    You need to check the assignment in his backpack to find out if that’s true.

    Hey Darryl, I can get you a great deal on a bridge in Brooklyn if you are interested in.

    “If you’re telling me the truth, Hammie, fine. If you’re lying? No video games for YOU until you move out of the house. Now let me ask you again, and REALLY think before you answer, Hammie. Is playing this game a school assignment that your teacher would confirm? Or not?”

    When my older daughter started getting homework (in Kindergarten!) I allowed her a little time to relax before starting her homework, where she could play or watch TV. It was a set amount of time so it never got out of hand. After a couple of months, she decided on her own to get her homework done as soon as she got home. Her younger sister picked up on this & followed suit when she started school. No, I was NOT using reverse psychology; it’s what I used to do.

    Darryl should have mentioned why he wants to go back to third grade. I’m sure Wanda would immediately have checked on this “math video game” homework assignment. Something on the computer would be more believable.

    No laughing, but my parents bought me (a boy) a Rainbow Bright lunch box. After being made fun for being gay, the box had an unfortunate accident and I magically had brown bags for my lunch. Until the ants invaded it and then I don’t know what I ate. And all that truthfully happened my third grade year.

    Another great tool for reaching kids who might otherwise not connect with math. Hats off to the teachers who work so hard and know that one-approach-fits-all doesn’t work.

    Darryl, don’t you think three years was enough in third grade. You and Tom Danby were such good friends all those years.

    Apparently 3rd grade math can be fun depending on the domain.

    A video game, for math class? That just doesn’t add up!

    That is just wrong.

    I started a library science Master’s after my history one. I quit after the introductory class, in part because i found that they were defining video gaming as a form of literacy.

    This is akin to defining group sex as a form of chastity……….

    I remember a “Space Invaders”-Type game (hey, “Type”! ☺) that was supposed to help teach “Touch-Typing”…

    I quit carrying my lunch box as soon as I figured out they would sell me food.

    The “Standard Deviants” can explain a lot.
