I hate homework. I hate the idea. I hate the word.
When my kids get home from school and sports, I want family time. Since they've been gone all day, the last thing I want to patrol the kitchen yelling things like, "Can you sit down?!" or "Focus people!!" or "If you have to pick your nose, don't wipe it on your homework, use a tissue!"
When I was a kid I had homework but it wasn't much and it was easy. (not cause I was smart, but cause the world was easy). "Fun" is all I remember...playing outside for hours.
I try to make their homework fun or worldly...like when learning complicated boring spelling words, every word with a letter F, you have to say "fart." (doesn't work with PH!) It's fun, ridiculous, but at least I can break from being police lady and have a giggle too.
Any more creative homework ideas to cease the inner-yelling-boss?
