  2. So my highly imaginative 4 year old had an idea. She went into the bathroom, took off her bottoms, and stuck toilet paper in her rear end and began to run around the house with the toilet paper flying behind her. When I saw her I sent her back to the bathroom thinking she was in the middle of taking care of business. Once I took her to the bathroom I questioned her if she just went potty. She looked at me with an innocent look saying that she didn't go potty - she just had a tail.:svengo::laugh: I couldn't help laughing at that point.
  3. I've lived in Canada for 3 years now, but I'm not Canadian (yet). We are in the GTA.
  4. Sorry, wrong link for my above post. It wouldn't let me edit it so here is the correct link for Mandarin TV shows online.
  5. My son was looking at a language tree on the computer and expressed great interest in learning to speak Hittite. :confused::tongue_smilie:
  6. My son told me that he liked school because he enjoyed learning. He said this with a big grin on his face. I had fun with him because he has been known to whine at times. I asked him to repeat it and then I asked his brother what he said. His brother told me "I'm not going to say that!" :lol:
  7. No, I don't think early readers are necessarily gifted or accelerated. I would say they are more likely to be gifted or accelerated, but there are so many other factors besides reading. To me gifted is not about academic achievements, but the way a person relates to the world. The gifted individuals I know feel things deeper and have a general sense of being intensely alive. That exuberance can show up academically through pursuit of passions and general intelligence, but it can also be absent academically if a child does not care about learning what the teacher/parent/school wants them
  8. watercolors markers stickers make toy animals talk to one another rotating toy boxes
  9. I totally agree. I am an example of that. I didn't like math, but it was my best subject.
  10. Interesting poll. I realize math and science often go together, but not in our house. My oldest's greatest strengths are in science and language arts. He doesn't like math. My younger son is in math, language arts, and creativity. He doesn't like science.
  11. What is there in Moby Dick that is not good for a 10 year old?
  12. I don't plan for my son to graduate high school until 18, but he is free to take any college classes when he is ready for them. He is doing his first college class this year (video lectures only, no outside assignments or tests) and loves it.
  13. I usually read in the afternoon, but it can vary. The amount can vary too depending on how alert I am. Sometimes I have to skip the read aloud for the day because I know it will be a huge struggle. Sometimes I can read 2-3 chapters and other times it is hard to make it through one page. It does get funny sometimes though because if you fall asleep in the middle of a sentence you can put words into the sentence that aren't there. We have had many laughs :tongue_smilie::tongue_smilie: There is no way I could read in the morning and be alert.
  14. My kids would just respond with the grade level I tell them they are in. They are in grades according to their ages (Kindergarten and grade 2). The work they do has nothing to do with the grade they are in. I have one child that is doing grade level work a couple years ahead of his grade and another child that is all over the place (11 grade level span of skills).
