One of the play things in our yard are the ten stumps I salvaged from the neighbors when they had their tall pines removed last year.
They are great for displaying nature and leaving popcorn out for the birds.
And equally, or even more, great for leaping across.
I wrote numbers on them in sidewalk chalk…
..to help J-jo with number recognition as he counted the stumps on his journeys across them.
Once he has mastered 1-10, we’ll write 11-20 on them, and then skip count the tens to 100.
We could write letters on them too, or sight words…when he gets to sight words.
