There have recently been many news articles about how this (our!) generation of parents think their children should not be assigned homework (or, worse yet, just refuse to do what is assigned!). Well, as an educator and as a parent, I'm here to tell you that homework is important, meaningful, something we will continue to do.
I wanted to share that our kindergartener, at the age of 5, completed this book report. We did it together and it was amazing! We read Elmer, she answered the questions about it with me assisting with spelling, and she made this cute elephant pumpkin!
She was proud and we enjoyed doing it together.
