Annabelle and I are working on her "homework" for their "100th Day of School" celebration.  She has to count 100 of something.  We picked dinosaur shaped sprinkles.  As we were starting to count them, I said, "There are 5 different colors of sprinkles.  Why don't we sort them by color equally.  If there are 5 colors, how many do you think we'd need of each color?"  I was fully expecting to go over the counting with her to figure this out, but instead she immediately (seriously, like within 2 seconds) replied "20!"  I said, "That's right, how did you know that?" (thinking may she had just guessed, but nope...) She replied "Because 20 5 times is 100!"
That's right!
