Question to ponder:


Why is it that children can quote line after line of a movie they have watched exactly once, while the multiplication facts that you have drilled relentlessly every day remain only as wisps of a distant foggy memory?

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  1. Oh, so true! So true! I’ve gone to lots of CD type homeschool review things for just that reason. We have Hip-Hop History and can rap the Bill of Rights now.Let me go off and quote some Adventures in Odyssey…

  2. It is so much easier to get caught up in a movie & thus remember exactly who said what whereas multiplication tables are duller than a butter knife. 😆

    It wasn’t the multiplication or even the long division that my daughter stumbled over…it was any number plus or minus one! Explain that!

    And why can they never hear that it was time to clean up or get the toothbrushes, even if I yell, but can hear me whispering on the phone in the garage if I am trying to surprise them with a treat?

  6. Yeah, really!! it must be some kind of emotional link…how can we do that with the important things in life?

  7. Because 4 didn’t beat up 3 into 12 pieces.
