It’s still rough needs some sanding, staining and finishing to be pretty. But, the concept is working out. This was done in cheap pine from a chunk of 2×4 I had in the shop. Next piece will be done in hardwood with a better switch mechanism. The harder the wood I use the less stock that I have to leave to make it sturdy, it also means less variation through time based on ambient moisture.
All-in-all I think this will make an excellent design for an ecig. Most are linear and do not stand up well due to being top heavy.
Well the beginnings of it. It’s gonna be cool when it’s all put together and sanded.
Finally put back together. Loaned it back to my FIL who needed to disassemble it to get it around his house. Brought it back home in hopes to start using it making custom ecig mods, but then fell sick for a few days. Had a little helper when I was putting it back together, and it’s squarish. I need to build a custom bracket using a piece of angle iron and a T-bolt, then I can really get it squared true.
Teaching 1′s, 10′s, 100′s using cards and columns. Everything is evident except for zero. She’s starting to pick that we put zeros wherever there isn’t a real number.
She can build numbers into the 4th digit now, but I can still stump her by adding a zero in the middle (e.g. 4,097).
Zeros are a bitch, much like the River.
Yeah, it’s a Saturday, but no time like the present. Laura bought some workbooks at the Dollar Tree and Rosie went through them quickly, especially the math. I decided I would check out Khanacademy.org and see what the curriculum is like for preschool. They haven’t really started classes for pre-school yet, 3rd was the lowest level class I saw. However they did offer the individual courses such as 1-digit mathematics and up.
She loves the game style learning and getting badges and points for a job well done.
