A few weeks ago Rylan started writing numbers. Not too suprising. In kindergarten he would write numbers on a whiteboard for hours (yes that is an exaggeration). He got to 230 before he ran out of room on the paper. Somewhere during this time I told him if he got to 1000 I'd give him a prize. (From our prize box that has a bunch of random items in it) Cale of course wanted to know what he could do to get a prize. I told him he could write to 100.
Today he (Cale) finished. It took him 3 days once he decided to actually take on the challenge. Once again my camera batteries are acting up, so no smiling face holding his paper- but he was oh so proud of it. And I am so proud of how focused he was. And how well he knew the numbers.
Backwards numbers and all.
Now if I can only get him to stop skipping 13 and 16 when he counts objects?
His prize: a little plastic man with a plastic parachute attached. He played with it for an hour- throwing it as high as he could. Then the parachute broke....:)
