This boy of mine constantly surprises us! His general knowledge is great and very often hubby and I can't answer his questions and have to google the stuff he tells us. Just a couple of days ago he said to me:
"Mom, dad's boss is a BOURGEOISIE and dad is a PROLETARIAT."
?????? I felt so uneducated at that moment. Had to ask my son to explain to me what he meant!
Later in the day he set up a play bank and he talked about capitalism, socialism, communism and then went on to tell me that he used someone's idea of setting up a bank but he did not claimed it to be his idea....so no PLAGIARISM!
Crazy isn't it??? He talks like an adult! Just out of curiosity, I asked him what is a free market and gosh... he was able to explain to me with examples.
His first bank :)
Reese doesn't like to write but prefers to answer everything orally. Since he is still young, I allow it. Few days back, being the last minute mother, I told him that he has a science presentation to do the very next day. I wanted to do some revision on the topic but he said no. So fine..... got him some art block paper and told him to prepare his presentation. He sprang into action and 45 minutes later he showed me a human body with all the necessary organs for digestion to happen and a summary of it. I did not help him except with using the correction pen when he needed it. Check out what he wrote and drew below. Amazing.
45 minutes work done spontaneously. No planning.
While I was teaching a class.... Reese decided to write on the white board and again I was surprised he knew so many famous people and their contribution to society... Oh... see my name? Reese thinks I am famous too. :)
The Famous People Shelf
Yesterday Reese did a 'newspaper article'. He called his paper The Star Spangled Paper. He can actually write quite well considering he hardly write anything! Don't you think so?
The Star Spangled Paper
Few months back we met with a psychologist to have Reese accessed. We were told his general knowledge is equivalent to a 13 year old. How did he do it? Reading books and using the internet.
