William. I have lots of thoughts I want to share about him and I want to ask YOU about any suggestions you may have but my time to post this blog blurb is limited. I did want to share this, though. My sweet, sweet boy is becoming like Holly (our dog). He's beginning to dig and chew when bored. You feel me? While at the teacher store this morning looking for things for my blossoming learner (Lauren), I saw these dice. I bought them and we played three rounds of this simple, simple game I made up after lunch today while Lauren napped. It was just enough to feed his head for the moment. He's currently watching Looney Tunes and will be done with that activity very soon and we'll have to do something else to feed his brain, again.
The dice game, William has called it Sucker Dice because if you lose you are a sucker, is great because Drew and William can play it together with no help from MEEEEEE.
You can probably tell how it goes just by looking at our score card. 10 rolls each, take turns. Write down (have your child write down) the answers to the math problem that you roll. Keep a tally (have your child keep a running tally) and the person after 10 rolls with the most points wins! See? Keepin' it simple. The math aspect of it is awesome, especially for someone William's age.
