Singapore Math arrived last Thursday. Instead of starting to use it right away, I planned to wait until today (first day of our school week). Ani, however, wanted to get started early and had already done a few lessons.
Today Ani and Cameron happened to get to their workboxes with math in them at the same time. I cannot work with both at once so I said one would have to go on to the next box until I was finished with the other.
And so started the strangest argument they have ever had. They fought over who got to do their math first. They both wanted to do it then and not to have to wait because they were both excited about doing their math.
In the end Cameron won. He had the best argument so I had to side with him. Ani had already done some and he hadn’t so it was only fair he got to go first.
