We’ve heard that the elementary schools are teaching what everyone calls “new math”. As we don’t have kids who attend elementary just yet we’ve been asking other parents what it entails and they all just shrug because they don’t get it.
After dinner tonight I think we finally have a handle on it.
We were trying to introduce Rylee to the wonderful world of addition.
Bill had just helped her discover that 2 + 3 = 5. Then he asked, “What is 5 + 1?” That’s when Brynn piped up and said, “Purple!”.
This is going to keep me laughing for a few days!
