Just One Of the 738 Reasons I Love My Kids’ School

It’s back to school night tonight and K-3 doesn’t have homework. Alexander is thrilled, and I don’t blame him.

Jane was telling me she loves her fifth Grade teacher because she, “deals in reality”. Reality means that you can check your math with a calculator (they exist in the real world), many tests will be open book (resources exist in the real world), and the fifth grade has homework tonight, because the reality of it is that kids don’t attend back to school night.

Yeah baby. We’ve got a teacher who gives kids work and has them understanding why they’ve got to do it. Jane’s happy, I’m happy, still Alexander is happiest.

Quiet time is almost over, I’ve got kids to play with.

  2. My kids go to a Montessori elementary and they have no homework as most of us traditionally think of it, because the kind of things they work on at school don’t lend themselves to homework assignments. Instead, families are encouraged to “work together” at home – preparing dinner, taking care of the home, etc. I think it’s pretty great! And yeah, maybe a little hippe-dippie, but it seems to be working. :-)
