With the exception of a two page homework packet that Link gets done in about ten minutes on Monday, reading seems to be the only homework that the boys have this year. HURRAY! After fighting with them to pick out books at the library this summer, I decided to go when they were at school and pick out some books that I thought they would enjoy. So far, so good!
We are on our second set of books and no complaints!!
We've also constituted a no video games Monday-Thursday rule. Besides the minor grumblings (Link said his childhood is ruined), it's going well! As I type this, they are upstairs playing legos!
It seems we are all happy with second and fifth grade!
