L was printing numbers on the board. "C," he would call, "what is 4 plus 4? What comes after 7? That's the answer." He would print numbers as he talked with her about them. Then L and C printed numbers randomly, talking about them and about addition (among other things). C decided to print the numbers 1 through 12.
I commented on what I saw them doing. But I didn't push it or talk too much about it. I didn't want to spoil their enjoyment of numbers and math with some "teaching."
|This means 1 plus 1 equals 2.|
