It amazes me how much of my kid's education burden is placed on me. When I was a kid, I never asked my mother for help with any of my homework, or class projects. And look at me now - I turned out great (college degree and union job)! Would someone tell me why I can't have it as easy as my mother did?
He really wanted to present his rock collection. Honestly, I didn't feel we had enough time to classify all his rocks. I'd have to teach him about rocks (and relearn all I've forgotten). So after much debate, I finally talked him into using his Pokemon collection. Here are a couple of pages from his presentation brochure:
I get to leave work early today (as long as we don't get flooded with work) to watch his big show. He was up at 4:00 this morning, anxious about the presentation. He couldn't sleep. He went back to bed at 4:30. Should a first grader have such stress? Maybe waiting a couple of years before having kids complete big school projects isn't a bad idea.
