Isaiah has suddenly figured out basic addition and subtraction. We’ve played a few math type games, but hadn’t really focused on adding or subtracting because he still hadn’t mastered “lower level” skills, like counting to twenty. But Isaiah apparently feels that adding is more important than counting and has decided to figure it out on his own.
Today, while we were playing with his blocks, I set up my iPad to record him. He did addition, subtraction and patterns for about half an hour before deciding he wanted to do something else. Not bad for a four year old’s attention span.
