Breakin' Out the Big Guns

Today, we broke out what the kids call "Big Pink."

Yes, it's a ginormous eraser.  I won it as a door prize at one of my Home Educators' League meetings.  I wasn't sure we would ever use it.

However, it seems as if TheBoy is a violent eraser user.  At least when the erasers are little and on the ends of a pencil.  They seem to just tear right off.  Maybe it's in the form -- a user error.

What I know is that "Big Pink" fits well in small hands.  And, to my pleasant surprise, it works quite well too.

I'm just interested to see if, as the year progresses, if "Big Pink" will be erased down to simply read "BIG," or some other partial-ness...

We can sort of measure the amount of mistakes that way, right?
Maybe I can make that into some sort of Math project.  Measuring?

If you don't make mistakes, you're not working on hard enough problems.  And that's a big mistake.  ~F. Wikzek
