Here's how you play "Uh-oh ZERO"... write the numbers 0-5 on slips of paper and put them in a bag. Have the child stand on one side of the room, and then you draw out a number. The child reads the number, and then jumps that many places towards the wall on the opposite side of the room. If you pull out a zero, the child yell, "uh-oh ZERO" and runs back to the starting wall. The point was to get to the opposite wall, but my son didn't care about that; he just wanted to jump and read the next number.
I added a bit of excitement with Aikman when I told him that I was a whale, and he was a fish, and I was looking for food when the zero was announced. Needless to say, he thought it was hilarious and exciting to be "chased" back to the start.
On another note, I've been working on my "classroom" (formerly the spare bedroom). I've gotten a lot of it set up, but waiting until it is all done before I post pictures. With the shortage of space in this room, I've come up with a new way to display work.... I can't wait to see what you have to say about it!
