    A summer vacation prep course would have great homework assignments—swimming, ball games, and relaxing with the ever-faithful Rover!

    Homework ? What a teacher…Do they remember being a kid waiting for Summer vacation ? I remember just layed back days in class before vacation…After we finished the finals, that was it, we had fun and so did the teacher…

    I’d say what happened here was indeed a summer vacation perp course for the last week – sport days, excursions…

    And then a week before school starts the teacher could stop by and give a back to school prep course.

    You should be studying for the finals, Red. The fun doesn’t begin until they are finally over.

    Had an eighth grade science teacher who always gave his final the last day of school..

    How would they do that? The grades have to be turned in at least a week before schools ends for the report cards.

    Maybe not. They mail the report cards to us a couple of weeks after school ends here.

    My 4th grader had a Market Day in the last week, where she had to make a bunch of things to “sell” to her classmates. Running around to get supplies was not exactly what I wanted to be doing at the end of school, and she had to stay up late to make her things too. I was annoyed about that.

    If I was a teacher, I would divide up the class into two teams and give them questions on all the subjects, (in the fashion of Trivia Quiz) to see how much they really learned. Do this all the last week and see how many points they can gather. But I would make sure that all the kids got a chance to answer questions so no one is skipped.

    Great Idea! It sure beats just memorizing stuff in a book.
