If I have learned anything the last week and a half, it is that our girls think very differently from the test makers. :)
Here are two examples of what I am talking about.
She was given a map of a school (top view) and everything was labeled from the street to the parking lot, play ground, cafeteria, classrooms... etc.
She was asked, "Which classroom is located closest to the play ground?" There was a classroom that was right up against the wall to the playground. She didn't pick that one. (it was the correct answer) Instead, she picked a class that was the first class in the next hallway, that wasn't that close to the play ground. So I asked her why?
She said, because the door to the class room is in the hall way and you would have to walk all the way down that hall up the next and then turn to get to the play ground. The other class room is the one that if you walked out that dor, you would be there first! She was correct, IF you are thinking as a student being in a classroom. LOL
Howard had some metal shavings that he placed in a circle on a white sheet of paper.
He held a magnet over the paper and documented how many shavings he picked up at different distances. (there is a chart that shows ALL shavings picked up at 1/4 inch
most shavings at 3/4 inch, some a 1 inch and none at 3 inches.
The question was, at what distance did the MOST shavings get picked up. She answered 3/4 inch. I asked her about it. She said, they didn't say all, they said most and at 3/4 inch is when MOST got picked up! LOL
Ahhhh. we are almost done!
What ever happened to simple reading comprehension, vocabulary and math?
