Math with Jackson

We have been learning to count by fives.  We have finally got the concept down after spending a couple of weeks counting objects and separating them into muffin tins and by putting some cards with the numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, through 60 in order.

Today he was writing out the numbers.  After looking over his work I asked what a certain number was.  It was supposed to be a 10, but looked more like an "H".  He answered, "It's a 10 in Hebrew!"

He continued writing out the numbers again and was counting them out loud.  He got to the number 40 and stopped for some commentary.  He said, "Forty is a great age.  You know why?  "Cause you can shoot a machine gun!"

Life with Jack is certainly full of surprises....even in the middle of a math lesson!

Found you through MOB Society, and yes, boys do say the funniest things sometimes! Mine are not old enough for these math skills yet, but they still crack me up on a daily basis. Thanks for sharing!
