In praise of holiday homework
Holiday homework may have saved my sanity.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24
The problem with these holidays is that they are so long, I am already repeating myself. Putt-putt again, Mom?
Holiday homework to the rescue! I'd like to shake the hand of the teacher who came up with the idea of wordsearches and maths puzzles as a fun way to keep the brain alert until the end of the FIFA World Cup. For me, it's half an hour a day when I read my book, smiling encouragingly at regular intervals.
Parent24 blogger Ebony & Ivory
has come up with a craft challenge idea, so if you have creative kids, that might be worth a try.
