Some of you know already that I work with a boy with dyscalclia. Numbers dance and it's hard for him to grab them.
He is a genious when it comes to shapes and pictures and maps. At ten he momorized the countries and their capitols. I can't even pronounce them. But when it comes to math he has difficulty with number concepts.
We are working on whole numbers plus fractions like one and a half. This is getting puzzling for him so we worked with a measuring cup and the sesame seeds.
He paid attention for about one minute and then he started arranging the seeds to make a picture.
