Well today started out wonderful. The children were early to rise, which meant that we were able to start our school work at 8am a planned.
This morning NIK concentrated on her cutting and pasting skills, with her work sheets. She had to cut out pictures of teddy bears with numbers on their bellies, and then assemble and paste them into her work book to show which way the numbers go. NIK is doing great with her number recognition. She was able to tell me yesterday that 4 is ‘my number’ meaning how old she is and then she went on to tell me that 2 plus 2 equals her number. I had not anticipated that she would be able to work this out herself with no input from anyone, but she did. She loves to count and also to sing songs that utilise the numbers system such as ‘Ten green bottles, sitting on the wall’, ’1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive’ and many more. It is great to see NIK flourishing in her learning and having so much fun with it also.
