Clever Boy

I gave Kieran a printable worksheet that had some sentences and he had to choose the best word out of two options to fill in the blanks. You should have seen the look of disgust on his face at the whole idea of it! The first sentence went something like:

The (water or moon) orbits the Earth.

He couldn’t comprehend how silly a question it was–“as if anyone would choose water” were his exact words. He asked me the purpose of the format–and when I explained it was like a trick question to see if the children paid attention to what they read. He said “they should at least pick two things that were at least in the sky”. They’re going to have to try much harder to catch him out!
