The Number 5

  • Daddy had Mica practice writing tonight. He wrote, "Mica Zachary Apel will be 5". Daddy had him sound out all the letters before writing them. He knows how to write his first name, but not the rest.
  • I could read it.
  • There were about five 5's on the page because he had trouble with writing the number. Mica was all down on himself that he couldn't write a 5 by himself. We both praised him for doing such a great job. We explained that sometimes kids just need help from adults, and lots of practice to do it themselves.
  • We used the example of him zipping up his coat. He now can zip his own coat, but needed lots of help before he was able to do it himself.
