‘Worksheets’ by Josh



Josh had been writing equations for us to do –see:
Equations

All of us would be quizzed based on this. He said that he gave Zoë an easy one because she’s only 2.5 years old and then he asked me to write one for him, too, but not to make it too difficult. When he saw that I wrote 6 + 1, he had this huge smile on his face and said, “That’s so easy. It’s 7!”

I found out from his teachers at school yesterday during our Parent-Teacher Conference that he had been doing the same with them. He would write out equations and ‘test’ them to see if they would know the answers to the equations that he had written down.

Today, I got a new sketch book for Josh and upon coming home from school, he immediately set to work. Within minutes, he presented me with this:

Spot the difference

I was supposed to “Spot the Differences” between the two drawings.

I played ‘Teacher’ and all that when I was younger, but I don’t think I ever presented my teachers and my parents with worksheets for them to do!

What a great mind! Fabulous that he is so interested in teaching, hopefully he is just as keen to learn!

It's so cute to see his chinese characters in the last picture! BTW, what was the result of all that school room interviewing from last week? Did he make it into your first choice school?

Your last line was exactly what I was thinking. I played teacher but never quizzed my actual teacher.

It's ingenius really...make sure the people who are teaching you actually know what THEY are doing!

The little guy just has to make sure his educators know what they're doing. I love his drawings. He's going to keep you on your toes, Mom.

Have a super day with a blessing 'round every corner.
