Suba Jagannathan  Creating educational toys and nature-inspired materials that nurture the natural curiosity of the little minds.🌺

It is never too early to teach about money right? My daughter prefers penny over anything else. Not for too long as I just put this out. How many pennies make a quarter? How many pennies, dimes and nickels do I need to make a dollar aka cover the board? .

Introducing my Make a dollar/money counting manipulative, a fun, beautiful hands on tool that will make kids want to learn more about money manipulation. .

As always, it is completely made of beautiful and all natural hardwoods. The base is made of buttery white maple and the fractions are made of a contrasting, yet readable alder. The base has pockets to hold pennies and make a dollar. They are engraved with dollar value. The top fractions have the coin detail engraved on them, as accurately as I can get!

Last year I had this as a self correcting puzzle but I didn't feel that was fair to the bugs :) Many of them are very very helpful to us in more than one way and I would like the toys to reflect the reality. .

A great investigating aid for the little bug lover in your life too! As always, made of hardwood maple featuring beautiful artwork. In the shop now.

Been meaning to do this for a while, a nature swap presented the opportunity. Constellation luminary. The sides are removable and can be used as coasters, on the smaller side for adult mugs, perfect for kids mugs. And works with flashlight too. Planning to add it to the shop with your choice of 4 constellation (may be all the birth signs of the kids or their favorite ones or some that you are currently studying) or set of 12 zodiac.

I have been sharing a lot of materials for older kids, I realized I never shared something that is being used every day in our house. Our ten and teen board - counting, tracing, pattern making and playing, all the good things come in this small package! The holes for the balls are a great size for toddlers still fine tuning their motor skills. They hold 1" wool balls (they come with the boards).

One of the best part of my job is to make boring, complex or abstract concepts into visual delight that presents an invitation to play. While they manipulate these hands on tools, they learn through play effortlessly, the concepts stick in their mind via repetition. The delight in their eyes once everything clicks into place and they understand the whole picture... that makes everything worth it!

I finished tweaking the #periodictable I need input to proceed. Every element has the usual information (name, atomic number, mass, symbol, color coded properties) but also has either it's use or where it is found. Basically, I would like to emphasize that we come across these in everyday things we use. But not all of them are recognizable. For example, resistors. Ruthenium is used to make resistors and resistors are found in almost every electronic gadget we own. That brings me to...I should either engrave what each element's use on the back of the board or provide a booklet with more information on each element (I can elaborate a bit more in the booklet due to space). I need your help here.
.

1) Would something like this be useful in your homeschooling/Classroom? To keep the kids interested and for ease of finding information about each element.
2) If it is useful what do you prefer, engraved on the back (that means hanging becomes difficult) or a booklet with interesting information about each element, one element per page booklet?

Other information - size 22"x15". .

Every family is different, every child is different and how they plan their day is different. Here is another version of my #chorechart personalized and what is done and what is in store for later, clearly categorized. What I love about this version is its versatility. Can be used as a visual chore chart, even through their adult days, I still make to do list every morning. Or as a name plate for their rooms, as a way to hang their art work (I will take a picture of this set up when I get more light), practice writing their name... so many uses. How would go you use it?

Quite a few #chorecharts went out yesterday including a linear version. There are two more variations that I have to apply polish on, will share tomorrow. Working on a rhythm and letting them set the rhythm has been a great way to start the day for us. We set it up once in the morning and once after quiet time/nap time. This set includes 24 chores/activities that were most commonly requested, but if you have a specific activity that is not included, I will be happy to work with you to get that coin included.
.
.
Also for people who already have this, the Google drive of chores have been updated to include quite a few new artwork - beach, pool, speech therapy, doctor appointment and more. I have also included a separate document of holidays and weather.
