Math is the subject in which Eaton didn't show me what he knew. It was really hard to figure out the level of his knowledge because he didn't respond to it like to other subjects: science or language. Whenever he counted he did it correctly but then he didn't want to do it for a long time. Not so long ago Eaton started to count almost all the time everything around. He uses his fingers, he add them up, he double them. He uses numbers only to 10. He doesn't want to do above 10, maybe only few times so far. (but he counts to 100 easy)
Anyway, I decided to go back to basic, the other day. I gave Eaton simple activity using Lego Duplo blocks. He needed to put blocks in sequence from 1-10 or 10 to 1.
After seeing post on Peter's blog -Poznajemy Montessori I added some beads to activity. Eaton liked that idea a lot and he started to put them on top of blocks.
We started addition too: by 1.
That was very interesting to see him involved in that activity to the end. He did all by himself and he enjoyed that. That was very important :)
