Giving Fair Coverage

In the past I have posted things here which my daughter has written for school. Today I want to give fair coverage.
Joshua was given an assignment in math class to write a paragraph comparing math to an animal. What do you think?

I can compare math to a Turtle. It goes by so slow and is so boring. When turtles get caught in nets they will try to claw and bite their way out. When I have to go to math class I am caught in a net and want to claw and bite my way out. In spite of these problems when a turtle tries hard enough it can get through everything.

Precious, isn't he? *grin*

I love it! And for the record, he summed up my feelings pretty well about Math too! *wink*

So cool!! He's a smart cookie. Even though he doesn't like math, he has the confidence to conquer it! :o)

This is great! I especially like that he ended it on a positive note -- good attitude! :)

Cindy said...

That is too cute! I have never liked math. His comparison was right on!

Patricia - I always thought math and art went together!? *grin*

Jodi - I think he can conquer it, but he's got to set his mind to it first.

Amanda - It helps that he likes turtles so much, so he had plenty of thoughts to use for comparison.

Ronel - The thing is, I LOVED math. Hard for me to understand his disdain for it. But I try. *wink*

Sara - So good to see you!
I'm working with him on that positive attitude thing. Not an easy task!

Cindy - I'll tell Joshua he's got some supporters for his view. *grin*

Mary - He has no clue! And I can't figure out how to convince him. *sigh*
