Zion spent an hour playing with our matrioshka doll collection this evening.

I realized that she was practicing counting.....

....and sorting according to size. Here...they are put in pairs determined by height.


I was never they type to buy all of those pricey math manipulatives. We just use whatever is laying around...beads...forks...pennies.... nesting dolls...etc.

No way! They were high up on a shelf so that none of the pieces would get lost. ( I have visions of passing them down to grandkids.)

Then I realized....they could be enjoyed and cared for if we are intentional and careful during playtime. Mulltiple lessons taught at once. There's a thought!
