I think this character speaks for himself. He’s got “trouble” written all over him. And sometimes you can see it coming.
And then there’s the elder brother.
It’s kinda hard to see, thanks to his elaboration, so let me explain this one. We were working on counting – count the number of shaded squares and write the number. Bigger counted three with no trouble. Now, writing “3” is more of a challenge. And honestly between the fact that he is only 4, he’s a boy, and he’s a leftie I’m sure we are in for a big struggle with handwriting. But I’m not worried about that, just trying to give him opportunities to practice.
You can see how his “3” turned out. Most definately a “2.” A really nice, clear (especially for a 4 year old left handed boy) “2” but a “2” all the same. So I wrote one for him and asked if he would try again. He did, eventually. But first he crossed out the bottom shaded-in square. (Can you see it?)
He made the data fit his answer.
The little stinker.
