First and foremost, research shows that homework for elementary aged children is not helpful (at best) and detrimental in many scenarios.
Secondly, as a parent? Survey says? It really stinks. I want to enjoy my time with my kiddos after they've been in school for seven hours every day. Not work on reading response, math practice or a worksheet.
If homework was useful? In my ideal world? It would look like this:
Lastly, if required . . . . it sometimes helps to do it on the trampoline. Even though it still sucks. IMHO. Just saying' ;-)
As an aside? I have a major project due tomorrow for my leadership cohort at the college. Ask me if I've started it? Um, no. And I am chaperoning a field trip for Halle in the morning. So I either need to pull it together NOW or possibly at 4:00 a.m. #procrastinator #lifelong #notmotivated #iworkbetterunderpressure
