The Museum of Man (San Diego) has this cool glyph math worksheet which he very much enjoyed, and after he was done working out the glyph values, he rewrote the numbers in a traditional base 5 manner. So that first number with the three dots and one bar is an 8 in our base 10 system... or 13 if you write it in base 5.
We also did a storytelling exercise (fiction! lies!) springboarding off today's poem, "Invisible Boy" by Shel Silverstein. After a few false starts, George got very into it and described an entire scenic vista of a fierce, invisible kraken mother lovingly feeding an invisible ship of screaming sailors to her little, invisible kraken baby.

Today’s poem was a great poem! I want an invisible copy of it.
