My fabulous friend April sent me this post about math and it made a million bells go off in my head.
The author points out that we want to teach our children to read because reading is so joyful and then when we’re asked why want to teach children math it’s all about what they “need” to know. It made me realize we need to put the joy in math. We need to approach it as a gift, just like reading, just like any other type of learning. Yes.
It’s brilliant! Wow! I have changed my thinking entirely about math.
