See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My oldest daugther will start 2nd grade on Monday. We found out a few weeks ago that she has a book report due on Monday about a book of her choice that she has read over the summer. My amazing kiddo decided that she was going to read a book about Anne Frank.
Lilly has never written a paragraph before as she just finished 1st grade, so this is tough. I am trying my hardest to teach her how to do it without doing it for her. I'm asking her the set of questions they listed and she is answering them. She asked me to write down what she is saying so she didn't forget it and she is copying what I wrote down. She is almost finished thankfully. We have been doing this for a few hours now and we are both exhausted mentally.
Who in their right mind decided that it was a good idea for a child to do a book report to turn in for the first day of school when they have never been taught how to do it before? Ugh...She is doing a great job, but she is tired as am I.
ETA: Here is the finished product. I told her she is going to need to space out her words a bit more when she writes..
