I haven’t vlogged in ages, and what better time to start vlogging again than during NaBloPoMo, when I have to come up with something new every day?

Oh, I’m just kidding! I received my share of grease spots on papers when I taught second grade. My girls are in 1st and 3rd, so the homework isn’t too bad. But they do get homework, and here’s a little tip that has been helping us get through homework time. At the beginning of the school year, we put together a Homework Kit.

How do you get through homework hour? (Yes, sometimes it’s longer than an hour for us, too!)

  1. We have a homework drawer with all the essential tools – kind of the same idea. My girls – one of them in particular – really dislikes homework, so she is always in a bad mood about it. My bigger problem is that – given their moods – homework time seems to trigger the bickering and whining. I dread it every day (which is probably not the best attitude for them to see from me!)
