Relating to the education thread... I could not believe it, but Nathan came home with a math assignment today.... fractions!!!! What? I mean it's simple stuff... like a pie in fourths with one piece darkened and they have to write 1/4, but still. I seriously think I was in 4th grade or older when we did fractions lol.

Good grief! That is so ridiculous! That was what I meant when I was talking about teaching them goofy things that will just be repeated. And you KNOW that they aren't going to remember fractions from this year to next...nor will they be using them. Why not stick to what they need to know right now and introduce that other stuff at a more appropriate time? I don't know about this country.....

I agree. This is the kind of stuff that made us decide to keep Nathan out of K until 6. I had forgotten that they said they would learn fractions in K... until today. My SIL told me that her dd worked on homework from the time she came home from school until 8 at night in 3rd grade. She had learning probs, but I'm getting nervous. How do you juggle helping everyone with homework when they are in different grades? That's not rhetorical BTW... I am really wondering! Well, we have decided that dh is going to have to be the one working the evening job soon b/c I know he won't keep up w/ kids' homework and bedtimes and I need to be the one at home. It will just run more smoothly around here lol.

hey...sorry to b___t in...... just wanted to post a correction to what I mentioned yesterday about the SSN. They don't have to know the whole number, just the last 4 digits. I just wanted to let ya'll know that! LOL....oops! Either way, kids now days are expected to be little rocket scientists by the time they graduate kindergarten.....

USMC... I know. It's crazy! He was learning Spanish in preschool. Good thing I had 4 years of it or I would have been lost in helping him with PRESCHOOL stuff ;-) Is your screen name Emily on my space BTW. I'm trying to figure out who everyone is and I only know ppl by their screen names on here... is your myspace the one with you in your wedding?
