My nine year old daughter came home yesterday with a note from school explaining that she was going to be tested in 'spelling' in a whole new way.
No longer will my daughter just be given a word to spell during the test but she now has to use the word in a sentence, and apply a specific pre-determined grammatical concept to it.
The letter that explained how the spelling tests would work and how they would be marked was a full page long. For. a. fourth. grade. spelling. test.
Is it just me or is life getting um, harder?
I haven't been able to do my son's math questions for about a year now. Did I ever learn this stuff?
Does anyone know what happened to all the worry over acid rain? That was the big environmental issue when I was a kid. Did we solve this problem?
Oh, and is there still a hole in the ozone layer and if there is why don't we hear about it anymore?
And perhaps most importantly, does anyone know why and when they stopped putting toys in cereal boxes?
I am so old.
