My children are now entering into the 2011-2012 school year with enthusiasm. Walker is starting his 4th grade year while Peyton is starting his 1st grade year. When asked who was going to do better on their first day they both agreed… Peyton. There was no apprehension with either of them for their first day.
They both have homework most nights. Though I check their homework is complete I do not “correct” their homework. I will help explain when assistance is needed but I believe the teachers need to know what my children are having a harder time understanding. If I correct their work they would never know and it is not a true reflection of their capabilities. Both my children know they can come to me with questions but I won’t do their work for them. They both have great teachers again this year and I wish them the best of luck.
