Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

Good for you.  Pretty sure I'm not.  In fact,

I don't think I'm smarter than a 4th grader either.
Or a 3rd grader.
And have you seen what they're doing in 2nd grade these days?
1st grade is no walk in the park either.
Which leads me to kindergarten.  I'll get to that in a moment.

I do preschool. 

1+1=2
blue+red= purple
and there are 7 days in a week

I was helping B with his homework the other night about solid figures. 

B needed help.  Then I needed help.
I asked my husband if this was a sphere or a cylinder.  He said sphere.  He's such a showoff sometimes.
I, on the other hand, said "No, I think it's a cylinder."  I googled.  I hate it when I'm wrong.

This led to a little self-analyzation on my part.  Maybe this is why I loved teaching preschool.  The kids thought I was brilliant which led me to believing I was brilliant.  When, in fact, I might be about as sharp as a marble.  By the way, a marble is a sphere.
