Mom of two Mischievous Monkeys: Homework

Tuesday, November 8, 2011


So, N is in grade 4 this year (and French Immersion to add to it) and I know it's been awhile since I myself was in grade four (22 years to be exact). I did not think though that I would have forgotten so much of the work that was done in school, but apparently it is so. As if I wasn't struggling enough with the fact that is in another language now I can't even remember the stuff in English.

The other thing that occurs to me with all this is that if I don't remember it and clearly don't use it all the time, it is a struggle to sit N down and get him to complete all this, especially since homework can be such a struggle with him...

But I am buckling down and doing it, actually he is sitting beside me right now working away after having studied some for the test he has to re-write on Thursday. And I am planning to sign up to take a french course online too soon. Grade four has opened up some whole new challenges in our household and additional issues as N already struggles big time with problem solving, memory and concentration.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the school year goes...
