Yesterday was Day 20. Zero the Hero made another visit, bringing us each twenty pretzels. He sent us an ‘e-mail’ exhorting us to count them by ones, twos, fives, and tens. As we wrote about our twenty pretzels in our Zero the Hero Journals we took the time to enjoy our pretzels. Zero the Hero should make his next appearance on Day 30.
Delivered to my room today was a huge packet of materials called Mountain Math. Apparently, someone has decided that instead of/in addition to the usual calendar math we do every morning and the pattern work we do as we celebrate Zero the Hero, we need to do this other system. It’s going to take me hours to laminate all the pieces and cut them out. No word on where I’ll keep the eleventy-billion kibbles and bits.
Oh, and I need to designate a bulletin board for this whole thing. Would that be the actual bulletin board where our calendar math is now? Or the faux one I made by putting fabric on the opposite side of the dry erase board to make the thing symmetrical?
Sorry, Zero the Hero. It looks as though your skill set may longer be needed as we enter a new streamlining phase vis a vis talking about number patterns. Good luck in your new venture.
