Day 61 True Confessions Tuesday: Homework
Homework - we do not love thee.
Tuesday is homework day in our house.
I know that most teachers would prefer we did a little bit each day, but I'd much rather get it all over in one hit - that way we can have a couple of days where we can just relax after school.
Unfortunately that system does not work with Ashlea. As you can see from the photo she just does not have the stamina after school to sit down and do half an hour of homework. I can barely get 5 minutes out of her before she collapses with exhaustion.
Does anyone else encourage their children to pick the easiest of the homework tasks?? Last week we could 'research and write facts about elephants' or 'help clear the table after dinner'. Um - not hard to guess which task we're going to choose!
Wish me luck - homework time starts NOW!
