Because I just got the first bulletin from my youngest daughter’s new teacher. And guess what? She does not believe in homework! I feel like I died and went to common sense heaven after reading her notes. All she asks, is that our children read 15 minutes a day.
I can do that. My daughter can do that. She can even do that with pleasure.
The teacher goes on to cite studies that have proven that kids who read a have an easier time understanding math problems. And that kids with high vocabularies learned them by…reading.
Of course, she is only a replacement teacher. She will be gone by spring break.
He (whoever he/it/she/us is) sure does giveth and taketh away at a quantum rate…
