The Kid Is Smart!

I'm not biased or anything....

Really though he it amazes me what he picks up on and learns so quickly.  Most things good, others not so good, but that's another post!

Cade was playing the Wii (SURPRISE!!) the other night and he actually chose to play a game other than Mario Kart.  He loves math and numbers and puzzles and anything else related.  He was playing my Big Brain Academy Wii Degree game and chose a game where you have to count how many balls of two different colors go into a basket then choose which color had more go in. 

Anyway, I had to take this video and post it to show just how bright my little man can be. J

The last time he played this particular game, we had to help him out to get the right answer and I know we gave him a few tips, but this was the first time he actually counted them like this.  I asked Cory if he told him to do that and he said he hadn't.  Another thing he's done before while playing Mario Kart is exclaim how many cars behind Cory he is, based on their places in the pack (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.)  We didn't teach him that either. 

We don't have to wonder where this talent mathematics came from.  Cory's has an engineering degree and me?  Ha.  Let's just say there's a reason I worked with 4 year olds.

That's awesome! I love watching people demonstrate what they've learned for the first time. It's why I became a teacher.
