Amen, kid. You do you.
"It says to show my thinking by drawing pictures or a number story. Can't I just keep my thinking in my head? I already got the right answer."
Amen, kid. You do you.
"Wait, if Pete has been in the woods by himself since he was really little, and doesn't go to school or have a family, how would he know all those words? How would he know how to talk at all?"
Deep thoughts at bedtime reading time. But he's right! #LanguageArtsWithLittleGuy just became more than a silly hashtag!
Little Guy: I used to think it was PENNSYL-vania, but then I realized it's PENNSYLV-ania.
The rest of us: 🤔😒😕
Haha he literally said the same thing, with a slightly different split.
I explained the actual "Penn's Woods" meaning, then Anthony added that they took all those trees and turned them into pencils, and that's why it's pronounced PENCIL-vania.

"I don't think that's what she meant..."
"It doesn't say I have to write 6 sentences, it just says pick 6 words!"
