The Big 5 and small 5

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia Rexselin @ 3:22 pm

Ivan is having his quarterly exams and its real tough to get him to study or write anything.
Its not that he doesn’t understand. Sometimes he understands too much and is very playful and naughty.
The day before I sat with him and was helping him write numbers 1 to 10. He will write one number and would then get playful and start dancing. We were writing the number 5 and I was giving instructions like, ” put a sleeping line, then a standing line and then a curve”.
But his curve went very deep that it looked like a protruded belly. To my astonishment he named the big 5 as Judy mama (my brother has a nice round tummy). Then he put a very small 5 with a very small curve and called it Ivan. How do I deal with this little fellow?
