Gotta Love This Kind of Homeschoolin'

You know when not being able to sleep but 5 hours a night is a good thing? When it translates into a bunch of brainstormin'!!

I had this idea yesterday that while Ri being introduced to fractions in her Math lessons, i should make them practical ones too. In the lesson, we split paper circles in half with the scissors, crayons, and manipulatives, but nothing that has practical everyday use.

So, i had this idea while i was reading a blog that included a recipe for Nutter Butter Banana Pudding Trifle from Southern Living. "Place half of pudding mixture in bowl...." "Break cookies into thirds...."

Genius! So that was our math lesson for today. Oh, and what a delectable math lesson it was! You'll notice that Ri thinks she's doing an infomercial. She's a big fan of Billy Mayes, bless her heart. :o)
