Here is some insight to my 5 year old pre-schooler:
Lando: Mom, am I going to be a bus student or a car student next year?
Me: I don't know. I have to find out where and when Ivan needs dropped off. We will see.
Lando: (Exasperated Sigh) Just go to www. school.com, then find Kindergarten. Next, see bus and car. Find my name!
Dad: Lando, what did you learn at school today?
Lando: We learned about maps.
Dad: Maps are cool!
Lando: Ya, my teacher has a map that goes in her car. She puts her house and then where she wants to go and it tells her.
Me: A GPS?
Lando: Ya, a GPS. Those are cool maps!
Lando: Mom, huge and humongous rhyme!
Me: They mean the same thing, but they don't rhyme. They both mean big.
Me: Lots of words mean big. Huge, humongous, large, great, big, enormous. When words mean the same thing, they are called synonyms.
Lando: (long pause, wheels turning). Mom, Synonyms and M&M's rhyme!!!
