Hari’s teacher had a very special, and unique gift for Halloween for Hari and rest of the class. She gave them a homework coupon! The coupon lets them have a free pass for one homework during the academic year. Hari is psyched and has been breaking his head over when to use it. He thinks he might use it next week “That way my homework will not be in the way mama when I practice being the goalie.” Da and I rolled our eyes rather widely and muttered under our breath.
Elementary school kids have it fairly easy here. They are required to do daily reading, and perhaps a math sheet or two for homework. But no cramming or heavy homework load like we used to have. I wonder if things have changed back home.
