Here is a bit of homeschool comedy for you!
KJ learned out to count by 2’s (up to about 10) awhile back. So, we have been reviewing how to count by 2’s for about a week now. So, yesterday in the midst of the chaos of me trying to get dinner on the table she told me should could count by A’s. I said okay and totally disregarded her comment. So, today I was able to work with just her on her schoolwork (the boys were quietly playing downstairs…so I let them keep playing). Anyhow, she announces, again, that she can count by A’s. Here I am thinking that I am misunderstanding what she says and then all of a sudden she says, “A C E G I K M…and so forth.” She was counting by A’s! Once I figured out what she was doing, I couldn’t help but laugh. It is amazing how kids make connections in their heads!
