My four-year old brought his first homework assignment this week – 12 pages of various exercises to learn about triangles and rectangles. He’s watched his older brother trying to postpone doing his homework dozens of times this year because he always found something better to do, so I thought it’d take us a few days to go through all the worksheets.
Well, I’ll be damned! As soon as he got home, the kid didn’t want to do anything else but his homework, page by page, and he didn’t stop until he was all done. The whole exercise took him about 45 minutes – not a bad attention span for a four-year old.
We both got a good laugh when we reached the rectangle exercises and saw this page. Mama, it’s your cow of the day in my homework!
