The student becomes the teacher

Today, Adam was working with Audrey on counting. She’s great at counting in general; yelling out numbers with enthusiasm, but Adam was trying to teach her to count specific objects. For example, if there are three apples and we ask her how many there are, she replies “One, Two, Three…..Four, Five, Six, Seven....”

She gets excited about the fact that she can count and just keeps going, regardless of the amount of items she was asked to count. So, Adam laid ten toys out on the floor and pointed to each one while he slowly counted them, one through ten. Audrey looked at him with a grin and said “Great job, Daddy! I’m proud of you.”
