Today, after his full 7 hour school day, Ted spent the half hour after school working on his "Number Scroll." He was so into it that his teacher suggested he take it home to finish for homework (there is no homework in K/1). We left and went to a coffee shop for a snack before TKD, where Ted finished his scroll. He'll have to get another sheet of paper tomorrow to continue. Briefly, it helps them see patterns. And the way they teach them to add is different; the way to figure out 10+9 is to add 10+10 and subtract 1. Hmm. It sure is all coming together for him. Cool.
