When she came home from school, Miriam asked to stay home today. I suggested we do her second adding session. Miriam then countered that we should do math at Logo and use the computer. I agreed.
At the lab, while I was logging in, Miriam began playing with a pile of bricks and set them in a row to mark off a “stage.” Instead of doing math, we did “Goldilicks,” her version of the 3 bears story.
These incidents document the ways computation crops up in Miriam’s world.
