Of cats and clean houses

February 23, 2009

Primary Language Lessons is a great tool to teach children to speak and write English correctly. I am really enjoying using it for our studies.  However, the volume was written in the early 1900’s.  Thus some of the topics covered are a bit irrelevant (e.g. the care of pets speaks of caring for ponies).  Today Benjamin needed to read questions silently and answer them in complete statements.  Some of his responses made me laugh out loud.  Thought I would share them with you.

Q:  When does a cat shed its fur?

A:  When it gets really tight!

Q: Of what use is a cat about a house or barn?

A:  To clean it.

Q: What does a cat eat?

A: Cat food.

We don’t have a cat.  But I am thinking about getting one now … to keep our house clean!
