Once Upon A Time…A “Found” Narrative

“Once upon a time there [were] numbers. They were playing.”

I found this Montessori “work” by my three-year-old among the other wrinkled papers in his take-home pile. It is a story of numbers. His hand traced the numbers with a pencil, providing practice in early writing. He then told a simple little oral narrative about these numbers dictated by his teacher. His crooked little scribbles are practice and play in math and early literacy.
