In helping my fourth grader with his math homework this week, I couldn’t help but notice he’d “x’d” out a box on his crossword, and added an additional box on another part of the crossword. I explained to him that the beauty of the crossword for homework was that if the answer he discovered did not fit in the box, THEN it was an INCORRECT answer.
“The crossword is wrong. That’s why I had to change it.”
Where did these people come from???
