1. The first blog I found is about learning Math through play. This blog is really cool because blogger that started it uses domino pieces for Math with little kids. I never thought about using dominoes with kids. She makes a great point too about how it helps with their fine motor skills. The dots on the dominoes are used for addition and the different colors on them help for visual appeal.

2. I think this is my favorite find out of all these. This article is about teaching/learning math through dance. Me being a dancer I was so happy to see this. Two guys came up with a way to cater to people that are kinesthetic learners. There's a video in the article that shows you a short clip of Erik Stern and Karl Schaffer, the founders of Math Dance, teaching teachers how to combine Math and Dance. Teachers commented in the article that have done Math dance saying that they saw students improve in math from it. Since I love to dance I'm definitly going to try this.

3. This blog is about learning math through music. The general topic is about if listening to music at a young age will increase your mathematical abilities. I've heard that if you're pregnant and play classical music it will make the baby smarter. I always thought that it was not possible but after reading a lot research over the years I do think that it plays a role in helping the brain process information. In the comments I was reading someone posted that when her students use music to summarize what they learned or are introduced with a subject through song they learn better. I usually you make up songs to help me study so I don't doubt for a fact that this works.

4. This next blog I found is about learning math through play. What better way to teach math to kids than to have them play engaging games that require counting and pattern recognition. This blog site gives you games that wiil be popular with kids. One of which never crossed my mind for some reason. It's number two on the list and its cash register. When I was little I play 'Market' and other random games that required a register. I think a lot of kids still play this game now and having fake money to use and having them actually count the money to give you the right amount is cool way to learn math.

5. I found a video about teaching kids math with computers. I would think that using computers at a young age will be distracting for kids and maybe even hard for them. After listening to the video I think it's a great idea. Using technology is a part of our lifestyle nowadays so introducing it to young kids it's not a bad idea. The speaker makes a great point about how teaching kids to count with their hands can be tedious at times. We only have ten fingers so to go beyond ten can at times be hard for them to do. Reading the comments on the video people seem to learn better when using computers.

6. This video is about teaching the magic in math. The video is about an Elementary school that integrated math through all subject areas and saw a big improvement in their test scores. I don't remember having math integrated in all subjects in my school. I think that I would have improved in math earlier than I did if they did this. I love the strategies the teachers use to get the students to talk their way through problems. They call it discourse, they have the students talk to one another to come up with a solution. I think I saw this at one of my field works and the kids seem to love sharing ideas and opinons to come up with an answer.
