Place value. Oh. my. heavens. Place value is a pain in K-'s behind. Sometimes she gets it, sometimes she doesn't. We wonder if part is being distracted and worrying about what she might be missing. This evening her worry was missing Daddy's video game. Since we deemed the educational help a lot more important than Clone Wars, she was a bit irked.
I had larger Legos that I used as tens. I used those single dots that never ever do much for ones. I went over the entire school work paper with her (front and back) and called Hubs in for reinforcement. We told her it was like we were playing a game together. (We weren't and she knew it.) At least it was time spent together as a family!
You'd be glad to know that I think that the Lego work helped. It's still going to be a bit of a long road.
Smiles in my day:
- Awaiting my Chipotle meal (chicken burritos, black beans, salsa and something else). Everyone is so excited! Why not? :)
- Excited that the thaw we are experiencing might make the sidewalks passable for walking next week. HOORAY!
- K-'s love for Amelia Bedelia. I grew up with my mom reading them to me and she reads them to me on a regular basis.
Have a great day!
