Homework

There is a second grader who happens to live in our house, who is not fond of homework.  If I had to  guess, at least once a week there are tears.  Sometimes more.

He likes things to be easy.... or for someone to simply give him the answers.  Unfortunately, homework isn't always easy for him, and I definitely won't be telling him the answers.

Help him find them though?

Absolutely.

Last night we were working on spelling words.  His test is today.  He broke out into massive giggles every time I asked him to spell "duties".  After all, he does "duties" in the toilet.  HAhaaaaaaaaa.......  yep, he is definitely a boy!

Anyway, here we are, working on spelling words.

And there aren't any tears :)



(pay no attention to my nasty middle finger.  Slammed that baby hard in the door.  When did I do that you ask?  The week before HALLOWEEN!)

Sounds like we are having the same homework experience on a weekly basis...tears, frustrations...my little miss is only in 1st grade.

It's always a good day when they are having fun during homework.

Oh and it isn't just boys who find all those type of words funny ;)

Thank goodness my boys are pretty good about homework - they don't like it but they know they have to get it done and get back out the door for evening sports!

I thought you were doing statement nails and getting all fancy on us :)

My second grader is hit or miss....he gets all frustrated and has tears some days....other days he sits right down and cranks it out all by himself. I wish it were the "other" days everyday :)
