Wordless Wednesday: The Many Faces of Homewok

Thank you to all my wonderful friends who sent me helpful and encouraging messages yesterday about the ressumption of the great homework war. I wanted to take a moment to clarify that we do NOT make Jonas sit at the dining room table to do his homework. It's more like a homework basecamp. Like many kids with ADHD, "Sit up, sit still and do your homework!" does not work for Jonas. Oh sure, sometimes he'll just sit and do it, but we discovered a few years ago that he concentrates better when we let him move around while he works. His teacher last year gave him a zone around his desk that he was free to move around in, as long as he was quiet and didn't disrupt the other kids in the class. This understanding works very well and we have no plans to kibosh it.

In honour of Wordless Wednesday, here's a peak at some of the many faces of homework in our house last year.


(Sometimes the hotwheels or lego even get in on the math homework!)
