Katie's English lessons are focusing on how to write a research paper. I'll confess, this is not my favorite teaching point. Unfortunately, it's very necessary - just ask Ben and Emily who are both writing plenty of papers these days!
I was reading out loud to Katie from the teacher's guide, "To begin the writing process all you need is A) a pencil, and B) paper."
Suddenly Emily stomped into the room and bellowed at us, "All you really need is A) MONITOR and B) KEYBOARD! They need to update that book!!!"
