Henry had his first homework assignment for preschool.
To create the number 100 out of something.
[Not 100 of something, but to make the numbers themselves.]
We discussed it together to decide what to make.
[Henry told me his teacher made one out of corn!]
We decided we wanted to make one with dirt.
Well, its February in Iowa and it just snowed about six inches, so dirt wasn’t to be found.
We settled on sand. [Thankfully, our sandbox has a lid!]
Henry created the number 100 while playing with sand, inside!
It was fun and George even joined in.
First, I had Henry write the number 100 on a piece of scrapbook paper.
I was amazed at how easy this was for him.
His writing skills have really taken off, even if they aren’t correctly done all the time, I’m still impressed. [He often starts at the bottom of letters and numbers, instead of the top.]
