Are you smarter then a 5th grader?

No, would be my answer. Sadly, I have never gotten all the questions right on the show. I'm watching it now and they had a question about irregular nouns, and I swear I had never heard of an irregular noun in my 12 years of school or my 4 years of college. Granted my degree is Special Education, not English, but how did I make it to the age of 23 and never hear of an irregular noun? In any case, anyone else not smarter then a 5th grader?

  • I love that show, but I can't believe some of the questions they ask. I don't get them all right either.

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one with this irregular noun situation! Apparently its a noun that you can't just add S to to make it plural. For example leaf is a noun, leaves is an irregular noun... who knew?

  • Well it makes sense that the kids know, because they learned the information last year... versus an adult who learned it 20+ years ago and has forgotten it. But I swear some of the questions I was never taught in school!
