|That's a lot of ducks!|
In the end, Ping finds his family, but he must decide whether or not to join them, as he knows he will be spanked for being late! He decides it is worth it.
But the part of Ping that the girls picked up on yesterday was the numbers. Ping's family is described several times as consisting of Ping, his mother and his father, two sisters and three brothers and eleven aunts and seven uncles and forty-two cousins. (Love the large family).

Next we added Ping's eleven aunts. Campster knew that eleven would be a ten and a one. By making the largest block a ten, it shows place value. Now we have a total of ten and nine - which is nineteen - or twenty minus one.
|Seven uncles = Six plus one|
Last we added the forty-two cousins. Campster grabbed four tens and a two. Hard to "read" it this way, though. Let's put all the tens together, and then the ones.
Isn't math fun?
Wish you were here!
