Alec and I had another math lesson. I made up a story about Plus and Minus and some games they played and we worked on some addition and subtraction problems. We worked on single digit's up to twelve. He had done all of this last year and this was just a fun review for him. He was working on 6 plus 6 and he had 6 gems on either side of Plus and he looked at me with big eyes and said, "I get it! 6 plus 6 really does equal 12!" It had been a very abstract concept for him, until that point!
