literal thinking

I was grading my fourteen year old’s vocabulary homework. His last three answers were individual letters,circled. Confused, I looked at his book. It is a workbook,but like most homescholing families we do not mark in our workbooks. The kids always write their answers on a separate sheet of paper.
The instructions stated : Circle the letter of the correct word pair.
So he did.

    Sounds like he followed directions perfectly. 😀

    I have a literal five year old and can see her doing something like that when she’s older. This morning, she was doing a phonics exercise on the computer and was instructed to “point and click on the correct answer”. She remarked that it was difficult. I looked over just in time to see her clicking the mouse with one hand and pointing at the screen with the other.
