Q cracked me up Tuesday. I could practically see the cogs working as he figured things out. He drew a cursive E on the dry erase board and told me it was a 3. I explained that E went the other way, but if he came over to where I was standing (it was on the floor) it *was* a 3. He alternated: “E!” “3!” a few times, then came to the side and said, “What is it from this side?”
I wasn’t paying attention.
“From this side it’s an M!”
I snapped to attention. “You’re right!”
And then he walked to the other side, “What is it from this side?” “What do you think?” “a W!”
He made a happy little hop of confidence and discovery.
I think we're about to see a big leap in abilities.
