Babess had her reading comprehension test this week, an individual test with her teacher. “How did it go?” I asked.
“Pretty well. I think I got it all right,” she tossed off nonchalantly.
“Oh? Well done, then.”
“The first thing we had to read was: ‘She looked out the window and gasped’. Mrs D said, ‘Why do you think she gasped?'”
Babess looked at me expectantly.
“Well, why do you think she gasped?”
“I said, ‘because she was in amazement’. Because that’s something that would make you gasp.”
It’s all so obvious when she explains the world.
