First Fractions? Quarters


In a serendipitous coincidence, I had the opportunity to introduce Jackson to the word and concept of quarters both yesterday and today. First I let him play with our coin-sorting machine (choking hazard be damned!), and we talked about the different denominations of coins, including how quarters are one-fourth of a dollar.

And this morning we made waffles (Jackson kept calling them crackers), and I showed him how the four connected waffles could be detached and broken into quarters for freezing and later defrosted deliciousness.

I don't think he learned what a quarter is, but he is saying dollar and baking now!
