Is it really the holidays?

Now always remember...they are 7 years old. They have bullied, cajolled and convinced their parents of the importance of what they had to do for Spencer bear. Who had the bigger learning curve to comply with? The children in class knew how to put in my email address, and search for an att.. Beautiful pictures and excellent writing have arrived in my inbox....collaborative learning on a different level....homework with a difference, too. Now wonder....Why did it have to be done? What has it achieved? Honourable people who want achievement for their children, supported them. Putting the C in ICT! That's what it's all about! An' it's not always about computers!
Talking, discussing, collaborating, and doing!!! This time it's Mums and Dads and offspring..to get to that point. They have risen to a challenge splendidly! I imagine they have gained some respect from their children too, by making the effort. The street cred for them is unquantifyable. Thank you to parents of P3.

I wish parents still kept up this interest when their kids reach Standard grade! My two bloggers (sounds quite pejorative in the circs!) have gone right off the boil with the holidays - or is it because I was too busy myself to take a tutorial this week?
Trouble is - there's a lot more distractions when you're 15 - exams or no exams!

My lot are still looking/ following the class/ street cred thing. I very much enjoy their naivity. But then they are only 7 and they are really pleased about other adult input in the genre. This might explain why I put Moses in as a post, not a comment.

It sure makes a change from the "what did you do at school today?" - "Nothing" discussion. Fantastic to hear about, although a shame you maybe now have extra marking?

No marking required! All done by themselves....supervised by the Mums and Dads!
