How to Do Homework Without Throwing Up based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
I shared this book with my fifth grade class and they just ate it up. We read it together using an overhead projector, and now there is a waiting list for my students to check the book out of my library! I was having some big problems with class resposnibility towards homework, but now there are fewer excuses. We've even adapted a saying from the book, "We are not afraid of homework, homework is afraid of us!"
This is a wonderful book. The title and cover caught this former educator's attention right off. I know I had a few students that would have enjoyed this book tremendously. This book was written for third through sixth graders. It has tips which are presented in a humorous way which will help the students remember them. I felt like this age student will also be laughing at the other jokes throughout. I suggest parents read it first to help the child skip any parts they may find objectionable. I was given this book by NetGalley and Free Spirit Publishing in exchange for my honest review. This book may be purchased HERE!
