Monday, January 10, 2011

10/365 January 10, 2011

Monday is "Homework Day". William brings home his homework folders home on Monday and back on Friday. Monday I make him do at least two of the assignments. This week was probably his most yet - five papers of homework.

I try to schedule it so that we don't do homework on Thursday's, but sometimes that just isn't possible.  At any rate, I like to "knock" more of it out earlier in the week so we have time to play. That's how I was always told to do things and how I've carried on through life.  Chores first, play later.
I let him choose which order he would like to do the assignments.  Today he chose to work off of his calendar.  Each month he gets a sheet of activities to choose from and he must do three a week.  I call that a one paper assignment.  Most are small and easy.  Off of this sheet he chose to recite his alphabet, write his numbers, call a "friend" -which he chose my brother, and help fix dinner.  As you can see above, he also chose to work on his number page.

Today Rawni had homework too.  She is struggling to write her name, but we are working on it, and she is making progress.
She has a short attention span, so she needs a little more one on one with academics.  She enjoys "saving" her homework to do with "brother" so we did.  Today they were even more adorable because he was helping her understand the letters and explaining how to write them.

I love these two!  And, I love Monday's.  Am I the only one?
