At-home learning isn’t a new concept for parents — especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — but Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade are flipping the script in a new video posted to Instagram. The couple is letting daughter Kaavia James, 3, teach the lessons!

In a hilarious home video posted to Instagram Monday, Kaavia plays an adorable school teacher for her family. Kaavia is standing up in her pajamas in the video, while her family is sitting down (a little cramped) inside her playhouse.

“A bird, a coconut, and a monster — that’s what the lesson is today in school?” one of the adults asks Kaavia, to which she replies, “Yes” and twirls around. Union is shown making a surprised look at the camera before nodding.

Later, her dad Wade raises his hand to ask a question, and Union tells Kaavia that she thinks he was “trying to go to the bathroom to try to get out of school.” Kaavia looks at him and says, “You’re coming back.” Then Union says, “So, it’s Kaavia’s school where we learn about Kaavia.” Sounds like the best school ever!

Union added text to the video saying, “@kaaviajames does her Joe Clark impression. #LeanOnMe,” referencing Principal Joe Clark, played by Morgan Freeman, in the film Lean on Me. She also captioned the video, “@kaaviajames basically said ‘JUMP! Do it expeditiously!’ Her version of school is straight outta #LeanOnMe and @dwyanewade is ‘Sams’ and I, of course is the teacher’s pet,” adding several laughing face emojis. “Poor @chefrli just stuck!!” she added, referring to the couple’s personal chef Richard Ingraham, who was also in the video.

This isn’t the first time Kaavia has nailed what it’s like to be a grown-up. In a video posted Dec. 29, she was seen talking on a pink phone, feet in the air, looking around while another kid talked her ear off. This little girl is so stinkin’ cute, and it’s obvious she has her parents (and anyone else who meets her) wrapped around her finger. I can’t get enough Kaavia videos!

Bozoma Saint John, chief marketing officer of Netflix, summed it up perfectly in her comment on the post: “I swear every time I see Kaavia in the post, I stop what I’m doing to listen to her antics.” We couldn’t agree more.
