Sometimes we need to remember what we are trying to say, too! I had to
snicker at myself the other day. I was working with a student. I told him to
number his boxes (doing the grid technique). I looked away for a moment and
was about to have him go to the next step. Then I looked at his numbering -
1, 2, 4, 9, 43, 59, 62. I asked him what he did. He told me, "You said to
number the boxes. You did not say to put them into order!". Argh! :)
