Tiny Talk Tuesday

Abbey (6, in Kindergarten) is apparently self-learning math. Because I assure you, I have nothing to do with any learning she has experienced!

She called Pat and I over to look at the notebook she was writing in. I was expecting to see a lovely picture of a butterfly or a girl. Abbey points down at the page and says, "ten take away five plus three is eight." So I quickly think (10-5=5+3=8) - ohmygoodness! I laughed and asked her where she's seen that before and she tells me, "I didn't. I just KNOW."

To prove her point, a few minutes later she tells me that "one-hundred take away one-hundred equals zero." And when I exclaim that she's right again she giggles and says, "I thought that was right. It makes sense." Cute, smart, and humble - that's my girl!


Meg (5) was in the back yard gardening with Grandma. Grandma, not really expecting an answer, asks Meg where her dad keeps the spade. "Do you want the blue one or the green one?" asks Meg.

Surprised, Grandma asks Meg if she knows what a spade is. "No!" giggles Megan as she runs off across the yard. 'I don't know what the object is that you're looking for, but I'm sure you can find it in any colour you wish...'

For more Tiny Talk, stop over and see Mary at Not Before 7.
