Thanks to Maria’s Conversations with Moms, here’s my own concern for this week:
What’s with numbers 20, 30 and 50 that is so hard for children to remember? My son learned to read his alphabets at 28 months. He quickly learned reading his numbers 1-10 after that. It was a breeze for him to learn to read 40, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100. But we had been going back to 20, 30 and 50 for several weeks now and he still can’t grasp the idea that these numbers are called twenty, thirty and fifty:-(.
