I had my first experience with the homework blues yesterday. Jett is usually eager to do school work (how did I get so lucky??) and his teacher has the brilliant philosophy that kids need… wait for it… family and play time after 7 hours at school, not more worksheets. Like I said, Brilliant!
However, Jett has a mental block when it comes to regrouping (adding and subtracting numbers while carrying and borrowing). His teacher sent home some math he wouldn’t complete in class, and I got to witness first hand the massive frustration kids sometimes get with homework.
There was pencil throwing. There was storming out of the room. There was yelling (mine and his).
Homeschool next year? I must be crazy.
