Now that school is in session and the Common Core State Standards are being implemented it’s time to share some of the worksheets/homework that our kiddos are doing. Here are a couple of items from a Facebook group called “Inappropriate Common Core Lessons.”
The first item is from a 4th grader in Califorinia. When the teacher was asked what the purpose of learning this method was he said “because it will be on the test.”
The second example I’m sharing because it just cracked me up. I can see my son writing this.
How did you find your answer? Using math of course!
If you have lessons, worksheets, and lessons that you would like to share please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
