Yesterday we celebrated the 100 day milestone of filling Luke’s number chart up to 100. I gave him $1 (representing 100 pennies) to spend at the Dollar Store. He bought gum!
So this morning, his job was to add number “one hundred one” to his chart. I asked, “How do you write one hundred one?” He confidently said, “Like this.” And he wrote: “1001.” I laughed hysterically, took a picture of it, then explained that one hundred one is written like this: “101.” I’m not quite sure he gets it yet, but he’ll work into it. I really see why he wrote it the way he did…100…and then a 1!! I thought a discussion on place value would be too advanced, so we’ll wait for another time! Kids are so cute!!
