Son's Social-studies Assessment Sheet-
"Name a fruit which has one seed."
The teacher had marked it as incorrect, and I agreed with her. Wasn't 'mango' one of my son's favourite fruits? Why couldn't he write that instead of 'cary', whatever it may be.
But what was 'cary'? I tried the word is several ways, and got it on the third attempt- 'Cherry'. A cherry does have one seed. He has spelt it wrong, but deserved some marks for trying.
I suggested that to the teacher. "But the answer is mango", she told me.
There wasn't much left to say.
