My Calendar is Bigger Than Yours

I am homeschooling a 7 year old girl second grade. Her name is Esli. Many of you know her through my previous posts. Homeschooling can be so much fun.

Teacher: When is your birthday?

Student: November 26

Teacher: What day is November 26 on?

Student: (Looking closely at the calendar) Hmm. It's on Monday. But on my calendar at home it's on Sunday.

Teacher: Is your calendar at home this year's calendar?

Student: Yes.

Teacher: Then it should also be on Monday.

Student: No no, my birthday on my calendar is on a different day because my calendar at home is bigger than yours.....( sigh )...it is SO hard to teach teachers.

Can YOU repeat all 66 books of the Bible by memory?
