homework


OK... let me remind you that Andrew is in Kindergarten... Yes folks Kindergarten and he has geometry homework (otherwise known as "everyday math").  A homework folder is sent home every week with pages for him to complete and return the following week... along with a reading book, and everyday math projects.  Although I sometimes have to nag a bit to get him going he really loves his homework projects.  So this is what he is working on today.  They had to build shapes (3-D) using mini marshmallows and toothpicks and then answer a series of questions about which shape used the most number of marshmallows or toothpicks, which structures held their shapes the best and so on.  Andrew loves building thing so this project was right up his alley.

Isn't it amazing how our kids learn stuff in elementary school that we didn't learn until high school and have since forgotten. Bob and I go crazy trying to"help" with homework when we don't even know what we are doing.
Homework is hardest on parents these days isn't it? Looks like Andrew was enjoying it though.
