Replace "fractions" with the numbers 15 - 19 and you will have an accurate picture of Math Time.

Tot can recognize, name, and write all the other numbers from 1 - 100, but she can. not. reliably recognize the numbers 15 - 19.

Mindy, I feel your pain.

Isn't it funny what kids will have a mental block on?

I could absolutely count forwards and backwards as high as you wanted with no problem at all...except that I consistently forgot the number four when counting down. Eventually, I think I learned by watching our neighbor's "high tech" digital microwave (it was 1982) and shouting "FOUR" whenever I saw it appear. It could be that watching the microwave might help her get into a counting rhythm, too -- and all while her Easy Mac is cooking. Maybe just varying it up a little bit would help.

Anyway, sorry for your Monday frustrations!
