I wanted to post this because I found it to be really awesome. My little girl had to do this assignment about the oldest person she knows.

Here is the result:

Awwww......I LOVE it! Make me miss my classrooms. Your daughter has a very good handle on writing! How old is she again? You can be proud of her spelling and organization. I also love the parts about the candy AND the fact that grandma is caring. Glad the teacher is encouraging assignments that help children have respect for their elders!

Thanks for sharing, 'Slim, and tell your daughter GREAT JOB! Smile

I like it. That is beautiful. You can tell your daughter really cares about her great grandma.

She is a young great grandma too. Only 84!

Well Happy Birthday to Lexi! Party Girl Party

I am serious when I say keep encouraging her writing. You would not believe the writing I have seen in high school and even in college students. She looks like she is ahead of the game when it comes to writing, so make sure she keeps it up.

Seeing as we're showing off our kids homework...

Look at the equations the kids in my daughter's class posted on the board and spot the odd one out from my little miss who reckons she can't do maths.

Hope, will do. She loves school and we have her in an advanced school. She is a reader, as are the twins. I read them somewhere between 10-15 books a day.

Ed, that is awesome. I love that. 7+2, 8+1, 3+6... 76+8. Just some casual math going on here...

I filled my home with books when my boys were growing up, too (still do). My favorite times were when we read together, even when they were older. I put them in book discussion groups when they were older, too, and I would read the same books so I could discuss the books with them. There are some awesome children's and young adult literature out there. I have a box of books labeled, "books to read to my grandchildren." I feel SO bad for students who struggle with reading, because it not only carries over to every academic subject, but to everything in our lives (functional skills), too.

Awesome, CL-ED! That is too funny. Smile

Yep reading is the best. My daughter is a very good reader and loves it as opposed to maths which she says she doesn't like and isn't very good at. I'm loving that she has reached the stage that she can read for herself now though, so at least I can get a break now and then.

I love hearing about kids who enjoy reading. It is so sad to watch some struggle, even when parents are trying their best. My youngest was more of a challenge. Then we finally found a couple of authors he enjoyed, and thankfully, those authors wrote a lot of books, and he was finally on the path to reading. And I read to all three every single day and night for many years.

My middle son "cracked the code" very young, and he was my youngest reader. He was funny, because he would say to me, "Mom, I don't want to read words like rat and mat. I want to read words like emergency." lol I will never forget that. He was in kindergarten, and he was bored to tears, so we moved him to a school with more enrichment.

We're having a bit of that at the moment. She's six and they are sending her home with basic books for home reading and we are supposed to keep a record of what she has read, but she would rather sit down and read harry potter to herself. Her teacher last year was good about it and gave her some books for older kids but this year's teacher doesn't seem to have caught on.

That is the exact reason why we ended up having to move my oldest to an advanced school. The teacher didn't care to challenge her, and when we brought it up to her the response was, "Well, she did get a problem wrong yesterday."

Now that we have moved her to the advanced school, she is still testing at what they call "exceptional", but the added work load at least challenges her a bit more.

All children need to be challenged or many will get bored and some will even start with behavioral challenges if bored enough. My son's teachers were great. They put him in some special groups like Great Books and a few others (can't think of exact names right now), and they also had him do some peer tutoring to help other children. I am a really strong advocate for peer tutoring. This kept my son in the regular classroom, yet the teachers were great about differentiating the instruction in the classroom.

I often wish I had sent him to the Perpich School for the Arts when he was in High School, but I didn't have the funds. High School is when things became more difficult as far as teachers wanting to challenge him, but he made it through, and he is still an avid reader (and writer) at 27 years old.

We can always find ways to challenge our children at home, too, of course.

Sounds like you are both awesome dads! The children are blessed to have you both. Smile

Slim, your daughter and my daughter share the same birthday. It's also my mom's anniversary, my ex in-laws anniversary, my bf's dad's birthday too!

I always read to my kids when they were small. My daughter still loves to read and has instilled that in my grandson.
