Counting by Twos

As you can see, it's going to be a mathematical week. I chance upon this book on counting by twos, and decided to borrow it. I've been reading this book for some nights now. As we read, i'd ask N what's after 2? And as i turn the page, there lies his answer and he'd say '4'! I was worried that he'd be confuse and start to count by 2s instead of 1-10. So i made it a point to say 'let's count by 2s' to help him differentiate.

I am constantly amazed at how a simple book can actually be a powerful teaching tool. Just by reading this book, N somewhat knows how to count by 2s. I say somewhat, because he tends to miss the '6' or sometimes '8'. We'll keep reading! :)
