Yesterday’s Sentence Weaver lesson featured the distinction between:
Which circles are biggest?
Where are the biggest circles?
The answers were things like:
“the circles in the middle [are biggest]”
“the biggest circles [are in the middle]”
He was not getting it at all.
Actually, I think he was getting one question & not the other, but I was too preoccupied trying to teach him what left-right-middle and top-bottom-middle meant to write down which question was which.
Anyway, I could almost hear him thinking:
These are all the same words!
What the hell?
Maybe I should be teaching him Latin instead.
