Maybe they were learning capitalization.
you have a first grader recently?....
interestingly just showed it to my wife and she's like of course it's Peg.... so I guess it's one of those things that will be so obvious to some and completely missed by others

I think it's the middle picture, the hat. You hang a hat on a peg. Simple!
Brevity may be the soul of wit, but floridity is its spirit.

Definitely confusing to the average frum kid (or adult) who likely never met a person with the name Peg. This kind of confusion happens pretty often when doing homework from common school books.

You must be a teacher.
Iím not. I am, however, the parent of a 6 yr old in the first grade. Sheís learning the basics of Common Core and I predict that will be a headache in the future.
Iíll say this- right now my daughter is learning English. Specifically- how to build a sentence. I would assume thatís what the homework sheet is about. Nouns...
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

It could be, I think part of the issue is that we as parents dont know what the lesson in school was that the homework is reviewing leaving us to try and deduce. Its the same issue with the new way they do math. Trust me, I can figure out what 8+4 is, but unless I know what the learning method of using "blocks" or whatever method they used that day, I'm clueless. Luckily my daughter is a good student and knows most of the info, but if she was struggling I'd be unable to help her.
