My son came home from the first week of kindergarten. Each day I asked him:
"What did you learn at school today?"
When I ask his teacher what they've been learning - she said:
"We've been learning the letters C. A. and T. "
My daughter two years ago could tell me each letter she learned each day in kindergarten, and the mnemonics and stories they had for each letter.
From recollection - my mother would ask me as a child
"What did you learn at school today."
Externally I would say,
Internally I would think,
"I don't think you're really interested. If you were, you'd make me a milkshake, sit me at the table and ask me. Then I could really concentrate on answering properly."
My question is: Is there evidence to suggest that young boys articulate their learning differently to girls?
