Reasoning Out

Last minor exam, Gabbie got -1 in her score because she did not include the toy teddy bear to the things that belong to a baby, despite teacher's instruction to include it. She said "It belongs to a kid, not babies." And that it is not in the book that they previously discussed and reviewed. I told her that she also has a teddy bear toy in her room (so she must be familiar with it) but she said "But I'm not a baby anymore!"

Yesterday, she got a "?" mark in her seatwork for not coloring the milk (teacher said color the pictures that begin with letter M) because "Milk is just white, mommy. I don't need to color it." I had to explain to the teacher that she knows that milk begins with letter M but she did not color it because she believed that milk is just white. The teacher kind of "forced" her to color the picture using any color but she only colored the bottle cap (tansan) not the entire bottle, because again, "Milk is just white."

(oo nga naman, we're talking about the milk inside the bottle, how can we color it? and if it's the bottle that we're talking about, then it is not correct to color it, because bottle begins with letter B, not M. vague talaga)

I'm beginning to think that Gabbie can not work in a government office in the future. Or that she would prefer to run her own business than to work for somebody else.

Or she could also be a lawyer?
