What kid doesn’t love a birthday party?! My featured homework kit for February is The Birthday Bag. With this kit, children pretend they are making a cake using measuring cups and water, then they get to “decorate” one on paper. Other activities include exploring numbers with numeral candles, doing math with gift bows, and creating an invitation. I won’t have to do any pretending this month since my oldest son’s 3rd birthday is tomorrow (can’t believe it!) and my 33rd is a week later. Okay, enough blogging. I’ve got a volcano cake to make…!
Would you like instructions for making The Birthday Bag, related worksheets, and an activities list so parents will know how to use it with their children? You can request them through the “contact” tab on my website and I will send you the PDF files via email. My kits make homework magical for children. I hope you will take the time to make one and experience the joy and excitement they will bring to your classroom (or your home)!
