So, these cute kids have been doing a good job of working on their homework. Jakob has a lot of it this year. Math every night, spelling and writing alternating every other week, reading each night, on top of little projects every now and then. Isabelle wants to work on her writing when Jakob is working on his homework. She wants to write everything and will ask how to spell different words. I’ve been letting Jakob play when he gets home from school. My philosophy is that he has been in school all day and needs some downtime. They usually work on their homework while I’m in the kitchen getting dinner ready. It works out well for us right now.
Right now I’m just enjoying this phase of evening homework time, knowing that it may change as we change, but that it is working well for us now.
