Playing With Blocks ideas, and a workshop on March 10

Sian Zelbo, a co-author and illustrator of the popular math circle and family book Camp Logic, is working on her next book, Playing With Blocks. You can grab this Math Spark and play-test an activity from the book with your children: easy, addictive, smart toothpick puzzles!

Sally Bishop, an enthusiastic Natural Math leader, has joined Sian to offer an online workshop centered on the new book’s ideas. It runs on March 10 and 11, and is for parents and teachers with children ages 5-12.
