Advanced Grade 1 Science

Every day I ask my son what he did in school that day. Apparently they do nothing at school, or they’re wiping his memory at the end of the school day because usually he says, “I don’t remember.”

Yesterday he told us that they were “teleporting water.”

Me: What are you doing at school?

Son: Teleporting water.

Me: Is this for your science class?

Have I missed something huge going on in the scientific community? Teleporting seems a little advanced for grade one science. I didn’t even think it was possible.

Son: No, we do it at recess.

So now they’re doing independent science experiments on the playground. Is this for extra credit? Am I going to be able to help at all when the time comes for homework to be done? Is there any adult supervision?

Me: So, you teleport water with your friends at recess. How does it work?

Son: We collect the water in a bag and then teleport it to a puddle.

Transport, teleport, tomato, tomahto, right?

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. We have the same child. That’s good, maybe we could time share or something.

  2. With that vivid imagination, no wonder he is in an advanced class! He and my Jack would get along great!
