I've been thinking about abacuses a lot lately.
Then we got some small stones to line the labyrinth yesterday and Svea immediately grabbed a handful of stones so she could do math games.
Hooray for math games! With small stones! It was a very Montessori moment from a public-school-educated child. Hooray for Meadow View!
So Svea lined up stones to play adding games and my heart multiplied.
