There is a sound coming from the other room. It is my 8yo moaning and grumbling because I gave him some number words to copy. Our lesson for today was to write some number words. He wrote fourteen with no problem. Then I asked him to spell thirty-three. He did not know how to spell "three". Uh-oh.... So I gave him some copywork He is not too happy about it.
When I was in school, I would have loved to just copy some number words for my math assignment. I am a reader and writer. I do not like math. I would have been glad to write every number from zero to one-hundred if it got me out of multiplication tables.
