My son takes a break from his social studies worksheet to explain his new system for organizing homework assignments.
“I write everything down in my organizer, then I draw a happy face next to the easy assignments, a sad face next to the hard ones, and a sad face with tears next to the ridiculous ones.”
“What kind of a face did you put next to that social studies assignment?” I ask.
“Sad face. I should have put one tear. I gave reading comprehension two tears.”
“Have you ever had an assignment where you put a sad face with tears showering from both eyes?”
“I just started the system today.”
