On Fridays, Morgan brings home her homework folder and notebook. They are to turn the folder and notebook back in the following Friday. I've never seen someone so excited to do their homework. All during the camping trip she practiced her homework (we didn't want to bring the orginal notebook with us in case it got ruined outside). Yesterday, she filled out her notebook. Here was their assignment:
1. Write the letters of your child' s name on a separate piece ofpaper. Cut apart the letters and have your child glue their name backtogether in their homework notebook.
2. Have your child practice writing their name in their notebook 5 times.
3. Have your child draw 5 groups of 3 (three butterflies, three flowers, three cars, etc) in their homework notebook, and then practice writing the number three under each group.
4. Read a book to your child and have your child draw a picture of their favorite part in their homework notebook.
In addition to the homework sent out on Friday, students are expected to read 10 minutes daily with a experienced reader.
I can only hope she continues to love homework and the novelty of it does not wear out.
