Eleven weeks of mathematical playtime kicks off this week over at Learners in Bloom blog.

Each week, we’ll be playing with the math, language, and logic topics found in a single chapter. I’ll be posting ideas for extension activities, videos demonstrating the concepts for the week, and additional resources. I’m really excited for the opportunity to share all the extra ideas that have been floating around my brain which I didn’t have room to include in the book (as in Marco Polo’s famous words: “I did not tell half of what I saw.”)

### Here’s a Quick Taste of Week One

### This Week’s Activities

Lilac’s blog post includes a full schedule for the eleven-week book club, featuring plenty of classic math puzzlers to play with. Here are the topics for this week.

- Read Chapter 1: Mrs. Magpie’s Manual
- Alliteration
- Memorizing digits of Pi
- Palindromes
- Calculating your age on other planets

It looks like a lot of fun. I highly recommend the book (**read my review**), and I’m sure you and your children will enjoy discovering math and magic with Lulu and Elizabeth.
