The Number Wall

 At the age 74, the boys' Gramma Anne still tests at the genius level for mathematics. It clearly skipped a generation,  but may have picked up again by Soren. He loves math, it is his favorite topic in school. His teacher, Mr. Jeremy, challenged the class to see how high they can write their numbers and create individual number lines. Soren worked the longest and the hardest, far exceeding any past kindergartner and having his number line wrap around the room 1.75 times. His goal was to get to 1000, he stopped at 1076. I got into the classroom and photographed his line when he told me his was the only one to fully wrap around the room once. I highlighted his line in the pics and gave a star by the little mathematician. We are so proud of Soren's hard work and perseverance, but it is more fun to see how proud of his work he is. It took three bags to bring it home, and it now is re-hung up in his bedroom.
