Cats are a kind of alien...

“Have  you finished your homework yet?”, I asked the (nearly) six-year old.
“I am thinking.”
“How long does it take you to think of ten interesting facts about a cat?”
“I can think of only three facts”, he insisted.  
“Okay, tell me. And I will help you with the rest.”
“Cats are a kind of alien, because when they are angry, their nails come out”, he began.
I struggled to keep the smile off his face, but realized why he had been struggling.

Shouldn’t a teacher be happy with a couple of such facts than a dozen more inane ones?

He's very creative, that's for sure. But he should easily be able to come up with more facts starting there, such as, where do cats come from? ^^

Such a cuties--yes, detailed facts should definitely count for more than simple ones.

I love his creativity! Yes, if I was a teacher, I would much rather have three facts like this than ten, humdrum everyday facts!

Happy Wednesday,
Jen
