Sometimes, at the end of a long day(s), when things are feeling heavy, David the Squirrel might just come to the rescue.
Besides that this makes my dear boy look like a complete mess, his solution to this problem was just what we all needed. (I promise, he is a much better reader than this--I'm really not sure what happened here--but, alas, it did.)
So...he read "divide" as "David" and "square" as "squirrel." And, oh my, the whole thing as "Draw David the Squirrel in a square and two rectangles."
I sat down to correct his work and said, "What exactly did you do here? Where are the lines? And what is this?" (Always ask.)
T: I know! That one was so silly! David the squirrel! Who is that? I thought that one was just really funny.
Yep. It was.
And then we all laughed. A lot. Because we seriously needed a good laugh. :)
