Simple Math For A 7-Year-Old

Today as Grace and I are waiting for the bus she says, mom I know what 40 + 50 is.  I asked her what it was and she tells me 90.  Correct!!  She then says, "Mom, I also know what 60 + 20 is."  She proceeds to tell me the answer.  I then tell her how smart she is.  She says all you have to do is add 4 + 5 which is 9 and then add a zero.  I thought this was pretty cool for her to figure out.  We then continued with several more addition problems.  I enjoyed math as a child and I am happy and proud to see Grace enjoying it as I did.  Needless to say  am so proud of that girl!!
