despite the morning mist.  We brought sidewalk chalk and turned yet another playtime into “homeschooling”.  I realized that this was perfect for both boys because it worked on motor skills, counting, following directions and was fun.  Not to mention they stayed wrangled. 😉

I think the number wheel would be an excellent way to practise “skip counting” too.  By having them jump over numbers they could count: 2,4,6,8,10,12,14 or 1,3,5,7,9,11,13.

Dear Jesus, thank you for fun times. 🙂 Amen.
