Babess found a piece of breakfast cereal on the floor this morning (as you often do, at 7am in our house).  It’s a brand that comes in the shape of a torus.  She held it up, considered it, and said, “It’s a zero”.  I was so proud!

It also occurred to me that Fainjin seems to recognise more numerals than he does letters.  I seem to remember Pearl learning her letters, and indeed reading words, much much earlier than her numerals.  Yet another reminder that they are very different people.

One Response to “Numeracy”

    It’s interesting about the numeral/letters thing. Chet is always asking if something is number or a letter and frequently won’t believe me when I tell him what a piece of text or list of numbers is. He doesn’t really seem to recognise any particular number or letter but just wants to know in general what they are.
