Just one of the benefits of being a yonger sibling


Today during school I was helping Alex with one of his math problems. I read him the comprehension problem.

Me to Alex - it's asking what is 37+43? (He begins thinking)

Isaac (immediately) - it's 80. 

Me - wow, that's right! How'd you even know that?
I was thinking maybe he was just guessing, then I was pleasantly surprised with his reasoning skills.

Isaac - Because, 7 plus 3 is 10 so that makes 40 plus 40 is 80.

And who says the younger ones aren't listening as we teach the older ones? I guess that's one of the many blessings of homeschooling. The younger ones listen and learn as we teach the older ones!
