Green School=Bye Bye Busywork


Julia's school is newly "green" so the kindergarten teachers, in an attempt to minimize paper use, have done away with the packet of homework that came home each Tuesday. It only amounted to a page nightly, which wasn't too over the top, but Julia was starting to form some very strong feelings about homework and they weren't pretty.

Now each week they must read to or with a parent several times, write in their journal twice, and choose two learning activities off of a calendar. Doable, meaningful AND green. Me likey.
