Here are my ideas and creations for Life of Fred: Edgewood. My son loves the Life of Fred math series but requires extra time with the material for mastery of concepts. Sometimes I just add extra mathwork sheets and other times I create extra projects.
To change things up I am using a different notebook page from the one I created for the first book, I like this Life of Fred Edgewood printable . My son was curious to why the border contained houses, I mentioned it had something to do with Edgewood. At this moment he is guessing all the things Edgewood could be.
Chapter 1: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Since Fred introduces quadrilaterals I thought this was a perfect time to build shapes with pretzels and mini marshmallows. Then my son interest was peaked by the mention of Fred’s age in days.
- I created “How Old Are You” printable to calculate age by years, days, hours, and minutes. It was a great chance to review how many days in a year and how many minutes in an hour. Then we compared how many more days older my son was to Fred.
- Since Fred mentions going through the alphabet to say good morning to different animals and plants, I thought it was a perfect time to create an ABC Book of Math Ideas. Each lesson my son will work on his book.
