I thought I would share with you a recent blog post I wrote for www.ethicalela.com. The founder, Dr. Sarah Donovan, asked if I would write about my decision to do away with homework and reading logs. I have shared most of this information with you, at the beginning of the year, but you might find it useful reading to assess if your child is enjoying school more or reading for enjoyment.
In the classroom, I am often told, by your children, that they love school this year because "it's more fun". Although school is for learning, it should be fun to make learning more meaningful. I am seeing the results, are you?
