State of the Union with the kid

Elder daughter had homework tonight that consisted of watching the State of the Union address and marking off, on a Bingo card type of thing, when he happened to say certain things (like "bi-partisan" or "Burma") or when things happened (like the Supreme Court standing up or Condoleeze Rice being featured on camera).

Maybe next time I'll make my own, with things like "Guy sleeping in audience" and "Republican side stands up, Democrat side doesn't."

He hasn't said "election" yet, or "tax credit." He has, however, mispronounced "nuclear" several times. :)

I'll be interested in hearing how they use this in her class tomorrow.




Oh, I haven't had a chance to read my flist in a few days and am not sure when I'll get to it, so if there's something you need me to know, um, let me know? :)

Not all that important, but wanted to let you know that I got engaged on Saturday. That way you won't be all confused when you do get a chance to see my journal. ^_^

The bingo card thing sounds awesome and funny. It's interesting to see how bingo and the state of the union can be turned into a fun, educational learning experience.

I just realized that I missed an excellent opportunity to turn it into a drinking game.

I'm curious to see if I predicted correctly. Did he pat himself on the back for his "success" in Iraq?
