Seeing Tens

Hello!

Last year, my 5-year-old daughter was doing RightStart Level A. One day we were driving and she suddenly exclaimed “Mommy! I see two tens!” I saw that she was pointing at an address that said 5510. For a second, I wasn’t sure what she meant, then she said “Two fives is ten, and another ten!”

She has continued to make similar observations over the past year. I love how RightStart’s use of the abacus quickly gets kids seeing tens. 😀

Here’s a picture of her with the sign.

Thanks for the great curriculum!

Sincerely,
