With a lack of toys and an abundance of imagination, Caitlin has had to improvise and make pretend toys to spend (some of) her days. Yes I am a pathetic parent letting my kid endure this.
Her “skills” in improvising seems to have extended into her homework.
See, they are teaching her “long” vowels, like school, food, or, feel, reel, and using a different coloured pencil for these vowels.
You guessed it. In her homework she had decided to first write the letters of the same pencil, and then literally fill in the blanks with the coloured pencil for the vowels.
I guess it gets the job done, I just hope that she will still end up learning the actual word and not finding more efficient ways to complete her writing!
No, I didn’t tell Hot Mummee about this… She may well get Caitlin to redo the whole thing!
