This is next on my reading list. I wanted to pick it up because it reminded me of the movie “Suffragette”and even if I couldn’t finish the movie out of anger and frustration I still think this book is an essential read.
Have you read it?
Ohmygosh. We had so much fun making our living preposition anchor chart! My friends squeezed, squished and posed BETWEEN, INSIDE, BESIDE, and ACROSS our whole room. How friend # 1 maneuvered himself between those tiny shelves is beyond me! Can’t wait to print these and hang them up!
Some physics is probably involved (definitely not my forte) but I'm confused as to why it seems that my watch completely disappeared in the reflection.

Have You Seen My Dragon? by Steve Light
I really should have had this review up and ready for yesterday, seeing as it was St. George's Day! Leave it to me to be a day late for everything though.
We started hunting for math and number related story books recently. This came about for a number of reasons.
1) F has become a number junkie lately. His little 5 year old brain is opening up to all the cool parts of math. He loves learning about square numbers and recalling bonds to 10 and 100 and telling me new little facts he discovered.
2) E wants to be like his big bro so much and talk about numbers but doesn't know his whole alphabet yet and mixed up numbers and letters. Seemed like a good time to focus a bit on numbers alone so he could see them in a different context.
3) I've been reading a lot about the math before bed movement and how its trying to jump on the read aloud movement's back. Reading aloud has such a great focus and people really see it as tradition and quality family time but math activities don't hold that same sparkle. There is no reason they can't be combined though! So we headed out to find some books that help us do a bit of number sense bonding time at bedtime!
Our first book is Have You Seen My Dragon. The illustrations alone will sell you on this book straight away. It is mostly black and white, with only one object on each page in colour - the object that is meant to be counted. The story follows an imaginative little boy around the city on a hunt for his dragon. The dragon is conveniently hidden on each page, adding another fun element of hunting on each page. My preschooler loves every aspect of this book and excitedly counts up each book, ice cream, train car and pigeon he can find.
What are your favourite preschool+ math related books?
The weather has been horrible today; raining on and off. But at last I get a chance to get some fresh air and catch up on a great read. #BlackIndians a Hidden Heritage is by far one of the best books I've read in a while. I stand proud of my #African , #Choctaw , and #Cherokee heritage! Thanks to the union between these groups of spiritually connected individuals, I stand here today. ✊🏽 Love and honor all of your ancestors; you are who you are because of them... And most of all, respect the cultures and your connections to them... it's a beautiful thing when you fully embrace all that you are! 🙏🏽 #BlackNative
