This morning I was helping my five-year-old daughter with her Webkinz. You have to play games and do chores to earn W dollars to buy food and accessories for them. Otherwise your animals die of hunger and overexposure. Well, not really, but the threat remains.
So, we were on a beginners' level math quiz where you have to answer 50 multiple choice math questions before they allow you to work at the grocery. Kinda like the training at Kroger, I assume. I was reading the questions to her and letting her answer those she could. If you have three apples and give one away, how many do you have? That was an easy one.
I got to the one that asked: What is a graph used for? and she looked at me and said, "What the hell's a graph?"
It might an interesting year in kindergarten.
