This is one of Eila’s homework sheets, front and back, unfinished. Some weeks she has one sheet, some weeks two. And every two weeks she has to do a book review, which means being read a picture book, writing one sentence on it (using a capital only at the beginning), and drawing a picture. Parents are permitted to help, particularly with the book review.
So what do we think of this? I’m not sure myself. On the one hand I like her learning to write. On the other, the sheets take way longer to complete than you’d expect; she gets tired and complains, and then I have to cajole — whereas when she writes what she chooses (like her sporadically kept diary) she’s tireless. And, hey, she’s 4 years old!
