Stylish has been asking questions that are long multiplication so yesterday I sat down with her and reminded her how to do them. She had so much fun she asked for more. She seems to struggle with which column to put the carried over numbers in, and then forgets which one to add on when she is faced with that column, but it's nothing practice won't straighten out. Amazingly enough she seems to really know her times tables now, and that's more than half the work in this type of sum.
Spikee was very impressed with his sister doing maths and announced that he wanted to do some too, so I wrote numbers and he scribbled over them. He is starting to be familiar with some numbers, I'm sure Stylish could read all her numbers by now, but I could be wrong.
