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.
Chapter 4: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Is there a real Edgewood, Kentucky? We got out our Atlas to find Kentucky and headed to the internet to research.
Chapter 5: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Between Fred and 11th Doctor Who Bow Tie , my son has mastered wearing a bow tie with his daily T-shirts.
- For a bonus I might have learn how to tie a bow tie.
Chapter 6 and 7: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Introducing Bar Graphs with sponges from the dollar store. The teacher’s tip video shows using sponges to teach bar graphs and talks about a classroom voting, but I have been known to post questions on FB or send emails to friends to create data.
Chapter 10 and 11: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Review Teaching Money with Life of Fred.
- Using a bingo dauber we created a matrix with dots. We then created other patterns and pictures.
Chapter 14: Life of Fred Edgewood
- Thought I would mention my post on creating gluten and dairy free moon phase cookies.
- It was a great opportunity for a health lesson, we read how to treat hyperthermia.
We are going to continue Life of Fred Elementary Series, looking forward to planning the next book Life of Fred Farming.
