two times

Our work with the beginnings of the "2" times table. Mine first, J's 2nd, Zoo Boy's 3rd, this is Grandmother Strange, limping along on her cane and counting by twos. Zoo Boy had the huge "aha!" moment today with this as we were doing our drawings. He sort of casually observed, "She kind of looks like the number two." Suddenly he stopped drawing and looked at me and said, "Is that because she walks in twos?" I smiled back at him and he got all excited, pointing to the side of our paper where the numbers were going to go, and shouted, "I know what goes here! 2, 4, 6, 8, like that, right?!" I LOVE THIS METHOD OF LEARNING!!
