Make Numbers Mean Something
Practicing number formation is important; let's aim to make it meaningful when the opportunity presents itself. This little kindergartener had some math work left to do, so we practiced staying inside the guidelines as he wrote some of the numbers.
Then, we took turns using a flexible ruler to draw and measure lines on paper as well as measuring the dimensions of my calendar notebook.
Even though the ruler is flexible, it allows you to draw a straight, unnotched line.
