So annoyed with my sister right now. My 5 year old nephew is in kindy and he got a project this weekend. Its been going on since September. Each kid has to bring home the classroom stuffed animal...its an arthur doll...and write about its weekend. OK he is 5 in kindy, yes he can't write like that per say and yes its mostly the parents that write but thats not the goal of it all. Liam had to do something similar last year but it involved a book.
Anyway sister is all ticked off she doesn't want this dirty germy thing in her house and she is going to keep it on a chair and this is stupid I'm not in school he is and she is like he nephew doesn't care...um hello if you show ZERO enthusism then yah he is going to feed off that. Yes I do expect the school to teach my child but I understand as his parent I play a role and if I don't get involved and take an active part in his education how can I expect him too. Like I liked running around taking pictures of things in the city for his all about my town scavenger hunt but he was excited and we did learn things we didn't know about where we lived, like I liked dressing a clothes pin doll for his ansestor project and yes it was HIS project and most parents admit was a bit above their level to figure out how to dress this thing and most admit it was more their project it still got us teaching our kids something about them and sure the person I sent flat stanley too would have rather not carried a cut out doll for a week and its not even their kids project
what was that post awhile back about what about better parents?? She is my sister and all but if she is negative about something as simple as keeping an arthur journal for 3 days whats she going to do for science projects...
