Mommy, Can We Google …

mommy-can-we-google“Mommy, can we google …” has been a FAVORITE question from the boys. I just NEVER know what question is going to come out of their mouth, and can almost never figure out where the question came from. Their questions reveal a lot about what’s going on in their minds, so I love when they ask them … and, clearly, they have it figured out that Google knows more than mommy.

I have tried for a couple years to track some of their questions, just for the pure sweetness of them. But I am not that organized. It finally hit me – I should make “Mommy, can we google…” a weekly routine. I made them copy work sheets and Tuesday is dedicated to their question asking. In place of all other copy work they write out their questions for Google.

I read over the questions, find the answers for them, and on Thursday we look at the material together.

It’s been a fun activity to do together, and I am going to try to share our “Mommy, can we google…” questions and answers on Fridays now!


This weeks “Mommy, can we google” questions & answers:
