Tales of a Fourth Grade Success
My nine year old son Aaron does not like going to school. He has friends, he likes lunch and recess, he just finds school boring. For several years now, he has told me that school is a waste of six hours a day. He has told me, "I could make much better use of that time at home." Aaron is sad to see the end of August and never wants the weekends to end. Therefore, I was stunned, gobsmacked really, to hear him say this last night at dinner, "I can't wait to get back to school tomorrow." When my husband and I asked why, Aaron told us it's because his teacher is reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to the class. Rock on, ladies! And by ladies, I'm referring to Aaron's fourth grade teacher and Judy Blume.
