The 100s Chart

How can we make numbers more familiar?

I thought that having Eilidh write a hundreds chart would help her practice writing her numbers, review counting to one hundred and hopefully visualize patterns and relationships in the numbers. We used the numbers cards to play a sort of bingo game where all she had to do was point at the number on the chart.  from the number made with the cards.

The best thing is she did it herself, hopefully the task alone will have familiarized her with some numbers at least.

Here we used Snapguide to show the process.

Eric Carle Inspired MadLips

Eilidh finished her Zoo School with a performance of Eric Carle’s “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?”. Meanwhile back in the lab, we were trying out a new app called MadLips and came up with our own spontaneous version of the same book.

Eilidh came up with different verbs for each animal’s answer and I cleverly came up with the ending. It took one or two takes per animal, mainly trying to keep the camera in the right place. I imagine we’ll add our own photos to this and get a bit more creative with some storytelling or conversation.

Free app. Our first attempt.
