Finn brought home this "Theme Test" from the third day of school. He scored 100%. Always nice to see.
However, as I studied the test, I, myself, was stumped by question number 3.
"Mark the picture word that has the same middle sound as ham." He was supposed to circle the picture whose name had the same middle sound as ham.
His choices were:
a. a picture of the United States
b. a picture of a dog
c. a picture of the number 10
I was stumped.
I continued to stare at question number 3. Finn had marked "a" and apparently it was correct, but how did that picture of the U.S. sound the same as ham?
I gave up and asked Finn. Turns out that picture of the U.S. was a "map." OK, duh, I should have figured that out. BUT, do map and ham really have the same middle sound?
I just asked Eamonn, and he thinks no, too.
But I'm not going to question it. He got 100%. I'll just sit here and revel in my ignorance.
