Julia did a math sheet of subtraction in the math coloring work book we have. We do the problems together using an abacus. We keep doing it together. I hope she will understand it by herself. Today, she realized that some of the problems repeated and told me she knew the answers to the repeats.

And so it happens that 10-2 is always 8. Not a bad thing to notice.

We are using the counting tiles up to 40. She puts them in order, and then counts by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's. She needs help with the counting, needs help putting them all in order, need help saying her 30's, but it was a wee bit quicker than it was last week.
